What can I use for massage without oil?
Massage gels, creams, and lotions: Instead of oil, massage therapists often use specially-formulated professional massage gels, creams, and lotions.
How do I give the best massage?
The person you’re massaging should be lying face down on a supportive surface (firm mattress or a carpeted floor) with her arms down by her sides; have her turn her head to one side, switching halfway through. Placing a pillow or small, rolled towel under the shoulder she is facing can help ease neck tension.

Can you massage with Moisturiser?
In general, it’s best to avoid scented oils and lotions, as some clients are extremely sensitive to smells, and the wrong scent could ruin their massage. If you want to use an essential oil or other scent, run your plan by the client prior to the session.
What is dry massage?
It is a dry massage therapy and does not use any oils or lotion. Instead it is performed using deep compressing, rhythmic pressing, and stretching actions. The pressure, tension, and motion or vibration movements used during massage improve regional blood circulation.
What is Effleurage massage technique?
Effleurage is a massage therapy technique which encourages waste products to leave the body via the lymphatic system. A system that helps the body get rid of waste. Effleurage is also used to increase the blood circulation and prepares the muscle for more vigorous techniques.
How do I give my man the best massage?
Move to one side of your partner and begin a deeper massage with your fingertips. Splay out your fingertips and lay one hand directly on top of the other so you can apply twice as much pressure. Starting at the lower back, push down firmly, moving away from your partner’s spine out toward his side.
How do I give my partner a massage?
Keep your back straight while massaging and use the weight of your body to put pressure, rather than just your hands. Before you start, place your hands on your partner’s back, and take several deep breaths together. Set an intention to be the giver, and honor the gift you are about to give your partner.

How often should you self massage?
Generally we recommend 5-10 minutes a day, massaging slowly and focusing on muscle trigger points for 30-60 seconds. Provide pressure, but try to not be too aggressive, so you loosen the tissue rather than bruise the tissue.

Can massage change your face?
