Couples massage is one of those relaxing and rejuvenating things you can do while on a romantic holiday or a well-deserved treat for you and your loved one. Although the name may suggest that it is for couples, it is not limited to them alone; friends and family are welcome to enjoy this experience too.
Hotels, massage parlors and spas are among the various places you can find couples massage. The rooms in which the couples massages are held consist of two massage beds. If the massage is meant for romantic couples, extra features such as dim lighting and scented candles are added. During the session, each person will have their own massage therapist to attend to his/her needs. This helps save on time as the experience is offered simultaneously.
Attending a couples massage therapy session with a partner helps in easing their nerves, especially if it is their first massage session. Couples massage also provides a way for a couple to bond and spend quality time together. This helps improve the quality of the relationship.
For most couples, couples massage is intended to provide relaxation and not necessarily to heal an injury. The most popular type of massage is the Swedish massage and is the one that is most commonly used in couple’s sessions. Other types of massages such as water shiatsu, can also be used although they are still relatively unknown. Water shiatsu is a form of massage that involves the spraying of water jets in a pool or shallow tub. The water jets hit the body in different places and at varying forces.
There are various advantages that you can experience should you choose to go for couples massage. Massage has been noted to reduce the recovery period from various forms of illnesses. Some of the conditions that have been shown to improve with the help of massages are insomnia, depression, musculo-skeletal disorders, asthma, fibromyalgia and arthritis. Research has also proven that massage reduces stress as well as helps in strengthening the immune system.
Before you indulge in couples massage, there are a few factors you need to look out for. The spa or parlor you choose should employ licensed massage therapists only. The American Massage Therapists Association has a free online database from which you can check if the massage therapist who has been assigned to you is licensed. The AMTA also includes a toll-free number you can call. The massage therapist assigned to you should comply with state or local regulations associated with massages. This will help ensure that you will experience a professional massage therapist. If you want a specific type of massage you should ask whether your massage therapist has any experience in that particular area.
