A sensual massage is a massage technique that targets erogenous zones to promote intimacy. However, since all types of massage require skin-to-skin contact, they can all be considered sensual. Any massage therapy can be used not only to relieve tension and pain, but also to deliver a sensual component. There are some specific types of massage, such as the Swedish, Tantric, Esalen, and Thai, that fall under the category of sensual massage. You can search the local classifieds under 'sensual massage in South Africa', or search for massage centres or mobile massage services in your area.
Tantric massage traces its roots to India. This technique focuses on stimulating the chakra centres of your body by stroking or applying pressure. If you are thinking of getting this type of massage therapy, be prepared because there is genital contact in a tantric massage session. Despite its unique component, its primary goal is more spiritual than sexual, as meditation is also incorporated during a therapy session.
Swedish massage is a sensual massage therapy which uses four basic strokes to improve your joint mobility, relax your muscles, enhance circulation, and stimulate your skin. Oil or lotion is an essential component of Swedish massage, especially when administering long relaxing strokes. To increase the sensual experience, it is often coupled with aromatherapy and soft music.
Esalen massage adapts the strokes used in a Swedish massage but tends to be longer and more nurturing. It is also much freer in form, and strokes may vary according to your feedback. If the primary goal of the Swedish massage is to relax the muscles, Esalen focuses on the sensual aspects of your body. In Esalen, both you and the therapist are fully naked to enhance the pleasure.
Thai and tantric massage are similar in the manipulation of energy flow within the body, but instead of strokes, Thai uses stretching to balance the power meridians. In Thai massage, you are allowed minimal clothing, and the massage is performed while you lie down on a futon or mat.
Although these massage therapies are meant to be used by partners to encourage intimacy, you can search local classifieds for therapists who specialise in sensual massage in South Africa. However, you have to ensure that you get a certified therapist or a massage centre because there are unscrupulous establishments that use massage services as a front for prostitution.
