Well-Being: 7 Tips For A Perfect Massage
When Valentine’s Day is here, you want to put your massage skills to work… that you don’t have yet. Our tips and tricks!
It is a classic of romantic evenings: massage is an ideal practice to please your partner and share an intimate and sensual moment together. How can we make it exceptional? Here are our 7 tips!
- WARM YOUR HANDS
Do you hate it when the doctor examines you with his frozen stethoscope? The same goes for massages! It may sound silly, but icy hands can totally ruin a good massage. In addition, it is bad for your partner’s back, as his muscles will contract when he comes into contact with the cold
- DON’T EAT TOO MUCH
This is the flaw of romantic evenings: we tend to want to surpass ourselves by preparing a very hearty meal. As a result, it was impossible to enjoy the evening! You’re comatose on the couch cursing your stomach. For a romantic evening with massages, we prefer lighter and easier to digest meals. For the most gourmands, bet on the winning double by daring the chocolate massage says Moon Spa 88
- CREATE THE IDEAL ATMOSPHERE
We don’t ask you to change the whole decoration of your apartment’ (if you still want it, here are 10 decorative ideas for a Zen interior), but for a relaxing moment, bet on a playlist with quieter music (but not too much either… bird songs, that’s not the sexiest thing). Why not perfume the room with essential oils (in moderation so as not to poison your partner)? In addition, these oils have many benefits on the body!
- DIVERSIFY TECHNIQUES
When you are not familiar with it, you don’t really know how to massage your partner and you can quickly fall into a hyper monotonous massage. To please your darling, vary the techniques! Start gently by touching his back and then dare to use the techniques of kneading (short, pressed circular movements), tapping (a series of short, repetitive strokes) or pinching. For all these techniques, unless you’ve had training, take it easy, it would be a shame to hurt my darling.
- STAY TUNED TO YOUR PARTNER
In a couple, you have to communicate! One partner is not another: if your ex loved a certain massage technique, maybe your new partner will hate it. Stay tuned and do not hesitate to ask him/her for his/her preferences.
- VARY THE LOCATIONS
There are not only back massages in life! Why should this part of the body be the only one to enjoy a great moment of relaxation? Don’t forget the shoulders, arms or calves. From hands to feet to scalp: don’t just massage your partner’s back!
- END IN BEAUTY
Finish your massage the same way you started it: gently! Remember, once you are finished, to wipe your partner’s back. It would be a shame to end this moment of relaxation with a big spot of essential oil, very delicate to remove, on the sofa or on Jules’ clothes…
