A Massage for CouplesNovember 12, 2007 at 10:43 pm | Posted in aging, massage, relaxation, sleep better, taking care | Leave a comment
At Harrison Hot Springs we were celebrating our anniversary and so what better way to relax and be romantic than a couples massage. We had been in the hot pools ‘softening up’ for the experience.
Once at the spa (a few steps from the hot pools) we were led to another room – soft music and lighting – with 2 massage tables set-up and we each had our own massuese – very experienced with one of us wanting a deep tisssue massage and me a relaxation massage. What a great experience, to be in each other’s energy while deeply relaxing and surrendering our bodies to the massaging hands.
It certainly was a unique event and romantic – we finished up an hour later and put our bath robes back on and wandered to the lobby for a lite dinner. Although robes are fine in the lobby they are not ok in the lobby lounge. So luckily we brought some clothes, got changed and had a slow and enjoyable dinner before retiring for the evening.
Had a marvellous sleep that night, our second night and final night. Two nights makes all the difference – so much space and time to relax into with no other agenda.
I hope we can make this get away a tradition for our anniversary – such lovely memories and not stress!! I can certainly understand how this state of bliss could lead to a youthful outlook, even the lines of life were receding from my face.
