How would you adapt your facial massage for a male client?

When giving a Male a facial you should not use cotton wool to cleanse the face; instead use sponges to cleanse the skin. Wipe off in the direction that the beard grows, to avoid the hair being pulled. If the client has a beard or a moustache you must avoid applying any product to the area. Cleansing, steaming and exfoliating treatments are all very beneficial unless contra-indicated.

How can you flush marijuana from system?

Exercise alot, or do anything that burns fat, such as a sauna or go on a detox diet, you can usually find detox pills at vitamin, health, or medical stores. Water will not help, THC is stored in fat and there isn't a single drug you can take to immediately remove THC or any marijuana traces from your system. If your desperate, eat less. Alot less so as to force your body to consume the fat it's accumulated and exercise at the same time.

Nervous System

Is the condition dysfunction of nervous system contraindicated for massage?

Dysfunction of the nervous system does not contraindicate massage. My personal work involves working with the nervous system to release nerves and muscles. Active stimulation of the nerves, although painful, and with probable bruising, can improve nerve conductivity, increase mobilization, almost immediately restore range of motion, and is deeply appreciated by those who have grown familiar with the technique. I have seen rapid progress with those recovering from injury, suffering from MS, fibromyalgia, and loss of range of motion. If properly done it almost always alleviates pain within the hour.

Why do people have to be nude during a massage?

Not all types of massage require the recipient to remove their clothing.

For those types of massage which do require the removal of clothing, it is expected that client's arrive to their massage CLEAN and LEAVE ON A PAIR OF UNDERPANTS so that professional draping with a sheet can be performed during the massage.

For the type of massage most people are familiar with, Swedish massage, removal of the clothing allows the therapist to more easily feel tense muscles, see the skin and body for signs of distress, and most clients enjoy the sensation of oil or lotion being applied. Without clothing, the therapist can use long sweeping strokes with more pressure, work more easily on areas like beneath the shoulder blades, and have an easier time manipulating tissues.

In the US, there is no such thing as a nude massage. It is illegal in all 50 states. You must be covered with a sheet or towel and are never nude. You may, however, be completely disrobed and covered with a sheet or towel. That is how most people get their massages. And, we never call it nude, or naked!

If a masseuse gives a massage what is the word for the person receiving the massage?

A person receiving a massage is referred to as a client.

However, note that a masseuse is a very offensive term to massage therapists. Masseuses are not licensed.

The client can also be called as a customer. Furthermore, therapists should be the correct term for the person providing the massage to the client. Also, cheap spa days are offered to clients who want to avail the services of the therapists.

Do women like their breasts massaged?

Massaging of breast tissue, not including the areola and nipple, is considered beneficial for good health whether it is self-massage, or by a professional. If a massage therapist does that, the main modality is manual lymphatic drainage. The therapist needs to be specifically trained, usually in the Vodder system. The breasts are draped at all times and only the fatty glandular tissue is massaged, not the areolas and nipples.
From a veteran guy massage therapist to all the guys. JUST DON'T DO IT. I've been trained in the Vodder method and did a massage on a woman's breasts during my training, and then never offered it to my female clients. Listen guys, if you are like me, I had to use so much attention and focus to remain in a therapeutic mental mode that it was really exhausting. There is just too much symbolism and ritual about women's breast in the American culture that it is best to just not do breast massage if you are a male therapist. Let the women take care of that. I'm being direct and honest, if it sounds like a good idea to you to do it, then exam your motivation and look inside yourself to see if your intentions are purely therapeutic. That takes a lot of will power to maintain it if you can put yourself there, and the payoff in therapy and healing for all that energy is not worth it, in my opinion.
