How to give your partner a sensual massage
What better way to strengthen the intimate bond between you and your partner than with a sensual massage? Skilfully massaging your partner creates a physical and emotional connection, while stimulating their blood flow, relaxing their muscles, relieving stress, and improving sleep!
You may be a bit nervous about giving your partner a massage for the first time…but don’t panic! In this article, the LOVE Team will give you all of our best tips to make your sensual massage session an unforgettable moment for two!

Choose the perfect spot

The first thing that you’ll want to do is set the mood! Choose the perfect spot: a bed, a table – wherever your partner will be the most relaxed! Don't forget to put clean, fresh sheets on the bed. Prepare everything that you’ll need to give the perfect massage: massage oil, candles, and essential oils (lavender, sandalwood, geranium, Roman camomile, marjoram, bergamot, ylang-ylang, sweet orange and rose). Create a comfortable atmosphere with soft lighting and relaxing music to put your partner totally at ease.

Start slow

Start by stroking your partner’s back gently. Using massage oil will make it easier for your hands to move over their skin. Concentrate on the most sensitive areas of their body (neck, shoulders and lower back). These movements will help your partner relax.

Keep performing slow, regular movements. Don't forget to ask them if they like what you’re doing.

Gradually increase the pressure and speed of your movements according to your partner's wishes. Communication is essential and will help you decide what to do next.

Using specific massage techniques

Once your partner is totally relaxed, you can move on to more precise massage techniques that allow you to give a deeper, more intense massage.

  • Kneading: Alternately apply pressure and then release the pressure to loosen the knots in your partner’s muscles. Use the palms of your hands to press on your partner's muscles in a circular motion.
  • Effleurage: Perform smooth, gliding movements on your partner to relax their muscles.Glide your hands over your partner's muscles with gentle pressure.
  • Tapotement: Perform light, fast, percussive movements to stimulate and awaken muscles. Gently tap your partner's muscles with the edge of your hand, a cupped hand, or the tips of your fingers, using moderate pressure.

Communication is key

Always communicate with your partner to find out how they’re feeling. This will help you plan your massage on the fly. By listening to your partner, you can find out what he or she prefers: slower or faster movements, certain techniques, etc. Your partner should feel comfortable telling you if they’d like to stop the session at any time.

Finish the massage with a little surprise

The end of your sensual massage can be the perfect opportunity to surprise your partner: you can finish by manually stimulating your partner's most sensitive erogenous zones. A little bit of oral sex can also be a nice way to end the session.
