So you’re ready to book your first couples massage. You heard that teaming up with your partner can bring you closer, making it a fun and relaxing time for you both. However, couples massages have also shown to stimulate the bond between two partners because they’re engaging in an activity that is both relaxing and connective, involving mind, body and spirit. Here are three reasons to book your next couples massage.
You may already know some of the benefits of getting a massage. Whether it’s a full-body massage or just a neck and shoulders massage, if you’ve had one, you know the relaxing results that accompany them. Massage therapy is a wonder if it’s own, helping you stretch and keep your skin pliable, as well as pushing a fresh supply of blood through your whole body to improve circulation and alertness. Massage helps lower the heart rate and blood pressure by increasing relaxation and reducing stress. Couples massages, especially done together, can help you understand one another a little better, too. When both of you have worked long hours at two separate jobs, you may not know the full extent of the stress the other has. Be it a physically involved job or sedentary, when you book a massage together, this type of bonding can open up conversation about where the tension and struggle lies in your partner. Couples massages are a great way to get to know your own body, too, and to find the root cause of pain and muscle soreness as you relieve that pain.
Whether we like it or not, our days can be filled with plenty of stress from work, play, raising children, and then some. It’s even stressful trying to find the time to book a relaxing spa day for yourself! Booking a couples massage together gives you both the excuse to have a private getaway while spending time together and connecting outside of the stress of your work week.
Trying something new doesn’t have to cause apprehension. In fact, it can become one of your favorite things to do after you go out to dinner or as a romantic evening together. It can be a new way of bonding, as you’ll be sharing your experience. When you book a couples massage in Westminster, you’ll step out of your comfort zone and get to know one another in a whole new way.
If massages weren’t stress-reducing enough, spending that quality time together in a couples massage, encourages meaningful conversation and a sense of calmness and well-being that promotes affection towards one another. Because massage in itself releases dopamine and serotonin, the “love”hormones, you’ll both experience this together in a way that makes it a memorable and a stressless event.
How Does a Couples Massage Work?
There are many types of couples massage to choose from. Depending on what you and your partner would like, you can choose between a Swedish, Thai, or deep tissue massage. You may prefer a Swedish massage, while your partner may enjoy a deeper massage technique. A couples massage Westminster getaway would include one relaxing room with a low light setting and possibly aromatherapy. You’ll have two expert massage therapists who set up two separate tables side by side. These therapists will administer the massage technique of your preference. Your couples massage can include extra amenities, too, such as mud baths or a spa treatment. You could even create a romantic getaway that would include champagne and chocolates.
