You know what they say … couples who massage together, stay together! Getting a massage with our partner is one of our favorite ways to spend Valentine’s Day—or any day of the year. It’s the perfect opportunity to reconnect in a relaxing environment (with added health benefits!) and encourage intimacy. Here are our top four reasons why you should schedule a massage into your Valentine’s Day itinerary:
1. It’s intentional quality time.
Enjoy a relaxing experience with zero stressors or interruptions from your daily life with your partner for an entire 60-90 minutes. You can use this time to chat, or simply relax and soak up the time together. If you haven’t tried a couple’s massage yet, this is the perfect way to try something new together.
2. It’s a bonding experience.
Massages help release feel-good chemicals like oxytocin, serotonin and dopamine. Alongside your partner, the experience can help you feel closer and more connected. For those who feel intimidated to schedule a massage on their own, a massage with your partner offers additional comfort and security.
3. It’s a physical and mental reset.
The physical benefits of a massage are immediate. Not only do massages help you relieve muscle tension and soreness, but achieving a state of deep relaxation can reduce anxiety and stress. The buoyant feeling after a massage can help couples reset and tackle the day with intention.
4. It creates intimacy.
A couple’s massage is a great way to experience intimacy in a new way and increase feelings of affection. Dim lighting, soft music, and relaxing fragrances are staples to a perfect date and help set the mood for the rest of your day.
