This massage technique is great if your partner has neck of shoulder pain. It is also great for guys. Men seem to carry a lot of tension in this area, especially men who lift anything. The part of the technique that you can't really see in the video is what my thumbs are doing. They are actually pincing the muscle tissue as I need it upward. The effect is to flatten the trapesius muscle.
You might consider this assortment of bath products, candles, and massage oil. It is a nice gift set that will perfectly compliment your newfound massage skills.
