Looking to put some spark in your relationship? Or, do you just need to get both you and your partner less stressed and more relaxed? A couple’s massage may be the answer to both. Here are 5 reasons it’s great for you and your relationship.
1. You’re Not Alone. Maybe you’re a fan of massage and your partner has never been. Or, maybe both of you are trying massage for the first time. Couples massage means you are not going it alone. You’re there with someone you know and that’s going to make you feel comfortable and it’s going to make the whole experience more fun!
2. You’re Sharing And Bonding. It’s a shared adventure and therapists say that doing something different helps create rewarding bonds. Whether you choose to chat or just relax together while the massage unkinks all the tension, sharing an intimate experience is going to bring you closer together and strengthen your bond.
3. You’re Together. Today’s busy schedules make it hard for couples to enjoy time together. Using your massage time as couple’s time may give you both the break you need to reconnect and relax. Massage makes you present in the moment, concentrating on how good you feel. It helps you let go of yesterday’s problems or tomorrow’s busy schedule and just be together.
4. It’s Good For You. Making massage part of your healthy lifestyle just makes good sense. Massage can reduce stress, relax tensions, reduce pain and even lower blood pressure. If you and your partner are trying to make healthy choices together, couple’s massage is one of them.
5. It Increases Feelings Of Affection. You know that’s what you were thinking about – and, yes! Massage stimulates the release of all those feel-good hormones, serotonin and dopamine and that “cuddle hormone” oxytocin. Think of massage as a love potion that has solid science behind it.
When you choose to get a massage, you’re making a healthy choice. When you choose it with your partner, you’re building a stronger bond. To make sure you get all the benefits of your massage by choosing a massage center with an experienced, expert staff. Then, just relax and enjoy.
