How to massage using petrissage technique

This week I’m going to show you how to massage using petrissage technique. Petrissage is a kneading technique. You use your thumb and four fingers to glide, pick up and squeeze the muscle. Use a product to lubricate the skin since this technique involves some gliding. I’m showing you the alternating side to side petrissage. Use the entire palm to cover more area. You can also target small area using just fingers like I’m doing here on the Achilles. You can do short strokes or long strokes if the target area is big enough like legs, arms, and back. If feels deeper if you do it slower. It also feels more sincere when you do it slower on your partner rather than rushing it. Use your body weight to help with the pressure and save your hands.

Happy Massaging!
