What is a Relaxation Massage?
The clue to relaxation massage is in the title. A good relaxation massage relieves stress and tension in your muscles and will leave you feeling with a sense of wellbeing.
At Sensua your relaxation treatment achieves this because of the general benefits that massage can give.
These benefits include, improvement to your circulation, so your organs and skin get more oxygen; it moves fluid through the lymphatic system. A relaxation massage encourages the body to digest its food and get rid of its toxins and it will help you to sleep better.
You will be draped with a towel and have the option of leaving your underwear on or off depending on your comfort zone. There will be soft music playing in the background, and you will be bathed with a luscious organic coconut oil, the massage therapists hands will glide over your body effortlessly as you sink into a state of total bliss.
You can have a choice of a firm massage or a fluffy (not so hard) relaxation massage. Your massage will consist of scalp, neck and shoulders, your back and your bottom (optional). Then your legs back and front. Your stomach (optional) your chest (optional). Your arms and hands and if time permits a facial massage to top it off. This massage will leave you wonderfully rejuvinated.
What is an Sensua Relaxation Massage?
If you have never experienced an erotic massage before then an "Sensua Relaxation Massage" is the way to start.
The Sensua Relaxation Massage has a subtle taste of sensuality; you have the option of being totally naked or have your undies on, the masseur can still glide his hands right across your body in a continuous motion, without losing connection.
An Sensua relaxation massage relieves stress and tension in your muscles and will leave you feeling with an incredible sense of wellbeing.
It is a natural instinct to rub or cuddle someone to give them comfort; a relaxation massage takes that instinct and runs with it, or in our case it "meanders" with it.
Take off your shoes and just drift off…
it's your world…
There is soft music playing during your session which tends to be a kind of music that is almost impossible to describe. It's featureless yet calming. When coming to see me, you may not get the music you desire. If you have music that you prefer please let me know and I'll look it up on Spotify, the marvels of the internet!
Before any massage treatment avoid large meals. Drink plenty of water after your massage, this will help rehydrate and flush the toxins out of your body. I suggest you don’t drink too much prior to your massage, otherwise you could be interrupting your massage to go the bathroom often. It's also a good idea to give yourself plenty of time either side of the massage, so that you don't feel rushed.
Go to the toilet before your massage. You will not relax if you feel you need to pee in the middle and don't know whether or not to say so!
You should always tell your therapist in advance if you
- are, or think you might be, pregnant
- have any medical conditions or are receiving any treatment or medication
- have recently had an injury or operation
- are allergic to anything, particularly skin allergies
- have any broken skin or sores on your scalp as this may affect the kind of oil and treatment you receive
So relaxed you can hardly speak…
A relaxation massage is a whole-body treatment, you will be given towels or a robe to wrap yourself in. During the massage, you will lie on a cushioned massage or treatment table and depending on the type of relaxation massage you choose, the Sensua masseur will skillfully remove the towels in a way that does not shock your dignity. The important thing here is that you feel comfortable. If you're very self-conscious or want to keep some of your clothes on, do. It's your massage and you need to feel comfortable if you're going to feel more relaxed!
At Sensua we will work with whatever suits you. The room will be quiet, private and warm. Unlike other treatments, relaxation massage does not usually entail much discussion beforehand, except to discuss boundaries, and the options that you may or may not want like, bottom, chest etc. However, you should let your Sensua therapist know if you have any particular physical problems, or are receiving a medical treatment you think they should know about.
The benefits of one relaxation massage can last days, but you need to give it a chance to do that. Try not to plan any hectic activity immediately afterwards.
After the massage you just want to stay on the massage table or go home and lie-down or snooze afterwards. This is probably exactly what you will feel like doing - listen to your body! It can seem surreal and is probably pointless, for example, to go straight back to work if you are feeling so relaxed you can hardly speak!
Please be aware that your first massage needs to be an hour and half, by the time we sit and talk and then have your shower, and of course have your massage an hour and half just disappears quickly.
