4 Popular Massage Techniques
Published on: 17 February, 2017 | Tags: massage techniques
Massages have been around for hundreds of years and are used for two main reasons, relaxation and for people with sore bodies. There are many techniques that are used to massage muscles to enhance their function, help them to heal and to relax people who’re finding themselves getting too tense and stressed.
Some of the most popular massage techniques include:
This technique involves soothing your muscles by using tapping and kneading strokes all over the body. This type of massage relieves muscle tension and loosens sore joints. To do this, there are five basic strokes that are used which are very easy to learn. These include effleurage, petrissage, friction, tapotement and vibration.
Effleurage is stroking of the skin, petrissage is where your muscles are lightly grabbed and rubbed, friction is where the fingertips and thumbs of both hands create deep circles over muscles, tapotement is where you create chopping and tapping strokes across the skin and vibration is where your fingertips are pressed firmly into muscles and shaken rapidly for a few seconds.
This type of massage is used on people who struggle with their posture. Having poor posture can be the cause of many health problems, including having backache, headaches and very painful joints. Rolfing will help to relieve this pain and fix bad posture.
To do this the myofascial, connective tissues which surround the muscles, are worked to help realign and straighten your body to improve bad posture. Therapist’s use their hands and elbows to work the muscles. This has proven to be very effective and a great massage technique.
This is a type of deep tissue massage that is used when individual muscles need special attention. This type of massage increases the blood flow through your body, reduces any pain with the muscles and releases any pressure which has built up on the nerves from injuries.
There are many people who get very stressed and tense. This massage is great for releasing knots of tense muscle and relieve pain built up in certain muscles.
This type of massage is very erotic and is used for relaxation. Oil is used to soften the skin and make it easier for the masseuse to massage the muscles within your body.
The masseuse uses both her hands and body to relax your body and give you the massage of a lifetime. After the Body2Body massage you will feel stress-free and extremely relaxed. This massage is perfect for people looking to relax and fully enjoy a new experience.

Many thanks for sending Camilla yesterday. She was absolutely superb. What a fantastic body and her hands are absolutely amazing. Many thanks.
Wow! What a little bombshell Sasha is. She is intelligent, witty, although smaller in size than I usually like, she has a great body and her massage skills are excellent. Her personality style (Yellow/Presenter) fits with mine as I am similarly Yellow/Presenter. I will definitely book Sasha again
Vanda was awesome, thanks very much. I will definitely book her again.
Words can't describe how great our experience was. Scott and Vanda were amazing and really great people!!!!!! Thank you!!
Thank you, Marisa was amazing. Great massage.
Many thanks for arranging everything, Lola was brilliant and looking forward to re-booking.
Just to say thank you for your assistance and please pass on our thanks and best wishes to Camilla and Lola, who were really wonderful. We look forward to maybe seeing them again at some point in the future!
A beautiful, tender, memorable time with a lovely lady, her smile, her touch, her technique, her body. An old guy is happy to have been stress relieved. Kisses to Lola.
We booked a massage with Pearl - it was our first time as a couple, and we wanted a masseuse to massage my wife while I was in the room. The staff were very helpful on the phone and had all our details to hand when we called up to finalise the booking. They recommended Ella as as masseuse. She was fantastic! We had the most amazing experience. Ella was gorgeous, sensual, natural and great company. She put us at ease straight away and gave us a weekend we will never forget. We cannot praise Pearl highly enough for the professionalism and quality of the the service provided. Thank you!!
Sonia was stunning, exactly what I hoped for and the massage was mind-blowing. A truly spectacular experience, and one that we hope to repeat. Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!!!!
Ella was amazing, I will definitely see her again!!
Mia is not only gorgeous but she also has fantastic hands.. you just want more.. Thank you!!
I had a very pleasant experience with Scott. He was very professional, has a lovely spirit and made me feel relaxed and at ease quickly.
I would like to thank you very very much for your kindness lovely masseuse Camilla. Really I like her and I'm so happy to see her every time I am in London. She is so pretty human lovely girl.
Thank you for breathing new life into our marriage. We've now had two couple massages from PEARL. The first with Suzy and Rebecca was a step into the unknown but they really put us at ease before giving us both a fantastic massage. The next time, Alice and Kate taught us how to massage each other and our love life is now on a different level.

The sultry arabesque Leila and the blonde athletic Claudia are the answer to any man’s dreams, especially mine.
Possibly the best massage I’ve had. Incredibly sexual without over-stepping the mark and asked me about rhythm and pressure throughout the massage. Sofia is my new favourite Pearl Girl!
Mia is the 10th PEARL lady I've tried in the last 2 months. All have been great, but Mia's long legs, perfectly formed breasts puts her in 1st place right now. Looking forward to trying the other girls but I can't see how they will beat Mia.
My view on Aura is that she is a strong spiritual person. She has her own massage style. Slow, confident, firm hands, properly tantric. She invests a lot of personal energy in the massage. And it all ends very well. You have someone quite special there. Oh, and she is absolutely gorgeous. Thank you.
Hi there, just wanted to give a very positive feedback on Rebecca. She really made an effort to give a real good massage and it worked, leading to an amazing experience.
