Valentine's Day: The Benefits Of A Massage Date Night

Valentine's Day: The Benefits Of A Massage Date Night

It’s Date Night! You could choose the tried and true, like dinner out, drinks at a lounge, a movie. Or you could break out of your rut and try something completely different this time. If you are looking for a way to spice things up and connect on a different level consider a couple’s massage. This shared massage experience with your significant other has benefits for your physical, mental, and intimacy health. Strive for a higher level of romance and a new depth to the connection between you and your partner this date night and enjoy the benefits of a couple’s massage.

Re-Ignite The Romance With Massage

Make The Time: The very act of booking a couple’s massage and committing that time to each other is a sign of commitment and a promise to prioritize your relationship. More than sitting at the dinner table together or curling up on the couch for some Netflix, a massage date night is an intentional and deliberate pledge to shut the world off and be present in the time spent together.

Relax And Re-Connect: It can be hard not to let go of the stresses of everyday… work, kids, bills, household chores, interfere when you are spending time with your significant other. A couple’s massage is the perfect opportunity to disconnect from everything that distracts you and re-connect with each other. The low lights and calming quiet of the massage treatment environment are conducive to soft discussions or pure and simple silence where you can just “be” together.  

Lower Stress And Anxiety: Massages ease stress and anxiety. Touch stimulates the release of hormones such as dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphins. These are sometimes known as the “social hormones” because they promote feelings of closeness, self-esteem, bonding, and love. These chemicals are also known to ease anxiety and lower stress levels. A couple’s massage can help take the stress and tension out of your relationship for the time you spend together in the spa, but the effects of massage will linger, helping you and your partner connect in a more peaceful dynamic even after your massage is over.

Build Intimacy: The same hormones that help you lower stress and anxiety during your massage are also known to promote feelings of intimacy, pleasure, connection, and love. With these chemicals coursing through your veins, you will feel the effects on your emotions and on a physical level. Sharing this intimate and pleasurable experience with your partner is a recipe to stir things up, increase affection, and enjoy the rest of your date night together.  

Feel Good: There are many health benefits to massage that go beyond their impact on date night, but that are great reasons to indulge in a massage with your partner. These include:

  • Injury Prevention: Massages improve blood flow, remove muscle tension and tightness, and can even increase flexibility. Regular massages can be an important tool in preventing injuries in daily activity.
  • Promote Healing: For all of the reasons above, massage is also helpful in recovery from injury. It is useful in addressing post-injury pain, emotional stress, and can aid in restoring range of motion after surgery or injury.
  • Improve Sleep: A relaxing massage can alleviate stress and tension, promoting feelings of relaxation and enabling easier sleep. Sufficient sleep is key to cognitive function, mood and emotional regulation, and good overall health.
  • Lower Blood Pressure: Massage can reduce your heart rate, impacting your blood pressure and promoting better circulation.
