"Celebrate love at one of the best Spas in Lisbon"

Over time, knowing how to maintain romance in a relationship is without a doubt a challenge. Unfortunately, routine, career, children, patience, and the constant lack of time are factors that can affect relationships in a negative manner. The truth is that there must be an effort made by the couple to change their routine, to disconnect from the stress of everyday life and create ways to maintain romance and maintain the passion alive.

If your vacation has long passed or is several months away, there are solutions for you in Lisbon that will allow you some quality relaxing time. Planning a visit to a city spa, or better yet, enjoying your favorite spa on a regular basis, can be the perfect way to share good times as a couple. There are several Spas in Lisbon with romantic massage rituals to share with two.

5 Reasons to share a Spa experience for two:

1. Do different activities

If you have never been to a spa as a couple, the novelty itself is already an important factor for the visit. Couples need to create positive memories and the first time in any activity is always a marking point. If this type of experience is not new, opt for a different spa or different ritual, for example a massage with Toksen or Pindas.

2. Have a couple massage

Massages are unique relaxation experiences that stimulate the well-known hormone of well-being – endorphins. Endorphins have an analgesic effect, which relieve muscle pain and promote the body’s balance and sense of well-being. The sharing of positive experiences increases the spirit of union and complicity in the couple.

3. Relax for two at a city spa

A spa is the best place to relax! Associated with the pleasure of massage, the spas have a set of infrastructures that induce relaxation such as water circuits and / or Turkish bath, sauna, which make the delights of a perfect day of relaxation for two.

4. Therapeutic and aesthetic benefits in a Spa session

A spa is not just for relaxing! In an urban Spa you can easily find rituals with aesthetic benefits such as facials, exfoliations, detoxifying treatments, or with more therapeutic benefits such as back pain, mental fatigue or even sleep problems.

5. The Spa is the ideal break from your routine

Now that city spas are increasingly accessible, make it a habit to visit a spa on a regular basis. Drop bad habits and replace them with trips to the best spa in Lisbon to invigorate your body and mind. In a good spa you will find holistic rituals that contribute to  a healthy mind in a healthy body.

These are just some of the reasons to visit a spa together with your partner. Each spa has its concept, its specific treatment menu and a set of characteristics that make them unique. Take the opportunity to choose the best massage for couples or diversify and take a tour of the different options available.
