How to Give a Full Body Massage A great way to rid the body of stress and sore muscles is to render it with a full body massage, using these basic steps: see to it that the room is comfortable; use a specific massage oil; begin massaging the feet and work your way up the legs; move from the lower body to the upper back; massage the neck and shoulders followed by the hands and arms; and finish massaging with the head. A full body massage starts in a relaxed place ant atmosphere, so the first thing to do is to make the room comfortable for your client to lie down and rest following these steps: make sure the client has somewhere to lie down comfortably, such as a bed or a proper massage table and cover the surface with a soft towel; since your client will be partly undressed, see to it that the room is nice and warm; and, also, see to it that the room is privately used where it is free from any sorts of disturbance. Lighted candles can also help in producing a relaxed atmosphere, so turn the lights down and use candles with a light scent, such as lavender or sea breeze, to help create a tranquil place. Choosing to play a soothing music taken from the sounds of nature or a gentle, classical song can truly relax a person. Body massage always comes with a massage oil, therefore, use natural oil with just a few drops of a light scent and rub it warmly first on your hands before applying body massage to your client so your hands are prepared to easily glide over the skin of your client. Start by massaging the feet soles of your client, wrapping both hands around each foot and using your thumb to apply pressure and, after some time, move into the back of the legs, giving each leg a couple of long, relaxing strokes all the way from the calf to the upper thigh.

Then move your hands from the lower to the upper back, by placing the palm of each of your hand on either side of the spine and work your way up, keeping your hands parallel to one another and when you reach the top of the back, fan your hands outwards across the shoulders like outlining the top of a heart. By using a kneading motion, return to the lower back to work out on the large muscles on each side of the spine to rid of built-up tensions.

After massaging the lower and upper back, go now to the shoulders using a hand on each shoulder in a classic massage position, kneading the thumbs deep into the muscles of the shoulders and, after sometime, use the press and release technique to massage along the neck, all the way to the hairline. The second to the final step is to massage the arms, working on one at a time, and, finally, massaging the head using your fingertips to gently massage the temples, moving in slow circular motions.
