Many people are not aware of the benefits of a Vibratory massage. The client is prepared the same as for a normal massage. It is desirable to warm the clients muscles before starting a G5 massage. I use typical massage techniques and a good quality oil from Neals Yard Remedies. Neals Yard oils have a more luxurious feel and I believe have better therapeutic value than some of the cheaper options on the market. The entire experience is improved with an aromatic smelling good quality oil. Once the muscles are warmed by a deep massage, then I commence with the G5 massage.
Most of my clients request leg and back massages which are brilliant for easing muscle tightness and pain normally due a build up of lactic acid. The size and build of a client generally dictates the most suitable applicator head. Deep movements are performed in a kneading, compression manner. I use my hand as a support to the movement with effleurage. Generally 2-3 different applicator heads are used during a G5 massage to increase intensity and stimulate circulation and lymph drainage. The sensation is actually very interesting, clients say they can feel both the gyratory and vibrational qualities which promotes healing, better circulation and of course muscle relaxation.
The G5 massage treatments have many beneficial qualities. The methods of application follows body contours, which is comfortable for the clients. Bony areas are avoided. The massage works with venus return to the heart and its effects are on the subcutaneous tissues of the body. This brings about an increase in circulation without chemical change or contractions. The muscular system is improved by the fresh interchange of blood through the tissues, but the vibrations do not excite the muscle fibres to bring about a contraction.
Tense fibres are relaxed and muscular pain is relieved. The G5 massage is excellent after any form of exercise. I have many clients who enjoy yoga, cycling, running and gym work, they all love the sensations and feeling achieved after a G5 massage. I also treat clients who spend a lot of time standing up during the day, I include the feet as well which is particularly relaxing.
There are so many benefits one being it is less personal and some clients in particular male, prefer this. Most treatments are bespoke to the clients needs, however, there remains a structure to the massage in order for the client to obtain the full benefit of a G5 massage.
