When it comes to a massage clinic or spa, your best asset is your massage. Without an incredible massage sequence and techniques, it will be very difficult to have a thriving practice.

Section 6: Full Body Relaxation Sequence

Here is the whole Relaxation Massage sequence- You can watch this as you do your massage on your friends to train. Put on some massage music and trust your training. There is no voice over here because you now should know what you need to do. It's time to 'groove in' your techniques. As i have said before, practice , practice and practice! The timing of the massage here is 45 minutes. All you need to do to make it one hour is repeat some more of the strokes slightly and you will be at one hour.


Here is an excerpt from my Back Pain Course.( please take no notice of the fact that it says lecture 19)This is a great thing to do not only for yourself but excellent to recommend to your clients to do to ease their pains between massages..They will love you for it!


This is a great way to not only inform your clients how to help their upper back pain and tension between massages but its also a great way to keep yourself in good shape. They will love you for this!


Here is brief description in written form of the massage sequence to look at so that you can remember it if you need. (Thank you so much to Hannes Wissing)
