What is Couples Massage Therapy?
Enjoy the therapeutic relaxation of the bodywork you’d get in a spa with your partner, but have a massage tailored to your unique needs. Essential Feeling will always work to reduce the tension in your muscles and your head with an exceptional customised massage treatment, personalised to have a significant effect on your overall health and wellbeing.
Come along for a massage and rejuvenate in our studio 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. Sharing is a way to connect and the process of doing this while a qualified massage therapist eases the tightness from your shoulders offers a deeper level of the luxury of connecting.
By having a couple’s massage therapy you can share the relaxing benefits with someone special that you care about and it can also be surprisingly romantic. A couple’s massage therapy 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.

Questions & Answers
Do I have to have the same massage as my partner?
Never. What suits your partner may not work for you. It’s common for one person to have a relaxing massage such as a Swedish massage which has a more light touch. During this style of massage we may include a hand massage, or facial. We designed it for you to switch off and drift away.
Another person, may be more inclined towards a professional healing deep tissue massage. We’re trained therapists, adept at adjusting your session to your needs, so if you find during the massage that you’d like more of a deep tissue couples massage therapy, then you just need to say. Likewise, if one person in the couple would prefer to have a reflexology session, then just let us know before you arrive.
I’d like to come with my friend, is that OK?
Whilst we call this a couples massage therapy, really its for anyone that would like to share a relaxation space and experience the pleasure of massage with another person – who you come along with is entirely up to you. In fact, having a massage can be a great way to spend time with someone that you don’t see very often if you’re traveling and just passing through, for instance, then this is relaxing but also quality time for both of you.
You get to catch up in an environment where you escape all other distractions. And all at the same time as receiving a complete and effective restorative therapy in a tranquil environment conducive to the ultimate relaxation. Our expert hands will work around your individual needs, working out knots or loosening joints as you feel necessary.
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. We have different lives, different stresses and our mind, body and spirit will need different ways to ease and balance the stress of everyday life.
At Essential Feeling in Romford, 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.
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.
Can I have my treatment on the same day as my partner?
Of course. In fact, we’ll book you in at our bodycentre together so that your adjoining rooms are both available and you both have your sessions at the same time if at all possible.
Where will we enjoy our couples massage?
We perform your couples massage therapy in adjoining massage therapy rooms so you’ll each be able to relax in one of these. The choice is yours as to whether you’d like the door to remain open or if you prefer it is closed – we’re happy with whatever you feel most comfortable with.
Can my partner and I talk during our couples massage therapy?
Yes of course you can, this is your time. Just make sure that your partner is as keen to talk as you are first!
