Do you want to give your lover a massage like a professional? Massage therapist Lucinda Lidell's Book of Massage is a classic guide to the relaxing and healing skills of the hands. Featuring both Eastern and Western methods, this book on massage techniques is a step-by-step guide to traditional massage, shiatsu, and reflexology.
No matter which method you choose to focus on (you're advised to choose one at a time), Lidell presents detailed strokes and techniques necessary to give a relaxing, therapeutic massage. Detailed diagrams and photographs help to further demonstrate how to address each individual body part.
Divided into distinct chapters for each of the three methods, The Book of Massage also includes several sections that Lidell stresses are fundamental to all types of massage including creating the right environment (a warm room and soft lighting), applying massage oil, and finding a comfortable position. Additionally, the human touch and anatomy are reviewed towards the end of the book
