Relaxing Massage

Relaxing Massage Romantic Idea

A relaxing massage is one of the best ways to pamper your beloved as it melts away the stress and tension of a long day. Stay close and connect through touch.

Take your time to make it memorable and romantic. Turn down the lights, light some candles or burn some incense to set the mood. Remove any distractions and clutter. Silence all cell phones. Set the temperature of the room to a warm and comfortable level. Place a glass of cold water, favorite drink, or bowl of fruit nearby.

Use enough soft blankets on the floor or use a firm bed for your loved one to lie face down. Put some towels in the dryer for a few minutes to warm them up and cover your special someone. The towels will keep any massage oil from getting on the sheets or blankets.

Learn some simple steps to give an effective relaxing massage from the sources below. The motion of your hands and the amount of pressure is important. Use a quality massage oil on your hands to keep them flowing smoothly over the skin. Rub your hands together to warm them before beginning.

Start with the back, neck, and shoulders. A combination of long gliding motions, short circular strokes, and slowly kneading like dough are the basic moves. Focus on the muscles without pressing on the spine and bones.

Find out what methods are really pleasing by asking for feedback from your partner during the massage. Listen for verbal cues and changes in breathing.

Once you've started, always leave at least one hand on your partner until the end to keep your partner comforted without wondering if you have finished.

Don't worry about proper technique. This is all about relaxing you both.

Your sweetheart will welcome a romantic and relaxing massage of their hands, feet, back or entire body with every soothing stroke.
