Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and that means couples around the country are making plans for this special romantic day. And since staying in is the new going out, ideal Valentine’s plans might include an in-home couples massage (keep the champagne for after the massage.)
That said, setting up your own spa massage at home takes a bit of effort. One of the requirements: massage music for couples.
There are many kind of music tracks that work well for a massage, but a couples massage is something special. We asked licensed massage therapists to choose the tracks they play for couples on Valentine’s Day during massages.
Massage music choice no. 1
Norah Jones is a top massage music choice to soothe and relax. “I play Norah for stresssed-out moms and dads all the time,” reveals one therapist.
Massage music choice no. 2
Several massage therapists cited Sade as a big favorite for couples. “Sade is always perfect for any romantic occasion,” says a massage therapist. “Even better, I like to listen to Sade myself.”
Massage music choice no. 3
Another therapist says that couples seem to love the tried and true musical stylings of Enya, the melodic Irish singer whose songs accompany many a massage therapy treatment.
Massage music choice no. 4
If you want music that has a little more energy to it (perhaps you’re going out to dinner after the couples massage treatment), one therapist loves Nightmare on Wax. “It’s groovy but calming,” she declares. “It’s always a big hit.”
Massage music choice no. 5
In the same vein, Spotify offers Late Night Chill. Therapists confirm that the tracks are indeed chill, but not sappy. “You won’t hear Barry White on Late Night Chill,” advises a massage therapist.
While some of these tracks are specific to Spotify, others can be found on Pandora, Apple Music, and Amazon Prime. Regardless of which music source you choose, make sure to play ad-free music. Nothing interrupts a couples massage vibe more than an an ad for dishwashing liquid.
