3 simple massage tips April 15, 2009
- 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!

On the body…With the body April 10, 2009
Working ON the Body
When you work ON a person, you are coming at it with your own agenda. In a very real way it is assuming that you know what their body needs better than they do. It is attempting to inflict healing upon somebody. It is an attempt to make healing an event rather than a process. It is attempting to control the outcome in a prescribed way. It is neglectful of where the client is in their healing process. In short, it is just wrong.
Working WITH the Body
Fortunately, there is a better way. When you work WITH the body, you are a partner, a facilitator, a coach, an encourager. You become a part of the process. You assist and help rather than trying to hijack the process. It allows for adaptation and accommodation to what they want, what they need, and what they are prepared to receive. It allows for the reception of the subtle information that the client is giving you through their body. It is humble. It is harmonious.
There is an old saying that when the student is ready, the teacher appears. The teacher was really there all along, but the student wasn’t ready to learn anything. Healing is much the same way – when the one who is hurt is ready, healing will happen. You can’t force someone into the process, they must be ready and willing to accept it. Of course, you encourage them to push their limits, but that is what spurs positive change.
The point is that when you work WITH the body, you are working from a place of respect, not one of assumed superiority. Working WITH the body, you build trust with your client and they can begin to allow the healing process to begin in your presence and with your help. Working ON the body shuts down this process and can even reinforce defensive patterns that make the client feel even worse.
Ass Massage April 9, 2009
It certainly looks nice with those curves…but does it feels good? I doubt so…massage is about pressure contact with the body…the masseuse is not doing that at all..just simply touch and go…fortunately its a lady massaging…if not…
Guy-Guy massage…NO April 8, 2009
Guy-guy massage? No no…look at this video clip and that explains how natural it is for a masseuse to be a female rather than a male…even when a female massage a female…its sexy…but how about the opposite whereby the guy massage his own gender? Gross.
No Australians sighted…although this place is named Solid Gold Coast. It was a tough day at work rushing out proposals and indeed relaxing just to drop by a massage place after all those tiring rush.
The outlet comprise of steam & sauna, jacuzzi, large screen TV lounge and also a coffee place. No worries about carpark as there’s ample space, moreover, if you come after 5pm, its free parking. Their business hours are till 11pm and open from Mon-Sat. In this line of business, I came to understand that many of these outlets are seeking masseuses regularly given the high turnover rate. And chanced upon knowing that this outlet is also looking for more masseuses.
As greeted upfront at the reception, I was shown to my room but prior to that, I took a quick sauna session. In the private room of mine, my masseuse appeared soon after. The massage session was a comfortable one as she rubbed my body of work pressures away and soothe the fatigue away. Going in circular motions, she used the back of her palms to massage my shoulders with adequate force. This is a simple but yet effective technique coupled with those gentle hands of my masseuse.
The session ended on the dot and I proceeded forward with some light snacks and drinks at the coffee lounge. The whole ambience was light hearted and pretty much relaxing.
