Technical steps for full body stress management massage – Chest
|Please remember – when working on a female client, we should not directly mobilize the gland tissue (not direct massage on breasts), but we should try to target the muscular structures around those areas.|
|1. Divide the chest into 4 lanes. With both hands perform effleurage starting on the lower part of the ribcage, and ending under the clavicles. Alternate effleuraging over the 2 middle lanes with effleurage over the 2 lateral lanes 3-5 times.
2. Perform friction in the same manner as step 1.
|3. While tightly surrounding the shin apply consecutive hand after hand motions. Repeat the movement 3 to 5 times.|
|4. Place the left hand on top of the flat right hand. Perform ironing Friction beginning with the lane closest to you for 3-5 strokes before moving to the next lane.|
|5. Stand with feet apart in front of the chest. In a “hand after hand manner”, comb the left intercostal side from lateral to medial.||6. In a “hand after hand manner”, comb the right intercostal side from lateral to medial.|
|7. Stand above the client’s head. Perform reverse Friction by pulling from the lateral sides of the lower ribcage to the middle; then straight up towards the client’s head. Place hands one the lateral sides of ribcage and pull straight up over the outside lanes of the chest. (3-5 alternating pairs).|
