The skin is the largest sensory organ in the body. This is why a massage can be a very personal way to show affection for your partner. Are you looking for a special gift for that special someone this Valentine’s Day? You don’t have to be a professional masseuse to plan a romantic massage night for your significant other. Here is a step-by-step guide to planning a romantic massage night for two.
Planning a Massage Night for Two: What you will need
You will need some type of lotion or massage oils. If you want to use scented oils, consider the fragrances she prefers before buying any. You may also consider lighting some candles and setting the mood with music. If you are going with the Valentine’s Day theme, you might purchase some red, pink, and white candles for this night. Music may be anything that you consider soothing and relaxing to help set the mood.
Other supplies you may need are: towels, a massage table (or a comfortable, padded area), and any other props you choose.
Planning a Massage Night for Two – Step 1: Make preparations ahead of time
You will need to ensure that everything goes according to plan on Valentine’s Day. Begin by finding a baby-sitter for the kids or a pet-sitter for the animals – arrange for no one else to be in the house. And the night of the massage, make sure phones are unplugged so there can be no distractions whatsoever.
Planning a Massage Night for Two – Step 2: Setting everything up
Find a quiet, comfortable area for your Valentine’s Day massage. Make sure the temperature is comfortable – not too hot and not too cold. You will then need to set up a massage table.
If you don’t have access to one, a sturdy tabletop padded with blankets or a padded area on the floor will work. Cover the area with a sheet that is okay for getting oil on. Finally, light some candles and put some music playing before your partner arrives.
Planning a Massage Night for Two – Step 3: Beginning the massage
Before beginning the massage, make sure your partner is comfortable. Then you can start out with a short head or back massage to get a feel for what you are doing. Ask for feedback from your partner – remember, this is your Valentine’s Day gift to her – so you can be sure that she is comfortable with the amount of pressure.
Then have her lie down on the massage table and begin the massage by applying some lotion or oil. The rest is up to you!
