Massage may be the ultimate at-home spa day activity. It’s something that you can both participate in at the same time, allowing you to bond with your partner and relax together at the same time. If you’re ready to bring some relaxation into your life or that of your significant other, here are some tips on how to give yourself a couples massage at home.
What it is
If you’re looking for a way to relax and rejuvenate with your partner, a couples massage is the perfect solution. And, you don’t even need to leave the comfort of your own home! Here’s everything you need to know about giving yourself a couples massage. For maximum relaxation and easy accessibility, pick a room where you’ll be able to undress without feeling too exposed (like your bedroom). Set up a table or two in the middle of the room; one should be long enough for each person to lie on his or her back on it while still having plenty of space at either end. Once you’ve covered these tables with towels or sheets, it’s time to get started! One person lies down on one table while the other strips down and gets on top of them.
What you need
You and your partner deserve a day of relaxation, and there’s no better way to do that than with a couples massage. All you need is a little time, some comfortable space, and a few supplies. Here’s what you’ll need to get started 1) Set the mood by turning off the lights or dimming them in your favorite room or outside on a deck or patio.
2) Turn on soothing music for ambiance and set out pillows for relaxing on the floor.
3) Put up blankets if it’s chilly outside and light candles if it’s nighttime.
How to do it together
Nothing says I love you like a couples massage. And what could be more romantic than giving each other a massage in the comfort of your own home? Here’s how to do it together, step by step.
First, get yourselves comfortable by laying on the floor or sitting on a mat. One person can start with their back towards their partner and their head resting on their partner’s knees while the other person can kneel down behind them, placing their hands on either side of the spine just below where it meets at the neck for gentle, even pressure that will help with stress and tension headaches or trigger points in areas such as lower back pain.
Why it’s good for you (health benefits)
A couples massage is a great way to relax and rejuvenate with your partner. Not only does it feel amazing, but it has a number of health benefits. For example, research shows that regular massages can help reduce stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline. Additionally, when you share a massage with someone else (especially someone you care about), it creates an environment where you’re more likely to communicate openly about what’s bothering you. Plus, there are no distractions from work or the outside world so it helps you focus on the present moment which can lead to increased feelings of well-being.
How to make it romantic
Set the mood with some scented candles and soft music, then start by massaging your partner’s scalp. work your way down their neck and shoulders, using long, slow strokes. For an extra-romantic touch, try adding a few drops of essential oil to your hands before starting the massage. Once you’re done with the back, move on to the legs, then finish up with a gentle foot massage. Finally, spend a few minutes just cuddling and enjoying each other’s company.
