Welcome to the Secret Tantric Beginner’s Guide to Nuru Massage. We absolutely recommend experiencing a Nuru Massage from one of our professional masseuses. However, if you’re not local to London and you can’t stop by to see us, you should try a Nuru Massage at home. You may be surprised by how much fun you and a partner can have with this form of erotic Japanese massage. With a little bit of preparation and following a few easy steps, you can give, and get, an amazing Nuru Massage at home.

There’s nothing quite like a professional massage to make you feel pampered and completely at ease.  When that professional massage is also erotic and performance by an enthusiastic expert,  all the better. But getting a professional erotic massage is not the right choice for everyone. There are lots of reasons that people opt for a DIY massage at home without seeking the guidance of a professional. Maybe we’re a bit biased but there really is no substitute for professional erotic massage. Understandably, seeing a professional can be nerve-racking for some people and for others it can pose a moral dilemma. These stigmas are unfortunate because there’s a lot to be gained from professional erotic massage. In lieu of that, you can still experience a fun and sensual erotic massage DIY-style.

What is Nuru Massage?

Nuru Massage is an exciting form of erotic massage that originated in Kawasaki, Japan.  During a Nuru Massage the masseuse uses their entire body to give the massage.  They use their hands, forearms, elbows, knees, even their full body weight, to press and rub against the client and give them erotic stimulation. Nuru Massage may sound like the same thing as body on body massage, and while it is very similar there is one distinct difference.  Typical body on body massage is practiced on a massage table or platform with massage oil. Nuru Massage is most often experienced on an inflatable mattress, using special organic Nuru gel

What is Nuru gel?

An authentic Nuru Massage requires use of Nuru gel. This 100% natural marine botanical gel is sourced from brown nori seaweed, the same kind of seaweed you eat when you have sushi. This incredibly nutrient-dense seaweed is full of skin nourishing compounds and has many benefits within its formulation. Nuru gel is chock-full of antioxidants and other natural materials that feed your skin and create a luxurious slippery sensation.  The term ‘nuru’ comes from a translated Japanese word for slippery. And boy, does it live up to its name! It is odorless, colorless, and flavorless;  it is water-based and more slick and slippery than any oil available for massage.  This incredible gel is used in Nuru Massage to lubricate the bodies of the masseuse and the client. Nuru gel creates an incredibly slick surface that allows for friction free full body massage, all while pampering your skin.

Prepare for your Nuru  massage

An at-home DIY Nuru Massage is easy to do and a lot of fun.  First you’ll need to make some preparations so that your Nuru  massage is as simple and carefree as possible.

One major consideration about Nuru Massage is that it can be messy. Luckily, unlike massage oils, Nuru gel is non-staining for most fabrics and porous surfaces. If you’re really concerned about Nuru gel  getting all over the surfaces of your home, we recommend that you invest in an inexpensive air mattress.  In addition to an air mattress, get yourself a painter’s drop cloth or use some old dark coloured towels that you don’t mind potentially staining. Towels or drop cloth ensure that you can experience your Nuru  massage with abandon without being distracted by what’s dripping onto the carpet or getting smeared into sheets. 

Get yourself an inexpensive air mattress

The addition of an air mattress is a great idea for a number of reasons:

  1. You don’t have to think about your mattress or sheets getting damp or ruined
  2. Air mattresses are inexpensive and when deflated, they fold up for easy storage.
  3. Many cheap air mattresses come with self-inflating features and pumps. Even if yours doesn’t it only takes a few minutes to blow them up.
  4. An air mattress provides an ideal position and support for a Nuru Massage. An air mattress on the floor is easier to stand over to position your body against your partner. Also, it provides some movement and bounce which can make body on body massage extra sexy.

Acquire all the elements of your at home Nuru Massage

Here is a quick check list so that you have everything you could possibly need to give an incredible at home erotic massage:

  • Special Nuru gel –  order online or find it at a quality sex shop
  • An inexpensive air mattress and a pump
  • Scented candles or other things to set the mood
  • Quiet background sound –  you can do better than having the TV on during an erotic massage. Either make or find a sexy playlist. 
  • Prepare a snack in advance – Relaxing with your lover after a session is a lovely way to bond, especially if there’s food and drink available.
  •  Something special for the bath or shower – You will want to begin and end your Nuru  massage sessions with a shower or bath so this is a great time to splurge on a fizzy bath bomb or something great smelling to use in the shower together.

Talk it through before you begin

We know it can be hard to believe, but erotic massage it’s not something that everyone is interested in. Before you go to all of the leg work and effort of preparing an incredible Nuru Massage at home for your partner, be sure that this is something that they want. Not everyone enjoys massage or finds it relaxing, especially when a new erotic element is being introduced. If you and your partner have never done something this intimate or had this sort of fun, talking about it before you begin is a good idea. One or both of you may feel shy, unsure, or even somewhat pressured to [articipate. The last thing you want to do is corner your partner and make them accept a massage simply because you went to a lot of effort to prepare it. Consent between couples is incredibly important and no one will have fun if either one of you doesn’t want to be there.

