Couples massage can be a great experience for many different people in many different circumstances. This article will look at the typical service that is offered during a couples massage and the benefits the service can have.
The normal layout for a couples massage is to have two tables facing the same way a few feet apart from each other. It’s a service offered for any two people at one time, whether married, dating, or even just friends. I’d like to make it especially clear that there does not have to be any sensual or erotic feeling with a couples massage, it just refers to having 2 people in the same room getting a massage. At the same time, as I’ll go into a bit more later, there can be an emotional element that some people may be looking for.
Where Can You Get a Couples Massage?
It’s important to note that couples massage aren’t typically considered therapeutic in the vast majority of cases, so you’re unlikely to find any therapy or health care facilities offering this type of massage. Instead look for spas in your area, as most of them except the smallest ones will offer couples massage.
Couples Massage Benefits
While there may not be any therapeutic benefits usually, there still are some very interesting things that a couples massage can offer
First of all, it’s extremely relaxing, like any other type of classic massage. This has obvious benefits like stress relief, and in certain cases of high stress individuals could be considered a therapeutic benefit.
Secondly, it’s a good way to convince someone who is apprehensive about massage to try it out. Massages can be a great tool to improve your life, but some people are uncomfortable about them initially, mainly due to feeling vulnerable. With a couples massage you can be with your partner the whole time to provide re-assurance and support, and in general just to raise the comfort level.
Last but not least it can be a bond building experience with a loved one. It’s a pleasant activity you can share with each other while at your most vulnerable, in other words it’s a great way to connect.
Cost of Couples Massage
A couples massage is considered a luxury and as a result typically costs more than your typical massage. At most spas you are looking at about $200 as a minimum per hour and then there is usually a tip included on top if it was well done. If you can afford this, great, if not look for deals when you can or make it a special occasion once in a while on vacation.
