“The body of one who uses massage regularly does not become affected much even if subjected to accidental injuries or strenuous work. By using massage regularly, a person is endowed with pleasant touch, trimmed body parts and becomes strong, charming and least affected by old age”.

Charak Samhita Vol.1, V:88-89
