A couple’s massage allows partners to experience a massage together in the same area as one therapist works on each person. This treatment invites couples to get closer and reconnect, and it can enhance intimacy and teach each partner how to take care of the other. Every individual has personal needs and goals for massage. During a couple’s session, both clients can receive unique treatments that address their specific needs. This is a great way to introduce a partner who has never gotten a massage before in a way that makes them feel more comfortable the first time. Having a partner in the room makes the session less intimidating and allows the clients to relax more fully. Many clients are also uneasy about undressing but are more comfortable in the presence of a friend or other partner. Although couples massage can certainly be romantic, there’s no rule that says a couple’s massage has to be strictly for couples. The couple can be a husband and wife, girlfriend and boyfriend, same-sex partners, moms, and daughters, or best friends. Massage can reduce stress and muscle tension, improve circulation, eliminate stiffness and soreness, boost the immune system, reduce pain and help control one's blood pressure. Couples who strive to practice a healthy lifestyle can enjoy these benefits and more together.
