A full-body massage can return your whole body to a state of total relaxation, but it takes a skilled massage therapist to perform such an intricate task. While the name may speak for itself, it might not be clear what actually happens during a full-body massage. So, what is a full-body massage, and how can it benefit you?

What Is a Full-Body Massage and What Happens During One?

Before you have the massage, it’s important to be prepared to ensure you’re in the right frame of mind and are ready for the experience. Upon entering the room, you’ll meet your massage therapist, and they’ll give you instructions on what to do next. If you’re experiencing a London Tantric massage, you’ll have already picked out your masseuse, so you’ll immediately recognise the beautiful and talented person who’ll be greeting you.

You’ll need to remove your clothes and any jewellery that might get in the way of your massage, but you don’t need to remove your undergarments if you’d prefer to keep them on. The massage therapist will then lie you down on the massage table, having created a serene and relaxing atmosphere –– sometimes with the assistance of relaxing, ambient music or the use of oil burners.

The massage therapist will then work on all the different parts of your body, applying pressure to your skin and muscles in each area to relax your body and soothe your mind. You can communicate with your therapist to tell them where you have sore, achy or tense muscles to help them give you the ultimate massage. 

How Long Is a Full-Body Massage?

For a therapist to massage the entire body, sessions will last at least an hour. This allows enough time for the masseuse to work all the different areas of the body and provide you with ultimate relaxation. At London Tantric, you can book your massage for an extra hour so you can spend more time with your massage therapist and experience the mind-blowing massage for longer.

What Are the Benefits of a Full-Body Massage?

Feeling relaxed — a full-body massage can revitalise your body and mind in ways you might not be aware of. We’ve covered the numerous physical and mental benefits of erotic massage, but what about the benefits of a full-body massage?

Reducing Muscle Tension 

One of the more obvious benefits of a massage for the whole body is muscle relaxation. If you have tense muscles or knots in your muscles –– commonly found in your neck, shoulders and back –– a massage is an amazing way to help reduce soreness and relieve pain. There are many reasons why you might have tense or sore muscles, from poor posture to psychological stress and joint problems to the way you sleep, but whatever your issue, a full-body massage can take care of these problems.

Increasing Joint Flexibility and Mobility

Whether you’re an active person or you only exercise occasionally, increasing your flexibility can make you feel incredibly liberated. Having more flexible joints will make everyday tasks –– from emptying the dishwasher to driving your car –– feel easier to accomplish and can help reduce the risk of injuries like muscle strains.

The masseuse will work on each part of your body. Applying pressure to the muscles around your joints will keep the soft tissues supple, giving you greater flexibility and range of motion around each joint. By working on muscles, connective tissues, ligaments, tendons and joints, regular massages can help you reclaim your body from injuries, soreness and general tension.

Improving Your Circulation

As pressure is applied to your body, the friction that’s created will generate heat, causing blood to rush to your skin’s surface. The friction also has an exfoliating effect, removing dead skin cells and revitalising your skin from head to toe. Applying this technique all over the body will help improve your circulation, stimulating the flow of blood to all parts of your body.

Reducing Stress and Improving Breathing

When people get stressed, they tend to hold a lot of tension in their bodies, restricting their breathing and multiplying their anxiety. If you aren’t fully aware of your body’s state –– or you don’t seek out methods of managing your stress, like a massage –– you can end up carrying all this stress around with you. 

Massage therapists will help you become more in tune with your body by working on the muscles across your back, shoulders and chest. By reducing the tension across these muscles, you’ll be able to breathe more freely and deeply, allowing you to counteract feelings of stress and making you feel more at ease.

Conclusion: Should You Get a Full-Body Massage?

With numerous benefits and only a small investment of your time, you could achieve a greater sense of wellness with a full-body massage.
