The Egyptian massage is a massage based on relaxation. By performing strokes that are firmer than the base, this massage feels nice and firm. The thumbs and fists are also used to stimulate blood flow.
With the Egyptian massage, arms, hands and the head are also included in the massage, giving you a complete feeling of relaxation. The massage may be firm, but due to the gentle execution of the strokes it is experienced as relaxing.
In Egypt it is also called Egyptian Medical Massage. From our point of view, there is nothing "medical" about this. No heavy frictions are performed on problems solved.
