In a four-hands massage, two therapists work on one client at the same time, often using synchronized moves. A four-hands massage can be like experiencing two full body massages simultaneously.
Massage therapists may mirror each other’s movements, or they may each work on a different part of the body. It helps if the two massage therapists have a similar style and touch to make it feel almost like one person. Regardless, a 4 hands massage is an amazing sensation!
Four hand massage originated in the Ayurvedic tradition. According to contemporary practitioners, it is highly effective in balancing energy levels throughout the body.
Four-hand massage is generally more expensive than other forms of massage, since two therapists must be compensated for their time and skill.
A 4 hands massage is extremely relaxing, though it may take some time to get used to the sensation of two people working on your body at once. At first you might find yourself trying to keep track of the therapists, where each one is and what each one is doing, but very quickly your brain gives up control and relaxes.
This is a powerful treatment for anyone who has a hard time letting go during treatments.
A couples massage is when you receive a massage at the same time as your significant other, friend or family member by two different therapists. It is sometimes also called a duo massage or duet massage.
At Sirius Health, you can choose to receive your couples massage in one treatment room, or you may receive simultaneous Thai massages in separate treatment rooms. The benefit of sharing the same room is that you can share your experience with your partner. So to keep you closer together, we will focus more on acupressure rather than the larger stretching movements in a full body Thai massage.
If you and your partner are more interested in receiving a full Thai massage, you can choose to receive simultaneous Thai massages in separate rooms. This allows us to do the full range of Thai stretching techniques.
Couples massage is a good choice when lovers are in the throes of early romance, and can't bear to be apart. They want to share everything, even their massage. Many couples treatments are specifically designed with romance in mind, including time alone in a rose-petal-strewn tub, a bottle of Champagne with strawberries and chocolate, and lounging time by a fire after the treatment. Part of what you are paying for is a time in the room, which works best when it's a beautiful romantic setting.
Another type of couples massage is simply getting the same treatment at the same time in a room that has two tables. This is a great way to introduce a partner who has never gotten a massage before in a way that makes them feel more comfortable the first time.
Since two therapists are working at the same time, a couples massage is usually twice the cost of a regular massage.
