Touch and manipulation is directly related to sensory and physical arousal. The science behind sensual massage is rooted on touch's ability to increase our body's reaction to certain stimuli which at the end will result to heightened senses and even greater mental alertness.

Sensual massage or erotic massage is an ancient practice which has been proven to have existed in cultures from over 2,000 years ago. Sensual massage combines the physical with the spiritual. It is a fusion of environment, preparation and pressure points. It is as much about how to touch as it is about where to touch.

This massage therapy technique actually uses some of the strokes used in traditional massages like the Swedish massage and pressure point massage. Kneading and rolling strokes are used to warn-up the muscles in preparation for trigger point manipulation in the later part of the treatment.

But before the actual therapeutic massage can begin, certain preparations have to be made by the massage therapist first. The temperature in the room needs to be comfortable; it is better to have the room at a warmer than usual temperature. Aroma candles at to the ambience as the room's light is usually at a minimum to maintain intimacy. Fragrances and oils are also integrated into the sensual massage treatment, making use of jasmine, vanilla, rose, strawberry, and raspberry scents.

False perceptions on erotic massage have given the technique certain malicious associations but it should be known that professionals such as psychiatrists and couples counselors make use of the benefits of sensual massage on improving the relationship dynamics of dating and married couples. Erotic massage is a common recommendation to men with erectile problems and women with low levels of libido. Studies on this massage therapy have shown promising results on the improvement o one's sensory alertness and arousal capacity.

As mentioned, the massage is a combination of traditional massages including Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, aromatherapy, and foot massage/reflexology. The strokes progress from light gliding touches to heavier longer strokes on the back, claves, buttocks, arms, and shoulders. Ears, toes, and fingertips are also manipulated through light touch, allowing ones senses to focus on the slightest of sensations. Massage therapist make use of their weight to change the pressure of each stroke which keeps the body guessing as to what touch comes next.
