Southwest Metro Spa Treatments

Massages and spa treatments help couples relax, rejuvenate and share romance.
Massera massage therapists LeAnna Anderson and Terrie Levasseur treat Joachim Eitenmiller and Ambrosia Anderson to couples therapies.

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, everyone’s on the hunt for something special to share with the person they love. This year, treat your honey and yourself to a little pampering, relaxation and romance at a local salon or spa. Couples massages offer a whole slew of benefits, from stress management and muscle tension relief, to improved circulation and flexibility, and of course, some quality time together. As LeAnna Anderson, massage therapist at Massera in Chanhassen, explains, “things tend to become stagnant in our body and a massage will remove the old and replace it with fresh new nutrients that our body desires.” So take some time to unwind and relax – your loved one will thank you and so will your body.
