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?!
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.
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...
