Trouble is, massage, as simple as it sounds, can be fraught with expectation. How to get it just right for your Valentine love? Massage therapist Rekha Von Ehren provided easy reflexology massage tips, and you can learn them by heart today!
VALENTINE MASSAGE TIP 1:
Be inconsistent. Touch your partner with your fingertips, knuckles, elbows, the full palm and the heel of your palm. Likewise, while touching, use a variety of strokes – from deep rubbing and kneading to tickling and light scratching. And feel free to lean in close, using your body weight to add force.
VALENTINE MASSAGE TIP 2:
Reflexology says that the hands and feet are microcosms of the body. When tenderly caressed, hands and feet can signal the interior of the body. So, in theory, you can touch a person’s heart by massaging the ball of the left foot, or tap into your beloved’s brain by massaging the big toes.
VALENTINE MASSAGE TIP 3:
Hands, full of nerve endings, are incredibly sensitive. So massage each finger along the joint to the tip with your fingertips or, perhaps, lips and mouth.
