How to Give Your Wife a Back Rub

Save

Your wife had a hard day or you want to set the mood and give her a back rub. But you're not certain how to go about giving her a back rub she'll enjoy.

  • Ask her first. Avoid suddenly starting a back rub unless she wants one. She may want sleep more or may have injured herself during her day, which may make a back rub painful.

  • Have her take her shirt off. Not only is it easier to massage her without a shirt on, but this can help get her into the mood.

  • Start at the shoulders and work your way down. Women don't usually like intense back rubs, so start with a feather light touch and gradually increase the intensity.

  • Place your hands at the sides of the neck and stroke toward the shoulders. After a few minutes, press more firmly into the neck with the thumbs to work out any tension.

  • Use your thumbs to press into the sides of the spine, but avoid pressing directly into the spine. Using your palms, knead the muscles on both sides of the spine.

  • Listen to her. If she comments on a knot in her back muscles, try to work it out. If she says something hurts, stop doing it.

  • Consider using a massage oil or a lotion. Massage oils make it easier to give a massage and some scents are relaxing (such as lavender) while other scents (like jasmine) are more erotic.

Tips & Warnings

  • Alternate firm touches with feather-weight touches.
  • Try rubbing in circles rather than up and down.
  • Avoid using scented massage oil on pregnant and nursing moms without checking with a care provider.
