Do you want to improve the massage techniques you use? Do you even have any idea what you are doing? If not, read this article to learn the basics. You will be surprised when you learn that massages really aren’t all that hard to learn about giving.

Before massaging someone, experiment and provide options for using different oil types. This is particularly important as each person reacts differently to various oils. You need to have the oil on the skin in order to reduce the friction during the massage.

Knowing body language will help with your massage. Their face may express some of their feelings, as will the muscles themselves. As you progress in your technique, your ability to read the body through your hands will increase. When the body feels tense, you may be applying too much pressure.

If you’re going to get a massage, be sure to eat an extremely light meal before it. If you overeat, your full stomach could end up making you uncomfortable during the massage and end up tainting the entire thing. Be sure to eat something healthy and light to ensure that you can have the best experience possible.

Think about finding a massage therapist who makes house or office calls. Lots of therapists cut out costly overhead by working in clients’ homes or offices. This allows you to get massages at a reduced cost and it keeps you from having to spend time and money traveling to their location.

Slow movements during a massage are more soothing. If you are using your thumbs to apply pressure, be careful not to put all your weight on your thumbs. This could cause them to tire. Support your hand with your other fingers. Use your weight to your advantage to avoid tiring out.

Do you think you have the knowledge to greatly improve your ability to give a massage? Implement the advice given and practice what you’ve learned in order to improve your massage skills. The trick is to practice the techniques until you get a feel for the perfect massage.
