What is the point of a couples massage?
Most couples struggle with making time in their very busy schedules to spend quality time together, and a couples massage can be a purposeful and intentional reconnection. Massage therapy can help increase feelings of affection and intimacy by releasing oxytocin, serotonin, and dopamine in the body.
What does a couples massage include?
It’s a massage experience for two that has real benefits, for physical, mental, and relationship health. Ultimately, a couples massage is a shared experience – a massage for two people, at the same time, in the same private room, but on two separate massage tables and performed by two massage therapists.
What should I expect from my first couples massage?
When booked in a full-service spa a couple’s massage will typically include access to showers, hot tubs, lounging areas, and other spa amenities. Many couple’s massage treatments may offer special amenities such as champagne, chocolates, and fruit.
Is a couples massage awkward?
Nothing is more awkward than one when a guest receiving a couple’s massage stares (or in some cases, glares) at the therapist providing a service to his or her significant other. This makes us incredibly uncomfortable and self conscious.
Should I shave before getting a massage?
Should I shave my legs before my massage or body treatment? Shaving is recommended but please be sure to do so no less than four hours prior to your scheduled appointment. Certain products may irritate newly-shaven skin.

What happens during a massage?
In all massages, the therapist lubricates the skin with massage oil and performs various massage strokes that warm and work muscle tissue, releasing tension and breaking up muscle “knots” or adhered tissues, called adhesions. This promotes relaxation, eases muscle tension, and creates other health benefits.
What is a tandem massage?
