Overview

A good massage is as enjoyable to give as to receive, and with the right guidance and a little practice everyone is capable of giving a wonderfully therapeutic massage. This lavishly illustrated practical guide brings together the very best traditional massage techniques with detailed step-by-step instructions from leading massage therapists. The book is divided into three sections. The first, "Massage," describes the basic techniques - effleurage, petrissage, friction and tapotement - and then proceeds to detail a full body massage from head to toe. Instructions for baby massage and older people are also included. The second section, "The Sensual Touch", addresses erotic massage between partners, and the last section, "Reflexology," covers the popular and effective system of using acupressure points on the feet to reduce stress, improve circulation, clean the body of impurities and toxins, and revitalize energy levels. Americans are relying more and more on alternative methods of achieving and maintaining the wellness of both the body and spirit, making The New Guide to Massage an invaluable reference for integrating massage into a healthy regimen.
