Over time, our bodies and minds build up aches, pains, and stresses from everyday life. The pressures of our responsibilities can get to us, and an excellent way to alleviate that build up of pressure is to get a therapeutic massage. An expert masseuse can remove the knots out of your shoulders or get rid of any aches that have been bothering you. They can give your body a refreshed feeling that makes you feel like you have just been reborn.  

But which type of massage should you opt for?

We recommend a Nuru massage - it could be just what your body needs.

So What Is a Nuru Massage?

The word ''Nuru'' originates from the Japanese language and means ''slippery'', and the massage usually involves covering both the client and the masseuse in gel or oil. 

You might wonder why

Unlike traditional massages, this is a full-body therapy that involves complete contact between the masseuse and the client.   

Nuru massage therapy involves skinship which is key to our health. Studies have shown that touching reduces blood pressure and relieves pain, whether that is through getting a massage, hugging a friend, or just holding hands. 

Having become increasingly popular in recent Western culture, Nuru therapy is suitable for people of all genders and sexual orientations. With masseuses catering for all needs, Nuru massages in London can be found easily if you know where to look.

What Are The Benefits of a Nuru Massage? 

Helps Fight Stress and Depression 

Nuru massages provide a huge amount of mental relaxation, and can help prevent stress and even depression. It can easily become part of a self-care ritual to help relieve any metal strain you may have been feeling.  

Helps Fight and Reduce Cellulite 

Because of the nature of the Nuru massages, the kneading of the body can help remove cellulite from the body. Mixed with Nuru gel or essential oils, this therapy can also help detox the body of any impurities.  

Relaxes Muscles and Moisturises Skin 

Nuru gel has a lot of moisturising benefits, and if an essential oil is used, this can not only moisturise the skin but also provide health benefits for the skin. 

Promotes Circulation and Blood Flow

You may find that certain parts of the body, particularly your hands and feet, can feel cold due to poor blood flow to those areas of the body. A Nuru massage can help blood circulation around the body by smoothing out any knots or tangles in the muscles. Firm pressure can aid blood flow, especially in the colder months when we aren't moving around much and are mainly staying indoors. 

Boosts the Immune System

The nature of a Nuru massage allows for the cells of your body to be refreshed, optimising the efficiency of everything from the digestive system to blood circulation and our overall immune system.  

Helps with Premature Ejaculation 

The Nuru massage is an ancient art and incorporates tantric massage techniques. These techniques can often help people who suffer from premature ejaculation. Nuru therapy can help improve sensitivity and combat premature ejaculation through breathing techniques and other tantric teachings. 

In summary, the benefits of Nuru massage are incredibly varied and span both mental and physical health. While less traditional in style, Nuru therapy is still a popular choice of massage in Western culture with masseuses readily available throughout the UK, and particularly London.
