Amidst our busy schedules filled with strenuous working hours, spontaneous presentations and weekends full of meetings, often affection and efforts take a back seat in a couple’s life. Some partners might even feel a sense of detachment when it comes to sexual intimacy. This is when partnered massages come into the picture. Partnered massages are a great way of reconnecting and fostering an intimate bond with your partner.
These days meaningful conversations have turned into liking each other’s posts on social media and date nights have turned into scrolling on one’s phone. In times like these, couple massages help in creating a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere and allow couples to open up and communicate in a more stimulating form.
