Couples massage is a massage that takes place in a couple’s suite. At the very least this is a room large enough for two massage tables. Our spa has amenities for couples, including steam showers, spa baths and a large relaxation room where you can relax together before and after your treatments.
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 nudity 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 wanting to hang out 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 spa-goers 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.
