Types of Massages: Advantages & Disadvantages

Advantages & Disadvantages With Common Types of Massages

Touching is a great way of communication. To touch and to be touched is the most ancient form of expression that can leave a lasting impression and this is the reason why the massage is just as ancient as the human itself. The mother gently massages a young baby to sleep and a loving husband sensually massages his spouse as a form of intimate foreplay prior to sexual activity.

It is no wonder that there is a massage for any and every situation. For stress relief, chronic back pain, premature ejaculation or postural problems there is something to help our everyday existence. Therefore, to survey every single type of massage would be a colossal task but it would suffice to compare and contrast four common types of massage techniques: –

  1. Thai massage
  2. Indian Head massage
  3. Deep Tissue massage
  4. Swedish massage

Thai Massage

According to legend, it was the personal physician of the Buddha who founded the Thai massage and his principles incorporated various medicinal traditions from the South Asian region. With a profound insight into reflexology and Ayurvedic teachings, a comprehensive system evolved that has a number of benefits:-

  • No oils, music or special lighting is required
  • The massage can be carried out without the removal of clothes

It is by far a non-conventional massage but is very useful to help with mobility problems such as arthritis, frozen shoulder or muscular soreness.

Is there a disadvantage? Not necessarily but that depends on perspective. For one, it is not suitable for a romantic evening! So, it is not to be used in courting the opposite sex as it would probably deter and not attract as there is a lot of pulling and stretching in this massage!

Indian Head massage

The Indian head massage is a very old system that utilises the manipulation of facial and neck pressure points so it is ideal for: –

  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Sinusitis
  • Insomnia
  • Muscular tension

It is renowned the world over for improving blood circulation, lymphatic flow, eliminating toxins and other waste products.

Although it is a very good massage, it must only be carried out by a fully trained therapist because it should be avoided in the case of facial or neck injuries, a history of thrombosis or embolism. It is also noted that there is slight dizziness as well as the urge to urinate following the completion of the massage.

These are not strictly disadvantages but should be borne in mind if considering such a marvellous type of therapy.

Deep tissue massage

If any massage is painful then that is poorly done but if a massage brings a dull pain to the surface then you’ve guessed it, it is the deep tissue massage.

Those who suffer from chronic back pain to reoccurring injuries definitely require this. Through slow and concentrated strokes, deeper layers of muscle tissue are realigned to bring about greater benefit such as flexibility and faster recovery from injury.

The masseuse can use fingers, thumbs, the forearms and even the elbows in order to reach deep into the muscle tissue and fascia (the connective tissue)

With bands of deep and painful tissue (called adhesion’s) that are located in the muscles, ligaments and tendons, the onset of poor blood circulation, inflammation and stiffness are part of the common symptoms that can have an impact on mobility and general health. It is the duty, therefore, of the therapist to use massage oil and direct deep pressure to break the adhesion’s, thereby releasing pain and discomfort and so restoring the structure to its default position.

The problem with this massage is that it can take several hours over several sessions for the technique to be done adequately. And because of the need for prolonged time, it is not exactly cheap!

Swedish massage

The most widespread, the most popular and the most renowned, this is the Swedish massage!

If relaxation is the aim then lying on a bed and being pampered by lovely warm oils is the most satisfying feeling. This will improve your blood circulation, oxygen flow and relax the mind. Studies have shown that it also helps to reduce the levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, so what could be possibly wrong with the world’s number 1 massage?

Well, it can take a good 2 hours so having the time and the money to experience it won’t be possible for everybody. Secondly, it is of a somewhat intimate procedure. To be semi-nude and have a stranger massage you in certain parts of the body is way out of many people’s comfort zones. Having said that, it is still an incredibly useful technique to those who need it. But if you are in the mood for trying out something a little more exciting but want to do it in your own home or hote take a look at our outcall massage service in London and the surrounding areas

5 Ways To Make a Tantric Massage Even Hotter

5 ways to make a tantric massage even hotter

Modern day society is so busy on a daily basis that we have little time to exhibit any form of intimacy, and so we’re often starved for touch. Tantric Massages are a quick and somewhat easy way to curb this hunger. Massages are a great way to improve blood circulation, relieve tension, relax the body and above all, arouse your lover. It’s also a way to share intimacy, because it’s so mutually beneficial. We know what you’re thinking – surely massages are only easy for licensed professional masseuses. Well luckily for you, arguably the most important component of an erotic massage – and what forms the basis of one – is the desire to please your lover.

So here are some quick and simple ways to use tantric massage to spice up your life. Get ready to perfect your technique!

The first thing to understand is that tantric massage is a somewhat unique kind of massage and possesses its own special benefits. What many find particularly appealing to me is how it focuses more on our personal feelings and spiritual well-being rather than our physical health and the need to reach orgasm in order to release tension – which is usually the case with most erotic and sensual massages.

Unfortunately, tantric massages are not very common and so aren’t readily available in most parlours due to the specialist skills and training that goes into it. The professional who provides such massage services must be a master of all of the principles of Tantra and meditation.

Create a relaxing environment

Tantric massages focus on awakening the body’s hidden mystic energy, and bring the body and spirit in complete harmony with the universe rather than physical well-being. It’s not a process to be rushed, so choose a moment where you have plenty of time. Set a relaxed mood by lighting candles or incense (or both!) and choosing a chilled playlist, preferably one that is connected to meditation and spiritual awareness. The Top 40 probably won’t cut it.

 Stimulate to excite

Now that you’ve set the mood, use light, sensual and slow movements to bring the body’s sensitivity to a different reality. Make the most of every part, even undressing, in order to build excitement. Be sure to restrict your massage movements to light pressure – think gentle touches and lingering fingertips, because it’s inspired from the way energy flows through the body.

 Only stimulate enough to pleasure, but not to orgasm

It’s important to know about the genitals and their sensitive points – the basics, at least. For the penis, try focussing on the testis, scrotum and perineum generate, as well as the tip and the shaft. For the vagina, it’s the clitoris. Unlike the typial erotic massage, tantric is not intended to bring your partner to orgasm, but rather, to use the energy from the erogenous zones to create sexual pleasure and a connection.

 Use lubrication

It’s not highly necessary, but a massage would not seem to be a massage without one, right? Plus, it adds to the relaxing aura, because a dry rub doesn’t sound very appealing. Choose soft essential oils such as almond oil, which will soften the movements and add to the whole experience.

 Be creative and take a risk

It’s important to allow yourself to enjoy the experience, because your partner will be able to sense it. If you’re clamming up, how will that help them relax? Dare to be creative, and allow yourself to be taken over by sexual energy and impulse. Don’t overthink it and just enjoy the connection.

Why should you try tantric massages? Well unsurprisingly, it increases your levels of intimacy and helps to create a stronger emotional and spiritual bridge between the two of you, because it builds on existing love and trust instead of sex. So make bedroom blunders a distant memory, and try a tantric massage – it’s really not that bad.
