Both these massages describe half their history through their names. Swedish massage developed as a major western massage now is available across the world whereas the Indonesian massage from Bali is actually a result of traditional Indian and Chinese medicine system. Let us see individually what they actually are.

Nude Massage: What You Should Know

A nude massage, also known as tantric massage or sensuous massage is a great comforting and one of its own kind of physical massage therapies that comprises naked bodies. It is nowhere near the normal other type of massage. The first place where it all goes different is when you will take of all your clothes or as much clothes, as you are comfortable. You will though have a sheet to wrap yourself up in case you feel cold during the massage.


There are subtypes in nude massage too. In some cases the massage therapist would be nude too, giving you massage through their body. This nude massage is what describes the true meaning of sensuous massage.Initially, the nude massage only had one person, who is having massage, without the clothes. Then after looking at the tantric ways, everyone started to have this naked body’s therapy.

What comes different from the naked massage is a spa. Generally, a spa has nothing included as nudity. It is against the etiquettes of spa but several spa parlors have this very interesting way of earning customers and that is why they often include nude massage in their service lists. People are nude after sauna too.

Some people have this mental setup that being fully nude while any sort of massage can actually bring them a better and comforting feel than normal massage. The theory is somewhat true but still massagers never force the people to fully nude for a good result of massage. It is all up on the person whether he wants to be nude semi nude or all clothes on. The European countries are more open to nakedness while massage than any other country in the world. It is about more relaxation and comfort. You can agree to nude massage with underclothes on but it would be very comforting if you avoid that too.

The nude massage is more rhythmic, done with more soothing feel. First starting with fingers and hands, massagers go with body-to-body massage and let your skin feel soothed. To get up the chart and start this massage, first you can ask someone whom you feel ok with for body-to-body touch. A professional though can be an entirely different experience. They have an experience of massaging all types of bodies and that is why, you can have a different feel with them. People try to relate the nude massage with sexual intercourse but this has nothing to do with it. It is just an effective relaxing exercise.
