Unwind with a Couples’ Massage

These local spas bring out the best in brides and grooms

You and your partner will both encounter stress while planning a wedding. It could be not having the right season for the bouquet flowers you like. Or perhaps the right tee time for when all the groomsmen are available. Not to mention choosing between venues when the ones you’ve seen have all been picture perfect. Or handling all those “cooks in the kitchen” (and no, we’re not talking about the caterers) as a united front.

It’s time for you both to get some TLC. Forget the his-and-hers towels: Check out these spas for his and hers couples’ massages in Boston to melt away the wedding stress.

Bella Sante’s Time for Two (Wellesley, Boston, and Lexington locations): In a suite made for “deux,” your individual massage therapists get to work on his and hers massages or body treatments. What’s your pleasure? Pick from a long list of wonderful, luxurious choices (our favorite is the dry brush massage), and you’ll soon be in perfect harmony.

G2O Spa + Salon (278 Newbury Street): You might not be able to agree on the wedding cake flavors, but the two of you will soon have your own taste of exactly what your aching bodies need. This posh spa’s specially designed Couples Suite allows for simultaneous massage. Might we suggest the Le Stone for you, and the Sports for him?

The Mandarin Suite Couples Experience at the Mandarin Oriental (776 Boylston Street): Quite the extravagance (the price can top off at $1,240 and it can take four hours), this hotel’s 700 square-foot signature suite is all about healing. It features a private stone sauna, oversized soaking tub, two treatment tables, and a daybed. The treatment includes a personalized Time Ritual or Signature Spa Treatment with either an herbal body scrub, body treatment, or massage, and an hour of relaxation for snacking on refreshing fruit and fresh juices.

Étant Duet Massage (524 Tremont Street): Come out of this South End spa’s duet rooms singing the same song after you share a relaxing aromatherapy massage with your to-be. Two tables, two massage therapists, the two of you in one room—there’s no better way to spend down time together.
