Massages are a form of touch therapy that involves rubbing and kneading of another person’s body with hands or massage devices. This can be done to relieve pressure in muscles, or to arouse a person. Massage devices can be wooden handles with balls to rub over the skin, or vibrating.

Types of Massages
There are many different types of massages, including:
Swedish massage is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration, and tapping to help relax and energize you.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage uses more pressure than a Swedish massage. It focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones, and joints).
Sports massage is similar to Swedish massage, but it’s geared toward people involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy that involves the use of smooth, heated stones. The massage therapist places the hot stones on specific points on your body and may also hold the stones while giving the massage.
Massage and Kink
Massages can be incorporated into kink play, either as a form of sensual touch or as a way to relax after intense scenes. Some people enjoy incorporating massage devices, such as vibrators or wooden handles, into their play. Others may enjoy using massage oils or lotions to enhance the experience.
