Couples Massage

What is a Couples Massage?

During a couples massage, two people are receiving massages in the same room with two different therapists. Generally both people are getting the same type of massage, which can range from Swedish to deep tissue to hot stone. There aren’t any hard and fast rules on talking: the couple can talk to each other during the massage session, or if they agree, can just be quiet and relax.

What should I expect during the massage?

A couples massage is often equated with relaxation. The therapists will use various massage techniniques, from Swedish to deep tissue to hot stones, and will focus primarily on working out tension in the neck, shoulders, and back.

There are typically two massage tables next to each other, and each person has their own therapist. Both people will be undressed (underwear is optional), but a sheet or towe. always covers the parts of the body not being massaged.

What are the main benefits of a couples massage?

  1. Similar to a personal massage, a couples massage focuses on relaxation and stress reduction.

  2. Some people may prefer to be massaged with their friend or partner in the room. This may help them feel more comfortable and allow them to find relaxation faster.

  3. It’s a great date activity. A couples massage is a great way to relax and unwind together. A couples massage can be romantic, and is a popular gift for Valentine’s Day, birthdays, or anniversaries.

What should I know before getting a couples massage?

Most couples massages are performed while partially disrobed, although a towel is used to cover up most of the body. Make sure you and your partner are comfortable with this.

Also, some people who regularly undergo massage sessions may find that sharing a room is a distraction of their space and would rather have massage sessions on their own.

Is a Couples Massage for couples only?

No. While couples massages are considered a great date activity, any two people can share a couples massage. It can be a fun way to catch up with friends and family while also being pampered by a massage.
