Massage Therapy Success

Massage therapy in itself is both an art and a science.

This entails exerting pressure over a certain body part using fingers, fist, elbow, feet, or in some cases equipment.Focus in mostly placed on deep tissues,soft tissues,and muscles

A massage can be carried out whilst the client is in any of the following positions:

  • Lying down on the belly
  • Lying on the back
  • Seated upright
  • Inclining on a chair with face down

The position taken up will be informed by several factors including:

  • Age of the client
  • Area to be massaged
  • Comfort of the client
  •  Equipment available in the massaging room

That said, a massage session cannot be carried out on any client without a proper assessment is done, neither can it be undertaken by everyone. This is so because massage in itself is a therapy that requires utmost skill on the part of the masseuse.Hence need for one to engage services of a trained massage therapist.

Why a Massage Therapy

There following are some of the reasons why people choose to visit a masseuse:

  •  To relax their body muscles
  • For therapeutic purposes
  • For  general well being
  • For pleasure

Given the amount of pressure exerted with an aim of attaining relaxation,every therapist should strive to achieve the required training in accredited schools.

The type of massage required will greatly influence the type of skills employed. This could include kneading, sliding, shaking or friction.

Massage Therapy Success: Equipment Required

one can employ  several techniques whilst  carrying out girls massage, table shower massage, sensual massage, sauna massage, couples massage

Everyone who sets out to have a massage parlor should endeavor to have the following equipment:

  • An adjustable  heavily padded relaxation bed
  • Comfortable chairs
  • Massage stools
  • Foot rests
  • Arm rests
  • Massage cushions
  • A dry water bed
  • Towels and gowns
  • Massage oils, lotions, and creams
  • Massage  body rocks
  • Audio music system

  • Well positioned sinks with comfortable headrests

Given that one need not provide massage services in a fixed location, every masseuse should endeavor to have portable versions of the above equipment. Massage services can be offered in hospitals, spas, beauty parlors, offices, homes, etc
