What is four-hand massage?
In a four-hands massage, two therapists work on one client, often using synchronized moves. A four-hands massage can be like experiencing two full body massages at the same time.
It is even more relaxing than a conventional massage: When you get a regular massage, you can readily gauge the location of your therapist’s hands. However, the brain doesn’t find it so easy to keep track of four different hands moving over the body.
After a few minutes, your brain will stop trying to make sense of all this information. Instead, you’ll feel fully immersed in the experience. The movements therapists use in four hand massage are usually slow and rhythmic rather than brisk and energizing. This form of massage can be useful for people who find it hard to “let go” during treatment.
Four hands massage is just as long as a regular massage. You may have two therapists, but that doesn’t mean the treatment will take half the time. Treatments typically last 60 minutes, 90 minutes, or even a couple of hours.
