[Music Playing] In this massage video, I want to show you a simple relaxation massage that you can do on the bed. For those of you, who do not like to work on the floor and also do not have a massage table, this is your great alternative. This massage is great after a hard day of work and right before going to sleep. The massage technique that is used is compression which means alternating pressure and release. The compression forces fluid out of the tissue, relaxes the muscles, and the release brings the fluid back. It works similar to a sponge. It is beneficial for the venous and lymph flow, it helps to remove waste products in the muscle and activates the meridians. Start with the person lying on the back and perform compression from the foot up to the head. Try to get more and more outward rotation of the leg but never overdo it. Keep your hands soft, your arms straight and use your body weight. Be careful on bony areas. Then, bend the left leg and open the hip, use your hand and thigh for support. You can also do this technique by standing next to the bed and putting your thigh under the partner’s knee. Gradually increase the stretch of the inside of the thigh but never over stretch the area. To do this same technique on the other side, you can use a pillow or a rolled up towel. Make sure that the hip on the opposite side is not lifting up because that means that the stretch is too far and the body is not well supported anymore. Alternatively, you can also sit on the bed and use your thigh to support the partners’ leg. [Music Playing]
