It's well established receiving a massage provides numerous self-care benefits, and the same holds true when you're a couple. During a couples massage, each partner receives a full body massage from their own masseuse, simultaneously. You both experience a healing and rejuvenating treatment, with the added value of enjoying a shared experience. In several ways, a relationship too may benefit from a couples massage.
While the relationship benefits of a couples massage mostly have to do with the shared, simultaneous activity, all the healthful benefits that come with an individual massage still apply. A therapeutic massage increases circulation, boosts the immune system, rehabs strained muscles, promotes healing, and induces a state of relaxation. All of these things bring about overall improved health that may be felt for days afterward. When both partners in a relationship are healthy, and relaxed, and feel taken care of, the relationship itself becomes stronger as a result.
