during an initial consultation, on your first visit, you will be asked a number of questions regarding your health and medical history to be sure that you will be able to receive a massage treatment. rest assured that information given is treated in the strictest confidence. it may well be necessary, with your permission, to refer your case to your GP or medical specialist before doing anything.
both you and I can be nude during the treatment, if that's your preference. if you are at all cold, I will gladly cover body parts not being worked on. I am a life-long naturist and my wife and I run a naturist bed and breakfast where nudity is normal. for me to get dressed to give a massage seems pointless. for naturists nudity is natural and nothing to be ashamed of.
if at any time before or during (after is too late) the massage you are uncomfortable with me working in sensitive areas, just let me know and I will avoid them.
a full and complete massage of either sex is not without the potential for misunderstanding. unlike spa or beauty massage a naturist massage allows full access to all areas of the body. spa and beauty massage therapists are trained to maintain their clients modesty by keeping areas not being worked on covered at all times, some refusing to massage males between navel and knee. the areas usually covered up are, of course, the genitals and/or breasts. these areas are neglected in the interest of avoiding giving offence.
the course of a full massage, as I do it, starts on the back with the shoulders and shoulder blades. I then work along each side of the spine and down to the sacrum, buttocks and hip joints. onto the back of the thighs and lower buttocks, then calves and feet to finish. on the front I start on the feet working up to calves and thighs. then detail work around the abdominal cavity and muscles. next onto the upper torso with strokes to the chest muscles (massage of ladies breasts is usually included but is entirely optional), upper shoulders and neck, moving on to the arms and hands. the face and scalp are included in a full-body massage. lymphatic drainage strokes are blended amongst the general muscle strokes.
the strokes likely to cause concern are those that address the pelvic girdle, the lower abdomen, the pubis and groin, the inner thighs and the buttocks, and the breasts for women.
the pelvic girdle has numerous muscle attachments front, back, top and bottom. most are involved in balance and motion. all the major upper leg muscles attach somewhere at the pelvic girdle with many deep in the groin. others attach on the hip or cross from the lower spine, sacrum and coccyx to the hip joint and thigh. some originate at the bottom edge of the pubic bone and the ischium (the boney bit you sit on). back muscles attach at the pelvic crest and the spine or sacrum. the large muscles forming the buttocks stretch from the sacrum, coccyx and upper edges of the pelvis to the thigh and hip joint. adductor muscles attach deep under the pelvis and stretch down the inner thigh. quadraceps and hamstrings attach to the pelvic crest. on the lower abdomen stomach muscles attach to the top of the pubic bone while other muscles join the upper edges of the pelvis. lymph nodes exist beside the pubic bone and inguinal area (the crease across the tops of your legs).
the muscles in the abdomen stretch from the breastbone to the pubic bone and mainly comprise a number of smaller horizontal muscles (including the six-pack) and connecting tissue. massaging occurs along the course of the colon, around the edges of the abdominal cavity and across the abdominals from the top of the pubic bone up to the bottom of the ribcage.
abdominal muscles attach to the top edge of the pubic bone while adductor muscles (inner thigh) attach to the bottom, front and crest. there is a major lymph node in the centre of the abdomen and others each side of the pubis; in the inguinal creases and on the inner thighs. these are massaged by strokes that travel from just above the inside of the knee up the inner thigh, into the inguinal crease and up each side of the pubis onto the central abdomen. work is very close around the genitals - please let me know if you wish me to avoid these areas.
the tops of the legs front, back and sides, are treated with longer strokes originating just above the knee and travelling all the way up into the groin or onto the hip. some strokes involve either a squeezing of the thigh muscles along the full length or a wringing action with hands working from both sides up and down between knee and groin. work will, at times, be very close to the genitals when in the groin as adductor muscles attach to the bottom edge of the pubic bone and the ischium. read in the last section above about lymphatic drainage and the pubis.
strokes associated with the buttocks may go partially between the cheeks. the first are small circular movements covering the whole of each cheek in turn. conventionally these stop about two thirds the way down but, this misses out the area below the cheeks where a number of inner thigh muscles attach to the ischium. the other is a squeezing movement that starts above the back of the knee and continues all the way to the top of the large buttock muscle, the gluteus maximus.
the breasts are rarely massaged in a spa or beauty setting and this is entirely a matter of personal preference during a naturist massage. they are often omitted as the tissue can be too sensitive to touch with any pressure, the amount that can be tolerated varying greatly from one person to another. there is little in the way of muscle here with skin tension providing support. there are, however, numerous lymph nodes on and around the breasts. strokes are usually restricted to a gentle kneading around the outer edges from the sides and between them over the breastbone and inner ends of ribs. pectoral muscles run under the breast tissue and attach to the breastbone and ribs and are usually only accessed between the breasts and under the outside edges.
massaging a completely naked male can be a problem with genitals getting in the way. my solution is simply to do the work; you may prefer to hold yourself to one side while I do the massaging. with plenty of oil there is little danger of injury or damage. incidently gentlemen need not concern themselves about becoming aroused - I've seen it all before!
the problems are not so great when massaging a fully nude woman. ladies should remember that a number of strokes are applied high between the legs in the inguinal crease, front and back; directly beside the vaginal entrance and on the perineum. massage of the breasts and around the genital area, is entirely optional - please tell me if you prefer me to avoid these areas.
if at any time before or during (after is too late) the massage you are uncomfortable with the idea of me working in sensitive areas or if you feel the work will be invasive - just let me know and I will avoid them.
