The Benefits of Couple’s Massage

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, now is the perfect time to delve into the many benefits of indulging in a romantic couple’s massage with the one you love.

Relaxing, connecting, bonding… if uninterrupted blissful ‘time out’ sounds like what you and your partner need right now, read on to discover what to expect from your couple’s massage at Vie Spa Bunker Bay.


When you book a couple’s massage, your treatment will take place in a private and tranquil Vie Spa couple’s suite with your partner by your side. During the treatment, you’ll each enjoy a massage at the same time, from two experienced massage therapists.

Before your massage, you’ll be asked to change into a provided robe and slippers using our separate male and female change rooms (remove your bra, but leave other underwear on), before re-connecting with your partner in our Relax Lounge.

Once your therapist has finished preparing your couple’s suite, you’ll be invited to enter the space. Once explaining the massage to you, your therapist will leave to give you privacy to disrobe and lie on the massage tables.


  • Time out, together.
    In today’s busy world even finding time to have meaningful conversation at the end of the day can be a struggle. Your couple’s massage treatment provides the opportunity to lock in quality bonding time and awaken new energy between the two of you.

    You’ll both feel refreshed and revitalised and ready to tackle whatever challenges the world throws at you.

  • Self-Care & Healing.
    During your couple’s massage treatment, your therapist is able to tailor your massage to your individual needs. So if you’re after pure relaxation but your partner has sore shoulders than need some TLC, you’ll both be happy.

  • Relaxation & Shared Comfort. 
    The feeling of being fully relaxed with the one you love by your side can’t be beat – it’s something every couple should experience at least once. By booking a couple’s massage, you can spend much needed quality time together while experienced therapists soothe away tension and stress caused by busy day to day lives.

    It's perfectly normal to feel intimidated if you are new to spa experiences in general – so if you happen to be nervous about what to expect, sharing a couple’s massage can give you more comfort and ease than going solo.

  • Blissful Bonding. 
    At Vie Spa, a couple’s massage is a unique shared experience. From the soft lighting, tranquil sounds, the scent of essential oils and soothing touch – it’s a full body sensory journey designed to bring you both closer together.

    It’s also completely up to you whether you want to use your massage treatment time to reconnect and communicate, or relax and enjoy your shared experience in peaceful and comfortable silence while our therapists do what they do best.

  • Rediscover Intimacy.
    Massage therapy uses touch to sooth the nerves. It’s also a powerful reminder of how important touch can be when it comes to intimacy.

    A couple’s massage can remind you how simple things like a spur of the moment cuddle or holding each other's hand can create more intimacy in your relationship, long after your spa experience is over. 

  • Healing & Health.
    Massage reduces stress, improves muscle tension, boosts circulation, reduces stiffness and so much more. If you are the sort of couple who is into living a healthy lifestyle, then couple’s massage is just another health boosting activity you can enjoy together.


At Vie Spa any of our massage treatments can be combined into a shared experience for couples, but we’ve also done the hard work for you with our new Couple’s Massage Package- a great option for first-timers.

While a couple’s massage is a perfect experience for loved up pairs, it’s also an amazing way to relax with family and close friends, or for bridal parties and hens groups.

Mother and daughter treatments are very popular, but please note children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian in the same treatment room.


Have you noticed how you automatically feel more romantic when you’re on holidays? A spa weekend is a great way to reconnect and deepen your love. So go on, escape your day to day routine and take the time to refresh your relationship with a romantic getaway in the Margaret River Region.
