4 Hands Are Better Than 2: A Guide for Original Tandem Massage
Elite spas and resorts offer tandem massage as the ultimate indulgence, yet little has been written to educate therapists about this exciting modality. This practical guide, written by two sisters who have pioneered the technique, fills that gap. Part one presents 14 steps to creating successful two-person massage routines, ranging from effectively treating pain and dysfunction, to healing mind, body, and spirit, to building a thriving business and a loyal customer base. Part two offers a step-by-step integrative (ayurvedic mirror, deep tissue, Swedish, Shiatsu, and Reiki) one-hour tandem routine, a 10-15 minute seated tandem routine, and a tandem subroutine for piriformis syndrome. Each step, described in detail and photographed for easy application, contains solid therapeutic techniques to target specific muscle groups. These routines show therapists how to address both specific and general client needs, as well as how to maintain cohesiveness while working in tandem to keep clients balanced and relaxed.
