Sensual massage is romantic, intimate and special and relaxingÖ. there canít be a better way unwinding after a hectic and tiring week. A proper body massage involves a variety of touches with the application of pressure at certain points with continuous flowing movements. A massage can release all the tension and pain from the body and leave one completely relaxed. And when your partner gives this relaxing massage then it goes without saying that it makes a connection stronger than anything else. But not many of us know how to give a sensual massage. We most of the time leave it up to the professionals. But it is not a difficult task and with a bit of practice you can get it right. So letís take this quick guide to a sensual massage and relax the mind and body.
The Right Ambience
Getting the mood right takes care of many things. Before you start off give yourself some time as well as the ambience. One of the key elements is the lighting. Remember we are talking sex, sensuality and relaxation. So the fluorescent tube lights are definitely out. The dimmer the lights the better the ambience. Use many candles, scented and votive ones and place them strategically. You can also decorate the room with flowers. But remember to balance the scents. Too many strong smells can get overpowering. And finally a romantic set up is never complete without some soothing background music. Select some soft numbers and put them on repeat.
Selecting the Right Oils
Selecting the right scented oils is one of the key elements of a good sensual massage. There are certain oils like rose and jasmine known to have aphrodisiacal qualities
and are great for sensual body massages. One can also go for other kinds of oils if something you like. But donít use petroleum jelly or any other kind of lubricants as it is not easily absorbed by the body and makes massage difficult. But that doesnít mean you use hand lotions as these get absorbed almost immediately making massaging very difficult.
Make it Slow and Steady
A sensual massage is not about pounding on your partnerís muscle with a jump-start. Just like sports need a warm up, similarly in a massage as well gradual progress is required. Make an easy start and let your partner get familiar with your hand movements. Remember it is a sensual massage, so give some time for the sensuality to come out. The process of a body massage is all about invoking the right energy flow. But before you start off, make sure your partnerís back is straight. One more thing that is very important in any kind of massage is working directly on the spine. It is best to work along it. As you make progress and your partner starts feeling comfortable with your hand movements, gradually work your way towards the outer end, towards the waist. By this time you must have gained momentum and your partner totally comfortable under your touch. Now your strokes need to be firm, deep and continuous. Patience is very important in a sensual body massage. Maintain a kind of a rhythm as your strokes remain steady with continuous flow with one move leading to another. There shouldnít be any sudden jumps, keep it smooth. And hey you need to massage the muscles and not the skin.
Just The Right Strokes
Once the warm up massage has been done, it is now time to gradually build up pressure. Now your hand movements can work on large muscles using firm and even pressure at all times. Keep your focus on the neck, back, shoulders and legs. One of the key elements of a sensual massage is that there should be some connection point between the two of you. Involve yourself in the massage. You are not just on the delivery end, but feel the pleasure your partner is feeling. After all who knows his body better than you. Apply equal pressure along the neck and the complete spine, working outwards from up to down. To see him twist with pleasure move towards the arch of the back, where the body curves towards the buttock. Take him to new heights of pleasure as you touch the back of his thighs, calves and shoulder blades.
If your partner works all day long on the desk then pay extra attention to his upper arms, forearms and fingers. But you need to be extra careful while massaging delicate areas like the neck. Use your fingertips for simple strokes and concentrate more on the shoulder joints. It can be really relaxing. The main focus of a sensual massage is to release all stress and negative energy, so it is very important to identify different pressure points. If you apply pressure at the right pressure points there can be some pain and this is good as you release the pressure from the body. However the pain is unbearable then stop right away.
As you reach the end of your sensual massage, cooling down becomes as important as the warm up. You will once more need to slow down and slowly decrease the pressure of the strokes. Wipe the entire body down and remove any excess oil. By this time your partner should be totally relaxed and may have even dozed off. Your partner may not be up to something sexy but hey you did an excellent job. Congrats!!
