Brrr! Winter’s well and truly here and our cosy woollies have been rescued from that trusty (and very dusty!) box under the bed. But, short of cranking the fire up and lounging in front of the telly, or putting on a million and one layers and heading out for a brisk walk, there are few things you can do as a couple during the colder months. Until now, that is.
Thanks to Spafinder Wellness 365 – your one-stop shop for pre-Christmas pampering – you can break tradition this year and try something new, couples massages. Step away from that TV remote and the prospect of yet another Come Dine With Me re-run, and book yourself and your other half in for a spot of serious relaxation.
While your bloke may protest at spending an afternoon in a spa, once he’s sunk into the soothingly hot towels on a super soft massage bed and enjoyed the ultimate in relaxation, he’ll be a spa days convert. Hey, why not pop a gift voucher in his festive stocking this year? After all, couples massages are as much a gift for you as they are for him – sssh!
It’s a cunning trick, but trust us, he’ll love it some spa vouchers. Spa days aren’t just for women, after all. In fact, a recent poll by a key money-saving site revealed that the majority of men quizzed (a staggering 57%) use between six and 10 male grooming items per day! Visits to spas with Christmas voucher are certainly on the rise, too, with plenty of men booking in for manicures, hair removal procedures, and even massages and facials.
Winter marks the perfect time to take advantage of the many spa days on offer up and down the country. Let’s face it, there’s little else to do during the winter than indulge with a set of spa vouchers. Plus, when was the last time you spent some real, quality time with your partner away from the day-to-day chaos of home, work and after-school activities with the little ones?
The great news is there are a wealth of benefits that come with having a couples massage, not least the chance to escape the ever-growing pile of laundry for one night. Massage in general has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety, but enjoying a massage alongside your partner can do wonders for your relationship, too. Helping you reconnect as a pair, a relaxing massage will ensure all your worries melt away. Increasing your feelings of affection, a good massage can also stimulate the release of a host of feel-good hormones, which boosts intimacy. But guess what? A good hour or so on the massage bed can increase oxytocin (otherwise known as the ‘cuddle-chemical’), too, inducing what one website has described as a ‘pretty scientific love potion’ – great if you have some spa vouchers to use.
Looking for a couples’ massage spa in your area? Gift vouchers from Spafinder are accepted at thousands of locations worldwide, too. Simply click on ‘Find a Spa’, redeem your gift vouchers and away you go!
Don’t resort to simply asking your partner what he or she wants for Christmas this year and spoiling the surprise. Instead, choose couples massages vouchers and give them an experience – and festive season – to remember.
