Nuru massages are so much more than an erotic massage...
When you hear the words “nuru massage,” what images come to mind? A relaxing spa day? An intimate afternoon with your partner? The confused question: “What is a nuru massage?”
Here’s a breakdown of what a nuru massage is, what benefits it can have and whether you should book yourself an appointment ASAP…or skip this massage trend altogether.
To put it simply, a nuru massage is an erotic massage that originated in Japan. The masseuse uses his or her entire body to massage the client, providing more bodily contact than found in a traditional massage. The word “nuru” stems from a Japanese word for “slippery.” Why? Both the client and the masseuse are covered in Nuru massage gel. The gel is colorless, odorless and actually made of natural Nori Seaweed!
Nuru massages can be done on a massage table, a bed or even an air mattress. The massages also seem to be rising in popularity. In fact, 40 percent of surveyed London-based men reported visiting a nuru massage therapist in the last six months. It’s important to recognize that nuru massages aren’t just for men, either. They’re suitable for people of both genders and all sexual orientations. While nuru massages might have started in Japan, they are also now offered all over the western world.
For some couples, a nuru massage can be just what they need to spice up their love lives. Being covered in gel and sliding against your partner can not only create new sensations, but also help you feel more comfortable in your own skin. You can discover more than just a physical connection, too. Nuru massages are intimate by nature and can, therefore, improve emotional connections. In fact, Japanese culture views the nuru massage as a spiritual journey.
Perhaps most intriguingly, though, nuru massages offer a variety of health benefits. One London-based nuru massage agency reported that 83 percent of those who tried a nuru massage experienced a significant boost in their well-being afterward. Nuru massages are also helpful for relaxing muscles and moisturizing skin (since nuru gel is one of the most moisturizing gels on the market). Depending on what body techniques your masseuse uses (and how experienced he or she is at massage), nuru massages could even help release toxins from the body.
So, should you jump on this latest trend and jump on a massage table? Well, it depends on what you’re looking for. If you want a traditional massage to work out some tired muscles, a nuru masseuse might not be the perfect match for you.
On the other hand, if you want to feel more intimate with your partner, explore the health benefits of nuru massages or boost your body confidence, maybe you should get your hands on some nuru gel.
