One of the massage techniques is to press. You can press and hold, press and circle, press away, press and glide, etc. You can press certain area on the receiver using your thumbs, fingers, fist, forearm, elbow, knee, heel, etc. When you press, remember to press against something.
This is easy when you are pressing downward against the massage table, chair, floor or ground. When the receiver is sitting and you are pressing the receiver’s “good spot” sideways, you need to create a wall to press against.
For example, when you knead the base of the skull or press the neck points, lightly hold the receiver’s forehead. This will stabilize the receiver’s head and create a “wall” to press against. The receiver can then totally relax the neck muscles without having to hold the head against the pressure.
