There are numerous types of massage which can offer both the masseur and the recipient a host of benefits. While sports massages might be offered in the event of an injury, a massage to a particular area of the body could be used to break down fat cells and reduce cellulite. These are both examples of the many where one would see a therapist in a professional setting.
When the massage occurs between partners, however, it’s accepted that the benefits are less health-based and are more likely to have a positive influence on the relationship and the enjoyment the partners can give to each other.
The potential benefits of giving your boyfriend a sensual massage might include:
Massage is widely proven to reduce tension in muscles and throughout the organs, to reduce stress levels by promoting relaxation and helps to improve blood circulation throughout the body. Blood carries with it oxygen and can aid in healing and general wellness, meaning that any enjoyment of the massage is matched with a feeling of wellbeing.
Release of hormones
During massage, both partners might enjoy the release of certain hormones which can have a powerful effect on them, their moods and whatever activities follow the massage. Oxytocin, progesterone and testosterone are all released during massage and other sensual activities. Oxytocin, for example, is often referred to as the “love hormone” and might make a person feel closeness to the person with them at the time.
Sensual massage is often used as part of therapy when a couple haven’t been experiencing any physical connection. For example, if they’re having a time of turmoil within the relationship or have experienced change such as the birth of a baby, a massage may be suggested as a way for them to re-engage with each other, without a sexual agenda.
Trust and closeness
Massage is often used either as an activity between partners or as a part of foreplay because of the closeness and trust it promotes. In essence, humans are at their most trusting when they’re physically close, and during this male massage experience, the receiver has to rely on their partner to stimulate and care for them. If they can achieve this level of trust in the massage setting, it bodes well for other areas of the relationship.
In most cases, when people think of sensual massage, they see it as part of their foreplay; either on a regular basis or as a special treat. Not only can it expand the time that the couple spend with each other before getting to the “main event” but it can give them time to explore what their partner likes and finds pleasurable, allowing their physical relationship to improve.
Most people enjoy sensual massage because it allows them to achieve a prolonged and heightened orgasm. The closeness, the sensation and the fact that in many cases mutual touching is expected and well-received mean that in many cases both the masseur and the recipient will enjoy the massage and may both experience climax simply through the act of massage, prior to any actual sexual activity.
