Prove a scientific version that head massage can prevent baldness until it was possible. However, you have a significant anti-stress effect and a placebo effect.

During the massage, “subcutaneous fat” is broken.
As a result of the conducted scientific researches it is possible to say with confidence that this is a great exaggeration. Yes, indeed, by means of massage the metabolism is accelerated, the secretion of fat is increased, the “combustion” of its excess occurs. But to get a specific effect, massage should necessarily be combined with physical activities and diets, and massage for weight loss should be conducted by long courses (at least 15 sessions).
The masseur must have great physical strength.
In this difficult matter, the sensitivity of the hands of the masseur is of the greatest importance, and not his enormous strength. In support of this statement in professional massage rooms, you can often see a fragile defenseless woman, not a strong, muscular man. One of the rules that will help determine the class of a massage specialist is sensations during it, the massage should be done very deeply and painfully.
Everyone can do the massage. Massage is easy to learn.
Yes, in our time there is a lot of literature, courses on teaching many types of massage, self-massage and everyone can learn this, but only a few can achieve professionalism. Only an experienced, with many years of practice, a specialist can make you a quality massage.

The founder of the Thai massage is the personal physician of the Buddha. To this day, Thai massage therapists have been trained in monasteries for 5-7 years, but first of all it is necessary to master yoga.

Honey and canned massages are a salvation from cellulite.
We can confidently say that canned and honey massages are perfectly treated for bronchitis, but not for cellulite. These kinds of massages are known for a long time. Since ancient times, they were conducted with the purpose of influencing the reflex zones (“collar zone”) for the treatment of pneumonia, bronchitis and tonsillitis. When the zone of action moves to the inner and outer surfaces of the thigh, a strong pain effect results, since these areas of the human body are very sensitive. As a result of the pain shock during the massage, the adrenal glands of the person emit adrenaline, as a result of which the biochemical processes in the body are accelerated, and there comes an insignificant temporary weight loss.
The use of anti-cellulite cream during massage significantly improves the effect.
In general, with anti-cellulite massage, it is better not to use anti-clyulite cream. Dry massage gives a much greater effect than massage with the use of cosmetics. The fact is that during the massage due to the drainage effect, the creams that were used before and during it are well displayed on the contrary. To obtain the desired result, all kinds of gels, creams and lotions should be applied after the massage.
A four-handed massage carries twice as much benefit.
The so-called tandem massage, or a four-hand massage, really gives a special feeling, is very useful and really saves your time almost twice. During such a massage, the patient becomes entangled in the actions of the hands of massage therapists and is given to inexpressible feelings. It can also be argued that it is incorrect to believe that a tandem massage necessarily carries an erotic character.

A blind massage therapist performs a massage better than the sight.
Blind masseur, due to the fact that he is deprived of the opportunity to look around, at the time of the procedure he concentrates his attention directly on the technique of hands, on the patient’s breathing, and is not at all distracted, but “listens” to the patient. As you know, the loss of sight sharpens other senses, and from here there is a difference between the blind and the sighted masseur. However, both can reach the highest level in their work at the expense of giftedness, talent and vast experience.
There is no absolutely painless massage.
In the massage, there are many methods of influencing the areas of the body, and if absolutely painless procedure is required, the movements of the masseur must be slow, smooth, and not cause pain. Such massage is used at a lower threshold of sensitivity, when any pain can cause a person to shock, with neurasthenic hypersthenic form, etc.
Breast massage can increase its size.
Beautiful, firm breasts are the dream of any woman. And, in principle, any woman can achieve by doing massage and hydromassage of the breast, if not increasing the size, then, at least, the elasticity and beauty of the breast.
