Here’s a fun fact. Every time you spend a relaxing hour or two at Borgata’s spa’s getting one of our signature massages, you’re engaging in something that people have been doing for more than 4,300 years.
Really, the first indication of massages was found in the Tomb of Akmanthor (also known as “The Tomb of the Physician”) in Saqqara, Egypt which has a depiction of two men getting foot massages. The tomb dates to 2,330 BC.
By 700 BC massage was a pretty standard practice in Asian medicine, so the point is it’s been around a long time. Couple that with the ancient Greeks love of baths, and you get the history of spas…
