What is a couples massage?
Enjoy the relaxation you’d get in a spa with your partner, but have a massage tailored to your needs. Come along for a massage at the same time as your partner and both of you will come out feeling as refreshed and relaxed as each other without the hassle of hanging around and waiting. By having a couples massage you can share the relaxing benefits with someone special that you care about and it can also be surprisingly romantic.
A couples massage is also a great way to have your first massage if you’re feeling a little nervous about the whole experience. With your partner having a massage at the same time where you can see and talk to them if you like, you have the support of someone that you trust and care about whilst you embark on this new experience.
Where will we enjoy our couples massage?
We have adjoining massage therapy rooms so you’ll each be in one of these. The choice
is yours as to whether you’d like the door to remain open or if you’re prefer it
is closed -
Can my partner and I talk during our couples massage?
Yes of course you can, this is your time. Just make sure that your partner is as keen to talk as you are first!
I’d like to come with my friend, is that OK?
Whilst we call this a couples massage, really its for anyone that would like to experience
the pleasure of massage with another person -
I’d like a different kind of massage to my partner, is that OK?
There is absolutely no need at all for you to have the same type of massage, very often our lives are such that we will actually benefit from different types of massage at different times as well.
You book the time with your therapist at Essential Feeling and then the type of massage that you receive during this time is entirely up to you.
What should I do whilst having my couples massage?
This is up to you and your partner. You can have the door to the connecting room open if you choose leaving it free for conversation or chatter, or if you prefer to zone out then its perfectly fine to arrive together and have your massage treatments completely on your own.
Different styles can be more or less relaxing depending on the external pressures that we’re dealing with at any one time.
How will I feel after my massage?
You could feel tired and generally relaxed, you could even feel emotional as everyone is different and it can hit people differently from one time to another. Depending on the pressure that we’ve agreed we’ll use during your massage consultation, you may feel a little bruised for a few days whilst your tissue heals again following your session. However, most people do feel full of energy after a massage, it’s like rejuvenation.
How often will I need a deep tissue massage?
Honestly and truly it depends on the state of the issue that we’re working with, there is no hard and fast rule. Most people will feel some relief after their first session, but this isn’t necessarily going to be a long term fix. After 2 – 3 regular massage sessions you should feel your relief for longer, but for deep rooted problems that have been ongoing for years it can take some time. The good thing is though at Essential Feeling, because we’re open 7 days a week with appointments from 7am to 10pm, you can usually get a last minute booking if you’re suffering, you don’t have to book something in advance that you might not need, nor do you need to suffer in silence.
Why would I not be able to have a massage?
A few pre-
The following conditions would not be suitable for a massage:
Infectious skin disease, rash, or open wounds
Immediately after surgery, chemotherapy or radiation, unless recommended by your doctor
If you have a bruise, inflamed skin, unhealed wounds, tumours, abdominal hernia, or areas of recent fractures the massage will work around these areas
If you are prone to blood clots, there is a risk of blood clots being dislodged
If you have heart disease, check with your doctor before having a massage
Pregnant ladies should check with their doctor first if they are considering getting a massage
