How To Give A Romantic Hot Stone Massage

Mar 4, 2008
There is nothing more romantic than giving a gift that you have personally handcrafted or done. A scrapbook, a handwritten card, a painting or a shirt you have sewn yourself--whatever it is, when it comes from the one you care about, it inevitably becomes a priceless gift.

But if you've already tried all these and you are running out of ideas for the upcoming birthday of your loved one or any other special occasion that the two of you share, why not try giving him or her the best kind of romantic hot stone massage that will never be forgotten?

Yes, you have to undergo legitimate training to be a professional therapist but to give it as a personal gift, a license will not be necessary. Instead, what you need are these tips and a little creativity and romance.

Here are the steps in giving a romantic hot stone massage:

1. Research about the process of hot stone massage. There are many available resources online that you will find useful in your quest to give your loved one the best hot stone massage ever. You can also consult a professional therapist and undergo an informal training.

2. Prepare the massage area. Make the massage table comfortable by putting a padded cushion and pillows. You can also use the bed if there is no massage table available.

3. Create a relaxing ambience. To do this, you will have to dim the lights, light up some aromatherapy-scented candles, and play soothing music in the background. It's a good idea to play your romantic theme song if ever you have one. You can also play relaxing sounds like water fountain and nature sounds if you like.

4. Prepare the hot stones by immersing them in hot water. Make sure that they are not extremely hot. Make it a point to touch the stones first before putting them on your loved one's skin.

5. Let him or her take a relaxing bath before the massage as you prepare the hot stones.

6. Help him or her cool down and relax by giving sweet kisses and some cuddling.

7. Make use of what you have learned from your hot stone therapy lessons and research. Begin by putting the hot stones on key points of the body and then applying Swedish strokes on the parts of the body where the stones have been placed.

8. Don't forget to use massage oil to make relaxing the muscles easier.

9. Lie down next to your loved one after the session. You can either engage in some sweet talk or join him or her doze off to dreamland.

10. Give him or her souvenir to remember this occasion by. Either a romantic note saying how much you love him or her, or a box of chocolates (which can only be eaten a few hours after the therapy).

Giving a romantic hot stone massage is a cinch with these helpful steps. Make the special occasion memorable by giving your loved one a massage that he or she will never forget.
