Creative Romantic Escapes with Humboldt Mobile Massage

 It is so fun to have witnessed all the creative ways our clients have set up surprises for their sweethearts with Humboldt Mobile Massage. Here is a few of our favorite stories and I added a couple tips from us on how to set up your own romantic escape. Have fun! Get creative!

Magic
One client of ours had their neighbor let us into the house while they were out to dinner. We set up in their living room with candles and then surprise! they arrived home from dinner and we welcomed the couple to relax and enjoy a wonderful massage together. Her husband was amazed at how a spa had entered his living room while he was eating dinner.

Trindad Vacation Minutes from Home
Last month we did a couple's massage in a vacation rental for a lovely pair in Trinidad, Ca. To our surprise they were locals and they were creating a Romantic Escape just minutes from their home. Their kids were at home with Grandpa and they were on vacation!

Simple but Meaningful
A regular couple that enjoyed massages from us did a take out dinner every time they got massages so they didn't have to cook and could sit down and eat after their massages.

Tips from HMM

1) Find or create a place that is warm, use a blanket or fabric to cover up electronics or Television, turn off cell phones, house phone ringer and hang a note on the door please do not disturb. ( We have a studio if home isn't the right place)

 2) Buy a bag of tea candles and round up your candles and set them up all around the room.

3) Ask for essential oils in your treatment if you both like relaxing natural oils.

Your First Couple's Massage: How does it work?

   It's important to keep the sparks flying and it is wonderful that just a little time can benefit our relationship if we do it right. Valentine's Day is a good reminder but doing a special thing for each other at least weekly is ideal.

A great idea to set the atmosphere for a romantic escape is a couple's massage. My first couple's massage was in the first year of my massage business. I figured I need to try it if I want to offer couple's massage, so I know what it's like first hand. My experience was magical and I'm so happy I tried it.
 Why is it so Magical?
When your life is full of stress, hard times, or your bodies are just plain sore it is very special to take care of each other in this way.  

Benefits of Couple's Side by Side Massage During the side-by-side couple's massage

  •  An intention of honoring your relationship and the love you have naturally evolves.  
  • Massage can rest thought's of work and what need's to be done and put you into a relaxing present state where you can enjoy your sweetheart and let your true love shine.
  •  Relaxing together after the massage with melted muscles and positive energy, you can have your robes ready to change into after the massage and cuddle on the couch 
Where is the best Location, The Studio, Your Home, or Vacation Rental?

Our Studio or a Vacation Rental/ Hotel is best if... Home is not a fun place right now, have you been fighting or stressed by the demands of the house? 
 Vacation Rental is best if.... You want to relax afterwards without driving anywhere so you don't snap into the busy mind or recent arguments but home is not a good place? 

Home is a great place for you is their enough space? Side-by-side massages need a bit more space in the home we have two massage tables that can be arranged in different ways. Each table needs a min. space of 8ft long by 5 ft wide although larger is ideal for moving around. We can arrange in an L or V shape, or head to head as well as side-by-side(parallel). Not enough space in your home. We can do a back to back couples massage where one therapist arrives and does one massage after the other. 
 I hope you give it a try and I wish you the best romantic escape ever!
