If the techniques above aren’t cutting it, consider asking your partner for help. Often, another set of hands (that aren’t attached to your arms) can reach places and address the pain you can’t. Plus, couple’s massage techniques are great because you end up giving and receiving—at least, in theory!
For a good upper back massage, remember to keep your hands contoured to your partner’s body. Avoid stiffness in your hands. The best massage you can give your partner will be with hands that keep the fingertips and palms down, making complete contact with the other person’s skin. Keep the following in mind as well:
