If you want to administer a full body massage correctly there are many issues that you should put in mind. It is important for you to know how to perform the massage correctly even if you don’t intend to do it as a career since there may come a time that you require such skills in order to get rid of tensions and aches from the bodies of people who are close to you. There are some things that you should do and the first one should be making the mood right for the massage. You need to ensure that the room temperature is the same and be as comfortable as you can make it. If you can, you should also put some candles on and put on some soft music in the background. You also need to have a towel that is soft and clean ready for use.
For you to do the massage in an easy manner, you should have some oil, preferably baby oil or some natural oil if you can get some and if possible choose some with a light scent. The person who is being massaged is supposed to lie down facing downwards so that the massage can be done in the right manner. The upper torso should be the one that the massage is first done. You should make sure that you have some oil on your palm like one spoonful and rub both your palms together until they get some warmth. You should then apply the oil to the side of the neck as you move towards the temples.
Another thing that you should ensure is that you also administer some massage on the muscle around the neck and shoulder although that should be done in light strokes. For the shoulders and shoulder blades, you should rub them in circular movements. The next part of the body that you should concentrate on is the backbone area and that should be rubbed in circular motions. The other thing that you should do is knead and rub the sides of the torso in a gentle way and you should also do that to the armpits and the shoulders. It is essential for you to move from the shoulders to the hands as you ensure that you rub the biceps and triceps.
The other important thing that you need to ensure is that you knead both palms and all the fingers but one at a time. When concentrating on the lower back, you need to ensure that you apply some more pressure. It should be administered using fingers and thumbs in circular and outwards motions. The other thing that you should do is to massage the buttocks and both sides of the body.
