Shiatzu Massage

Well, as you guys know my martial art includes massages for healing. I need to practice before my yellow belt test (failed the last one because I hadn't practiced enough, stupid shoulder)So I need to practice. I have already offered this to mom and Meg but I am putting this out there for everyone.

The massage I am working on right now is a back massage. There are three meridians of pressure points on each side of the spine and I massage each three times; I go three times with my finger tips on each meridian, three times with my palm, and three times with my forearm. Due to my unique circumstance I also know the more advanced knee and shoulder massages though I am not as good at those. Anyway, it is a very long massage but I do need the practice. So if anyone wants me to practice on them during thanksgiving just let me know.

Also I have been experimenting with certain herbs for relaxation in the atmosphere of massage but I won't bring those home with me.

Warning, this is a pressure point massage and may unblock emotional channels. Some reactions include hysterical laughing or a bit of crying, depending on your emotional blockage. The purpose is to help the muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and to clear emotional blockages. There are about 10 different hand movements I can do so consider yourselves warned. Anyway, if anyone is interested, let me know.

Oh, also a personal style that I have developed is to heat the muscles after the massage. It helps people to stay still and it is just really nice.
