Massage in Ealing – Do You Want to Be Better at Giving Back Massage?
Many individuals like getting a massage but very few people feel comfortable offering a massage to someone else. Most people are usually afraid of hurting someone else. The fear of not helping enough is a big one. We are scared that the individual getting the massage won’t like what we’re doing. You will be happy to learn that anybody can learn how to give a terrific massage each time they want to do just that. Here are a few tips on how to give an impressive back massage.
The first thing that you should do is be sure that the individual is comfortable when he or she lies down. They must be laying down on a surface that is firm yet soft. There’s no need for a massage table table but you can have them lie down on a bed. If they are lying on the floor, spread a few soft blankets, towels or a mat so that the person will feel comfortable. If the person wishes to keep his or her shirt on, be sure that it is of a soft material so there will be less friction and scraping.
Start out with a couple of basic rubbing. Using the full flat side of your hands, rub slowly up from the lower back area toward the neck. Put some pressure into this rub but dont start with the full on massage yet. Start at the base of the person’s back and then move your hands up the back then across the shoulders and then back down the back. Make the loops smaller as you do this step a few more times so that the entire back can get loosened up.
You can generate good and pointted pressure when you use the heels of your hands. Move the heels of your palms in small circles beginning in the middle of the base of the back and then working out toward the sides, upwards and then back toward the spinal column until you’ve done this to the entire back of the person.
Try sitting on one of the sides of the individual you are massaging. Then, position one hand on top of the other and dig into the back a little bit with just your fingers. Start with the spine and push steadily away from the spine, across your back and then very gently rub your hands back toward the backbone. Do this step again as you move upward along the individual’s back and then do the same things on the other side of the person’s back.
Massage the spinal column. Starting out with the base of the spinal column, work your way up each of the sausage like muscles on either side of the spinal column by rubbing in little circles with a couple of fingers or your thumbs. Massage each node at least five times each so that you can work up a little bit of friction. Work all the way up one side of the spine and then knead the other side.
It is important too to relax the person in between each section of the massage that you are offering. For instance, after applying one technique, perform the basic rub we talked about at the start of the article for a couple of minutes.
