A good massage feels like a love letter to your entire body. Whether you go for the occasional self-care splurge at a spa or seek relief for chronic pain, there are so many reasons to get one.
Professional rubdowns are awesome, if often pricey they're also the best option, if you need bodywork for a sports injury or medical issue. But giving a massage to the person you get intimate with brings its own rewards. Kneading each other's knots is a way to show selfless love and affection, according to Beider, in addition to fostering trust, improving communication, and expressing vulnerability.
Wonderful as that sounds, attempting to give one as a beginner can be intimidating. And anyone who's ever had their ificant other murmur a polite thank-you as they gently pulled away from your shoulder squeezes knows there definitely is a wrong way to do it.Self Lymphatic Massage - At Home
Here are a few pro tips on the best way to give a full-body massage to your partner that will target their back, neck, and wherever they love to be touched. Unless you've somehow procured a massage tableyou'll probably want to create a makeshift sanctuary to relax the mind and body. The moving-around factor eliminates a lot of furniture; nothing kills the mood like accidentally rolling off a chaise lounge.
Beider suggests your bed, aka the perfect place to be if your massage le to some great sex afterward. If you decide the floor is a better option, set up lots of cushions and pillows for a soft space. Make sure you're being kind to your partner's back as you get them positioned.
You don't have to use oil, but it's standard in most professional sessions because it helps hands glide over tight muscle groups with ease. Since you may be applying generously, it's best to use a neutral "carrier oil," if there's a non-overpowering essential oil scent you know you love, add a couple of drops into the mix.
A few simple touches will shift your bedroom into a spa-like zone. Eliminate electronic distractions such as computer screens and blinking LED lights, and turn those cell phone ringers off. Use a blanket, if need be," Beider says. Some people need a gentle touch all over; others think that a good back massage requires getting in there and pressing hard.
Questions can mean the difference between unsatisfying—or even painful—, and the type that turns someone to putty in your hands. The key, according to Beider, is to move slowly and ask your partner if they'd like more pressure on a certain area. Encourage them to let you know when you're doing something that feels great, too. Again, no one's receiving a Yelp review at the end of a partner session, so it's all about making it fun for all involved. As Beider puts it, "the goal should be deep relaxation, and to create a loving atmosphere with less stress and tension. That said, there's no harm in knowing a bit about massage fundamentals.
Once you've gained a basic familiarity, the object of your massage-affection can name exactly what you enjoy for next time—you can watch all three techniques in action below. Effleurage "These are long, slow, gliding strokes, where the goal is to spread oil across the surface of the skin as well as introduce your partner to your touch," Beider explains. Use a few minutes of effleurage on any area you plan to work as the first opening strokes, or the final strokes to close the session. Petrissage " Petrissage includes more deep, kneading strokes, where you lift the muscle and slowly squeeze it from hand to hand, wringing it out and feeling what's happening underneath the surface," says Beider.
Friction " When you find the areas with knots, strum your fingers or thumbs slowly across them moving in a back-and-forth motion," Beider instructs. This is the friction technique.
