What to Expect at a Couples Massage

If you’ve never had a couples massage, you probably have questions. We, fortunately, have the answers.

 

What is a couples massage, exactly?

Put simply, two people—for example, a romantic couple, best friends, or siblings—go in for a massage session in the same room, side-by-side, each with their own therapist.

 

Does anything else happen?

Some spas include access to other amenities, such as the sauna, pool, or lounge. Other couples massage packages include champagne, for example. It’s always good to get there early, just so you don’t feel rushed.

 

Do we have to get the exact same massage?

Nope. Feel free to ask your therapist to focus on your most tender spots. If you want a soothing Swedish and your partner wants a more-intense deep-tissue, that’s perfectly fine.

 

Can we talk during the massage?

If you really want to, but it’s easier to relax when you’re not trying to chat with each other.

Massage Addiction | Nampa

While most relaxation massages release tension with light to medium pressure, Massage Addiction’s therapists amp them up with acupressure, hot stones, moist heat, and other add-ons. Similarly, a deep-tissue massage integrates several modalities—including neuromuscular therapy and shiatsu pressure—into one session, while athletes find relief during sports massages. Suffice it to say, these therapists have the skills to confront just about any type of muscle pain.

For those of you who want to make massage a regular part of your self-care routine, it would help to know what the difference is between all those massage modalities. Here we take a look at the two most popular so you can determine which is right for you.
