Valentines’ Couples Massage

5 Benefits to Couple’s Massage

Couples massage is an increasingly popular way to help couples relax, bond, and enjoy time with each other. As Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, consider couples massage as a nontraditional gift to your partner that has both momentary and lasting benefits to your romantic relationship. Just a massage of 30 minutes or more can have several benefits to you and your partner that both of you will cherish.

Increase Affection

The love and care invoked by seeing your partner’s relaxed face during a couple’s massage provides an enhanced feeling of affection. Through the power of touch, massage stimulates social hormone production, including the release of oxytocin, serotonin, and dopamine in the body, which helps a couple feel more connected, affectionate, and intimate both during the massage and after. Just like when kissing or cuddling, massage stimulates the same type of great chemistry, particularly through the release of the oxytocin chemical. In turn, massage increases the bond between a couple, more so than couples who do not get massages together.

Reconnect

As couples can feel distant due to the demands of work and daily life, it pays to take time out of your busy schedule and reconnect. Invest in massage as a means to rekindle the feeling of living in the moment and appreciating the moment. Getting a massage together for the first time can spark memories of your first date and even your first kiss. A couple’s massage can be your next adventure together, where you draw together to be stronger together to calm any nerves you have about trying something new. The same chemicals that spurn affection also help you feel connected and happy for time beyond the massage.

Enjoy the Present

It’s so easy to be caught up in the past or worried about the future, and it is easy to get stuck in the past as relates to a long-term relationship. However, it is the ‘now’ that is paramount. Massages help you appreciate the moment and want to live in the now. Being fully present helps you engage in the moment with your partner, where that mindful awareness can extend beyond that massage into the daily relationship. So don’t get swept away from outside demands, where treating yourself and your partner to a couple’s massage helps you simply live in the now with your partner, where you and your partner can simply appreciate each other for being together.

Spend Time Together

Rejuvenate your relationship by doing more than eating a meal together or just watching the same television show. Quality time together means no distractions like texting or other mobile alerts, where good old fashioned face-to-face time is everything. Time is the most valuable and precious gift you can share, and a couples massage is devoting your full self to your partner and building your relationship. Take the time to reconnect outside of you and your partner’s busy schedules,

Relieve Stress and Anxiety

Massage releases hormones to the body that relieve stress and tension both temporarily and long term. Naturally, relieving a build up of stress in each partner promotes the quality of the relationship. Massage leads to calmness and hence sets the tone for romance. This ‘escape from reality’ helps you remember what is most important, namely your relationship with your partner, which in turn reduces stress and anxiety. A reduction in stress and anxiety can also promote better sleep for both partners, where massage and a good mattress can do wonders for a relationship. Once your massage is over, you’ll be racing to get home and get back under the sheets (wink, wink).
