Effleurage! - It's one of my favourite words! - "A form of massage involving circular, stroking movements made with the palm of the hand."
Effleurage is the movement we use at the start and end of each massage and even in between!
It's gentle, relaxing & soothing. We use Effleurage when we apply the oil to th3 body and it helps us warm up skin and muscle tissue prior to incorporating deeper movements.
