Massages are very relaxing. They are great for couples to get into because they build intimacy and romance. If you have never given your partner a massage or if they have never given you one, here are some reasons that you should be doing so:
1. You can build trust when you are massaging your partner. They are trusting you not to hurt them and to help them to relax. They are showing trust by letting you touch them. There is a certain point during a massage where you will notice that they are completely relaxed and open to you. This is the point where they are putting all of their trust in you.
2. You get to take a break from reality. While you are giving someone a massage your hands are busy and they are lying down relaxed. There is no conversation about work, children, or chores. There are no phones, no computers, no technology at all to distract you. It is just you and your partner escaping from reality for just a little while to enjoy some alone time. Taking these little breaks from everyday life can lead to less stress in your life.
3. This can be one of the most romantic things that you do in your relationship. You can set everything up to get the relaxing mood set such as candles, soft music, and aromatherapy candles or incense. You can use oils during the massage and move nice and slowly to show that you are taking the time to really help your partner because you care about them. There are many different ways that you can set up a romantic massage. You can have your partner lie down on their stomach, they can sit on the edge of the bed, or they can sit on a backwards chair with you sitting behind them. All of these invite closeness and warmth.
4. Let’s face it, a good massage can lead to a lot more when you are with your partner. This is because you are creating intimacy with a light touch. You are spending time alone with them in a romantic setting where there is skin to skin contact. This can lead to some wonderfully intimate nights.
