Types Of Massage Strokes


The Fan Stroke

In this, you put the palms on the mid-back, with the fingers away from the spine. Apply pressure on the sides of the spine, rather than directly pressing on it. Proceed upwards, until you reach the shoulder blades and neck and then move back to the ribs.

The Circling Hands

In this type of massage stroke, the hands lay flat on the back, with the fingers moving in clockwise motion on the lower back. As you move up the back, move the hands and fingers in anticlockwise motion. Make sure that the hands are directed at the sides, away from the spine. Remember, the right hand is used to massage the left side and the left hand is used to massage the right side.

Petrissage

Petrissage is the motion of the hands and fingers in a way that would press the flesh and muscle. Using one hand, hold a muscle group and tightly press it. When one of the portions is done, move to the next muscle group. Repeat the process, until you have covered all areas of the back, from low to high and left to right. Now, alter the hand and repeat the process.

Raking

In this technique, the hands rest on the shoulder, with the fingers wide apart. The hands are moved down the back, ‘raking’ the flesh. After this, one hand moves upwards and the other downwards, simultaneously. Repeat the process, altering the direction of hands

@stephy: u can email your enquiries to my friend at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
you tell her what you need, she wil custom-blend for u. I also tried her cleansing oil which is not bad too. No chemicals in it.

@sapphireblue: If you are aching badly, it must be quite some bad aching. No quick fix. But I believe that chiropractic helps.
