Keep the Romance Alive with a Couples Massage
For most of us, it can be a tricky thing coming up with a creative way to spend the day and keep our romance alive. I mean who hasn’t planned something we thought was romantic on V-day only to have it fizzle into a Yawn Fest in the end. We’ve all been there, done that.
The problem is NOT thinking creatively enough, which is why we need to brainstorm a little and add some spice to our love repertoire, especially for Valentine’s Day. Here are some fresh ideas I found that could possibly help:
Get a side by side Couple’s Massage at Spa Lux. A relaxing foot bath prior to massage, soft music, soft lights, soft drinks… and caressing massage… I promise, it will be a night to remember.
What to expect when you come for a couple’s massage.
A Couple’s Massage is when two people enjoy massage in the same area (usually in one large room with two massage beds and two therapists) . You can expect a few extras with this type of massage, as spas usually do their best to make the experience better. For example, SPA LUX offers a relaxing foot bath in the relaxation lounge before the couple goes into the massage room.
Many spas offer treatments à deux so spa-goers can share a pampering experience with a significant other, but a couple’s massage isn’t just for romantics—mother-daughter duos and best friends may also enjoy side-by-side services.
For couples, this form of massage can offer a double dose of benefits. The tandem treatment invites couples to get a bit closer and reconnect, and it can enhance intimacy and teach each partner how to take care of the other. At SPA LUX you can add an instructional session allowing the couple to get in sync by learning massage techniques on each other with the help of a professional therapist. Pampering and rejuvenating facials, massages, and other treatments in a private day or a full day can make up a whole spa package for couples.
Before you book a Couple’s Massage
Before you and your partner book your appointment, be sure to brush up on your spa etiquette. For many, a couple’s massage may be your significant other’s first visit to the spa. And while a trip to the spa should be a relaxing experience, if it’s your first spa-going encounter, it can be anything but if you don’t know what to expect. To calm those nerves, note the following spa protocol tips:
For many guests, nudity may very well be the most nerve-wracking aspect of spa-going. Bear in mind, though, that maintaining guest modesty is a key priority for most therapists in the U.S. At SPA LUX all licensed therapists will keep normally required draping protocols to make you feel as comfortable as you want.
Male or female therapist?
It’s your call. Spas make every effort to accommodate guest wishes in this regard, but it’s recommended to make advance reservations, particularly during peak hours.
Speak up (if you wish). Couples can feel free to converse during their massage, or stay silent. It’s entirely your preference.
