Pretty much every other day
Setting aside special occasions, sometimes it’s nice to just spend an hour or two getting taken care of, and with a friend, this can be twice the fun. Share the contents of each other’s lives, or get ready in style for a night out in town. Who needs a reason to get a massage, anyway?
What are the benefits of couples’ massages?
Depending on who you receive your massage in the company of, there are different benefits to you and your loved ones.
Did you know that when couples (romantic partners, business partners, etc) go to therapy, they are often given homework? This homework can be as simple as spending some quality time alone together, without distractions. A great way to do that is a couples’ massage. By spending time alone together in a room, with no TV, no phone, no iPad, it allows you to appreciate each other’s company. Maybe you can catch up on each other’s day? Or maybe just sit in silence, allowing the massage to relax you, and be comfortable in each others company without distraction.
Massage is a great way to practise mindfulness, which has been scientifically demonstrated to improve wellbeing and overall mood. Sharing this with another will create or strengthen a bond over a shared sense of peace and tranquillity, brining you closer together, whether you are romantically involved, or just looking for some mother-daughter bonding time.
Also for you love birds out there, a couple’s massage is a great way to get your senses tingling. Picture this: a warm relaxing room, with nothing but the sound of each other’s breathing, and the sounds of nature, or of gentle music in the background. The massage oils are perfectly perfumed to bring your senses to life, bringing you to a state of relaxation and at the same time, total and contentment.
You know the best part is? This unadulterated moment of pleasure is one that you shared. It’s a different, and intimate experience that you will be unlikely to forget. It’s an enchanting experience that both of you will walk away from ready to face tomorrow.
