Excerpt from The Glasgow Medical Journal, Vol. 31: January to June, 1889

From time immemorial, the practice of Massage has been known to the Fijians, from whom the Samoans first, and then the Tongans, learned the art. The process consists in rubbing and kneading the part, the operation being sometimes con tinned for hours; it stimulates the circulation and relieves pain, and is commonly used in abdominal disease. The old native doctors have great faith in massage, and it is commonly practised by them.
