In western culture, people are often reluctant to have physical contact with each other even though being touched in a warm, carefull and respectfull manner, is one of the most important basic needs of every human being. Getting touched is healing: it relaxes, gives you energy and makes you more aware of your body.
Massage is the art of touching and being touched. It does not matter whether you are massaging or getting massaged yourself. Both can have an equaly deep intense effect. The three most important starting points for a relaxation massage are: care, attention and coordination. If you always keep this in mind when you massage, you will not do anything wrong.
Do you give a massage once in a while, but you think; Am I doing well enough?
Do you feel tired after giving a massage?
Do you want to learn more about giving a massage?
