Wellness massage techniques with the Ceramic Wonder

Massage is a beneficial way to relax the body and enhance the functions of the body’s tissues.

Massages normally begin with five types of long, flowing strokes. Massage therapists apply massage oil on the back and other parts of the client’s body to facilitate the smoothness of the rub and then use gliding strokes on the parts of the body being worked.

This part of the massage is helpful in alleviating body pain and joint stiffness. It also benefits patients who have problems with poor circulation.

Three different techniques of deep tissue movements follow a gentle but effective warm-up.

Deep tissue massage movements are a more focused kind of massage targeting the deeper muscles located below the top muscles. Deep tissue massage uses slower strokes that move across the grain of the muscle.  This type of massage is often recommended for chronic tight and painful muscles, prolonged physical injury and for athletes who are involved in heavy physical activity.

Therapists can use a side of Ceramic Wonder for pressure points on each energy point for 2-8 seconds thus increasing the flow of energy and balancing the body. Therapists can also apply pressure on the back, legs, and feet of their clients. This pressure is firm, but relaxing.

The use of Aromatherapy is additionally helpful. Essential oils from scented plants such as geranium, peppermint, lavender, lime and others bring lusty smells to the air that elevate the mood and enable a relaxing, energizing and stress-reduced massage.

Gentle tapping throughout the entire body with Ceramic Wonder completes the massage by providing the final touches to a feeling of total well-being as the client finalizes their participation in a holistic health experience.

Anti-cellulite massage

Fat pockets on the skin may be ruptured by massage and result in a reduction of the pitted appearance of cellulite.  A study from Vanderbilt University in 2001 showed that deep mechanical massage can help improve the negative appearance of cellulite.  To massage for anti-cellulite purposes follow wellness and lymphatic drainage techniques.  It helps to boost the functions of the lymphatic system encouraging the removal and filtering of waste, toxins, and excess fluids from cells as well as boosting the body’s natural immunity. If lymph circulation is poor, lymph fluid can solidify itself and create thickened fibers that bind with the septa (fibers of collagen that run through fat cells).

Movements in anti-cellulite massage have to be harder and bulging upwards to create the dimple, orange-peel effect and be more repetitive on problem areas.
