Couples Massage Bring Couples CloserAuthor: Massage Heights
Valentine's Day is just around the corner and if you have a significant other, you're probably scrambling to find the perfect romantic gift for your darling. Why not give a gift that you both can enjoy? While love is something that should be acknowledged and appreciated daily, what better excuse than Valentine’s Day to request a reservation for a couples massage for you and your sweetie.
A couple’s massage can provide health benefits in addition to the romantic aspect of massage: relief from stress and pain, relaxation and long lasting effects for personal well-being. Can you think of a better way to enjoy quality time with your partner?
Typically a couple’s massage takes place in a room that is large enough to accommodate side-by-side massage tables so that two Massage Therapists will work on the couple simultaneously. Unlike traditional massages that are done solo, couples treatments allow Guests to experience massage with someone they know. This familiarity provides comfort to first-timers who may initially be hesitant about the process. Having a partner in the room makes the session much less intimidating and allows the Guests to relax more fully.
Not only do couples massage provide the benefits of traditional massage (such as improved circulation, boosted immune system, reduced pain and stabilized blood pressure), couples massages are shown to allow couples to bond on a deeper level.
Massages allow couples to reconnect by being fully engaged in an activity together. Guests may use the session to catch up and chat, or they may simply relax and enjoy their experience united in comfortable silence. Even when words are not spoken, the experience brings couples closer together.
If you have never tried a couple’s massage, you should. Studies show that partners who continue inject new activities into their relationship have closer, more rewarding bonds. If you have tried a couple’s massage, you know the boosted feelings of intimacy and affection that come with massage. Human touch releases oxytocin, the “cuddle chemical,” as well as other “feel-good” hormones such as serotonin and dopamine.
