I have been a massage therapist for 20 years and never cease to be amazed at the benefits and healing that it brings to my patients. These days I work only with people who have pain and I find that massage, performed appropriately, significantly reduces or even stops muscle and nerve pain.
Massage was once routinely prescribed in hospitals to aid healing and we nearly all do it to each other without thinking. We stroke babies, friends, children, lovers and even our pets. We even stroke ourselves, with skin creams, soothing all those millions of little nerve endings which crave attention.
'Romantic Massage' is a book of massage for lovers of all ages. It is a comprehensive guide to massage techniques and routines, which can be used by everyone, not just lovers. It features clear photographs and instructions for many different types of massage. Not only is massage really soothing, it is fun, rewarding, beneficial, and bonding.
What about massage equipment? All you really need is some natural oils and somewhere to practise. Use cushions and a soft towel in front of the fire, a comfy bed or sofa or, if you really get want to learn massage, get a massage couch, preferably with a head hole. They fold up neatly and tuck away in a cupboard between treatments. They are well worth the initial outlay.
Massage can be used for many different purposes, according to the strokes you use and the speed and pressure you apply.
Sensual massage or a relaxation massage is a wonderful way to strengthen your relationship. Invigorating massage can tone the muscles and be fun too. The book shows massage techniques and massage tips for all types of home massage treatments.
There are many advantages to a home massage. It can be performed any time to suit you and your partner, it can be planned or spontaneous, it can improve your relationship, it can improve your skin and muscle tone and perhaps best of all, apart from initial outlay, it is free, so treat yourself to the book 'Romantic Massage' and give it a try.
