Two is better! There's nothing like a duo massage to experience a unique moment and simultaneously enjoy all the benefits of this treatment. With friends or as a couple, discover the principles of duo massage with Kristell Le Pen, Algotherm training assistant.
The massage duo has many followers. And for good reason, it allows you to enjoy a moment of relaxation for two, a bubble of well-being to escape from everyday life. This treatment is characterized by the fact of being massaged for two in one and the same cabin . ' It is practiced a lot as a couple', explains Kristell Le Pen, training assistant for the Algotherm brand, but the duo massage can also be done with family or friends. 'The parent-child version (6/14 years old) is also growing more and more', according to the expert.
Be careful not to confuse the four-hand massage with the duo massage. Indeed, the four-handed treatment is performed by two practitioners on a single person, while the duo massage is performed in a cabin with two treatment beds close together. Two practitioners are in the room to make you benefit from the massage at the same time as the person who accompanies you. The advantage of this duo treatment is therefore to simultaneously enjoy the benefits of the massage and to experience this parenthesis of well-being together.
Several techniques exist for a duo massage. Relaxing treatment, firming treatment, decontracting treatment, Californian massage, Swedish massage… The possibilities are endless! There are therefore often several offers on the treatment menu of institutes and spas. 'Instinctively, the client will request a relaxing massage to relieve tension in the back and lower back,' emphasizes Kristell Le Pen. If you do not know which massage to turn to, it is often possible to adapt the treatment according to your desires and needs. It can be truly personalized. ' The practitioners will start the treatment by asking you about your expectations, about the type of pressure you like. It's almost tailor-made,' says Kristell Le Pen. Thanks to this personal approach, the two practitioners will therefore not perform the same protocol. The person accompanying you may therefore not receive the same massage as yours. To prolong even more this moment for two, some spas offer a package with beyond the massage, the possibility of enjoying a hammam, a sauna, or even a private jacuzzi. 'With these options, the treatment can last 2 hours, the massage usually lasts an hour', adds the expert.
Many spas and institutes offer duo cabins in the heart of the capital.
