For you to perform body a full body massage in the proper way there are many things that you need to put into consideration. Having some skills in massaging is a good thing even though you are not planning to do it as a career because you might use the skills on your loved ones or your partner if they are experiencing some aches or tensions in their bodies. The first thing that you should do is creating the right mood for the massage. The room temperature should not be changed and it should be as comfortable as possible. If possible, it is also a good thing for you to light some candles and play some soft music in the background. You also need to have a towel that is soft and clean ready for use.
For you to experience a good way of doing the massage, you will need to have some oil and in that case you can use some baby oil or any type of natural oil and if you can, choose some oil which has a light scent. The individual who is to get the massage should stay in a position such that he or she is facing downwards so that the massage can be administered properly. While administering the massage, it should be started on the upper part of the body. It is important for you to see to it that you put around one spoonful of oil on your palm and rub them together until you feel some warmth. You should then apply the oil to the side of the neck as you move towards the temples.
Another thing that you should ensure is that you also administer some massage on the muscle around the neck and shoulder although that should be done in light strokes. Circular movements should be used when one is massaging the shoulders and shoulder blades. The other body part that you should focus on is the area around the backbone which should be rubbed in circular movements. You should then knead and rub the sides of the body in a gentle manner as you go up to the armpits and the shoulders. As you are doing the massage, ensure that you move from the shoulders to the hands and also rubbing the triceps and biceps.
It is also important for you to knead both palms and all the fingers each at its time. As you are massaging the lower side of the back, it is essential for you to apply more pressure. It should be administered using fingers and thumbs in circular and outwards motions. What you should do next should be to massage the sides of the body and the buttocks.