Talk about it after you’re finished

Before we get to the step by step instructions of how to give a Nuru Massage, we want to skip ahead to the end.  Talk about it before you begin, communicate while the massage is going on, and debrief about it afterwards.  This is why we recommend that you prepare a snack or drink in advance. When you’re both spent and slick with massage gel you’ll want to get into that final bath or shower together and begin to return to normal. This provides an opportunity to talk about how the massage went, what works for each of you and what you would change for next time.  

Don’t get hung up on technique, just communicate

Debriefing afterwards doesn’t have to be about skills and technique, it can be a discussion about what was comfortable, what was sexy or what you didn’t like. Giving each other this kind of feedback is a wonderful way to improve the next session you have together as well as learning how to express your needs and desires.

One-sided, taking turns, or mutual massage

Massage is an incredible way to communicate with a partner and express your wants and desires, as well as your willingness to give them pleasure. Decide together whether only one of you massages the other, you take turns,  or will it be a mutual massage where you both touch each other throughout?  Making sure that you’re on the same page about how the massage will go is a good way to start.  This will help you choose positions to experience the massage in as well as who does what, when.

How to give an at-home Nuru Massage

Begin by preparing the space where the massage will happen. Set up the air mattress, light the candles, prepare your Nuru gel, make everything as lovely as you can for your partner. Atmosphere goes a long way when it comes to massage, especially when the mood is sexy and erotic. Turn down the lights, add some soft music, and let the pampering begin.

Set the mood and soften your skin

Starting a Nuru Massage with a bath or a shower is always a good idea. It’s a great way to start things off and get the erotic energy flowing and your muscles relaxing. Bathing with your partner can be incredibly sensual so take your time with this part and ease into the massage. There’s no reason to rush unless you legitimately don’t have much time. Ideally you would use as much time as it takes to go through this process, but if real life is making that difficult, do the best you can with the time you have.

Start the massage

We recommend that erotic massage starts with the recipient laying face-down nude on the prepared massage surface. To begin, slather your hands and arms with Nuru gel and do the same to their feet, calves and thighs. Start with the arches of their feet and massage around and over their feet, up the back of their legs, teasing or completely avoiding touching their buttocks or other erogenous zones.  A great body on body massage involves an element of teasing to prolong the endurance of your desire. Because this is a private at home massage you and your partner can take it as far as you want to. You make the rules.

Spend some time on their back side

Sides, backs, and shoulders carry a lot of tension. Make sure that you spend some quality time turning your partner to mush by massaging their hips, ribs, and back. Begin with your hands and arms but feel free to use your chest, stomach or thighs to spread Nuru gel around. The slickness of the seaweed gel will make it easier for your bodies to glide together. Your body weight will create the most resistance and therefore the deepest part of the massage so don’t be afraid to lean into them.

Turn them over and turn up the heat

When you have successfully used your body to massage and arouse your partner on their backside, have them turn over. Once you are face-to-face and your partner is laying on their back, the heat and intensity of the massage will inevitably increase. Combining eye contact as well as the other visual elements of seeing each other’s slick, shiny bodies rubbing against each other  will be impossible to resist. Your instincts may be to go straight for their genitals or other erogenous zones, but spend some time avoiding those areas and really getting them excited. Or use a highly erotic part of your body to massage a less erotic part of their body. There are all kinds of combinations and the two of you will have a ton of fun finding out what feels best. 

Take it to the limit

If you find that your Nuru  massage is becoming a little bit sticky or stiff, simply add more Nuru gel. This is why you’ll be glad that you invested in that air mattress and you’re not having this massage on your 800 thread count Turkish cotton duvet cover!  With a professional massage, the activities are limited to the legalities and boundaries of both the client and the masseuse. With a private DIY Nuru Massage you and your partner can do whatever feels best for both of you. Use the massage as a prelude to lovemaking, have sex while you continue the massage, or simply use it as an exercise in intimacy. However the two of you interpret this time together, make the most of it. 

Compare and contrast your experiences

We are big supporters of DIY at-home massage. Performing erotic massage at home with a partner is a great way to change or improve your intimacy and sex life without great cost or effort. By creating an atmosphere for erotic massage, the two of you open pathways to new forms of communication and new levels of intimacy. Not only is this a generous and giving act, it is a wonderful way for both of you to discover new things about your sense of sensuality and it will create conversation about your relationship. Do your best to communicate freely and honestly and make space for your partner to communicate with you.
