Six-hand Massage Techniques

Six-hand Massage Techniques

Next, let’s talk about massage therapy on different areas of the spinal column. The main thing to know: the impact should be carried out at a distance of three to ten cm on the right and left side of the spinal column. The movements should be directed upwards from the lower back to the beginning of the hair.

Massage of The Lumbosacral Spine

The greatest load is imposed exactly on the lumbosacral spine, it is almost never relaxed. That’s why in order to eliminate the strong and frequent pain in this area, the specialist must pay special attention to its treatment.

First the muscles of the buttocks must be kneaded, and only then begin to work on the problem area. Stroking movements warm up the muscles in the pelvic area. Squeezing, kneading, shaking and stroking again – all the movements are alternated. Repeat two, three times.

In the next stage the massage is squeezing and the masseur moves his fingers, made into a fist, along the spine. Finally, to soothe the tissues, stroking and shaking is done.

Neck Massage With Your Own Hands

Cervico-thoracic Massage

The neck is the most unprotected part of the human body, because it has a large number of channels with nerves and blood vessels. Therefore, massage has an excellent effect in getting rid of the restriction of neck movement.

The techniques used in this type of massage are kneading, stroking, shaking, squeezing and rubbing. The right and left areas of the spine, reflexogenic zones and places of spinal cord roots deserve special attention.

You should start massaging from the healthy side, in other words from the opposite side to that in which there is pain. The back and neck muscles should be in a state of complete relaxation – this is very important. The Dubai massage spa can be performed both in a sitting and lying position.

Neck Massage With Your Own Hands

You can massage the cervical spine yourself at home. It is not long – less than 15 minutes. Sitting – you need to move from the fourth vertebra of the sternum to the beginning of the hair.

In self-massage the same movements are used as in the classic cervical massage. You can make movements with two palms simultaneously or only one. All actions must be correct and careful. It is better to see a doctor if you are not successful. This will reduce the risk of self-injury.

4-Hand Massage Features

4-Hand Massage Features

You’ve probably seen or even participated in four-handed playing on the piano. This way of playing makes the sound much stronger and richer, which is why many piano pieces were originally written for four-handed playing. This approach has its stunning effect not only in music, but also in the melody of the human body.

The synchronized movements of the two pairs of hands, when two masters work with one client, work the muscles particularly thoroughly and deeply. Four hands massage Dubai is a kind of mystery, which plunges you into the world of your subtle sensations; it is a very unusual and creative kind of massage.

The massage, which is carried out simultaneously by two masters, has been known for a long time; it has been practiced in the East since ancient times. Historically, it is derived from the Ayurvedic oil massage. During this massage the entire body is gently worked through, except for the stomach area. Special emphasis is placed on working on the joints, spine, neck and lower face.  A 4 hand massage is always performed using oil.

Peculiarities of The 4-Hand Massage

  • Uncommonly vivid and pleasurable sensations during the procedure.
  • The tensions that have been built up over the years disappear and the body takes on a completely new form – a form of freedom and fluidity. The synchronism of movements of two masters creates unity, thanks to the feeling of each other, as well as the effect of doubled attention.
  • During the massage, a person is immersed in an atmosphere of emotional care. The four-handed royal massage relaxes through the perception of the senses and refreshes the overall perception of the world. It helps one get to know oneself from a different perspective and become calmer and more self-confident.

Four Hands Massage and State of Harmony

It has been noticed that the best effect is achieved if a massage with 4 hands is given by a man and a woman, it helps restore the balance of Yin and Yang (female and male) energy channels.

Yin and Yang serve to express light and dark, soft and hard, feminine and masculine principles in nature. If the human body is in a state of balance of Yin and Yang, it is a healthy body. If the balance between these two channels is disturbed, harmony in the body is disturbed as well, which manifests on the psycho-emotional as well as on the physical levels.

A 4-hand massage restores inner harmony and harmonious interaction of the person with the environment.

Hot Stone Massage Myths

Hot Stone Massage Myths

At exhibitions, presentations, conferences sometimes we hear statements that are not only false, but also dangerous. Here are some of them.

