"Couple Massage"

Who has never thought of spending an afternoon at the spa with their better half or even with their best friend?

Moments for two are experiences that strengthen any relationship, be it friendship, romantic or family love.

Massages are an excellent way to relax, release stress, relieve some pain and get away from the reality of everyday life.

What happens?

Couple Massages are an experience of sharing a unique sensory moment.

It will be held in the same room, but on separate tables. There are 2 therapists, one for each person. The whole environment induces relaxation: calm music, relaxing atmosphere, low light, mild temperature and candles… many candles.

The therapists start the massage at the same time and remain coordinated until the end of it, but yes … they can do different treatments from each other. One of you can choose a more relaxing massage – gentle pressure, slow movements – and the other a more sporty massage – deep pressure, firmer and more intense movements.

How to prepare for a couple massage?

The ideal is to make your appointment for the end of the day, if you are looking for relaxation and go home afterwards. If the need is, to increase the energy to face a productive day, then schedule the massage for the morning.

Take a shower before your massage. If the Spa has a water circuit, take advantage of the pools, sauna, jacuzzi etc. You will see that it will help, and a lot, the whole experience, and boost relaxation during the massage.

Eat something light beforehand so you don’t feel hungry during the experience. Nothing worse than thinking about food, when the goal is to relax.

Leave your phone! Phones are not allowed. Either way, your better half is already with you. The goal of having a Spa experience is to relax, disconnect and enjoy a moment for two.

Go when you’re in the right mood! Avoid stressful or complicated topics before the massage. It is a unique moment for both, where the energy should be good, and getting angry before the session, will throw the whole experience down. Tension between couples increases muscle tension and the difficulty in relaxing. Leave the drama at home!

What couples massages are available?

Most massages can be done in double rooms, so if you have a preferred massage , like the Best Relaxing Massage in the World, ask at the spa if you can do it as a couple.

But there are massages made especially for couples. Our couple massage, B in Love from BSpa by Karin Herzog (Lisbon) or Honey Moon from Mandalay Spa (Porto, Lisbon and West) was designed exclusively to be shared with two. Inspired by the Lomi Lomi method, which is part of traditional Hawaiian medicine. It is said that its origin is more than 4,000 years old and comes from Polynesia (more precisely from Hawaii).

It is a ritual that calms the mind. According to a series of myths told in Polynesia, Hawaiians would have learned to massage by observing the back and forth movements of the ocean waves. Thus, this massage is focused on finding congested areas on the body and decompressing them.

Let yourself go on a sensory and holistic journey that will make the connection between you stronger. The whole experience promotes the release of oxytocin “the love hormone” in our body that will generate a feeling of happiness, intimacy, and affection between the couple during and after the massage.

It turns out to be an escape and the perfect excuse to spend quality time, without distractions or responsibilities that separate you, thus receiving the much needed TLC (Tender, Love, Care) in our life and that is our motto at TOPSPA.
