More Than Pleasure: Benefits of Sensual Massage
If you’ve ever experienced a therapeutic massage, you probably know that massage produces significant positive results for the body, mind, and spirit. Various types of massage exist, all of which are beneficial in their own ways.
Sensual massage, though rarely discussed and often misunderstood, might be the most enjoyable modality there is.
In daily life, humans are action-oriented beings, in work, play, and relationships, we’re the creators of our experience, on the cause/effect continuum, we spend a lot of time on the “cause” end, creating results.
Receiving a sensual massage is an exceptionally enjoyable experience because it flips the recipient’s role from the active “cause” position to the passive “effect” position. In a sensual massage session, the only thing for the receiver to do is relax and receive the practitioner’s nurturing and pleasurable touch.
Time spent in a sensual massage session is sacred and restorative. Treating yourself to this thoroughly relaxing and satisfying experience doesn’t take much effort or planning, and it can be seamlessly integrated into the flow of your day. A lunchtime massage appointment is a great way to put a spring in your step and send you back to work happy. Ending your day with a sensual massage is the best way to unwind and ensure a pleasant evening and good night’s sleep.
Sensual massage is beneficial in many ways, including:
- Reducing the level of cortisol in the body, thereby reducing physical and mental stress.
- Relaxing and increasing blood flow to stiff muscles, which reduces soreness and improves functionality.
- Creating a sense of well-being that boosts your mood and improves your attitude, making subsequent interactions with your loved ones and the world in general more upbeat and positive.
