Having been a Massage Therapist for over 7 years, I have been fortunate to work in many different environments; ranging from the more spiritually attuned premise to those of a clinical nature. Having said this, I know that a lot of what I was taught was learned through the art of being “hands on” and learning to listen to my inner voice. In this article I will teach you some hidden secrets that will take your massage skills to a whole new level!
Thai massage is also known by many other names. It is also known as the Ancient Siamese Bodywork, Buntautuk style, traditional massage, Thai Classical or traditional Thai Medical Massage, Thai Yoga, Ancient Massage, Yoga Massage, Passive Yoga, northern style Thai massage, Old Medicine Hospital Style, Thai Yoga Massage, the Bodywork and Assisted Yoga. For those who have already experience this kind of massage they say it is more energizing and more rigorous. That is why it is also called a yoga massage because the therapist uses his hands, knees, legs and feet to move the client in a yoga-like stretches. Some would even say it’s just like doing yoga without really doing it.
A good sensual massage should involve all the senses, not just touch. Scented oils will include her sense of smell in the experience and enhance the overall dodoanma process. Using massage oil can smooth the glide of your hand against her body and reduce any friction that may cause pain. Some common oils which you can use are sweet almond oil, sunflower oil, avocado oil and grape seed oil.
Getting a massage together will give the two of you a chance to bond and get closer. There is nothing more romantic than talking to your loved one while receiving a relaxing massage. As a professional is giving you a massage, you can catch up with your partner and ask how he has been. This is especially beneficial for couples who work long hours and do not always get to see each other.
This leads to an ever developing evolution of massage techniques. Without that there would be no growth, no spontaneity, no improvement. Of course there are traditionalists who believe that everything should be done like it has been done for hundreds or thousands of years. And that can also be a good thing. In this way a core style can be preserved and maintained as a bench mark against which newer styles can be measured. And some traditional systems are very good the way they are.
There are also different techniques like rolling, kneading, and tapping. These are typically the techniques that a professional masseuse will perform on you. Kneading is usually the most common and it is done just like how you would knead dough.
The other reason of having one is because it’s actually a lot cheaper! Think about it. Three thousand hours of massage therapy the chair can give you in just one purchase. Compare it to a massage that runs $65 per hour plus tip from a therapist.
Tip: Soothing strokes that are long and flowing are used to settle the nervy dog. Never touch the head when trying to settle a dog. Always start at the neck and draw an open hand all the way to the tail. The trick is to never massage for too long. No more than 10 strokes is often a good starting point. Repeat at least three times across the day, ensuring you are relaxed and not rushed. The dog is very sensitive to your emotions.The pressure should be to a depth where you can feel the contours of the muscles and not too deep to cause pain.
