How To Give Full Body Swedish Massage
In this article you will learn how to give full body Swedish massage. While not sexual in nature, this type of massage is an enjoyable way for couples to spend quality time together and can be a nice component to a romantic evening together. By learning how to give full body Swedish massage, you can enhance the closeness you feel with your partner and practice your technique on each other.
- Prepare the room. The first thing you'll want to do is prepare the room for the massage. To do this, dim the lights (or turn them off completely) and light the room with candles. This is not necessarily to create a romantic atmosphere, but to create a relaxing one. You'll also want to cover a flat surface with towels. This can be either a massage table or the bed. Then, roll up one towel which will serve as a headrest.
- Begin the massage. During a full body Swedish massage, the recipient will need to be fully undressed. A towel can be used to cover the body if desired. Begin the massage by warming a bit of massage oil in your hands, and start rubbing the back, shoulders and neck area. Full body Swedish massage combines massage of the muscles, kneading of the muscles, and stretching of the muscles. Combine a bit of this into your repertoire.
- Proper technique. While giving a full body Swedish massage, keep in mind that the ultimate goal is complete relaxation. This means you should limit conversation to a minimum. Concentrate solely on the massage and work every inch of the body. After massaging the neck, back and shoulders, continue on to the legs and feet. Once the entire back has been massaged, continue to the front of the body. During a full body Swedish massage, the breasts are not incorporated in the rubbing. The only exception to this, of course, is if the massage is being performed on your partner.
- The final step. Once the full body Swedish massage is complete, warm a moist towel in the microwave for approximately 10 seconds. Place the towel over the eyes and allow the recipient enjoy a few moments of quiet relaxation.
