A massage is something most people look forward to as a way to sooth and relax themselves after a stressful day. The massage should be done using rhythmic and smooth movements, never leaving a customer’s hand or arm untouched during the massage. You should try not to break contact, until you are moving on to the other hand. Massage is also beneficial to breaking down inflammation, and to move any toxins through the body. A relaxing massage therapy makes a person feel light and stress free. Nonetheless, massages can’t be performed on every person, there are some exceptions that professionals need to keep in min, and those are:
First, ask about any health problems. There are some conditions where massage should not be offered. Never perform massage on people suffering with the conditions listed below.
- Skin allergies and inflammations
- Heart problems
Once a massage has begun, try not to speak, as this will guarantee total relaxation and a sense of peace. Use oil or lotion to properly moisturise the hands and arms. The lotion should contain jojoba and grape seed oil. Jojoba is very moisturising and resembles the oils which our bodies create naturally, so it will calm the skin, with little risk of reactions. Grape seed oil has regenerative and restructuring ingredients which allow more control of a person’s skin retaining moisture.
