Couples Massage FAQs Maui, Hawaii
You probably already know that massage is more than an excellent way to reduce stress and relieve sore muscles. It’s a go-to healing treatment to reduce blood pressure, recover from injury, ease anxiety and remove toxins from the body. We often say it: “touch is a necessity, not a luxury,” and massage is ideally part of a well-rounded healthy lifestyle.
What about Couple’s Massage?
If you’re considering a Couple’s Massage as a gift for a special someone, but aren’t really sure what to expect, here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions at Maui’s Best Massage + Spa:
What happens during a Couple’s Massage?
A Couple’s Massage takes place in a quiet treatment room with two massage tables, and two people are massaged at the same time by two different therapists.
What are the benefits?
Reconnecting with your loved one. When you receive a message, your body releases oxytocin, a hormone that creates a sense of affection and love, a perfect gift to celebrate a special occasion. This experience of being fully present in a memorable activity together can help couples reconnect and allow the same feeling to reoccur outside of the massage room.
Massage is good for your health, for all the reasons mentioned above. Plus, you can relax in knowing you’re celebrating your special occasion without over-indulgence in unhealthy ways. It makes a splendid evening for two.
Peace of mind. There’s no need to plan any further than your massage appointment. During a massage, couples almost instinctively let go of day-to-day tension and turn their focus to the present moment.
Do you wear clothing?
Completely disrobing is not required, but it is customary and allows your therapist room for a thorough massage. Just like an individual message, you’ll be discreetly draped at all times.
Can you get a Couple’s Massage with a friend?
While a Couple’s Massage is most often reserved by romantic partners, it is completely appropriate for moms and daughters, or best friends. It’s a unique way to spend time with someone you don’t get to see often enough.
Do you talk during a massage?
Of course you can. But many find the Couple’s Massage experience more relaxing without much conversation. It’s a time to be present and enjoy the soothing moments with your partner. Your therapists will follow your lead on this one.
Are there any rules of etiquette?
The massage treatment area at Maui’s Best Massage + Spa is one of tranquility and relaxation. Cell phones, cameras, and electronic devices should be silenced and stowed in pockets or purses. We also encourage you to arrive early; it alleviates stress for you and your partner and allows you to experience the full 60-90-120-minute session reserved for your treatment.
Sharing such a personal experience of a full-body massage with someone you care about is relaxing and enjoyable. With soothing music, aromatherapy, and the power of touch, it’s natural to feel a deeper connection with your partner after the treatment.
You and your partner can’t go wrong with a Couple’s Massage if any of the following is true:
- You’re both interested in relaxation and connecting
- Both of you agree on the same amount of quiet vs conversation during the massage
- It’s early in your relationship and you love to do everything together
- You and your partner feel caught up in your busy day-to-day lives and want a break
- You’re celebrating a milestone
- You both really want a massage
