What a Couples Massage is Actually Like

What is a Couples Massage?

A couples massage is a duet experience that can be shared between any two people. Your couple massage can be between a husband and wife, a same-sex couple, a mommy-daughter day, or even between a business associate for some pre-negotiation relaxation and socialization. At Matrix Spa and Massage in beautiful Salt Lake City, UT, you’ll find a warm and helpful staff of professionals waiting to give a royal treatment to any couple.

The Couples Massage Experience at Matrix Spa & Massage

Before you get started with your relaxing adventure, you have a few choices to make. The massage session can range from 30 to 120 minutes. You’ll be able to pick from a selection of massage techniques, each with a distinctive style and health benefits. First, there’s the Swedish massage, a carefully crafted sequence of long soothing touches and types of pressure designed to release the buildup of lactic acid in the muscles and help oxygenate the blood. If you find yourself experiencing chronic pain, you might want to opt for the deep tissue massage. It has qualities similar to the Swedish massage, but it involves increased pressure that can seek out the problem spots hidden beneath the muscles. Finally, there’s the hot stone massage that leverages the power of gravity and heat to press out the wearisome woes locked within stiff muscles. Our Emerald Couples Massage package and our Diamond Couples Massage packages also include a reflexology treatment and a salt scrub.









Aside from the physical benefits of the massages above, participating in the session with a partner can make the overall experience more enjoyable. In a couples massage, both participants will be situated in a large room where they will have their own personal massage therapist for the duration of the massage. For those who have never had a professional massage, having a trusted companion nearby can help them to relax and surrender to the massage therapist’s knowing touch. The shared occasion is also a great time to promote bonding between friends, family, and lovers, so feel free to bring along the people in your life regardless of what position they hold in your hierarchy of relationships.

Post-Massage Wind Down

The experience doesn’t end the moment the massage is over at Matrix Spa. Once the massage therapist finishes your massage, you and your partner will be given robes to relax in while lounging in a steam room or a sauna. Once you’re done detoxifying through your sweat glands, you’ll journey to the only meditation cave within the state of Utah. Here, you’ll find time to center yourself while enjoying a selection of organic refreshments.

A Blissful Massage Experience

Whether you’re reigniting the passion in your partnership or just want to share an enjoyable afternoon with a friend, you can’t go wrong with a couple’s massage. Check out the Matrix website for information on scheduling and deals.

Massage Therapy FAQ’s

The law always requires that you be appropriately covered with sheets or towels to keep you comfortable and warm. If you start feeling uncomfortable or exposed, speak up. Your therapist will respect your wishes and work with you to make the massage session a comfortable one.
No, only undress as much as you are comfortable with. Some people prefer undressing completely, while others prefer to keep undergarments on. You'll have privacy in your massage room to undress before the session and redress afterwards.
It depends on your massage therapy goals. Some people get a monthly massage to manage stress or to prevent health problems. Others opt for weekly sessions if they need relief from injuries and chronic tension.
Licensing and certification mean that the massage therapist can legally practice massage in your city or state. To get this license, they must have performed several hours of training at an accredited school, past the extensive licensure exam, and have paid any relevant licensing fees.
Every insurance plan works a little differently, so your best bet is to contact your insurer directly. Some plans do cover alternative therapies including chiropractic and massage. You will likely need a doctor's prescription first. If you don't have health insurance, or if it doesn't cover massage therapy, you can find massage therapy coupons and discounts on our site.
How much depends on how pleased you are with the service and how much the massage costs (the full price, not any discounted fees). One easy trick is to think about how you would tip a waiter after a similarly priced restaurant meal. This is often 15-20% or more if you received exceptional service.
Let your massage therapist know before the session if there are areas on your body that you don't want to be touched. They will have the training and experience to give you a therapeutic massage while working around ticklish or sensitive places like your feet or abdomen.
Yes, absolutely. You should always speak up if something is uncomfortable. Secondly, keep the lines of communication open during deep tissue massage or sports injury massages. Your therapist needs the feedback to work on you properly and without aggravating an injury. On the other hand, if you are looking for relaxation, it's often best not to talk unless necessary. This lets your mind as well as your body release tension. With the right mindful breathing technique, you may even achieve a stress relieving meditative state during the massage.
Most likely, unless your doctor says otherwise. Prenatal massage can reduce and relieve common pregnancy issues like lower and upper back pain, sciatic nerve irritation, swelling, tension headaches, heartburn and constipation, and more. Let your massage therapist know that you're pregnant so they can use the right techniques during the session.
