What is a Couples Massage?

A massage is a great way to treat yourself to some self love. It promotes relaxation, healing, stress relief and helps with injury and recovery. A good massage can have lasting benefits that leaves your body healing, circulating blood flow, and improving your overall health even after the massage has finished.

A couple’s massage is a massage for two people that takes place in the same room. It lets you enjoy the benefits of a regular massage in the company of a loved one . There are two separate massage beds side by side with separate massage therapists. At CNY Healing Arts in Syracuse, a typical treatment is an hour long but can also be ninety minutes or thirty minutes. The massages take place in a private room, reserved specifically for you and your partner. The massage therapists coordinate so that the massages start and end at the same time.

An increased bond between partners on a mental and physical level is one benefit of a couples massage. It is also normal for friends or loved ones to get this treatment together. The couples massage creates a safe place for you and your partner, whoever it may be, to relax together.

Benefits of a Couple’s Massage

Couples massages can have significant impact on strengthening the bond between partners. A good massage releases oxytocin, otherwise known as the ‘love hormone’. So, when you get a couple’s massage, love is literally in the air! A couple’s massage can create increased affection towards one another coming from a safe space of calm and ease.

A gift card for a massage or a surprise trip to the spa can be a great idea for special occasions or holiday’s as an alternative to an expensive meal. The benefits of a massage will last longer on you and your partner well past dinner time. You will feel refreshed, connected and brand new after leaving your treatment. In Syracuse, we have beautiful spa amenities such as the aqua terrace, steam showers, dry saunas and a relaxation room that are open to clients at no additional cost. Coming early for your appointment or staying after to enjoy these amenities will give your spa experience an added boost.

Another great benefit of a couple’s massage is that it gives comfort to someone who has never tried massage before and might be reluctant about getting one. Having someone else they know in the room can help make the setting more comfortable. This massage is also great for a partner that might be apprehensive to the idea of being naked in a room with someone other than their partner. Getting massaged together can bring some peace of mind to the idea of it.

Massages help you stay present. It is often hard to be present and in the moment when dealing with life’s stresses. Being able to be present together with a loved one is a great way to let go of the past and stresses of the future. This sense of being present helps partners to reconnect by bringing some mindfulness into their lives together.

Once settled in, the therapists will exit the room leaving you to un-robe and get comfortable on the table in private.

A few moments later they will return and your session will begin. It is up to you and your partner if you would like your treatment to be in silence or if you choose to conversate. The massage therapist will follow your lead.  Your therapist will check in on you throughout the massage asking about the pressure.

After your treatment, your therapists will exit the room leaving you and your partner to re- adjust and get changed back into your robes.
