Why It’s a Great Gift for You and For your Partner
Therapeutic massage has so many wonderful benefits and the same can be said for couples massage. It can be something you give as a gift or even do for a date. So just what can you expect from a couples massage session and what are all the great benefits? Let’s dive into those answers.
What to Expect
Couples massage is much the same as getting a message on your own; we offer the same customized service, however, you will be able to enjoy a massage next to your loved one. With each massage therapy session, we utilize relaxing aromatherapy to reduce tension and improve clarity. With each session, you have the added benefit of incorporating one of our specialities including:
- Heated Deep Tissue Bamboo
- AromaTouch Technique
- Myofascial Release
- Hot Stone
Now that we’ve gone over some of the basics of what you can expect, let’s take a look at some of the amazing benefits of couples massage.
The Gift for Someone Who Has Everything
Sometimes it can be hard to find just the right gift for your other half, whether it’s because they already have everything or maybe you’re trying to mix up your gift-giving game. Couples massage allows you to do something new together or offers the relaxing mental shut off that you’ve both been waiting for.
The Gift of Self-Care
We’ve all been hearing about self-care a lot over the past couple of years and there is a reason why. It is too often that we put taking care of ourselves on the back burner. This can lead to stress, anxiety, fatigue, muscle tension, pain, and so much more. By taking the opportunity to get a massage together or even just considering it as a gift, you will be giving the gift of stress relief and relaxation. The physical benefits of massage therapy include reducing pain, improving circulation, improving immune function, and lowering heart rate and blood pressure, not to mention all of the emotional benefits. What a stellar gift idea!
The Benefits of Couples Massage
While getting a massage on your own is great, there are some specific benefits to couples massage therapy. One of those benefits is being able to enjoy some quality time together. It’s like a mini vacation from the stresses of work and life with your partner. It also gives you the opportunity to reconnect. Sometimes life gets in the way but with a couples massage, you and your loved one can focus on the here and now. A couples massage session is a great bonding experience for you and your other half. Not everyone can afford to go on a vacation but a spa day is easier on the wallet, not to mention that it is an experience that you will end up talking about for weeks.
Couples massage is also very intimate. The hormones released during the session stimulates the social hormones of dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin. During the session, these hormones work to lift your mood and even increase your affection toward your partner on an emotional level. It can also work on a physical level as you are more likely to enjoy more intimacy together after the massage than you would have before the session.
The Benefits of Routine Treatment
Finally, there is something to be said for having something to look forward to. Routine couples massage therapy sessions give you the ability to look forward to something together, which encourages that bonding experience. It can also extend the benefits of massage therapy, helping to keep your stress and anxiety levels lower overall and your body feeling more limber and pain free.
