With lush illustrations and amazingly detailed information, this attractive guide invites readers into the healthy, relaxing world of massage. It explains everything a would-be masseur needs to know: how to prepare for the session, create the right atmosphere, and select and blend oils, as well as excellent basic strokes to use time and time again and advanced techniques for a more in-depth massage. Full-size photographs present complete routines for both soothing and stimulating massages that cover every inch of the body, and there’s a quick guide at the end of each section that summarizes the instructions in smaller pictures. And along with every stroke are facts about what effect it will have, from releasing tension to squeezing toxins out of the muscles.
