What can Couples Massage can do for You?
There’s something a little special about couples massage. Giving your partner a full body massage is a treat! It’s a wonderful way of helping them to de-stress after a hard day or simply showing your partner you care. There are obvious benefits to the lucky person on the receiving end of the massage of course, but what about the person giving the massage?
Couples Massage helps to build, rebuild or enhance relationships
Spending time doing something solely for your partner really does show them that you care. Yes, you could give them a gift card for a massage at the spa, but think about how romantic it will be to dim the lights and take care of massage yourself!
A spa or medical massage is therapeutic – it’s relaxing and definitely an experience to enjoy; however, it’s on a massage table with someone who has to keep you at emotional and physical distance to perform a professional service. Couples massage is completely different. You are hands on, massaging in your home or place of complete comfort. There’s no pressure, no judgment and you don’t have to leave after 60 minutes. The relaxing benefits of a massage from someone you know well are easy to receive. There’s no awkwardness so, he or she can dive straight into the feel-good, muscle relieving mood.
Couples Massage helps to Build Trust
Trust is vital to any relationship. Massage is a wonderful way to build, rebuild or enhance the trust bond. If you know your partner well – and we assume you do – you’ll be able to pinpoint the exact moment that your partner lets go and relax and allows the massage to have its way through your loving touch. At that point, they have completely surrendered and trust you totally. This is a very powerful and emotional connection for both partners.
Building trust leads to stronger feelings of intimacy; which in return, helps to reduce stress and it creates desire. Reducing stress has a cumulative effect. It helps protect against medical ailments that develop when stress builds up in the body like cardiovascular disease, autoimmune conditions, weight gain and even IBS.
Couples Massage Improves Intimacy
Couples massage is completely different from a professional treatment; even if, the strokes do the same thing. Of course, there should be a clear distinction. No one wants to get attached to their massage therapist! When you’re experiencing a couple’s massage, it’s a totally different scenario. The intent is to show your partner you can and want to do this for them and you want to be physically close. Intimacy isn’t just a physical thing though. Intimacy is also an emotional and spiritual connection that not every couple can say they have.
Building an intimate connection with someone is good for your overall health. It releases the hormone oxytocin which promotes bonding and also helps to boost your overall well-being. You can nurture the intimate action with your lover just by spending alone time, by just focusing on each other or with a simple touch like, massage. Although massage isn’t the only way to do this of course, it’s a really successful way! Try it – watch as your emotional connection deepens.
Giving a Massage Makes YOU feel good
You can become so wrapped up in giving that massage and making your partner feel good that you don’t have the time to think about day to day stress of your own. The massage pulls the giver in so deep, that they forget the so important, minor irritations of life; to the point, they put all of their frustration to the side. Next thing you know, tension and stress are melting away from the both of you! The giver can become quite absorbed in the act! There’s no denying that giving a massage can feel as good as receiving one as you bond with your lover.
Couples massage sessions give you peace, quiet and alone time where you can tune in to each other’s needs. The act of making your partner feel good reflects on you and you’ll feel more positive about yourself and your relationship. You might even be able to talk your other half into returning the favor J
