In light of Mother’s Day, we thought it the perfect time to spotlight couple’s massage. Spas are boosting their efforts when it comes to catering to duos, and the couple’s massage, which allows two people to enjoy massage in the same room side-by-side as one therapist works on each person, continues to top the list of treatments à deux.
And contrary to popular belief, the couple’s massage isn’t just for sweethearts! While yes, it can be a romantic spa-going experience with your sweetie, it’s also a great way to socialize, bond and share some relaxation time together with your mom, sis, or BFF. Plus, the tandem treatment makes for a stress-free initiation into the spa world for first-time spa-goers, who might find it more relaxing if a friend is with them.
Ask ahead of time to see if your spa offers a couple’s treatment area (sometimes called a dual room). Also, if it is your or your companion’s initial visit to a spa, it may be a good idea to read up on spa etiquette tips so you both feel as comfortable as possible.
