If you are in a relationship, regardless of length, you have likely found yourself at some point pondering some interesting date ideas. Sure, the tried and tested dinner and a movie routine has its perks, but can certainly get old after awhile. So how about a couple’s massage?
That term can bring a variety of images and ideas to one’s mind, and may even seem a bit intimidating to some. The truth is, couple’s massages are a great date idea, one that provides plenty of added benefits that you can’t get from other activities. Read on if you need a little convincing as to why this is.
What’s a Couple’s Massage?
Couple’s massages exist in a broad range of formats and settings, but the bare bones definition is any massage involving you and your partner, both in the same room or area, or being attended to by your massage therapist at the same time. Some couple’s massages can involve mood settings, candles, and music, and can be more of a package experience that includes spa time together before and after.
A couples massage typically involves you and your partner arriving to the location, where you are then left to undress in private. After doing so, you and your partner each lay down on a table, where you are then provided massages from your therapist. Once the massage is over, you are then given privacy to get dressed, and then either leave or move to a private spa area to relax for a bit longer.
Why Make it a Date?
First off, if you’ve never had a massage together, then getting a couple’s massage means engaging in a new experience with each other. New experiences in a relationship help to spice things up and make your dates exciting. If your dates have become somewhat dull and repetitive, a couple’s massage could offer the perfect solution to break from the mold a bit and try something new and exciting.
Couple’s massages can be a date in and of themselves, or as part of a full romantic evening. They can be as simple as scheduling one during the day when you are both available, or as part of a long and special evening planned well ahead of time. Either way, you’ll both love it.
Unique Benefits of a Couple’s Massage for Dates
Couple’s massages offer plenty of perks that other dates don’t. First off, you are getting a massage after all. Whether alone or with your partner, the general benefits are the same. Relaxation, relief from stress, relief from muscle and tension — these are all reasons people get massages in the first place. Adding relaxation therapy can set help set a peaceful ambience so that couples can better connect.
If you’ve both been stressed lately, or dealing with discomforts during the day, the action of having your pain and stresses relieved together can actually be a rewarding bonding experience, with each of you experiencing mutual benefits. This is especially helpful if you both have been experiencing stresses both inside and outside of your relationship as of late. Massages allow both of you to simply focus on the present moment, as opposed to any past incidents or future stresses looming. Again, this can be very beneficial to your relationship, putting you both on the same level and offering a mutual understanding of the moment.
Enjoying the Moment Together
Couple’s massages also offer you and your partner a unique opportunity to share some alone time or even a bottle of wine. You might not have much to say during the actual massage, (it’s very common to remain totally quiet throughout), but being alone together during what is definitely a sort of intimate experience provides you both with quality time together that you wouldn’t be able to achieve out at some noisy bar or restaurant. After the massage, you and your partner will both be incredibly relaxed, refreshed, and rejuvenated.
Couple’s massages have also been known to help increase sex drive, as the massage helps to release endorphins and dopamine into the system, which can really help to set the mood for later. The massage itself might be just what the both of you need to really spice things up. If this isn’t an issue, be prepared for even better sensual times together.
