How To Give A Massage – Tips And Techniques On How To Give A Great Massage bestmassagedevices.com / The ability to give someone else a great massage is a very useful skill! It could, for example, be a very thoughtful surprise to give to someone that will go a long way. Not only to impress but perhaps even make up for any screw-ups in the past. Who would honestly turn down a massage? There are not many things in life that can feel as relaxing and soothing than receiving a great massage that releases all that bad muscular tension. Giving a great massage yourself comes with a significant bargaining power to convince your partner to give you a massage (even if it is third time asking within a week). My whole life I have been a massage junkie, and I can honestly say that becoming better at giving massages myself has made it easier for me to get a massage from my wife. There are many techniques that have helped me become better at giving a great massage, below you will find a long list of the techniques that have helped me the most. How To Give A Massage (general tips) Tip 1: Don’t Push Too Hard – Be Gentle Many people will do more harm than good when they are pushing too hard. Additionally, everyone has different personal preferences as to how hard they prefer their massage. Even if your partner likes a rough massage, it is always good to start out light and gradually increase the pressure. Tip 2: Move Around With Slow Movements Don’t rub hard or fast. It is very likely going to irritate your partner’s muscles. Therefore you should only use slow and even strokes or kneading. 1/5

Tip 3: Use Your Whole Body You can get tired very fast if you just use your hands and forearms. In order to avoid getting tired very fast use your whole body and move around often. Of course, you should be using the weight of your body gently. Tip 4: Avoid Bones And Joints Altogether If you massage bones and joints it is easy to end up bruising and hurting your partner. Under certain situations, some joints could actually benefit, but this should be left to the professionals. Never massage directly on the spine! Tip 5: Be Delicate With Thin Muscle Tissue Move with care when you are massaging tissue that runs over the ribs and shoulder blades. In general, take care when massaging close to knees, elbows, and shoulders. Give Good Neck Massage – The Easy Way Tense and stressed muscles around the neck are normal It likely either to do with the many hours sitting in front of a computer, or some bad posture when sleeping. To our advantage, it is such an easy spot to give a massage! How you give good neck massage is simply by placing your palms on the back of the neck and create light pressure with your thumb on one spot and the other four fingers on the other. With slow motions pull With slow motions pull your hands toward the back of the neck while squeezing thumb and fingers together on the tissue around the neck. Avoid putting pressure on the front of the neck (feels like being choked). Also, there are big arteries around the neck so avoid putting too much pressure or holding too long in the same spot as this could prevent blood flow. Finally, avoid putting pressure on the indent behind the ears as this is a very sensitive spot. How To Give A Back Massage The different techniques and motions for giving a back massage are countless! I find that if you want to give a great back massage, then you need to incorporate different techniques and see how your partner respond to them. With both hands placed apart work the tissue in circular motions. You can use your palms, fingertips or knuckles. With palms or fingertips apply pressure in bursts while keep moving up and down the back in a rhythmic motion. You can also use the kneading technique on the back (think bread dough), but that is best only to use it on the “fleshier” parts of the back. Use your core and hips for applying pressure rather than your hands and forearms. Pro Tip For Lower Back Massage This requires the partner to be lying down on the stomach, as you need your own legs on each side (straddling). Put one hand on the lower back muscle with fingers pointing away from the spine. Place your second hand on 2/5

the top of the first hand. Using your own body weight gently push down with the heels of your hands into your partner’s muscle in a motion that is pushing away from the spine. Remember to do both sides! How To Give A Foot Massage Take your partner’s foot in both hands. First, use the palm of your hand to slide over the bottom of your partner’s foot back and forth a few times. By using your thumbs, apply pressure and slide from the ball to the heel. You switch it up by using circular and criss-cross motions. How You Should Give Hand Massage Take your partner’s hand and hold it with both of your own hands. Using your thumbs apply pressure to the “meatier” tissue in your partner’s palms. You can do the same to each of your partner’s fingers but avoid the joints and don’t pop the knuckles. BONUS TIPS: How To Give A Massage How To Give A Sensual Massage A perfect sensual massage is easy to do, you just have to add few things. It is not very demanding and will go a long way to impress, especially if it is a woman. First, set up a nice ambiance around the person getting the massage. Use calming music, fragrances like lavender, rose or jasmine and use dim lighting. An easy solution would be to use candle lights with fragrance. Use extra soft pillows, towels, and blankets to make the partner as comfortable and relaxed as possible. 3/5

Good quality massage oil can really go a long way to enhance the experience. This helps for any type of massage by the way Finally, you need to be very attentive and present in the moment. Pay close attention when you are giving the massage and “listen” to your partner’s body and how he or she is responding. You should not be talking. How To Give A Therapeutic Massage Overworked muscles often shorten in length resulting in pain and decreased range of motion. In more severe cases the muscle tissue can get stuck in painful lumps known as muscle knots. A massage can be a powerful way to treat such muscle knots. Bear in mind that a therapeutic massage is actually not meant to feel good or relaxing when the problematic muscle tissue is being worked. But, a relaxing and soothing massage to warm up with is a great way to start before massasing directly on the painful spot. Ensure that the muscle is warmed up by massaging it thoroughly. If possible do some long strokes up and down close to the painful spot. Now, with a knuckle or thumb press directly into the knot and hold it. This part is not supposed to feel good, but you should, of course, take cues from your partner if the pain is too much. Have the partner take deep breaths and focus on relaxing the muscle rather than tightening it. Press down until you feel the muscle relax. The muscle knot should release or at least some parts of it. Stubborn muscle knots can take several massages to get fixed. After the knot has been worked massage the muscle gently to make it relax. This will help prevent it from tightening up again. 4/5 For More Great Information About Massages And How To Perform Them Check Out: ——-> BestMassageDevices.com
