Curious about Nuru Massage? You are not alone! Nuru massage is one of the fastest growing erotic trends. As the only sex experts that focus on couples massage, we've been getting a ton of questions about Nuru Massage over at PleasureMechanics.com so we put together this guide on how to enjoy it at home!
Nuru Massage is a Japanese tradition, though it is not clear how long this sensual art has been practiced. Nuru Massage is a full body-to-body massage using a special ultra-slippery gel made out of seaweed. Often, a special inflatable mattress or dropcloth is used to contain the mess of the gel. One person simply relaxes while the other slips and slides all over their body! This full body contact is relaxing and arousing at the same time. Nuru Massage is usually offered in an erotic context rather than a therapeutic massage setting.
You can enjoy the erotic pleasures of Nuru Massage at home with your lover! This is NOT an everyday activity: it takes a little bit of preparation and time. But if you want a sensual, erotic, romantic idea for a luxurious date night in, you might want to try Nuru Massage.
If you are ready to experience the pleasure of Nuru Massage at home without all the mess, read on!
Nuru Massage At Home Tip #1: Forget the Seaweed. You can buy an at-home Nuru Massage kit, but we recommend you forget the seaweed powder and measuring cups. You don’t need a special expensive gel to experience the full body glide of Nuru Massage. We recommend using an all-natural oil. Try coconut oil (the smell will transport you to the tropics!) or almond oil. Coconut oil is solid at room temperature but quickly warms up into a smooth glistening oil that is excellent for your skin! Oil provides enough glide to create the pleasure of full body-to-body massage without being as messy and squishy as Nuru gel.
Nuru Massage At Home Tip #2: Use A Dedicated Sheet! Don’t ruin your good sheets with the oil from your at home Nuru Massage! Buy a cheap sheet that you use exclusively for massage. A thick flannel sheet works well to hold extra oil. If you are going to use a ton of oil, put down a mattress protector first, and then your flannel sheet on top of it and you’ll minimize any mess. After your delicious Nuru Massage, use hot water to wash your massage sheets so it will be fresh for next time!
Nuru Massage At Home Tip #3: Use your whole body. The art of Nuru Massage comes down to your ability to glide your whole body along your lover’s skin. This sensation of full body-to-body contact is the heart of erotic Nuru Massage. Start with your lover face down and glide your chest, belly and legs along their back. Use your hands to support your weight as you slide and glide up and down their skin. Try long glides up and down their body, circular motions and wave like undulations. Just have fun! Don’t take this seriously, just go for what feels good to you. We can guarantee you that your lover is enjoying the sensation of your body gliding along their skin, no matter what you are doing!
