10 Tips For A Great Massage

April 03, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 147

Worries and more worries... we can't get rid of them, we worry even in our dreams. There is a simple, inexpensive way you can use to pamper your senses and get rid of the stress: massage. Moreover, massage can arouse passion for a couple if both the person who performs the massage and the one who receives it let themselves carried away by the moment. There is no need to know professional massage techniques, you just need patience and desire.

10 simple ways to perform a successful massage

1. Remove your jewelry, watch and trim your nails, your partner wouldn't like to be scratched.

2. Create a pleasant environment. Light scented candles use relaxing music and change the linen with a color that makes you feel good.

3. Use essential oil. Massage oils are great because they allow hands to glide more easily on the skin, but also because of their scents, which have relaxation properties and set off the mood. The essential oils recommended as effective in combating stress are lavender, eucalyptus, jasmine, etc..

4. Be prepared with towels.

A towel is placed under the receiver's neck;

Another one is placed under the knees when sitting on the back;

Another towel or a blanket is used to cover the parts that are not massaged.

5. Warm up your hands. Cold hands are not a pleasant experience. It is recommended to wash your hands with warm water before the massage and rub hands together to warm them.

6. Adopt a comfortable position. It is very important to find a good position to execute the movements correctly. Your hands have to "dance" on the partner's skin. In no case your hands should be rigid.

7. Get feedback while massaging. In order to achieve the desired effect, you need to know if the moves you make are appropriate and if your subject is comfortable. You can only find this out from the person massaged, so from time to time ask how they feel, where they want to be massaged and if there is anything that can be changed to improve their experience.

8. How to perform the massage movements? As simple as possible. Do not think too much about it. Rely solely on instinct. Make this intimate time, a moment of tenderness. First, glide your hands all over his or her body touching every inch of skin, then make gentle pressing movements with your fingers or the heel of your hand. You will feel the person massaged giving in under your hands and relaxing as you go on. Let yourself be ruled by feelings and intuition, and your hands will move and glide over the skin, naturally exactly the way they should.

9. Play with your hands. Use your hands, palms, fingertips, fingers, knuckles, elbows... each part of your hands and arms can play a role. The more imaginative you are the more pleasant surprise you will produce. Use fingertips and palms on the more sensitive areas, such as neck, and use the stronger parts such as elbow on the back.

10. Kneading, friction and tapotement, effleurage, etc... At the beginning of the massage is good to start with the basic Swedish techniques: friction, kneading and gliding tapotement, to stimulate blood circulation. The closing procedures are gliding and nerve-stroking which are calming and relaxing but wake up latent vital energies.

Tips & Tricks

Use aphrodisiac oils as they work wonders. Opt for quality massage oil. This is a very important element for your partner to feel great. If you want the result to be a night of love, then choose an essential oil with aphrodisiac properties. Some of these oils are rose, ylang-ylang, jasmine, orange and nutmeg.

Avoid varicose veins! Massaging varicose veins, you do more harm than good. Varicose veins cause pain, and the blood clots can be dislodged, can reach the heart, triggering serious problems.
