حساب المتاجرة If the client for example has any serious condition then a letter from their doctor would be necessary to give permission for the massage to proceed.
I always get clients to sign a disclaimer in any event that they are undertaking the massage freely and quite fully understanding any risks involved however slight. That is the legal and professional side of things.
On a practical note of course the masseur should have clean short nails, hair tied back, wear a suitable tunic and minimum jewellery just a wedding band is permissable and of course an immaculate appearance.
Most clients are keen to try different aromatherapy oils, for example if the client seems stressed then I may suggest Rose Geranium of Geranium Bourbon (a slightly more expensive oil due to the distillation process) or Lavender which all have calming properties.
I have a client recovering from shingles and she loves a mixture of Manuka oil and Geranium Bourbon – a lot of oils can be blended together with a carrier oil.
It is useful to note which oil is used and if the client returns for another massage he or she can be asked if this particular oil helped in any way or if they would like to try a different one.
It is useful to give the client information and I always give an after care leaflet, massage affects people in different ways there are physical symptoms, drowsiness, increased thirst and urine output and while these do not always occur is useful for the client to be aware of.
The toxins from the body are released in a good massage so hence the need to drink plenty of water rather than tea or coffee to avoid dehydration.
It is always a good idea to relax as much as possible for the first few hours after a relaxing massage!
Facial massage with a good oil blended especially for facial use – can be extremely beneficial, it can even help erase fine lines and certainly improve condition of skin – especially when following a mini facial i.e. a deep cleanse and exfoliate procedure – and facial massage is a lovely relaxing experience often clients doze off while enjoying one!
There are many different massage techniques, tapotement is one used for the face which literally is tapping fingers over the skin and feels rather good.
Massage starts of with a stroke called Effleurage which is a gentle spreading massage to distribute the oils or massage medium and is useful to start and end treatment.
There are other strokes, Pertrissage is the name given to kneading movements a circular movement where the hand moves the skin on deeper tissue, the hands do not move over the skin except to the next part to be treated, this can help with tension aches and pains, and lymphatic drainage ie the lymph glands under the arms drain from the area round the scapula or shoulder blade.
Tapotement also include hacking, pounding and cupping which are more aggressive movements but not as bad as they sound!
I always check that the client is comfortable with the pressure.
A full body massage includes the abdomen which can be very helpful with clients who have IBS or other digestive problems.
It is vital when giving a back massage that the area round the kidneys is avoided with the firmer movements.
Finally it is good to just stroke the back firmly 2 or 3 times to indicate the treatment is at an end.
I hope this is of some information to anyone hoping to try a massage!
