During your treatment, your therapist will focus on areas of your body where you can feel tension and pain to release the knots in your muscles and restore their elasticity. Your therapist may use his or her fingertips, knuckles, hands, elbows and forearms on the areas where you feel tension and pain.
For the best results, your massage therapist will use a combination of oils with massage strokes that are slower and deeper to that of a classic massage to cause friction which is applied across the grain of the muscles. This enables the blood to flow around your body properly.
Your muscles will need to be relaxed and you may be asked to breathe deeply to enable your therapist to reach the deeper musculature.
