We are going to outline how to do your own at-home massage so you can start seeing results within a week.

There are compelling reasons why you should try massage, not to mention the fact that we recommend it as one of our 15 ways to beat stress!

How to massage at home. 

Here are some of our tips on how you can massage at home.

1. DIY.

You may be surprised at how many areas you can massage yourself.

These include:

  • Feet.
  • Temple.
  • Shoulders.
  • Hands.
  • Neck.

By taking your time and using some lotion, you can go at your own pace and really work out any tension you may be experiencing.

2. 'You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours.'

Very few people will refuse to give a massage if they know they will get one in return. 

Why not ask a roommate, family member or partner to dedicate some time each week to a massage (did someone say Massage Monday?) 

It's a great way to reap all the benefits of a massage for free and also a fantastic way to perfect your massage skills. 

Don't forget that practice makes perfect!

3. Handheld massager.

Even the best masseuses in the world can't deliver absolute consistency.

handheld massager is a great investment to step up your massage game.

4. Massage chair. 

We love massage chairs because it means that you can multi-task while having a massage at home. 

Whether it's watching tv or working on the computer it is the most time-effective way to have a massage. 

Many people are anxious about the upfront costs of a massage chair. 

But once you work out how much it costs to see a masseuse, you realize that a massage chair quickly pays for itself - plus everyone in the house can make use of it! 

5. Body part focused massage machines. 

If a full massage chair isn't for you, there are also other options designed to target specific areas of your body. 

Leg massager's and back massagers are available if you just want to focus on these areas. Plus, these massagers take up less space than a chair.
