You don't have to be a professional massage therapist to give your partner a high-quality massage. However, giving a good massage is probably more challenging than you think. You can't just pull a bottle of moisturiser out of the bathroom closet and start slathering it on your partner; some skill and technique are involved.
Learn how to give a great massage, and your partner will be impressed, grateful and possibly a little more ;)
A great massage is something your partner won't forget, and it's a great way to spice the love life up!
Try these techniques:
1. Consider the location and the surface. Privacy can matter, depending on the type of massage. You might be able to massage your partner's neck at the park, but some massage options might be questionable to do in public! Then again, the kitchen floor might be private but less than appealing. The environment matters! A bed or couch can work just fine.
2. Choose your medium (i.e. oil) wisely. Many skin moisturisers are poor choices for massage purposes, and they don't glide well and absorb into the skin too quickly. Choose an oil that's intended for massage purposes. Finding the best one for you and your partner might take some experimentation. I recommend Grapeseed Oil, which I've used for years here at Male Massage Surrey.
3. Use the oil properly. Warm the massage oil before applying it to the body. You can pour it onto your hands and warm it by rubbing them together and heating the bottle in warm water.
4. Lighting, music, scent. Consider all the aspects of the location where you'll be giving the massage. There are many options for lighting, and you can use colour lighting, candles, or anything else that you think will work. Low lighting is often the best option.
5. Start with the bigger muscles. It's best, to begin with, the back and the thighs, and you can branch out to the shoulders, arms, neck, and lower legs.
6. Get the pressure right. A massage can be too hard or too soft. Communicate with your partner and get feedback. It won't take long before you know what your partner likes.
7. Avoid going too fast. It can take a little time to work a muscle thoroughly. If you move your hands too quickly or move to a new area too quickly, your partner can feel frustrated. Take your time. It's not a race
8. Avoid lingering too long. Spending too much time on one area is also possible, and the skin and the muscle can become irritated if you focus too long on one spot.
9. Learn more. There are many styles of massage and many massage techniques. Consider getting a book or taking a class. There's much to learn!
10. Take turns! You’ll learn more about giving a massage if you’re regularly on the receiving end of one. Besides, you deserve it!
