Abdomen Massage:

The abdomen is the softest, least-protected area of the body and is, therefore, an area of great vulnerability for many people.Always work very gently and rhythmically in this area, only increasing the pressure once the recieve feels secure and relaxed.

Massage Steps:
1.Oil in large circles working around the navel in a clockwise direction, using both hands.
2. Continue circling the abdomen and begin to work a little more firmly using the fingertips to make small circles.
3. Place one hand either side of the body, on each hip, and wring up the body in a forward and backward motion.Then stroke up over the ribcage, over the breastbone and off at the shoulders.

Massage Tip:

Some people may not like you to touch their abdomen.When you reach this point in the sequence, you might like to first check with your partner that they fel comfortable with you massaging the stomach area.
