Running out of Valentine’s date ideas? Why not try a couples massage where you both get a massage at the same time? It offers several benefits and here are a few!
Increases Feelings of Affection
According to Stef Safran, dating expert and owner of Chicago matchmaking and social networking service Stef and the City, massages stimulate the release of many feel-good hormones, which boost feelings of intimacy and affection. “Most notably, touch increases oxytocin (otherwise known as the ‘cuddle-chemical’), as well as serotonin and dopamine,” he explains. “So basically, a couple’s massage is pretty much a scientific love potion.” Source: TheFashionSpot
The special shared experience of a couple’s massage allows two people to get to know each other. Some spas include treatments with spiritual or self discovery themes. Talking during the massage will allow two people to catch up and visit. Make sure both partners feel comfortable talking, otherwise one person may be irritated while trying to zone out. Source: Leaf
Two’s Company Means Just About Anybody
Newsflash! There’s no hard and fast rule that says a couples massage has to be strictly for couples. Reserve a dual massage with mom, your boyfriend, or anyone else who might be hesitant about spa-ing—having a treatment for two provides an excellent entry into the world of spa and will help uncertain spa-ers feel at ease; eventually it may even lead them to try other treatments. Body scrub, anyone?
Plus, massage can “be a celebration and exploration of the power of human touch. When you share the experience as mother-daughter, sisters, or even as close friends, you express your personal appreciation for the other person and how grateful you are to have them in your life,” Strohecker continues.
A couples massage also shows the other person that you are comfortable sharing your personal space and feel completely relaxed in their presence, she continues. “In a sense, you are letting your guard down and feeling safe in the [company] of the other.” Source: SpaFinder
