What can I use for massage without oil?
Massage gels, creams, and lotions: Instead of oil, massage therapists often use specially-formulated professional massage gels, creams, and lotions.
How do I give the best massage?
The person you’re massaging should be lying face down on a supportive surface (firm mattress or a carpeted floor) with her arms down by her sides; have her turn her head to one side, switching halfway through. Placing a pillow or small, rolled towel under the shoulder she is facing can help ease neck tension.
How do I give my partner a massage?
Keep your back straight while massaging and use the weight of your body to put pressure, rather than just your hands. Before you start, place your hands on your partner’s back, and take several deep breaths together. Set an intention to be the giver, and honor the gift you are about to give your partner.

Can you massage with Moisturiser?
In general, it’s best to avoid scented oils and lotions, as some clients are extremely sensitive to smells, and the wrong scent could ruin their massage. If you want to use an essential oil or other scent, run your plan by the client prior to the session.
Can I use body lotion for massage?
Massage lotion has the shortest glide and is the most absorbent of the three, which makes it ideal for real deep tissue massage. Lotions will give you the ability to maintain the best grip and apply the most pressure to your client and allow you to penetrate more deeply into their muscles to release tension.

How do I give my man the best massage?

Why does it feel good to be massaged?
Massages feel good because they release “feel-good” endorphins into the body, similar to a runner’s high. They can also feel good because the brain releases oxytocin which is a natural chemical that reduces pain and can serve as an antidepressant.
What does it mean when a guy gives you a massage?
If he gives you a pat on the back, he’s being supportive, friendly, and maybe trying to get you used to his hands. The back rub is generally intimate, but some people just like to give massages… for whatever reason. He may feel the need to guide you through a crowd by putting his hand on your back.
What is a simple massage?
Stimulation of skin and muscle by rubbing, kneading, stroking, pummelling or hand-hammering with therapeutic intent.
