1. To begin with, pour some oil on your palms and begin the massage on the back, from the shoulders to the lower back (to be able to spread the oil across) by holding the hands side by side with fingers together, and rubbing the back in a gentle circular motion.
2. Next, knead the affected muscles with the base of the palm. Push the base hard into the affected area in order to provide maximum relaxation. Be sure not to hurt the muscles. This technique is effective for stiff and sore muscles, especially in the back, legs, and buttocks. It thoroughly relaxes the muscles and eases the effect of stress on the body.
3. Lastly, on the stiffer areas, use both the thumbs or index fingers in a circular motion, for about 10 seconds, to release the tension. This process can be repeated a couple of times, till a feeling of relaxation is experienced in the body. Repeat step one to complete the massage to give an overall sense of calm.
