Before you begin your sensual massage journey, it is very important that you know how to set the mood for romantic couple massage?
It’s important to prepare the room or location in which you will be performing the massage on your partner.
Your ultimate goal will be to create a soothing and relaxing environment that encourages both romance and release of stress, anxiety, and inhibition.
The first and most important thing you will want to do when preparing for the romantic couple massage is to schedule the massage during a time when you and your lady have will have a couple of hours of alone time together.
You don’t even have to tell her what you’re up to.
Just tell her you have a surprise for her a couple of days in advance, get your massage supplies ready, and be willing and able to perform when the time arrives.
Following are some important tips on how to set the mood for romantic couple massage?
#1. Eliminate Interruptions
When performing a sensual and erotic massage, you will want to eliminate all possible interruptions.
This includes things like turning both the phone and the answering machine off.
The same goes for cell phones, pagers, and any other electronic devices that make noise or vibrate when some type of message is received.
The goal is to eliminate any possible distractions that might present as a nuisance.
Other possible distractions might include pets, like a cat or dog that may enter the room or whine, whimper, and scratch at the door.
Watches that have alarms or beep to signal each hour can also pose as a distraction. And, of course, children!
If you have children, you might want to consider having your kids spend time at a friend’s house or have a family member take care of them for a couple of hours.
If your schedule permits, you can also consider performing the massage while the kids are at school.
Just imagine how surprised (and impressed) our partner would be if you came home from work early one day just to spend some alone time with her and to give her a sensual and romantic massage!
It’s very important to keep in mind that when performing a sensual and erotic massage, your goal is to connect both physically and mentally with your partner.
To achieve this, both you and your partner will need to be able to slip into a state of mind that requires intense focus and concentration.
You will not want anything, not even the faintest beep of a watch or the sniffing of a dog’s nose under the door, breaking your concentration.
So be sure to alleviate any interruptions that might keep you and your partner from having a relaxed and romantic environment.
#2. Music & Sound is Must for a Romantic Couple Massage.
Nothing helps set the mood for a romantic and peaceful environment like the sound of soft music.
It is essential when it comes to encouraging the mind to relax.
Music is also helpful in reducing background noises, such as children playing outside, cars driving by, and barking dogs.
When it comes to your choice of music, you will want to choose something that is slow and soft. The music should be relaxing.
It can be strictly instrumental or include lyrics—just as long as the singer’s voice has a relaxing effect.
Music that has added sounds of a soothing stream of water or ocean waves in the background can also bevery soothing.
There are many musical tracks made just for erotic massage.
Not only are these musical tracks soft and relaxing, some of them are very sensual and seductive, so it never hurts to look into them.
As far as music goes, soft and romantically stimulating is best.
However, for extra fun you can plan your music mix to start off slow and gentle and ramp up in tempo until it crescendos into full blown love making rhythm – this makes for a very fun time.
There is plenty of music out there like this or you can put together your own set.
The main thing is to be creative and have fun! If you already know your lovers music tastes, the stuff that turns her on, then by all means use that.
Remember: when it comes to music, the idea is to create a sensual and romantic environment—one that stimulates the senses and promotes relaxation, romance, and seduction.
#3. Lighting for Romantic Couple Massage.
Lighting is also very important when it comes to creating a soothing and romantic environment.
And what’s the most popular source of light that’s directly linked to romance?
When preparing your massage environment, turn off all electrical lighting and fill the room with the light from several candles.
The soft warm glow and flickering of candlelight sets a romantic and seductive space.
It will also help you convey the message that you are giving a sweet and pleasurable massage with several seductive experiences to look forward to.
Be sure to test out the lighting beforehand to ensure you achieve adequate lighting.
The key is to avoid making the room too dark or too light.
You want the lighting to be enough to where you can comfortably see what you are doing, but dim enough to relax the mind and to help keep your partner from feeling too exposed while lying naked on the massage table or bed.
When using candles, be sure to place them in areas where they can safely burn.
Avoid placing them too close to curtains or near anything that could easily ignite from the constant heat, such as paper and fabric.
#4. Warmth and Comfort for Romantic Couple Massage.
Another key to creating a relaxing and romantic massage environment is ensuring that your partner is comfortable.
Because your partner will be naked during the massage, it is very important that the room and the table or bed you have her lie down on is warm and cozy.
