We both like massages, but neither of us really knows what we're doing, or how we could be doing it better. I have some back problems, and both of us sit at a computer all day, so sore shoulders/back are common. The obvious answer is to try different things and see what feels good, I guess, but I'm interested in something a bit more concrete than that.
I checked google, but there are so many results I don't know where to start. I'm hoping there's someone here who does! So, what book/online source can you recommend to teach us a little more about this?
Sidenote: I've seen this post
. I'm not so interested in lymphatic massage, but something closer to deep tissue/relaxation massage.
