Couples Massage

Insights from KurSpa Posted March, 2018 Insights from Kurspa | February 01, 2018

With everyday stresses that couples face such as finances and parenting some couples spend very little time together where they are actually relaxing and letting go of the everyday pressures of life. Having a couples massage can be an opportunity to do just that.

Massage decreases stress hormones such as cortisol and increases endorphins such as serotonin and dopamine which are the body’s natural feel good chemicals.  Having massages side by side and experiencing the feeling of happiness together can strengthen bonds and renew intimacy between two people.
 
Having a massage simultaneously at a spa can be romantic especially in a spa setting where the couples suites can include big luxurious bath tubs for two, candles and even picturesque fireplaces to set the mood. Taking the time to massage one another can be just as romantic and effective without the costs associated with visiting a spa.
 
All the everyday benefits of massage still apply such as;

  •  stress relief
  • increasing circulation
  • improve sleep
  • decrease pain
  • reduce muscle tension
 
However there are added benefits for both the person giving the massage as well as the person receiving the massage. Taking the time to massage your partner is taking time to care for your partner. You are showing both physical affection while massaging them and improving their overall well-being not to mention creating a healthy foundation of touch and relaxation within your relationship.
 
There are many essential oils that can enhance these benefits and are easily incorporated in into your massage via a great aromatherapy massage oil.
 
A favorite of mine is the combination of Jasmine and Ylang Ylang.  At KurSpa we call this the Romance Blend. Jasmine has been commonly used as a natural remedy to help treat symptoms of depression and anxiety as well as to increase both circulation and libido. Ylang Ylang is a natural aphrodisiac and can have a calming and euphoric effect on the body.
 
Lavender and Chamomile are a great addition to couples massage if used at bed time. Together these essential oils are a natural sedative and can decrease anxiety and stress and can help relieve headaches and muscle tension.
 
According to Dr. Krista Ingram essential oils are very powerful therapeutic natural medicines. Essential oils effect the body in two ways. One they work with the olfactory senses stimulating different emotions and two they enter the blood stream creating a physical response in the body.
 
Overall the combination of massage an essential oils is a powerful tool to improve health and wellness and increase relaxation and intimacy between coupes.
