What is a Couples Massage and What Can I Expect?

A couples massage is similar to other massage therapy experiences, except you and your partner get the massages simultaneously, on independent tables, and also by not one but two distinct massage therapy practitioners. The couples massage therapy is normally provided inside an exclusive area on side-by-side massage tables.

Typically, both of you will get a preliminary assessment together with the masseuse before any treatment options to examine your treatment objectives and answer any questions you may have. Then, the specialist leaves the area for a small amount of time as you and your massage companion lay down on the massage therapy tables, with linens covering your body.

Here are some of the most popular couples massages:

  • Swedish massage – uses gentle and relaxing strokes that are great for beginners
  • Hot Stone massage – uses hot stones in conjunction with Swedish massage
  • Aromatherapy massage – uses special oils with mood soothing scents such has Lemongrass or Lavender in conjunction with muscle therapy
  • Deep Tissue massage – uses pressure to target deeper layers of muscle tissue
  • Prenatal massage – a unique experience couples can share and celebrate together that takes into account a woman’s body during pregnancy

Can I Wear Clothing While Getting a Couples Massage?

A couples massage is a full-body massage and will usually require removal of clothing. Talk to your massage therapist and they can give you guidance according to what you’re comfortable with. It is fine to keep undergarments on if you’re not comfortable being completely nude.

Does Couples Massage Include Other Features?

When reserved inside a full service day spa, a couples massage therapy can consist of access to private suites, steam rooms, relaxing open areas, health treatments, as well as other great day spa facilities. Experience some unique features of couples massage including sparkling wine, sweets, fresh fruit, or a lunch or dinner. These additional perks may be offered as part of the couples massage package you reserved.
