If you fancy taking up a new hobby why not consider a massage course – but not alone. Book one for you AND your partner.

According to new research from Northumbria University, couples who took part in a three-week basic course not only reduced stress and improved their well-being, but also felt more satisfied with their relationship.

It backs up previous studies that regular massage from a loved one can reduce symptoms of depression, too.

PS I tried once to book my hubby on a back massage course with my Tuina teacher here in Bordeaux but he refused to go saying it didn’t interest him! He didn’t seem to realize my (OK, selfish) motive for wanting him to do it was so he could give ME a massage at the end of a busy day for a change!!

Now I have the research results, I may try again…My mistake was to try and send him off on his own, whereas I should have booked us both in!
