Yes. I really like it. I think the key is to find a masseuse who you feel comfortable with who is good at what they do and totally professional. The best massage I have had was a remedial sports masseuse and the second best was at the osteopath's surgery before seeing the osteo, they sort of warm-up the muscles first.
My partner and I regularly give each other massages. They're so invigorating. We also had a professional full body massage each when we were on our honeymoon, which was great except they didn't do our feet! How can a full body massage not include feet?!
While in Bali recently, I had a foot & hand massage very close to the place we were staying at in Canggu. My feet did feel wonderful afterwards. They were on the 'menu' as seperate items. Then we went up to Ubud, where we both had a body massage, but not at the same time. I had the 1st 1, then my husband had 1. There was only 1 girl doing them. I have always enjoyed them before, but this time the girl sniffled all the way through it, which was very off putting, & I couldn't RELAX! They were only A$10 there, so we didn't loose too much money! We had them the morning of our flight home. We're hoping to return to Bali again next year, so I'll have a couple more then, but not at the 2nd same massage place!!!
I used to have a fortnightly massages when I was living in Thailand. It was a professional one with and I loved being pampered. It was a stress free and blissful after a 3hr massage. I am looking forward to it when I visit thailand again.Unfortunately the massage by my partner left me sore and have to tell him he is a bad masseuse !
Oh yes, and its very good for you but have a number of friends and family that hate them and feel completely uncomfortable. I live in Asia for 14 years and used to get a massage weekly. A wonderful way to de-stress. Had them at home and that's good too. I particuarly love foot and head massages. they just take you away.
Most definitely YES. I have a professional massage every 3 weeks. Besides relieving stressed muscles also aids whole of body health. My therapist incorporates other techniques such myofacial and polarity.
Years ago on an inclusive holiday which had lots of treatments plus another on a spa day. Would have liked if not 'told' to relax! I'm physically tight and would be good for me but prefer physio as no guff about how to react. If ever win the lottery will have physio regularly.
I do love neck and shoulder massage with facial and head when hair done.
It's just the full body one...
Flaga, I had a head massage before I had my hair washed & cut, in Hong Kong, in April '92 I think it was, it was @ 6pm. It was 'dreamy'!!! I felt so good afterwards, & even the haircut turned out very well, which I was slightly worried about.
Yes I love them, but I haven't had 1 for a few years now. but we're going to Bali for a wedding in 10 days, so I hope to have a couple over there before we return home, in fact I'll try & have 1 in each place we stay at, during our 2 weeks there.
