Full Body Massage Techniques Used:
Slide or glide over the skin
(with smooth continuous motion(effleurage) in many different ways to suit the body)
Apply natural oils with pressing of the skin (compression)
Effleurage with Compression
Petrissage(a techniques of lifting and wringing or squeezing soft tissues in a kneading motion or by pressing and rolling the tissues under the skin under or between the hands, performed with one or two hands, depending on the size of the muscle or muscle group, in a rhythmic motion).
We take care to avoid pinching or bruising the tissues and not to massage too long in one area.
We adjust the pressure accordingly dependent on the condition/tolerance of the client.
Superficially warming friction by applying a small amount of natural oil when warming up the area.
If no lotion or oil is preferred we apply a light compression to the area for warming.
Effleurage and rapid percussive rhythmic movements(tapotement)
Effleurage and tapotement(the amount of force to use and degree of stiffness of our hands depends on your body area receiving this technique
We avoid abrupt removal of touch with a continuous sense of touch throughout the session.
We apply smooth transitions with an orderly sequence.
We drape(cover) your body without having you exposed and uncomfortable to provide clear professional boundaries and to keep you warm.
Rhythm of the massage is smooth and evenly applied
Pacing And Speed:
We massage at a Moderate speed.
Speeds are blended in with your rate of breath.
Massaging with the breath promotes deeper relaxation.
Relaxation massage will be slower paced without tapotement or minimal use of tapotement.
If you request more attention to your neck and shoulders or legs and feet or if certain areas of your body need more specific attention then those areas will receive more massage time within the overall session.
We pay close attention to details throughout the whole session and modify the routine to meet the needs of the client to accomplish the therapeutic and relaxation goal of the full body massage session.
