Romantic couples massage makes a wonderful gift. The gift might be for a big event like a wedding or anniversary. It might be a gesture of thanks for an entertaining event or help during an emergency. It might be a reminder that, even with the arrival of a new baby or with the departure of a new graduate, time spent together is still important.
Both partners might want the same type of massage. Or one might like harder pressure, while the other prefers something a little softer. At East Shore Massage, our professional therapists will discuss massage options with you before starting your session so they know exactly what you want from your experience.
There are numerous choices available for a romantic couples massage, but some of the most popular include:
Swedish Massage* — the most common massage in America features light to medium pressure to promote flexibility and relaxation through gentle movements that correspond to the grain of your muscles.
Hot Stone* — decreases muscle spasms and encourages deeper muscle relaxation with smooth, heated stones placed in key areas on your body (1-½ hour session).
For couples with busy, stressful lives or with a love of exercise, it might be more enjoyable to request a massage that focuses not only on feeling more relaxed, but also on relieving sore muscles:
Sports Massage Therapy* — decreases muscle soreness before and after any type of exercise, and can be focused on a particular area of your body.
Deep Tissue Massage Therapy* — features deeper pressure across the grain of your muscles in order to break up knots and tissue adhesion that may create stiffness or pain.
Trigger Point Therapy* — addresses areas that receive referred sensations from a stressed part of the body, and often decreases pain after just one session.
Enhancing the Romance
A romantic Couples Massage can easily be upgraded with the addition of Aroma Therapy. While each of the blends offered at East Shore Massage has its own therapeutic purpose, requesting one of these Enhanced Therapies* can make your getaway more memorable.
Aroma Therapy uses essential oils extracted from herbs, flowers and fruits to naturally enhance well-being. You can choose from four beneficial blends to be added on the day of your massage:
Lavender Garden* — promotes restful sleep and calms the mind as well as reducing inflammation.
Mint & Rosemary* — increases circulation and enlivens both the mind and body.
Anxiety Release* — eases irritability, apprehension or nervousness to make relaxation easier.
Aches & Pains* — helps aid tissue recovery and decrease pain while also promoting circulation .
After the Massage
Most people feel so relaxed when their massage is finished that it’s a good idea to avoid scheduling any stressful work for another few hours. However, since East Shore Massage is open late, nights and weekends all year long, it’s easy to find time for a romantic Couples Massage that fits with your plans.
