Massages to feel good
Does a good massage have to hurt?
It can! But it doesn't have to, it all depends on the wishes of the guest. Many guests want to feel something afterwards.
How can you recognise a good massage?
Whether it is strong or gentle, what is good is what feels good. Empathy during the massage is one of the most important factors. The guest should feel good.
Why are massages so good for the body?
Touch and skin contact are a human need. A massage can relax the muscles, relieve pain and release emotional blockages. This combination is pure bliss for body and soul.
What exactly happens during a massage?
Passive muscles can be stimulated by massage, tense ones loosened. Blood circulation is stimulated, which supports the metabolism in the muscle. In the relaxed tone of the muscles, a much better supply of nutrients can be made possible than in a tense muscle.
Is it possible to massage preventively to avoid pain?
Loosening muscles and fascia can prevent tension. However, exercise, a healthy diet and dealing with stress are just as important.
What effect do massages have on well-being?
Massages can be a very emotional experience. Many people feel accepted and taken care of. It is an enormous mental relaxation in which you can completely let go.
