Two’s company: why couples massage could be for you
Want to say thank you, congratulations, or simply I love you? Rather than send a card and a bunch of flowers, think about booking a couples massage. It could be a way to reconnect or share something special with your partner, a fun way to spend some quality time with your best friend, or a way to show your mum just how much you appreciate her. It’s also a great way to experience massage for the first time, as you’ll be comforted by the presence of someone you love right next to you throughout the treatment.
Why have a couples massage?
Part of the enjoyment of life’s pleasures is sharing them with loved ones so it makes sense to share in the unforgettable experience of a blissful, relaxing, indulgent massage with a partner, friend or your mum. Each of you will lie on your own massage bed, with your own therapist attending to you but with the knowledge that the other is close by, sharing in the same wonderful experience.
A mother-daughter massage is the perfect way to spend some quality time with your mum, as a mother’s day present, birthday present, some pre-wedding pampering, or just to say thanks to her for being such a great mum. Couples massage packages that incorporate massage and manicures or pedicures are ideal for mums and daughters or friends.
A couples massage with your partner can be a wonderful way to reconnect with each other. Aromatherapy, soft music and ambient lighting create the perfect romantic atmosphere and will totally relax your bodies and minds. Whether you talk during the session or use the massage as rare quiet time, a couples massage can be a great way to hide yourselves away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life – work, family, events – and indulge in some shared time á deux.
Tips to make the most of your couples massage
To ensure you both get what you want from the massage, before it starts it is a good idea to discuss with your partner, friend or relative whether you want to talk during the session or stay quiet. It is also important that you make room in your home or hotel room for two massage beds, with space for the therapists to walk around them. Switching off mobile phones and, if at home, taking your phones off the hook and ensuring no-one rings your doorbell, is also essential to gain the most from your massage.