If the room is cold, then crank up the heat a few minutes prior to inviting your partner into the room.
If you have a small space heater, you can set it up in the room and let it run for about a half an hour near the area your lady will be laying.
Keep in mind that candles produce heat as well.
If you have enough of them in the room, they will eventually help to keep the room warm.
No matter what you do, just be sure not to overheat the room.
You can easily test out the temperature by undressing and laying down on the massage bed or table.
Be sure to keep in mind the needs of your woman.
Some women tend to get cold easily, whereas others run naturally warm.
If you sleep with the covers kicked off while your lady has them pulled up to her ears, then this might be a good indicator that she needs the room a little warmer than you do.
However, don’t make the room so hot that you it causes you to break out into a sweat.
Keep in mind that the massage oil you will be using will also be warmed for comfort, so this will help to warm your partner up, as will your hands moving sensually over her body.
Your partner may also not be comfortable undressing in front of you—it all depends on the state of your relationship.
So to be on the safe side, when you ask your partner to undress and lie down on the table, either step out of the room or provide her with a robe that she can slip into after undressing in the bathroom or another room.
After she is lying down on the table, place a towel or a piece of silk fabric over her buttocks so that she does not feel so exposed at the start of the sensual romantic massage.
You will also want to have another towel or additional piece of fabric to place over her breasts and pelvic region after she turns over.
This is very important when it comes to keeping her from feeling vulnerable, as she is lying there naked in front of you.
Although you may find her irresistibly sexy, she may not think so of herself at the time.
However, as the massage progresses, your partner will eventually lose her inhibitions and open up to you, at which point she won’t care if she is completely exposed.
#5. Massage Table or Bed
Because your partner will be lying down for up to an hour or more, you will want to ensure the table or bed you create for her is soft and comfortable.
Although a bed can be very cozy, it can be difficult to maneuver around due to its large size. Many beds are also not high enough.
As a result, if you use the bed you sleep in to give your lady a massage, you could wind up having to hunch over most of the time, which can be very uncomfortable for your lower back.
You might also have to get into the bed to perform the massage, which is not what you want to do, as it could create too much jostling around as you reposition yourself in an attempt to reach other areas of your partner’s body.
The ideal massage bed or table is one that elevates your partner to about the level of your waist and can be easily worked around while performing the massage.
If you are like most people, you probably don’t have a massage table.
However, you probably have a table, such as a dining table, from which you can create your own massage table.
All you need to create a comfortable massage table is something for padding, such as some fluffy blankets, a comforter, pillows, or a sleeping bag or two, and a sturdy table or countertop, such as kitchen island, that allows you to reach your partner’s body from all sides.
You will want to place no less than 6 inches of padding on top of the table or countertop.
Once you have adequate padding, place a white sheet or a blanket or other soft fabric that is pleasing to the eye (even if you have to go out and buy something just for the massage occasion) over the padding.
Although you can use pillows for the padding, if you give your partner a pillow for her head, make sure it is not too thick.
A small, thin pillow works best. If your padding is sufficient, she should be comfortable even without a pillow.
Again, be sure the massage table is warm and comfortable.
You can test it out yourself first by lying down on it. If you find the surface is too hard, just add some more blankets—the thicker the better.
#6. Benefits of Massage Oil for Romantic Couple Massage.
Using oil during massage is very important.
Not only will this help your hands to glide smoothly over her body, its scent, warmth, and sensation will add to the seductive nature of the massage itself.
Picking the right type of oil is important.
Although baby oil is very popular, it’s not the best type of oil to use when performing a sensual and erotic massage.
This is because it is too easily absorbed by the body.
As a result, you will find yourself having to stop and add more quite frequently.
Your massage oil doesn’t have to be expensive; it just needs to be the right kind of oil.
The best types of massage oils are those that derive from plants, which have a light texture to them for easy gliding of the hands.
The following are some suggestions on what to look for when it comes to selecting a massage oil:
≫≫ Almond oil makes for a great massage oil. Although it’s a little higher in price than other oils, it’s worth every penny spent when using it for a home massage on your partner.
≫≫ Sunflower, grape seed, safflower, sesame, peanut, coconut, and avocado oils make great massage oils. They can be easily found it most grocery stores.
≫≫ To add to the sensuality of your massage oil, try adding a few drops of aromatherapy oil, such as chamomile or lavender. Each are excellent scents, just be sure they are high quality.
