What are the Benefits of a Couples Massage? - Affordable Massage in Jacksonville, FL
Besides alleviating pain, healing injuries and lowering stress levels, massage also releases the “feel good” chemicals of oxytocin, serotonin and dopamine. These are the hormones that promote bonding and feelings of affection and intimacy. A couples massage is a great way for two people to experience these physical and mental benefits while spending quality time together. A couple may choose to use this time to chat and catch up with each other or to simply relax. Either way, this shared experience can increase individual well-being while strengthening the bond of the relationship.
What Exactly to Expect with Couples Massage
Before the session, each person will consult individually with the therapist who will be performing his or her massage. This will allow for the session to be customized for each person’s physical concerns and preferences. The couples massage will take place in one large room with two beds set up. Couples may choose the session to be one hour, ninety minutes or two hours in duration. They can also choose to include hot stones, cupping and/or aromatherapy in their treatment.
Not Just for Romantic Partners
While a couples massage is often seen as an activity for romantic partners, it can also be a great activity for friends or family members who want to try a new activity together. For those who may be intimidated by an individual massage session, having a couples massage with someone they know can provide a level of comfort and security.
So, if you’re looking for a gift idea or simply want to relax with someone you care about, why not try a couples massage?
