Why Massage in General and Erotic Massage in Particular are so Popular

The massage industry is one of the fastest growing industries around the world including the United States. This growth results from the fact that massage provides numerous benefits for clients and they are gradually becoming more culturally acceptable than in previous years. For example, the US has about 350,000 massage therapists and students. In 2011 to 2015, the rate of employment in this sector increased by 19%. Americans also seem to appreciate getting a massage. Research shows that 39.1 million Americans had at least one massage in 2014.

It is important to note that various types of massage exist and some are more popular than others. One of the most popular kinds of massage is the erotic massage. Here are some of its benefits.

It helps you relieve your stress

erotic-massageStress builds up in a person because of many factors including pressure at work, financial problems, health difficulties, and relationship issues among others. Relieving your body and mind of stress is a difficult process, and turning to medication may actually do more harm than good. People are now choosing to opt for an erotic massage because it helps a person to relax both physically and emotionally. In fact, a study by the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) found that 33% of all the people who had received a massage in the last 12 months did so as a means of relieving their stress.

It improves a person’s physical health

Massage therapists primarily focus on a person’s muscles helping loosen the muscle tension in the person. Erotic massage is just an extension of this primary focus. In this type of massage, the masseuse will concentrate on a person’s muscles as well as their erogenous zones. In this way, the masseuse eases the person’s muscular and sexual tension. Doing so improves the person’s circulatory flow tremendously helping the heart, body muscles, and arteries function better than they were functioning before the massage.

Some studies also seem to suggest that erotic massages may help men overcome psychological barriers that might be contributing to sexual performance issues. However, these studies are not yet conclusive.

It is pleasurable

The study by AMTA, released this year, also showed that about 11% of the people who had a massage in the last 12 months did so because they wanted to feel good. In other words, they just wanted some pampering. In truth, most of the things people do in life are those that make them feel good, and erotic massages are not an exception. Humans have natural sexual instincts, so it is not a big surprise that so many people like this type of massage.