≫≫ Never use petroleum-based oils for massage (including baby oil).
Although mineral oil is often touted as great oil for the body, many massage professionals don’t like the feel of it.
It is also felt that plant based oils are healthier for the body than mineral oils.
≫≫ When using plant-based oils for massage, keep in mind that they do not have a long shelf life.
This means they can spoil and go bad. So buy only what you need for one or two massages and be sure to use the oil within 30 days, throw out any excess, and replace it with new oils.
When it comes to how to apply the oil, it depends on your own what seems easiest to you.
Some people prefer to put the oil in a glass bowl; others transfer the oil into a squeeze bottle.
You may have to try out both methods before you can decide which works best for you, so if you are unsure, have both methods on hand during your first massage so you can figure out which is right for you.
Whichever method you choose, just be sure to avoid using a spray bottle—it just isn’t very romantic.
When it comes to plant-based oils, you don’t need to use very much of the oil during massage.
Usually all it takes is a half a teaspoon in the palm of your hand.
Be sure not to squirt the massage oil directly onto your partner.
This is not romantic and you also risk the massage oil being too hot or cold if you don’t take the time to rub it in your hands first.
Last but not least, never apply the massage oils to your partner’s genitals.
The breasts, of course, are fine, but avoid rubbing the massage around or inside the vagina.
This is most important to remember as the massage progresses into the erotic stages.
Before touching her vagina or inserting your fingers, you will want to wipe the oils from your hands.
This means you will need to keep a warm, wet towel nearby for when the moment is right.
Never wipe her with the towel, however, as this could kill the mood.
If you need lubrication for the genitals during the massage, use a personal lubricant or saliva.
To make sure you are prepared in every way, have some personal lubricant on hand, such as Sylk or Astroglide.
Make sure you take time to keep it warm and out of sight prior to using it.
An effective way to do this is to heat a damp hand towel in the microwave before the massage and then wrap the warm towel around the lubricant.
You can then set it aside on a nearby table. When the time is right, you can use the damp towel to wipe the massage oil from your hands and replace it with the warm lubricant.
When it comes to using the massage oil, the key is to key it warm.
The best way to do this is to heat the oil in a glass bowl or plastic squirt bottle in the microwave just prior to inviting your partner into the room for the massage.
To keep the bowl or bottle of oil warm throughout the massage, wrap a warm towel around it that has been heated in the microwave or dryer.
#7. Other Sensual Mood-Setting Tips for Romantic Couple Massage.
In addition to eliminating interruptions and creating a comfortable and relaxing environment, there are a few others things you can do to enhance the massage environment and create a sensual mood.
No matter if you incorporate just one or all of them, your partner is sure to enjoy the extra effort you put into ensuring her pleasure ≫≫ Food and drink.
This can be a great massage mood enhancer.
Although you don’t want your partner to have a full stomach while lying on the massage area, tasty little tidbits such as chocolate and fresh fruit are fun, especially when paired with an excellent choice of wine.
Just be sure not to put the food or drink on her body.
Remember: her body will be covered in warm oil, so you don’t want to kill the mood by placing something cold on her.
You also won’t want to lick anything off her body.
≫≫ Scents. Adding some scents to the room can also enhance the mood.
You can easily stimulate her senses by using scented candles, burning incense, or spraying a few sprits of her favorite perfume around the room.
Just be sure to use scents that you know are pleasing to her.
Avoid using air fresheners to scent the room, as most of them just aren’t sexy.
≫≫ Wine or mixed drink. If your partner enjoys wine, then be sure to get a bottle of her favorite wine and have a glass of it waiting for her when she enters the massage room.
If she has a favorite mixed drink or cocktail, then make a pitcher of it for her.
Having a glass of wine or a cocktail just prior to the massage can do wonders for her relaxation.
Just be sure she doesn’t drink too much—you don’t want her to fall asleep!
≫≫ Flowers. Most women love flowers. So as a finishing touch, you can never go wrong by placing a few flowers in the room—especially her favorite flowers!
Rose petals are also excellent for creating a romantic environment.
You can spread a few of them out on the floor around the massage table and on top of nearby furniture.
Just be sure not to place them directly on top of the massage table, because if she lays on them, they will stick to her and get in the way of the massage.
