North Atlantic Books, 2006 - 189 pagini
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.

Despre autor (2006)

Terri and Tammi Tremper live in Polson, Montana, where they own and operate Tandem Touch Therapeutic Massage. The twin sisters graduated from the Northwest School of Massage in Federal Way, Washington, and are nationally certified massage therapists and body-workers. In addition, they are educated in deep tissue, shiatsu, Swedish massage, injury treatment, craniosacral therapy, Reiki, and Jin Shin Do. The Trempers obtained additional certification in Ayurvedic Tandem Mirror Massage through Sacred Stone Center for Holistic Education in Rhode Island. They have since developed their own innovative approach to tandem massage that incorporates contemporary therapeutic massage techniques into the ancient practice of Mirror Massage.
