An important thing to remember is that the traps are a sensitive spot and if you press a tad too hard, it will hurt. Be extremely gentle and listen to her to watch out for the spots that hurt.
How to massage her traps: Your girl can lie on her stomach or she can sit on a chair while you rub her traps. This muscle group that is easy to massage and delightful to be massaged upon.
2) Massage your girl's thighs
Whether it's been a big night out or a massive day going from one place to another, thighs are one of the first muscle groups that feel the 'burn out'. Thigh muscles deserve a lot of love and pampering after a hectic day. Pampering your girl and showing her some love won't make you look any less the alpha male you already are.
It is best if you take one leg at a time. Start by rubbing and pressing the upper thigh muscles right from the hip bone to the knee. Then do the lower thigh muscles, right from the end of the buttocks to the back of the knee.
Gently clamp her thigh with both your palms and press/rub gently as you work your way from the top of the thigh to the bottom. Repeat the movement for a few times.
How to massage her thighs: Allow your girl to lie on her back as you massage her thighs. Lift her legs up and allow her to release all the tension from her abdomen and thigh muscles.
3) Massage your girl's arms
Massage your girl's arm from shoulder to finger. You will be going through numerous muscle groups including the shoulder deltoids, biceps, triceps, forearms and the palm. You can either do one arm at a time or take both arms at once.
Start by holding and rubbing her deltoids, which is the part of the shoulder which extends on her arms. Work your way down the biceps, triceps and forearms. When you reach her wrists, take your girl's palm into your hand and randomly press gently at different spots in her palms.
Continue doing that and proceed to her fingers. When you reach the tip of her fingers, work your way back up to her deltoids from where you started.
How to massage her arms: While you massage your woman's arm, she can be sitting on a chair or lying down. It really does not matter as long as she is comfortable and you have access to her arms. Lying down will help her relax more.
4) Massage your girl's feet
Ladies love a rub along the ankles, heels, toes and the soles of their feet because a foot massage is relaxing, fun and even slightly ticklish. A foot massage can be feels heavenly after a night out trotting in heels or after a busy day.
Give your girl a foot massage one foot at a time. Clasp her heel with both your hands and gently start pressing as you work your way towards the toes. Squish the sides of her feet. Press and rub each individual finger/toe.
Use your fingers or your thumbs to gently press random spots on the sole of her feet, just like how you did her palms. Repeat the entire movement and keep working from ankle to toe over and over again.
How to massage her feet: Get your girl to sit on a chair with ample back support and kneel down to hold her feet in your lap as as you massage them. Give your foot massage a special touch by leaving her feet in a tub of warm water for further relaxation as you move on to massage her elsewhere.
Tips to remember when you massage your girlfriend
- Be gentle. Pressing harder does not equal more relaxation. Pressing or rubbing too hard can really hurt and may even leave her with sore and aching muscles.
- Put on some music in the background while you massage her. Allow her to pick the type of music she wants to listen to while being massaged.
- While clothing is optional, it is likely that you and your partner may find the whole activity a bit too sensual. The aim of this is to relax her and not get into bed with her. So to keep the whole process entirely non-sexual, it'd be best if both of you had clothes on. She can wear a sports bra and tiny shorts so you have access to all the muscle groups without having to worry about clothing getting in the way.
- Massaging your woman does not always have to be an elaborate effort where you buy massage oils, ask her to lie down while you give her a nice rub. You can even massage her traps when she's back from college/work just to relax her mind. You could massage her thighs the morning after a big night out. The point is to keep it simple and have a no-nonsense approach to it. Even a 5 minute rub can do wonders to perk up her mood.
