February is right around the corner and we have found one of the most requested services is a couple’s massage for Valentine’s Day. We also have a lot of questions from people who have never received a couple’s massage about what to expect – we’ve tried to answer the most frequent questions.
What is a couples massage?
Couples massage is one of the hottest services in the massage industry right now. Two people are massaged in the same room, at the same time, by two different therapists. It can be a husband and wife, girlfriend and boyfriend, same-sex partners, or even moms and daughters sometimes or best friends.
What Happens During Couples Massage?
A Couples massage is a massage that takes place in a large comfortable room that can accommodate the two massage tables. As for couples massage etiquette, it’s fine to talk to each other through the massage if you want, or be quiet the whole time. It’s really up to you.
What Are the Benefits of Couples Massage?
Couples massage is a great way to introduce a partner who has never gotten a massage before in a way that makes them feel more comfortable the first time. Some men are apprehensive about getting a massage because of the undressing involved, and to have their wife or girlfriend there is reassuring.
Men usually discover that therapeutic touch is very relaxing and restorative. Once they experience a couples massage, they are more willing to book a massage on their own.
It can also be a good choice if you’re traveling with someone you don’t get to see often enough — a sister, girlfriend, mom or best friends — and you want to spend as much time together as possible.
Is There Any Downside To Couples Massage?
Some experienced clients find it distracting to be in the same room at the same time with anyone else during a massage. They prefer to get their massage alone and then meet up afterwards.
The potential problems come if you have different expectations and needs during a massage, particularly if one person wants to zone out and the other likes to talk.
It helps if you know how much the other person likes to talk during a massage — a lot, a little, or not at all — and whether it’s a good match for you.
