Both Chinese and Japanese massage have been popular and widely used for thousands of years and now even the West have fully embraces these forms of massage which shows how they have really received that wide scale recognition globally now. Many of the oriental types of massage are actually quite similar in some ways and the key way is that it focuses, or the concept that underlies all of them is that it is based on the flow of energy through the whole body, i.e body and mind and allowing this to flow and to free up blockages through the body.
The Chinese method will classify the various energies and forces within a individual as Qi and it is problems with the flow and blockages that cause illness within the body. The masseur or masseuse will then use a variety of different techniques to solve the problem within the body. To help with this you will find that the practitioner will need to observe you, ask quite a few questions to get some background and about your issue at hand and this might involve checking body heat, looking at your tongue, checking the pulse etc, before they decide on the type and style of massage that will be suitable to correct the problem.
The oriental forms of massage will go on the belief that the mind and body are completely connected as one and therefore changes in one will bring about changes in the other. They will use a variety of techniques such as acupressure, meridian massage and things like aromatherapy in terms of the treatment to cure these issues.
One of the latest oriental techniques to break onto the scene is nuru massage which is now commonplace in many other parts of the world other than where it originated in Japan. Many countries in Europe and the West have embraced this type of technique now and so getting a erotic nuru massage is something very common these days, just as much as something like Thai massage which do seem to be growing in popularity more than some of the more traditional techniques. Although with the erotic therapies tantric massage london does seem to still come out on top in most cases.
