 Massaging Your Partner may Ensure Relationship Stability

Giving each other a massage can improve both your physical and mental well-being as well as lead to relationship satisfaction, a research has shown.

The findings showed that giving each other a massage may ensure relationship stability as couples tend to operate as a pair when coping with stress.

"Massage can be a simple and effective way for couples to improve their physical and mental well-being whilst showing affection for one another," said Sayuri Naruse from Northumbria University in Britain.

Massage positively impacts the couples' -- both the giver and receiver -- well-being, perceived stress and coping abilities as well as emotional well-being.

"The benefits of receiving a massage from a professional are well documented, but this research shows how a similar outcome can be obtained by couples with little prior training and experience of the activity," Naruse added.

The results were presented at the British Psychological Society's Annual Conference in Brighton.

In the study, a total of 38 participants completed a three-week massage course, assessing their wellbeing via questionnaires before and after massage sessions across eight areas of physical and mental wellbeing, stress, coping and relationship satisfaction.

"Massage is a cost effective and pleasant intervention that isn't just for a therapeutic setting but can be easily incorporated into a healthy couple's daily routine," Naruse added.
