If you are thinking about how to celebrate your love this Valentine’s Day
and you want to make it unique and memorable, you could choose something even more intimate than the traditional candlelit dinner for two. A couple’s spa session offers the opportunity to spend a day together in peaceful, private surroundings, sharing the rejuvenating benefits of a customized range of body treatments.
You can plan the day yourself by selecting from a wide range of tension-releasing massages (from the scalp to the whole body) and complementing these with relaxing hot tubs, aromatherapy showers and hydrating body wraps. In between sessions you can take time out to eat, drink, swim or just simply lounge around on luxurious sofas and talk. The food will be nutritious and healthy, though you can also spoil yourselves with chocolate and champagne if you want to.
For couples who might be experiencing difficulties, counselors suggest that shared spa days can help with the “fix” because it’s often the demands and stresses of everyday life that have caused the issues and some time-out together in a restorative, healing setting can provide the much-needed time to focus on each other and remember why you first fell in love.
IT IS THE SIDE-BY-SIDE APPROACH TO A COUPLE’S SPA DAY THAT SETS THE MOOD OF BLISSFUL TOGETHERNESS.
You may occasionally fall into restful sleep, but your partner is right there beside you, so whenever you are both awake you can gaze at each other as you simultaneously experience all those soothing sensations. Couple’s suites are specially designed to promote calm and tranquility, so all of your senses will be stimulated by soothing sounds and music, fragrant essential oils and tactile hot stones carefully placed on pressure points.
The staff at reputable spa centers are highly trained and experienced (and if you want assurances, check their licenses and qualifications and read their reviews) and will make you feel very comfortable at all times.
