Massage Techniques Tips Couples Foot Massages
Hi I'm Gretchen Rivas with Relax to the Max Massage Therapy and today we are going to talk about how to do a couples' foot massage. Of course you can do this in a number of different ways but you know if you are sitting on the couch watching TV there is no reason why you can't rub each others' feet at the same time. I personally prefer to get mine rubbed just alone but since we are going to be nice today and share we are both working on each others'.
Feet at the same time but it depends on how tall you are and how tall your partner is as to how well it is going to work. Somebody might have to bend a little bit more than the other but it can be done and the thing is you don't have to have any special massage oil or special stuff to do anything like this you can just use a little bit of vegetable oil from the kitchen and rub each others' feet and it will make each other feel really.
Good and you might enjoy the movie just a little bit more. That's what we do when we do a couples' massage. Of course you want to massage the bottoms of the feet if you are working with your partner and if you think you are better at it than he is then you can tell him some things that you want him to do. Massage the toes, massage the tops of the feet, massage around the ankles a little bit where it feels good, especially around the Achilles Tendon and then when you are done with that foot you can work on the other.
Massage Techniques Tips How to Become a Certified Massage Therapist
Hi, I'm Gretchen Rivas with Relax To The Max Massage Therapy. And today we're going to talk about, how to become a certified massage therapist. Most of the time what you want to do first is, to check and see what the regulations are for the state that you live in. Not all states have regulations regarding massage therapy, but, although the majority of them do. You can go to, amta.massage, which is the American Massage Therapy Associations website, and they have a list there of which states require what, and what type of certification.
They require, and that will help you begin the search to figure out what you need to do to become certified. Then you would have to find a school to complete your education and get your certification. And that website, and a couple of others on the web also have a lot of information about the different schools. And I would check on the schools before you go, ask a lot of questions, go and check the school out, make sure they do hands on training, and the people will actually get undressed for their training, because some schools they.

If you're looking for a Massage Therapist, there are several routes you can take, one is referrals from friends. People that have found a Massage Therapist that they really like their work.

Make sure that there's a fit between the two of you and that you.
Understand what kind of work that they do before you go to see them and that you feel comfortable with them over the phone 'cause actually the first meeting you have is over the phone before you ever even meet them in person. Make sure you feel comfortable with that. And then when you go there, make sure that you ask any questions you may have and that they answer them for you thoroughly and anytime during your massage, if you're not comfortable with anything, it is your right to say no or to say stop and to change the.

Massage Techniques Tips How to Do a Facial Massage
Hi, I'm Gretchen Rivas with Relax To The Max Massage Therapy and today we're going to be talking about how to do a facial massage. When you're working on the face, you always want to do a nice even strokes to begin with. Just something nice and relaxing and soothing. A nice thing to do is to take your thumbs and give a little bit more pressure around the eyes and around the cheekbones. Rubbing the temples right through here, it feels really good on people, it helps relieve headaches and can help relieve sinus congestion too,.
Especially when you work through here. It feels good to work around the ears a little bit, a few strokes down like this. It's always a nice part of the facial massage just include the ears and that. And come down with your palms across the forehead, it feels really nice stroke down the jaw bone, around the mouth. A little bit of stroke down the neck is good too to help any sinus drainage, clear on out. You can also do a little lifting, it can help with the collagen factor on the face, help give them a more youthful appearance.
Massage Techniques Tips How to Give a Hand Massage
Hi I'm Gretchen Rivas with Relax to the Max Massage Therapy and today we are going to be talking about how to give a hand massage. Whenever you are working with somebody's hand what you want to do is kind of squeeze and massage the hand altogether, the area right in here especially between the thumb and the forefinger is really needed for massage on a lot of people. You want to work that area there and it is also a very good headache point if you will press this part right here on somebody when they have a headache that.
Can help dissipate a headache on people except you don't want to do that on somebody that is pregnant and then what you want to do is bring your thumbs through the tendons of the fingers, massage that area in there and then you can pull out on each finger and massage each finger all the way to the finger tip. You can do that with two fingers like I'm doing it or you can use your thumb and fingers like this. Either way it feels really good. It depends on if you are a therapist and you are trying to save your thumbs or if you are.
Massage Techniques Tips How to Give a Back Massage
Hi I'm Gretchen Rivas with Relax to the Max Massage Therapy and today we are going to talk about how to give a back massage. Whenever you are working with someone on their back if you want to put a little oil on them because it doesn't feel really good to have it done on dry skin, you want to spread it out in a nice smooth manner. You don't want to, a lot of times people just do this type of thing and you really don't want that, you want a.
Nice smooth spreading motion when you are putting on your oil. It feels really nice to run two fingers down each side of the spine. Whenever you are working on the back you want to be careful not to rub on bone because it is not very comfortable for the client. You want to come around the shoulder blades and you can come down along the edges of the spine and back up through around the shoulder blade area and work out through there. It always feels good to do some what we call cross fiber friction which is where you are going the.
Opposite way of which the muscle runs because that helps break up muscle fibers and adhesions that can cause pain. So always go down each side of the spine and come back up through the ribs and the waist and around the shoulder blades like this and back out around through the neck. Another thing that feels really good too is if somebody has low back issues if you come back up through deep in at the waist through here. A lot of times the low back is deep within so you want to kind of come up through there and see if that is where.
Massage Techniques Tips How to Give a Good Chair Massage
Hi I'm Gretchen Rivas with Relax to the Max Massage Therapy and today we are going to talk about how to give a really good chair massage. Now I am thinking most people don't have massage chairs like I have at their office or at their home so we are going to do this at a regular chair or you might find most people just sitting at their computer or just sitting at their office wishing somebody would come by and rub their neck and shoulders. So just go ahead and drop your head a little bit right there. So when you are working on.
Somebody like that you can work through clothes, you don't have to have any special oils or anything like that and just come through and kind of work a little bit on the back and when you are doing that you can use your loose fists right here and just press in to the muscles in the back area and rub through the neck like this a little bit and rub especially along the occipital area right here at the base of the skull. It feels really good and what I like to do is do a little lift where you just kind of use the forehead and the.
Base of the skull and lift up and that kind of leaves a lot of tension in peoples' necks and helps them. You can do a little squeeze in the trap area and down the arms it feels good. Stretch them back a little bit and open up that pec area and rub this right here on people, that usually helps. Just kind of work that and squeeze it a little bit and rub some and they never want you to stop because that is how it feels, good and that is how you.
