A massage is one of life’s few universal pleasures. You almost have to go out of your way to find someone that doesn’t enjoy them and for many they are the little bursts of freedom and relaxation that make the week all worthwhile. What many people don’t realise is that massage is an art in itself. It’s not just a case of applying pressure, it’s how you apply it, where to and with what. Hiring a real professional is a great way to get an insight into just how wonderful different styles can be but no everyone can afford to hire a masseuse or a massage escort every week. That’s why so many choose to learn how to employ the arts themselves, but even then it can be rather intimidating to open a manual and see the plethora of different styles and techniques available. So what can you do if find yourself in this situation, wanting to get the know how but having no idea where to start?
You could do worse than looking at Swedish massage. Chances are, if you’ve ever had an amateur rub down, they’ve been drawing heavily from the Swedish strokes. They focus mainly on soft gliding strokes, combined with longer more heavy and lingering touches, and circular motions of varying intensities. It’s easy to learn, hard to muck up and requires little preparation. All you need to give someone a Swedish massage is your hands and 10 to 15 minutes.
However, because it’s so simple, many people have already experienced the Swedish style and may find it a little boring. It’s definitely the default fallback for many, and even those with no clue how to do it will normally try and imitate the Swedish method given its prevalence on television. Those looking for something a little bit less ordinary should consider hot stone massage. It relies on the same techniques but uses gently heated objects, not always stones, to relieve the tension in joints and various points generally associated with acupuncture. The relief it can bring surpasses what is normally achievable with hands alone but it comes at the cost of convenience. The time needed to heat the objects and the fact that this style is based entirely around them, means that you will need to prepare beforehand. This isn’t really a massage that can be given spontaneously, but makes a great finale to a day of pampering for a loved one.
Most of us tend to use our hands extensively during massage but the Japanese art of Shiatsu places a heavy emphasis on the fingertips. This can vary from the lightest brushes to firm manipulation of the pressure points but one thing always remains the same: only the fingers can be used. It’s a rather unique way of doing things, but it can have spectacular results. It’s a lot easier to keep things varied than with Swedish or stone and the pressure that fingers can apply really do work deep into the muscles to unlock all that stress. It’s not easy though, and you might need to get an expert in. Hiring a massage escort to teach you their subtle arts is one of the best investments a man can make, and if you get them to demonstrate their techniques at the same time, you’ll find yourself totally at peace as well as full of new knowledge.
