Standard Massages and Erotic Massages
For many people, the entire concept of a massage is synonymous with an erotic massage. This has believably led to some confusion. Some people will go to special massage parlors more or less expecting the same sorts of therapeutic massage treatments that they would get at chiropractic offices. Other people will go to those very same therapeutic massage therapists' offices expecting that they're going to receive something resembling an erotic massage.
All massages are about stimulation of some variety or another. Therapeutic massages are about stimulating the muscles in order to release tension and promote physical healing. Erotic massages are about arousal and stimulating a person all over his or her body in order to promote sexual stimulation. Some types of erotic massage are fairly mild. They will essentially include a therapeutic massage portion, except the masseuse will include direct sexual stimulation as part of the process. Other types of erotic massage, such as the Nuru massage, are much more intimate than that.
The Stimulating Potential of the Nuru Massage
Nuru massages involve people rubbing bodies with one another. The stimulating potential of something like that is tremendous given the level of skin contact. With the majority of massages, including the majority of erotic massages, the therapist or practitioner is just going to use his or her hands. With Nuru massages, the practitioner will use his or her entire body.
Massage practitioners are usually fully clothed, and they will only slowly remove part of the clothing of the person receiving the massage. Both parties are completely unclothed during the typical Nuru massage. Even people who have received quite a few erotic massages are often unprepared for just how stimulating a Nuru massage can be, since they're still not usually going to be accustomed to the massage therapist stimulating them using his or her full body.
The line between a massage and a sex act tends to blur slightly with something like a Nuru massage, given the level of contact involved. The therapist douses the recipient's body with a special gel before the procedure, and then douses his or her own body before the procedure. Both parties are going to be covered with this gel, which is only going to stimulate the skin and everything else further. The gel is partly made from seaweed. For the most part, the relevance of the gel just has to do with the fact that it's easier to achieve high levels of stimulation that way. However, some people claim that the seaweed itself and the other ingredients are important when it comes to the erotic aspects of the massage. This isn't the sort of thing people will find at a conventional health spa, to say the least.
The Most Stimulating of all Massages
People who have had Nuru massages have reported that there is nothing really like them. These are some of the most potent erotic experiences people can have beyond conventional sex acts. Indeed, plenty of them may have their own therapeutic effects as well, although those are probably going to be side effects for many people.
