THE MASSAGE BOOK GEORGE DOWNING PDF

This book was written to explain masage technique and to explain its meaning and purpose. Originally published at a time when professionals were much less common than they are now, especially outside of metropolitan areas, it has served a very fine purpose, and for the most part the illustrations and text combine to teach effectively. He also insists on positing that readers will be using a massage table, which is almost certainly a small minority of users in the real world. Do they still write them like this? I think that the writers and readers list is in the same lets make knowledge accessible school. Love the irony that it talks about massage as health and not sexual alone then most of the illustrations are about being naked!

How aesthetic doctors are responding to Covid From virtual consultations so clients can continue their treatment to how they are helping the pandemic effort By Francesca White Not only does this brilliant massage do away with the spectacular discomfort of being 40 weeks pregnant, but it takes place on what can only be described as an enormous hot-water bottle in reality, a warm, cocooning mattress filled with water so it moulds to your bump.

Best massage for the open-minded Russian Dance-of-Leaves Banya Only somewhere as reassuringly smart as the South Kensington Club would you subject yourself to a banya, a Russian ritual of steaming in a dry, wooden sauna before being whipped not like that with dried branches of oak, birch and eucalyptus.

It helps to open the capillaries, you are told, as you lie there with your face pressed into a pillow of foliage like a medieval pig about to be roasted, and it gets the blood pumping through the veins.

The sight of several Russian men in tiny shorts and felt caps who thrash the air with leaves, press them into your skin and come at you with buckets of ice does much the same. An invigorating — and memorable — experience. And sometimes you just want a sodding massage. Just a very good, thorough full-body massage. Best two-for-one massage Pinda Paradise massage with Antonella A very clever massage, because what you actually get is a full-body exfoliation thrown in for free. The massage that follows is altogether defter, more precise and scratch-free: Antonella finds knots quickly like the ones at the base of your skull and does away with them, just like that — 50 minutes is delicious, though over far too quickly.

While Mozart lulls you into a meditative state, Beata will gently manipulate your shoulders and handstand-walk on your back OK, not really, but it does feel like it to release pent-up emotion, as well as the usual knots. To book, visit puremassage. This is an assessment, a quiz: an in-depth analysis of what ails you. But the next morning, that niggling hip pain will have eased and your neck will have regained its movement.

So you go back for more and find that what ailed you no longer does. Some pain - lots of gain. If the answer is yes, you might not think that a rub-down is the answer prosecco? Both at once? An hour at the hands of Philly will leave you transformed, body and mind.

After a career as a professional skier ended in a life-changing accident, she chose to devote herself to healing. In the past 14 years she has studied sports massage, shiatsu, craniosacral therapy, acupuncture, Chinese medicine and meditation. So much so that you barely bat an eyelid when she asks you to lie face down on a mattress on the floor.

What she practises - alongside reiki, acupuncture and breath work -is walking massage. Those points at the base of your skull? Climb into your mediocre bed and guess what? Best massage for weight-loss Body Reshaping Massage with Tania Probyy-Holova As you lie on the table, waiting in the vain hope that Tanya will go easy on you, she declares that her rigorous pummelling may bruise. So you close your eyes and imagine yourself in a bikini with your new and improved pins as Tanya sloshes juniper oil around and blitzes each leg from ankle to bottom, rhythmically kneading dimpled skin.

An hour later, you stand there in your pants praying that your thighs have shrunk. But you do need to get hold of Milk Beauty, a team of completely charming and brilliant beauticians who - laden with foldout beds, music, scent-diffuser oils and the like - will pitch up at your door, in full uniform, whenever, wherever. Their ability to make you switch off - even though the children are banging around downstairs, the cat is yowling through the door and the Ocado van is stuck at the gate - is mesmerising; their technique light or firm, deep-tissue or Swedish spot-on.

But this massage is pleasingly functional. What follows is 80 minutes of glorious, utterly intuitive massage: from your feet every single metatarsal is stretched to your scalp which is kneaded with pink mud. Her real skill lies in rebooting people after surgery: taking post-operative tissue and working it very gently to kickstart the healing process. She flutters the cushions of her fingers around your eyes to drain fluid and warms up limbs if she senses poor circulation - lifting the muscle up and away from the bone to get the blood flowing.

And great on a hangover. Best facial massage Signature Treatment with Alexandra Soveral It might seem a bit off-piste to start banging on about a facial, but hang on. There are approximately 42 muscles in your face, and guess what?

They need some love too - to stop them from letting the side down, so to speak. This is merely prep, though. The real magic happens when she gets to work with her hot rocks - kneading underneath cheekbones, turning your head this way and that - before pressing ice-cold quartz stones into temples, sinuses and brow bones to take down puffiness. Look in the mirror and you might just believe her. Deep sadness can lodge itself firmly in your back; bereavement can manifest itself in a tight chest and a frozen neck.

So come to see Liz, who has an uncanny intuition for where pain has got stuck, and will formulate a plan to get rid of it. But go home, heave yourself into a tub of Epsom salts, and the effects the next day will surprise you: knotted, fibrous muscles have become supple and elastic, shoulders drop back into their proper position, and you feel considerably lighter. Naturally self-warming tiger-clam shells nature never ceases to blow our tiny minds are used — think of it as a hot-stone massage — alongside organic oils, to reach the deepest aches and niggles while leaving your skin super-soft.

Owner Clare also works closely with a local hospice, offering treatments to patients with issues ranging from bereavement to cancer.
