What Is Nuru Massage?

Touch as a healing treatment has its origins in ancient cultures and techniques. Natural healing and massage were influential in both the East and the West for treating injuries, relieving pain, and preventing and curing illnesses. Furthermore, it is well-known for reducing stress and producing profound relaxation.

Nuru massage is a Japanese-style sensual massage where "Nuru" means "slippery." The masseuse massages the person using Nuru massage gel which is drab, odourless, and composed entirely of Nori Seaweed.

This type of massage is popular worldwide due to the high demand for these incredibly erotic personal sessions. In fact, 30% of London-based men surveyed said they had seen a Nuru massage practitioner in the previous six months, but Nuru massage isn't just for men. It has even made its way out of sexy massage parlours and into mainstream culture, with many couples enjoying a night of pleasure with the Nuru technique. 

The History Of Nuru Massage

Japan is unquestionably one of the most amazing and culturally rich countries on the planet. Many of us are impressed by Japanese culture, which offers fantastic animation and cutting-edge technology. But aside from this, Japan is also known for Nuru massage, which has a considerably longer (and more colourful) history.

The sex industry flourished in Japan centuries ago, with several red-light districts in bustling towns to serve gentlemen at all hours. Consider the case of Yoshiwari, which has ties to the sex industry dating back to 1617. Yoshiwari was previously Tokyo's largest red-light district, with over 9,000 female prostitutes working to please men in the late 1800s. 

An unofficial ranking system was in place, which was frequently based on the females' beauty, age, and ethnicity. Younger females from better circumstances fetched a more significant price and were well-liked by wealthy gentlemen.

Yoshiwari, like other red lights, was bursting at the seams with business, which frequently spilt over into the lives of those who did not work in the sex industry. Ordinary Japanese residents became irritated by this and demanded that the Japanese government prohibit the sale of sex. The government decided that the only way to solve the problem was to make prostitution illegal, putting thousands of females out of employment. The once-bustling walk-ins began to deteriorate as the red light districts faded away.

Even though many Japanese red-light districts had vanished overnight, the demand for these services remained high. Many young women were keen to find new ways to market their legal services.  

It all started with Hamida, a 19-year-old medical student who had previously worked part-time as a sex worker to help pay for her studies. Hamida had a groundbreaking notion that would forever change the landscape of the massage business. During her time in medical school, the bright student discovered how applying a seaweed concoction known as Nori gel to the skin of sick patients helped them recuperate. Hamida saw Nori gel's sensual potential as part of an erotic massage because of its very slippery and sliding texture.

Hamida enrolled in a Tantra training school to improve her massage technique before inviting gentlemen to try her Nuru massage (which translates to slippery in Japanese). 

Due to the gel's easy sliding nature, Hamida strengthened the sensual components by integrating the masseuse's breasts and bum to conduct strokes, usually by rubbing against the receiver's body. It's safe to say that the massage was a big hit among the men, and Hamida couldn't keep up with the demand. She began to teach Nuru massage to her fellow former sex workers, and Yoshiwari's red-light district rapidly converted into a row of bustling massage parlours with customers. Nuru rapidly became a phenomenon appreciated by many Japanese men, and other red-light neighbourhoods swiftly followed suit. 

Nuru has been a popular service in Japan for almost a century, but it was only in the last decade that the massage made its way to the west. There are two explanations for this. Many European and North American businesspeople have visited Tokyo in recent years for business objectives and tried a Nuru massage after a long day at the workplace. After liking the service so much, they have brought a demand for Nuru in their home cities, particularly London, Los Angeles and Paris. Pornography is also becoming more accessible, with many Western men watching Japanese Nuru online. They've got a need to experience Nuru for themselves since then. As a result of these considerations, many Japanese masseuses have relocated to western cities to tempt European and North American gentlemen. Nuru's popularity doubles every year due to Hamida and all of the excellent masseuses.

Following the destruction of World War II, Japan rose to become an economic superpower, and Japanese culture began to spread over the globe, which is how many westerners first encountered this magnificent body-to-body experience. 

Even though Nuru massage has become more well-known throughout time, it was not until the internet's emergence that it reached the next level of exposure. The rise of adult content sites grew due to ease of access by anyone with electricity and an internet connection. Nuru and soapy massages were now viewed by millions of people worldwide for the first time in history.

Benefits Of Nuru Massage

Nuru massage offers numerous physical and psychological health benefits. Indeed, according to research conducted at the Nuru massage parlour in London, over 80% of consumers reported a substantial boost in their psychological and physical health after receiving a massage. Aside from that, the oil used is good for the skin. It moisturises dry skin while also removing toxins from the body.

Massage therapists today use various techniques that date back to ancient times, all with the original intention of assisting people in restoring their body, mental well-being and quality of life.
