Couple’s Massage can be an intimate way to connect with your partner or loved one, but what we’ve discovered is that it can be a bonding experience for non-romantically linked people as well. Often times friend spa days or mother-daughter spa days revolve around this. What can you expect from your couple’s massage and how can it benefit you? We’ll answer those questions below.
Why Are Couples Massages Such a Big Deal?
Well, any time you engage in shared experience with someone, it helps create a tighter bond. Especially when you’re in a situation like this one where tension is eased and stress melts away. If you think of it in terms of conditioning, you’re training your mind to know that when you’re with this person you’re getting a massage with, stress melts away. With longer work weeks and work hours, often times that person is our partner or spouse. The idea of stress melting when you’re in the presence of your partner seems like a healthy thought to hold.
You would probably be surprised by the number of people who have never had a massage. There is still some stigma attached to the practice thanks to shady massage parlors, so those people may never opt to get a massage. There are also people who think they have to get completely naked to have a full body massage. Educating them and inviting them to see if they would consider a massage may make a big difference. If you opted for a couple’s massage, that may provide their mind some ease and make them more comfortable with the idea.
Finally, a couple’s massage can be an amazing way to celebrate someone you love, whether it’s on their birthday, an anniversary, or just any day – because they’re awesome. Training someone to remember their own self-care is a gift that lasts a lifetime.
What Can I Expect From A Couple’s Massage?
A couple’s massage is just as unique as any solo massage. When you call to schedule your appointment, just let our front desk staff know that you would like deep tissue, Himalayan salt stone, or any of our many other types of massages. Let them know there will be two of you and that you’d like to share a room. We have one room in each of our spas dedicated to our couples. Two massage therapists will join you to start your massage after you’re undressed to your comfort level on the massage table. Spa music plays in the background. If you’ve selected our aromatherapy massage, your senses will be totally blissed out. After your session is complete, your therapists will remind you both to drink plenty of water. Our therapists work hard to rid your muscles of toxins that need to be flushed out of your body with water. We advise avoiding alcohol directly after your massage.
