3. The Massage Giver Shouldn’t Be Hurt
One of the problems beginner massage givers face is that they get tired so soon and stop massaging before they wanted. According to experts, simplest way to solve this is to use gravitational force, not just your grip and finger power. Let’s explain how to do it…
Choose a right spot to do it. You should not try to start massaging when your partner is sitting beside you one the couch or standing by your side. Bring him/her in front of you, if possible, ask him/her to lay on the bed or any other soft surface and then start massaging. In this position you will find it easier to put the pressure easily with your palms by using gravity.
Remember: Don’t use only fingers to give the massage. Use your palms to put pressure. It will make the job easier for you and more enjoyable to the receiver.
4. Don’t Forget to Ask for Preference
As a giver you should be relaxed, supporting and compassionate. Don’t ignore the fact that everybody is different. Sometime we need more focus on one area than others.
Some people like to start massaging from head and neck, some like to start from middle, while some like to start massage from foot. Sometimes our leg gets more tired and we would like to have more focus on that area.
Before starting the massage ask the receiver where they should get more focus. You can try some of love massage techniques to impress your partner and increase intimacy. After all, there is no hard & fast rules. These are just techniques to make the massaging session more effective and enjoyable for both giver and receiver.
