When you think of a date with your significant other, you automatically think dinner or movies. Correct?
Most of us do.
While I think dinner dates are great and fun, they get boring and old really fast. So I truly appreciate it when we plan things that are different.
For the past couple of months, Alen and I have been on a mission to take our dates to the next level and so we did. Starting with Couples Massages!
Massage is a great way to bond with someone special in your life. It is relaxing and it allows you to escape reality even for just a few moments.
We started out with an early Saturday morning appointment. Grabbed some coffee on the way, enjoyed a nice drive and arrived at Elements Massage ready for our 60 minute therapeutic couples massages.
What to expect?
Located in The Arboretum of South Barrington, this wellness center offers a host of different treatments, including couples massages. After a quick check in, we were give a tour of the couple’s room and shortly after that our therapists were ready for us. They gave us individual attention to ensure we received the massage and care we needed. The room was warm, smelled welcoming and everything was personalized and customized to our desire including the temperature of the massage table and the volume of the music. The massage tables were not side by side as you would expect in a typical couples massage room but rather positioned so we were head to head allowing us to be together but still have privacy for our massage therapists. We truly enjoyed the quiet and tranquil time together.
What we loved about it?
The therapists were both really talented and thorough and made us feel comfortable and relaxed. I typically get tension headaches and migraines and my therapist really worked on those areas for me. My husband on the other hand spends a lot of time in the car so his therapist really zoned in on his problem areas and most importantly made him feel at ease. Elements is known for their outstanding customer service and I can definitely see why.
What we took away from it?
Next time I will definitely take advantage of their Aroma Ritual or Himalayan Salt Stone Massage. I say next time because we enjoyed it so much that I signed up for their month to month membership which did not require any sign-up fees or long-term contracts. It only made sense to lock in the low membership rate per massage and make that commitment to our health, wellness and relaxation. If you remember from my previous posts, I am taking more time for myself these days. I am making up year of sleepless nights while taking care of little babies and I deserve this. But more than that I can share it with my husband. I can bring my mom or sisters and still receive this amazing rate of $69 for an hour massage (reg $99) or $99 for a 90 minute session (reg $139) – I love a good deal.
What I would like to point out!
In a typical spa environment there is an upcharge for couples massages and at Elements there is no extra charge to enjoy the couples suite. So while I would have enjoyed a welcome glass of juice or extra cozy time after the massages, I understand that at Elements the focus is always on the massage treatment and the maximum amount of time on the table. But because of their oh so perfect location, you can extend your date after the services and visit the array of wonderful restaurants, boutiques and even ice skating while at the Arboretum. Add a little pizzazz and make it a romantic DAY date! Enjoy.
Be sure to stop by or call Elements asap and don’t forget to mention Hazel Eyes Mom sent ya! You will not regret it. You deserve this.
