For couples, that stress can be a strain on the relationship. Finding a way to cut that stress together, interestingly enough, is a wonderful way to grow closer.
That’s where the spa trip comes in. There’s really nothing like a good massage or a decadent skin treatment to make the stress melt away. Doing these with your significant other just makes the experience all that more sweet.
