What happens during the Russian Body Massage?

Russian Body Massage, also known as Russian Sports Massage, is a therapeutic technique that involves deep tissue manipulation, stretching, and joint mobilization. The steps in a Russian Body Massage are as follows:
  • Consultation: The session typically begins with a brief consultation between the client and the massage therapist to discuss any specific concerns or areas of tension.

  • Preparation: The client is usually asked to undress to their comfort level and lie on a massage table. They are provided with a sheet or towel to cover themselves.

  • Oil or lotion: The therapist applies a moderate amount of massage oil or lotion to the client’s skin to reduce friction and allow smooth gliding of the hands and forearms.

  • Effleurage: The therapist starts with gentle, long, and sweeping strokes known as effleurage to warm up the muscles and relax the client.

  • Petrissage: This step involves kneading and squeezing the muscles with the fingers and palms to release tension and improve circulation.

  • Friction: The therapist uses friction techniques, such as deep circular movements with their thumbs or knuckles, to target specific areas of tension.

  • Stretching: Russian massage often incorporates passive stretching, where the therapist gently moves the client’s limbs to increase flexibility and alleviate tightness.

  • Tapotement: Rapid, rhythmic tapping or drumming motions are applied to stimulate the muscles and invigorate the body.

  • Compression: The therapist may use compression techniques, applying pressure with their palms or fists, to further release tension.

  • Relaxation: Towards the end of the massage, the therapist returns to gentler strokes and gradually eases the client into a state of deep relaxation.

  • Closure: The massage concludes with a few moments of stillness to allow the client to fully relax before getting up from the table.

Russian Body Massage aims to improve athletic performance, reduce muscle soreness, and enhance overall well-being by addressing muscle tension and improving flexibility and mobility.
