Have you ever had a really good massage and wanted to share the experience with someone? Did you know that as part of our 1.4m makeover, the Osprey Spa now has its very own couples massage room! Whether you are celebrating a special occasion or just fancy a treat, now you can share this wonderful experience with your other half. Here are some of the benefits of enjoying a couples massage:
Try Something New
Although it’s always great to spend time with your other half, date night can become a bit boring and repetitive. There are only so many places to eat or films to see in the cinema. Try something different and treat yourselves to a relaxing massage together in our top of the range couples massage room. Sharing new experiences and trying a new activity together will strengthen your bond as a couple.
Mind Your Minds
Massages have been proven to have many physical benefits but can also improve your mental wellbeing. Massages can help to relieve anxiety and stress and give you some headspace, away from your busy lives. Being fully relaxed and stress-free can encourage mindful and thoughtful conversations between couples and allow the lines of communication to open up further. Your relationship will benefit from you both being calm, relaxed and in the moment.
It’s often hard to find time to spend alone together without the pressures of finances, family life and busy work schedules. Luckily our couples massages don’t require time off work or an overnight stay. Make time for your partner and your relationship by taking just 60 minutes out of your busy lives to spend together. Spending this quality time together and sharing this new experience will give you time away from your family to concentrate solely on yourself and your partner, strengthening your friendship and relationship.
When you go for a massage you will need to undress down to your underwear and be covered with just a towel. You then leave your body in the hands of our professional and qualified massage therapists. This can raise your awareness of your body and what you like and dislike. For example, you may find a back massage very relaxing but a foot massage too sensitive. Becoming more comfortable with your body makes you more relaxed and you may just pick up some tips to take home and practise on each other.
While massages release tension from our muscles it also helps to release toxins from the body and encourage serotonin production. Serotonin is our bodies happy hormone which helps us enjoy the massage, increases intimacy in couples, happiness, calmness, and pleasure both during the massage and after. These added feelings of affection and wellbeing will improve your relationship and encourage not only intimacy but a deeper connection.
If you want to experience the pleasure and relaxation that comes with a couple massage, book a slot online or call one of our friendly therapists and we will be happy to talk through your options. Couple this with a luxurious stay in Osprey Hotel for the ultimate date night!
