Majority of men and women love getting a massage but very few people feel comfortable offering a massage to someone else. Most people are ordinarily afraid of hurting someone else. The dread of not helping enough is a huge one. We’re scared that others aren’t going to like what we are doing. We found the best is to have a professional massage therapy cary do the work for you. The good news is that you can learn how to give a great massage every time you wish to do so. Here is how you can give a fantastic back massage each time you want to.
It is vitally important that the person be comfortable while he lies down. They have to be laying down on a surface that is firm enough but still soft. You don’t need a massage table but you might have them lie down on a bed. If they are lying on the floor, place some soft blankets, towels or a mat so that the person will feel relaxed. If the massage-ee wishes to keep his or her shirt on, be sure that the shirt is made of a softer material to avoid accidental scraping and friction build up.
Start with a few simple rubs. Use the full flat side of both hands to rub from the lower back area toward the neck (do this in a slow manner). Apply a bit of pressure into this but do not use full massage pressure yet. Start out at the base of the back and glide your hands up, along with either side of the spinal column toward the neck then across the shoulders and back down the back. As you continue doing this, make your loops smaller and smaller so that you can be sure to cover the entire back.
You can provide good and pointed pressure when you use the heels of your hands. Work the heels of your palms in little circles beginning in the middle of the base of the back and then working out toward the sides and then upwards and back in until you’ve massaged the whole back.
Sit on one side of the person who is on the receiving end of your message. Next, put one hand on top of the other and thrust into the back using only your fingers. Begin with the backbone and push steadily away from the backbone, across your back and then very gently rub your hands back toward the backbone. Do this again as you massage up the back and then repeat on the person’s other side.
Work out the spine. Begin at the base of the person’s spine and then work up all of the sausages like muscles on each side of the spinal column with two of your fingers or your thumbs. Build up some friction in each node by rubbing each one at least five times. Massage your way all the way up one side of the spinal column and then repeat the process on the other side of the spine.
One of the things to keep in mind as you work through these massage techniques is that it is best to re-relax your person between each portion of the massage you’re giving. This means that after using one technique, perform the basic rub that you used at the beginning of the massage for a few minutes.
