Relationship Benefits of Couples Massage

We’ve all had those days where we have a sore shoulder or back and you ask your spouse to give you a little massage.  Which is great and all but not like getting a massage from a professional.

Today we’re going to talk about some of the benefits of you and your spouse getting massages together.

So lets get started shall we!


Helps You Reconnect

In today’s world it can be hard to find time to spend with your spouse or if you do find time you spend it worrying about the kids or things you need to get done.  Massage allows you to relax and forget about the hustle and bustle and be in the moment.  The practice of being fully engaged in an activity with one another helps the couple reconnect with little effort and can bring some kind of mindful awareness outside of the massage.


Increases Feelings of Affection

According to Stef Safran, dating expert and owner of Chicago matchmaking and social networking service Stef and the City, massages stimulate the release of many feel-good hormones, which boost feelings of intimacy and affection. “Most notably, touch increases oxytocin (otherwise known as the ‘cuddle-chemical’), as well as serotonin and dopamine,” he explains. “So basically, a couple’s massage is pretty much a scientific love potion.”

Can Make You A Little Frisky

Massage stops just short of an orgasm leaving you hovering on the brink and ready for your spouse to complete the act.

When you get home of course…

Encourages Bonding

Couples who get massages together have shown to have closer bonds.

Couples therapist Dr. Holly Cox of Lotus Therapy Center in Raleigh, NC. said, “I think couples massage, for couples in which both partners find the idea interesting, can offer an avenue to that shared adventure.”
