Wondering What to Expect At a Couples Massage?

Massage therapy is a great way to reduce stress, alleviate tension, and enter a relaxed state of being that is beneficial to both your body and mind. And it’s also a great experience to share with someone special. 

A couples massage combines the many individual benefits of massage therapy with a unique and customizable experience that can help you strengthen your bond with a loved one.

What does a “couples massage” mean?

A couples massage refers to when you and your guest will lie on side-by-side massage tables while enjoying the massage service of your choice. During this time, two licensed Massage Now therapists in Kingston will coordinate your treatments to ensure you both have the opportunity to relax and enjoy the tranquility of your luxury experience. 

A couples massage can be a fantastic opportunity for romantic partners to share a special moment, but couples massages are not limited to romance. Instead, this spa treatment is designed for any two people who enjoy a positive connection; that includes mothers and daughters, sisters, and friends. 

By that definition, a couples massage means you and someone important to you have the opportunity to enjoy a moment of peaceful existence together—something that isn’t always easy to find.

What can I expect from a couples massage?

During your couples massage, you and your guest will be escorted to a private massage room to enjoy simultaneous massage services. The room will be dimly lit and light, soothing music will be playing in the background. 

Once you’ve each undressed and are on your massage tables, two massage therapists will enter the room and begin your spa treatment.  

Once your massage starts, your experience will depend on the massage service and duration you chose while scheduling your appointment. Generally, each therapist will rub, stroke, or press your muscles, tendons, ligaments, and skin, applying the desired pressure to help you and your guest experience a heightened sense of comfort and wellness.  

At the end of your session, the two massage therapists will leave the room and provide you and your guest with the time to slowly emerge from your relaxed state and get dressed.  

What do I wear to a couples massage?

A couples massage is a journey to comfort for both the body and mind. The clothing you wear to and from your appointment should do just that—make you comfortable. We recommend wearing something light, soft, and comfortable before and after your massage to help you ease into and transition out of your experience. 

What do you wear during your couples massage? This too is based on comfort. Many clients choose to wear underwear during their massage, though some choose to go without. 

Regardless of which you choose, your massage therapist will use a lightweight sheet or blanket to ensure you’re comfortable and appropriately covered for the duration of your experience.

How do you prepare for a couples massage?

There’s no list of pre-massage prep activities, but there are a few things you can do to help ensure your experience is one of joy and tranquility. 

  • Choose a service that works for you and your guest.  Massage preferences can vary from person to person, and choosing a spa trip that you’re both comfortable with can lead to a better individual and combined experience.
  • Consider your schedules.  Life is busy, and sometimes we have little choice other than to run from obligation to obligation. However, if possible, it’s a good idea to schedule your appointment on a day when you have minimal obligations. Massages help you let go of stress and tension and become centered. Allow yourselves the time and space to bask in your enhanced state of wellness. 
  • Avoid heavy meals before your appointment.  A couples massage is a great way to begin or end a day spent with a loved one, and a meal before or after can add to your day. However, it’s a good idea to avoid heavy meals before your appointment. Doing so can help you avoid any unnecessary digestive discomfort that may be associated with a big meal or exacerbated when your therapist applies pressure to certain parts of your body.  
  • Leave your phones behind:  Most of us can’t really leave our phones at home for the day, but silencing your phones and leaving them in your purse or car will allow you and your partner to disconnect from the stressors of the outside world and enjoy quality time together. 
  • Relax. The outside world can be a source of stress, but once you’re inside, your goal should be to let go of the stress and relax. That may also mean that you avoid any potential tension-inducing conversational topics. If possible, consider setting aside some time before your massage to clear your mind and slowly leave behind your concerns and obligations. 

A couples massage is a great way to improve your health, achieve a heightened sense of comfort, and center your minds, bodies, and hearts.
