It’ll bring you closer together

A couple that experiences new things together has a far better chance of having a closer bond than those that don’t. Massages are relaxing, therapeutic and why wouldn’t want to share that with your significant other? Because many spas design their couple treatments with romance in mind, you’re sure to leave the room loving each other even more. According to family and marriage therapist Ester Boykin, during a massage you’re most likely to forget about the past, the future and just live in the moment.

It increase affection and intimacy

Men in particular don’t warm up to the idea of getting naked and being touched by a stranger. However, once the masseuse gets in those tight muscles he’ll forget why he was stressing about it. The fun comes when you try and do the same at home. Whether you’re good at it or not, the thought of you touching him all over will definitely warm the both of you up.

Makes you want to learn

After your sixty minutes of being pampered it’s only natural that you’ll want to do it at home. The great thing about spas is that the professionals will recommend the right oils and tools you’ll need to get the full ‘at home spa’ experience. You can also ask for tips and a short demo too.

It’s good for your health

As much you exercise, eat right and sleep enough for good health, massages are a part of a healthy and balanced life. Booking this for the two of you shows just how much you value not only your relationship, but your overall health. A tension free and relaxed you is the best version of yourself that you can bring to your relationship.

It teaches the art of sharing space

Often couples will complain that they need time apart to get in tune with themselves. Couples massages teache you to be in the same space, but at the same time focusing on your own relaxation.
