New Study Highlights the Benefits of Couples Massage
They say you can’t have your cake and eat it, too. But at Spa Space, which is among the top spas in Chicago, you and your partner can absolutely have your cake and eat it, too.
One of our most popular services for a couple’s spa day is our unique and romantic Couples Massage: The Art of Touch. You’ll not only enjoy a fabulous massage from one of our experienced massage therapists, we’ll teach you and your partner massage techniques that will help you both.
This interactive and instructive session is a gift that keeps on giving. According to Health.com, “The power of touch offers major mind-body health benefits—and it just might make your relationship more solid.”
In a story by Amanda MacMillan poster earlier this year, Health.com reports that, “The benefits of professional massages are well documented: they provide stress relief, relax stiff muscles, and deliver soothing self-care.” A new study shows that couples can enjoy those same results and strengthen their relationship when they give each other a massage.
The experts at Health.com went on to say, “The researchers found that both partners’ well being, perceived stress, and coping abilities improved after each rubdown. Those feel-good results remained even three weeks following the end of the massage training. (Overall, 74 percent of participants continued to do partner massage after the course had finished.)
“Of course, when you’re on the receiving end of a massage, it makes sense that you’ll reap these benefits. What’s really interesting, the study authors say, is that physical and emotional well being for both partners—the giver and the receiver—surged after each massage session.”
There are many ways to enjoy a couple’s spa day at Spa Space, where you can enjoy a couple’s massage or pedicure in a private suite for two. It’s one of the very few “true” couple’s massage rooms in Chicago. You can look far and wide, but you won’t find a better day spa in Chicago for a romantic and relaxing spa day.
