What are the benefits of having a Couple’s massage?
Massages are a wonderful way to unwind and melt stress away, help recuperate an injury, get relief from pain, lower blood pressure and much more. Many positive benefits both physically and mentally are provided by a side by side massage. The service takes place in the same room, at the same time, with two different therapists. Research proved that having a massage with a partner helps to bring people closer, to relax and reconnect with the one they love the most. Massages release oxytocin which is also called ‘the love hormone’. In addition, Couples Massages allows couples to escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life, and to focus on enjoying the moment and relaxing with each other. Here are some of the benefits that partners can get from a couple’s massage.
1. Relieve Stress
Just like oxytocin, the body also releases serotonin and dopamine during a massage. These chemicals increase feelings of affection, wellbeing, and calmness. Massage does not only improve your mood, but it can also aid drop stress and encourage thoughtful conversations with your partner.
While massages release tension from our muscles it also helps to release toxins from the body and encourage serotonin production. Every human being has a happy hormone which is called a Serotonin which helps us enjoy the massage, increases intimacy in couples, happiness, calmness, and pleasure both during massage therapy and after. These added feelings of affection and wellbeing will improve your relationship and encourage not only intimacy but a deeper connection.
3. Spending Quality Time Together
Although it is always great to spend time with your other half, date night can become a bit boring and repetitive. There are only so many places to eat or films to see at the cinema. Try something different and treat yourselves to a relaxing massage together in a couple’s massage room. Trying a new activity and sharing new experiences together with your partner will strengthen your bond as a couple. We know the average couple today has far too many things written into their diaries to feel like they can fit in a Couples Massage. But luckily, New Dawn Spa offers a fifty-minute Couples Massage leaving you without an excuse to avoid spending time with your partner.
4. Mind Your Minds
Massages have been proven to have many physical benefits but can also improve your mental wellbeing. Massages can help to relieve anxiety and stress and give you some headspace, away from your busy lives. Mindful and thoughtful conversations between couples can encourage by being fully relaxed and stress-free. A massage also permits the lines of communication to open up further.
5. Time Alone
It is often hard to find time to spend alone together without the pressures of finances, family life and busy work schedules. Luckily our couple’s massages don’t require time off work or an overnight stay. Make time for your partner and your relationship by taking just sixty minutes out of your busy lives to spend together. Spending this quality time together and sharing this new experience will give you time away from your family to concentrate solely on yourself and your partner, strengthening your friendship and relationship.
6. Become more comfortable
When you go for a massage you will need to undress down to your underwear and be covered with just a towel. You then leave your body in the hands of our professional and qualified massage therapists. This can raise your awareness of your body and what you like and dislike. For example, you may find a back massage very relaxing but a foot massage too sensitive. Becoming more comfortable with your body makes you more relaxed.
It’s good and nice to have a massage together with your partner. There are many benefits that are associated with a couple’s massage including bonding. Stay tuned on Newdawn Spa for more healthy and educative articles.
