De-stress Before the Big Day

De-stress Before the Big Day

The Big Day is approaching. With all the worries, concerns, and details to remember as your wedding date approaches, it is easy to forget the focus of the day should be on the two of you. Your wedding day is one of the happiest, and most stressful events of your life. You’ll find yourself so wrapped up in planning a fantastic event for your family and friends that you’ll forget to preserve some space and time to ensure the two of you have a wonderful day, as well. You deserve (and need!) a much-deserved couples massage therapy session. 

Stop and take a break

From cake sampling to party planning, your days will be full of non-stop errands, lists, and places you need to be. All this hustle and bustle can take its toll on your relationship, your health, and even your last nerve. You need to preserve some down time for decompressing and relaxation. That’s where we come in.


Massage therapy is not only relaxing but offers you that much-needed time and opportunity to clear and quiet your mind from all those pesky things on your to-do list. Excessive stress takes its toll on our health. Tension headaches, skin problems, hypertension, and sleeping issues can all arise due to too much stress in our daily lives. As with everything with wedding planning, don’t wait until the last minute. Schedule regular massage sessions at least six months in advance of your big day. Massage therapy is most effective when it is treated as maintenance, and not just quick-fixes. Multiple therapy sessions will result in long-term results and benefits.

It’s not just a luxury, but a necessity

During massage sessions, your heart rate is lower, your breathing is slower, and your muscles release the tension causing tightness and soreness. Circulation and immunity are improved as well. Massage assists the lymphatic system in disposing any toxicities within our bodies. As a result, skin conditions improve, and we take on a healthy “glow”. With regular massage therapy sessions, that much-desired glow of happiness exudes from every pore.


To achieve a flawless appearance, we must start at the foundation of your being. Your posture, demeanor, and skin tone are all affected by what is going on inside your body. Proper care to achieve and maintain optimal health prior to your Big Day will result in a more radiant and happier you. Waiting until the last minute to schedule a quick-fix massage session could result in a headache or grogginess due to the release of the toxins. That could affect your liveliness and joy during the wedding festivities. We recommend scheduling at least one to two massage therapy sessions prior to the week of your wedding day to prevent this from occurring.


What better way to pamper the wedding party than by scheduling a couple of rounds of massage therapy in the weeks leading up to the Big Day? You’ll ensure your Bridesmaids and Groomsmen are relaxed and happy, as well as the two of you. Schedule a massage therapy session the day prior to your wedding to allow that one last deep breath of relaxation before the parties begin. Pamper yourself and your participants.

It’s YOUR special day! Congratulations!
