Couples massage: Not your average date night

When you think of date night with your spouse, what comes to mind? If you’re like most couples, the rare time to get to spend together out on the town is probably usually spent going to dinner and a movie. Sound familiar? If so, it might be time to shake things up. If you’re looking for a sensual way to relax and connect with your partner on your next date night, why not try a couple’s massage.

Essentially, a couple’s massage is like a traditional one-person massage but with a few key differences. In couples massage, both partners are massaged side-by-side, with two massage therapist. Many day spas have set up special couples massage rooms that are big enough to comfortably accommodate two massage tables, yet small enough to allow the couple to feel connected in an intimate setting.

There is no one set “style” for couple’s massages. Just as there are with a one-person massage, couples massages can be in any massage, from Swedish massage to deep-tissue massage. In fact, one of the best things about couples massage is that one person can have one kind of massage and the other person can have another, all while relaxing together.

It may seem as though massage is inherently a singular relaxation method, but the goal of couples massage is to create a relaxing shared experience that will bring the couples together. By creating a mutually relaxing experience, a couple’s massage can help a couple drown out the distractions of their daily lives and set the stage for a deeper level of connection and intimacy.

Massage has been shown to help stimulate the release of serotonin and dopamine in the brain. These chemicals have a positive impact on the mood and the body in general, promoting better sleep, reducing blood pressure and reducing depression and stress. In our busy lives, it’s very easy for couples to find themselves simply going through the motions of their relationship, putting themselves on the back burner. Couples massage can help them push away the other responsibilities for a short while and focus only on each other. That can help remind them why they fell in love in the first place, which is something every couple needs from time to time.

Whether you are planning a special anniversary, a birthday, Valentine’s Day or simply a date night out with your spouse, why not nix the movie tickets and opt instead for an appointment at a spa like A couple’s massage may be something that is outside of your usual date-night box, but you won’t regret it. When else can you come away from date night feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, connected, and stress free? Dinner and a movie just can’t do that. And who knows? Putting your loved one in a good mood just might keep the date-night fun going once you get home, too! Make an appointment for a couples massage today.…
