Couples Massage offers 2 clients the opportunity to receive bodywork in the same room on tables side by side.
Couples massage is more than a lovely addition to a romantic date night; it’s a wonderful way to spend a special day together with a friend or family member. Perhaps you have a dear friend, family member, or significant other who has never received bodywork, has reservations about the benefits of massage and is nervous about going alone. Couples massage can be an opportunity to introduce someone you care about to the world of self care. All couples are respected.
Back by popular demand we are offering our therapeutic massage for couples classes. These classes are done in small groups and focus on learning basics tips and tricks that can be practiced at home. All classes are done with clothes on, and focus on pressure points and techniques that are easily adaptable to non-professionals.
Couples Massage Questions
Who receives a Couples Massage?
Any two people who are comfortable receiving massage in the same room are welcome!
What makes it different than a regular massage?
Beyond the bliss of bodywork, receiving massage with a significant other or loved one creates a memorable experience of nurturing, complementary to most any celebration. Your session takes place in much the same way as an individual session, with each therapist matching up with a client and doing an individual intake. Therapists will then leave the room while clients disrobe to their comfort level. Upon returning to the room, LMT’s will check in with respective clients and proceed with the session as scheduled.
When is a good time for a couples massage?
Taking the time to provide space for a shared connection is one of the most generous displays of commitment that a person can offer; the therapists at Body Aware understand and appreciate the responsibility of helping you craft your special time, whether the event is a birthday, holiday, engagement, anniversary, or simply an opportunity to say, “I love you.”
Clients should disrobe to their comfort level. It is acceptable to remove all clothing. Clients undress without the therapist in the room, slip onto the table beneath a sheet and blanket, and remain covered during the entirety of the session. The therapist will only undrape and expose the area(s) of the body on which they are actively working. If a client is more comfortable receiving massage while wearing undergarments, this is also completely acceptable; the client’s comfort is paramount.
WHat is included in the session time??
You should always feel free to express any shift needed to maximize your comfort when receiving massage. The amount of communication you engage in during your massage is always up to you. Be sure to give your practitioner feedback on the amount of pressure you require and which specific areas feel painful or tight. Less conversation can provide more opportunities for deeper relaxation, though it’s not unusual to verbalize certain sensations or memories that may arise.
For those who use massage as preventative care or to manage daily stress, one massage a month may be adequate. Weekly sessions may be desirable if you are receiving massage for injury relief or to address chronic tightness that is interfering with your daily life. There are many people who incorporate massage therapy at least twice a month for optimal therapeutic benefits. Once a month, ideally, and at the very least, seasonally. As often as you would change the oil in your car, give yourself the space for basic maintenance. Double check with your insurance provider to determine whether or not massage is one of your benefits. The mainstream medical model is rapidly recognizing massage as an invaluable tool in disease and illness prevention and as a complement to many protocols and procedures. We are happy to work with your primary healthcare providers to customize a wellness plan that serves your needs, holistically.