“You can only massage the back surface of the body with stones”. In our opinion, it is not only possible but necessary to massage the anterior surface of the thighs, the abdomen and the decollete with stones. It is only necessary to use less pressure, a gentler temperature and a physiological direction of movement.

“Massage with hot stones will relieve pain during an attack of kidney stone disease”. Any acute illness as well as exacerbation of chronic disease is a contraindication for stone therapy. Massaging with both hot and cold stones is inadmissible in urolithiasis, even in remission, as it may cause stones to move through the urinary tract.

“Applying a hot stone will help with inflammation of the joints”. It is not recommended to work on the affected joints with hot stones, it is better to use cold stones, which reduce swelling, hyperemia and pain syndrome.

“Stone therapy will help with colds”. Dangerous mistake, because the stone therapy procedure can provoke a worsening of the condition with the beginning of a fever. Fever of any origin is an absolute contraindication for stone therapy.

“A hot stone will help with a runny nose”. Any heating increases blood circulation, causes hyperemia and swelling in the treated area, so the heating of the sinuses with a runny nose – “a stick about two ends”: on the one hand, you can improve the condition, on the other – dramatically worsen the patency of the nasal passages. If there is exudate in the maxillary sinuses, heating is categorically contraindicated. With purulent maxillary sinuses it can lead to severe edema, an increase in pain syndrome and deterioration of the general condition.

“Stone therapy is contraindicated in depression”. Massage with hot stones alone can indeed worsen the course of depression. However, stone therapy using stones of contrasting temperatures, that is, both hot and – necessarily – cold, is indicated for depressive conditions. But be careful, depression should not be accompanied by exhaustion of the nervous system and asthenia.

“Women have a worse tolerance for cold than men”. Rather the opposite, as women have a different distribution of subcutaneous fat. But preferences in this matter are very individual and depend on the time of year, time of day and even mood.

Hot Stone Massage Tips

“Stone massage can be done every day”. If the procedure at our Russian massage center Mirage Spa lasts no more than 30 minutes, only hot stones are used and their temperature does not exceed 50 C, you can have such a massage every day. If the full-fledged stone therapy procedure lasts 60 minutes or more, uses stones with a temperature higher than 50C, or uses both cold and hot stones, the frequency of the procedure should be no more than 2 times a week.

“All stone therapy techniques are not different from each other”. The original techniques necessarily have their own peculiarities, as the representative of the training company usually tells us. They differ in technique, the temperature of the stones, the sequence of work on different areas, the peculiarities of placing stones under the back and on the stomach, and as a result the procedures are completely different in perception. Sometimes it is said that the stone massage is characterized by the fact that the client does not close his eyes during the procedure, but lies with the eyes open and listens to the sensations. This is most likely a feature of the particular technique, as when massaging with hot stones, when they are still only placed under the back, on the front surface of the body and palms at the beginning of the procedure, the client closes his eyes and sinks into a half-slumber.

“Ten stones are enough for a stone therapy treatment”. If using the stones as a pressure and kneading tool, you can get by with 4 pieces. If the purpose is different (see indications for stone therapy) – you will need at least 50 stones of different temperatures and sizes from 1×1 cm to 15×15 cm.

“Stones die from oil”. Apparently, what is meant is the energetic aspect of stone therapy, the notion that each stone carries healing energy that disappears when oil is applied to it. Most likely, this statement has to do with the marketing policy of a company promoting some kind of their massage product (but not the oil). Since ancient times, natural oils have been applied to stones, which was considered a sacrifice to the spirit that lives in the stone.

“Cold stones are the “minus” of the method”. The useful properties of cold have been known for a long time, and they are widely used in medicine. Exposure to cold or contrasting temperatures causes much more changes in the biochemical processes and physiology of the body. than warming. In aesthetic cosmetology, there are indications for the use of cold, but its use must necessarily be comfortable. The combination of “pleasant and useful” turns the use of cold stones from a “minus” to a “plus” of the method.

First the front surface of the body is deeply worked on, then the patient is turned over onto the stomach. The therapist works on the entire body, avoiding intimate areas. At the end of the session the patient is left in complete silence in order to prolong the state of relaxation.
