Basic Hand Skill
1. Swidish Massage
Swedish massage is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology. Most people get a 30 to 60 minutes Swedish or deep tissue massage, but 90 minutes gives the therapist more time to work the muscle tissue and achieve results.
In all Swedish massage, the therapist lubricates the skin with massage oil and performs various massage strokes. These movements warm up the muscle tissue, releasing tension and gradually breaking up muscle "knots" or adhered tissues, called adhesions. Swedish massage promotes relaxation, among other health benefits.
Before the massage, the therapist should ask you about any injuries or other conditions that he or she should know about. Things you would want tell a therapist include areas of tightness or pain, allergies, and conditions like pregnancy. You can also tell them up front if you have a preference for light or firm pressure. It's best not to get a massage if you are ill.
After the consultation, the therapist instructs you how to lie on the table -- normally face down, and underneath the sheet or towel -- and then leaves the room. He or she will knock or ask if you are ready before entering.
2. Meridian Massage
Also known as ‘Tui Na’, Chinese meridian massage is an important and popular therapy of traditional Chinese medicine.
It is a unique form of remedial massage typically used in conjunction with other Chinese medicine therapies such as acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. However, a meridian massage by itself can be wonderfully relaxing especially when it targets your individual health issues.
Tui Na describes the various hand forms used to stimulate related acupuncture points, channels and muscles. Chinese massage can be used alone to improve circulation and strengthen the body, or in synergy with acupuncture and herbs for the treatment of many diseases.
With the hand forms of pressing, pushing, pinching, rolling, tapping, grasping etc., it can:
Stimulate the related points, channels and muscles of the body
Improve blood circulation and metabolism
Regulate the flow of the "Qi"
Remove stagnation and toxins
Balance internal organs
Recover the functions of the tendons, bones and joints
Eliminate tiredness and fatigue
Cure diseases and strengthen the body
At FANA BODY CARE, our practitioners may integrate Chinese massage and swidish massage into your treatment plan together with skin scraping and Chinese herbal medicine.
The Nudity Factor
During a massage you are generally nude underneath a towel or sheet. The therapist uncovers only the part of the body he/she is working on, a technique called draping. If the nudity gets you out of your comfort zone, you can keep your underwear on, and many newcomers do.
