You don’t have to go far from home to have a relaxing and memorable retreat with a loved one. Trying a couples massage at a spa in your hometown can be a fun way to relax with your significant other. As you look into activities for your next stay-cation, here are a few massage therapy options to incorporate into your spa package.
Couples Facial Massage
While your husband or boyfriend may recoil at the idea of a “facial,” a facial massage incorporates the same gentle touch and tissue rejuvenation as a back massage, with the added bonus of leaving your skin feeling clean and refreshed. While there are several anti-aging and anti-discoloration facials available, you can have a couples massage centered on steam massage or aromatherapy for relaxation and self-care.
Full-Body Seaweed Wraps
Seaweed is full of vitamins, minerals, and proteins that enrich, nourish, and detoxify. Seaweed wraps combine kelp with clay, warm water, and essential oils to give your skin a relaxing and nutrient-rich experience. While full-body seaweed wraps are common, you can also do a partial-body seaweed wrap on the arms or legs.
Hot Stone Massage
You may have seen photographs of hot stone massage before, but never tried it yourself. As the name suggests, a masseuse places hot stones on pressure points and areas of tension on the back. Trying it as a couples massage can give you both the chance to try something new and relaxing.
Don’t Forget the Feet!
Many don’t think to add pedicures to their spa day (despite the rise of the manicure) but you and your loved one work on your feet all day, rarely giving them any time for a break. A spa pedicure can include a foot bath, trimming long nails, exfoliating dead skin cells from the heels and sides of the feet, and buffing toenails–nail polish optional. Incorporating a pedicure into your couples massage is a tingly, fun way to finish up your day and gives your poor feet a much-needed break.
A spa day can give your body the love and nurturing that it deserves, and spending a spa day with a loved one can be a simple way to get away from the daily grind. Doing a couples massage is a great way to escape from it all without even having to find a passport or book a flight. What can be better than that?
