Honey has long been known for its medicinal properties. It is used to treat colds and to boost immunity. On its basis, various cosmetic and medical products are produced: masks, creams, ointments, etc. But you can also do massage with honey. This procedure helps to cleanse the body of toxins, toxins, and impurities. And also harmful microorganisms and viruses are destroyed. Honey massage can be done even when other types are contraindicated.
It is necessary
Honey - about 3 tablespoons
For honey massage, you need to use only natural honey, best of all liquid. The thickened honey can be melted in a water bath, and then used as directed. This massage can be done both for the whole body and for its individual areas. But most often the back, hips, buttocks are subjected to this procedure. If some individual parts of the body are being massaged, then a general massage should be done before that. This is necessary so that blood during the session does not flow to certain areas more than to others.
Three tablespoons of honey are enough to massage the back, thighs and buttocks. First, the product is spread in an even layer over the entire massaged surface. Then the body is warmed up. For this, you can use classic massage techniques. You can massage the back or other parts of the body with the base or edge of the palm, with the pads of the fingers.
When the massaged surface is warmed up and honey begins to stick to the hands, the nature of the movements changes. The palms are pressed to the body and then torn away from it. At first, the movements should be soft and not abrupt. You can massage with both hands at once, or alternate hands. Gradually, the movements become more intense. This changes the consistency of honey, as it mixes with sebum. In the process of such a massage, slags and impurities are removed from the body. They remain on the massaged surface and on the hands of the masseur. At the end of the session, they are removed with a napkin or towel.
The massage stops when the patient begins to experience unpleasant, uncomfortable sensations. If the massage is done for the first time, then pain may occur. But with each session they will get smaller. If a person can do it not with the entire surface of the palm, but only with the pads of the fingers.
After completing the massage, the patient should take a warm shower to wash off the sticky mass from the body. After that, you can apply a moisturizer to your body.
