The touch is the key

To perform a proper Californian massage, you better respect some techniques. 

First, there is the touch that comes down to a series of gentle and slow gestures. In most cases, it is done with the palm of the hand.The specialist performs circular movements in order to imitate a superficial caress (which helps in relaxation). This action affects blood and lymphatic circulation. We can also consider it as a preliminary as it make the person being massaged feeling confortable.


Second, the masseur performs what is called kneading. This step is important in that it identifies areas of tension.It is intended to deeply massage the muscular parts.The masseur grasps, presses and kneads the fleshy regions of the body. This obviously strengthens the muscles and at the same time increases the elimination of toxins.

Third, there is friction. It makes it possible to release the nodes in the nerves thus reducing certain pains. It is performed on the fingertips with varying intensity depending on the goal.

The massager goes back and forth in a well defined part of the body allowing the tendons and joints to be more toned.

Finally, the specialist taps on areas of tension. This technique comes in two movements, "hatching "and "snapping". The principle is simple, the masseur performs a kind of continuous hammering at the targeted part. This then clear the sputum and eliminates fat deposits. At the end of the session , we leave the massaged alone  for a few minutes wrapped in a blanket to warm him up a bit.

Generally, the specialist uses a product based on essential oils (fragrant and relaxing) as a support. This facilitates the sculpting and sliding of the masseur's hands on the body.

It is usually performed on a comfortable massage table. However, it can also take place on the floor or on the tatami mat. There is also no problem if using the bed, provided the mattress is straight.

A massage session usually lasts between 45 minutes and an hour. From the gentle, enveloping and relaxing touch. The maneuvers are linked (kneading, friction, tapping) and increase in intensity. The action therefore starts from the epidermis with much deeper tensions in order to release the emotions.

Did you know ?

In the 1960s to 1970s, there was a new thinking emerging in medicine. It was about prioritizing "human potential". It was a method that brought together well-being, spirit, health and feelings. Many researchers gathered around the Esalen Institute in California to build the principles of this doctrine. Thus, various forms of bodily therapies were born. Californian massage is one of these techniques. It was created by Margaret Elke who was inspired by several types of massage (Swedish, Japanese and Native American).

The lady then moved to Europe in the late 1970s. She then contributed to the popularity of "touching the heart" in the old continent. His technique is now one of the most famous massage techniques in the world.
