Sensual Massage: The Health Risks
It’s liberating and sensual when you get a sensual massage as it releases all your tensions and stress. A naked massage is the ultimate in relaxation and freedom and it just can’t be beat. You experience pure bliss as the music plays and the candlelight glows. You’ll enjoy peace of mind as your experienced masseuse uses her massage skills to pamper you with her oiled and nude body. Despite the fact that a sensual massage is very liberating there are some risks you need to be aware of with sensual massage.
In a relationship, you can build up intimacy with sensual massage. When it’s done correctly, it can enhance sexual arousal, but it also provides you the same benefits as regular massage such as stress relief, muscle relaxation, and more blood flow. Sensual massage is done between consensual couples and it’s not performed by massage therapists. A professional massage therapist practices techniques that are therapeutic, not sensual. Here are some health risks you need to know before you perform any sensual massage.
Risk of using Massage Oils
Using a massage oil during a sensual massage may cause problems. Your partner may be sensitive to them and the oil may cause irritation or an allergic reaction. This may be the case if the oil reaches the sensitive areas of the genital regions.
Diseases That Are Contagious
One health risk of sensual massage that you need to be aware of is the risk of contagious diseases. If your partner has skin conditions like scabies, ringworm, fungal infections, or hand-foot-mouth disease, these can be spread from partner to partner. If the sensual massage progresses to anal, vaginal or oral sex then other contagious diseases may be introduced such as HPV, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis and other STDs or sexual transmitted diseases.
When you perform a sensual massage you need to avoid areas of the skin where there’s varicose veins. These budging veins are large and they occur when there’s a malfunction of the valves that are inside the vein. If you apply direct massage to these areas, further damage may be done to the vein. This can also cause pain to the person you’re giving the massage to.
Clotting of Blood
If you have a partner that has a history with blood clots, or is receiving treatment for blood clot issues, you should avoid sensual massage. If you massage a person that has a blood clot, this can dislodge the blood clot. When a clot id dislodged it may travel to the smaller blood vessels in the brain or heart and cause a stroke or heart attack.
If you give a sensual massage to someone that has some sort of inflammatory condition like bursitis, arthritis or another condition where there’s localized swelling, that condition may worsen during a sensual massage. The Massage Therapy Foundation indicates that therapeutic and not sensual massage should be done to affected areas to model the scar tissue. This should only be done by a therapist that’s certified.
