Major Massage Therapy Techniques

It is just like meeting your physician; a massage therapist will clear all your questions about the treatment before it gets started.

In the beginning, you may feel little shy to the programme, but the therapist will clear this soon through his or her interaction. A relaxed environment has to be created first before the application of massage technique. For this, the massage room will be a dimly lit with soft music playing.

Some use aromatherapy also, with the room having a calming smell because of the use of aromatherapy oils. Aromatherapy oils prevent friction. After the therapist permit you to disrobe and you have to put up with the gown provided to you.

Once you are settled on the table, the therapist will explain to you that your “private parts” will never be touched or exposed during the massage and will disclose to you what are the parts need massaging and why.

Drink lot of water after the massage, which will relax muscles, stimulate blood circulation, soften skin and nerves, make tendons and joint more flexible, and eliminate toxins from your system.
The Deep Connective Tissue Massage Therapy Technique

Since this technique works on the deep connective tissues and muscles, it is effective for treating conditions such as neck pain, lower back pain and whiplash.
