Massage oil decreases the friction created on the skin and prevents the pulling of hairs.
Don’t use too much: The less oil, the greater the friction and the deeper the pressure.
Use slower movements for a soothing or calming response.
When applying pressure with finger or thumb, provide support with the other fingers and thumbs. Otherwise, you will wear your thumbs out!
Massage Patient Comfort:
If the patient is uncomfortable in the lower back, ankles, neck or shoulders, place cushions as required under the whole length of the torso, and/or under the ankles, the shoulders, or the side of the head.
Pour the massage oil onto your hands first while doing a Male to Male Body Massage in and then apply (too cold otherwise!) Once the massage is started, keep a hand on the person at all times so that there are no surprises.
Avoid direct pressure on bony processes.
