The first couple of moves we are going to learn is effleuraging moves. Now effleuraging moves got three purposes first is to spread the oil, second is to warm the muscles up, and third is to acquaint yourself with the person you are massaging have him or her review as the purpose. Now the first move is very straight forward. Then start at the bottom of the spine, move up the spine and then down the sides.
You do this in three sections until you get to the top and then you move around the shoulders and all the way back to the spine. At this state the pressure is very light.
See now the therapist is stopping that. She will be doing that before every new move she is teaching us. The second move is very much like the first one but almost in reverse. You start at the top, move around the shoulders, come to the spine and the push back up. Come back to spine once again and push back down. You will do this once again in three sections until you get to the bottom of the spine and move all the way to the top and do it another two or three times.
You can increase the pressure at this stage very slightly but the pressure is still very light.
Now the next the friction move and this stage you do not want to apply a lot of pressure mainly because you can burn the skin if you move to fast. It is a very quick move and up and down and you start going to one side of the body and move all the way to the other side. This movement gets the body and muscles warm very quickly.
