How To: Give a massage with the petrissage technique

Give a massage with the petrissage technique

Petrissage strokes are a special technique of massage. Petrissage is mostly kneading like you're kneading bread. Just like if you had a big loaf of bread and you're just kneading that bread, all that flour coming in. I'm using the bottom V, corner V of your palms, wherever your pinkie comes in to touch with your thumb, and that's basically what I'm using with my hands. Learn the art of giving petrissage massage in this health how-to video.
