There are basically 2 components of Tandem massage: the very first massage session is called Mirror massage and another is asynchronous massage.
Mirror massage: this form of massage therapy is very old and originated in India years back. To provide better satisfaction to the clients there are 2 therapists who work simultaneously with each other stroke by stroke.
Asynchronous massage: in this type of massage therapy, the two therapists work in complementary ways. The position of the therapists is not mirror. For instance, if one therapist is relaxing the points of the neck area the other therapist will work on relaxing the feet area.
