by Isabelle Deslauriers 0 Comments

Since the beginning of Désirables, we believe that massage is one the best way to (re)connect with your partner. The discovery of every inch of your partner’s body, the different sensations created by the hands, lips, tongue and by temperature fluctuations and textures… Massage is the perfect tool to relax, forget your worries and reconnect with your five senses in order to be present and mindful.


The Power of Touch

Touch is THE first of the five human senses to awaken. Touch is so important that we know for a fact that in order to keep babies healthy you need to touch and hold them. Pioneers in sexology, Masters & Johnson, were already aware of the importance of touch : 

«It bridges the gap of physical individuality which no one escapes by literally establishing a sense of solidarity between two individuals


Whether it's for a relaxing purpose, or as a first step towards something more steamy, massage has a lot of healthy effects either physical or emotional for the person who receives it. The person that gives the massage can also benefit from it by connecting more deeply with his/her partner and finding pleasure in giving pleasure.
