What is a couples massage

It’s a massage experience for two that has real benefits, for physical, mental, and relationship health. Ultimately, a couples massage is a shared experience – a massage for two people, at the same time, in the same private room, but on two separate massage tables and performed by two massage therapists. The massage therapists will start at the same time and coordinate the treatment for the couple.

A couples massage can be a great way to enhance the mental and physical benefits of the massage experience. While it’s common to choose a couples massage as part of a day of romance – let’s say, with a spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend – it’s also normal to opt for this treatment with a friend or other loved one.

Getting a couples massage is an increasingly popular way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, or the Presidents’ Day holiday weekend. At Body Joints Therapeutic Massage we offer an additional special twist on the couples massage. Instead of trying to make reservations for a spa experience at a time that works for both of you, we bring the massage experience home, or to a hotel room – just the two of you, in your own personal space. Even better, the tip is included in the price, so there’s no need to disrupt the post-massage bonding bliss by looking for your wallet.

Tips for creating a great couples massage experience at home

So let’s say you’re planning your romantic day at home. And you’ve decided on a couples massage. What should you do to make the most of your experience?

Get food and drink delivered

A massage is an incredible way to relax, reduce stress, and, in a couples massage, bond. Complete your private haven by either stocking up on delicious treats and beverages beforehand, or having a meal delivered to you. (If you’re not on an unlimited budget, home delivery will help you save on price as well.) If you’re wondering whether you should eat and drink before or after your couples massage, we recommend you indulge in the food and (especially) drinks after your massage.

Choose the right space

Choose a private room that has room for both the massage tables (Body Joints Therapeutic Massage, therapists bring tables and massage supplies) as well as enough room for the therapists to move. A space of about 10 by 12 feet should be more than sufficient.

As you will be lightly dressed during your massage, if you have control over the room heat, you may wish to raise the temperature a few degrees. Close windows as necessary.


Set the mood

You will have your eyes closed for most of the massage, but having a bright overhead light can still be disruptive. Turn off overhead lights – if you have dimmers, dim the light in the room about halfway. We will bring our own music to the massage, but you may certainly play your own if you wish. It’s useful to let the therapists know where outlets are, if necessary. Some scents can help you relax, like lavender and vanilla. If you have a scented candle or diffuser you’ve been wanting to try out, now is the chance.
