Rejuvenate with the best massages from around the world. Discover the best massage techniques that alleviate pain, relieve stress and provide a holistic well-being.

 

Thai Massage
An invigorating massage, Thai Massage combines assisted yoga, passive stretching and pressing massage movements. Often referred to as “passive yoga”, the therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs and feet to apply pressure on the muscles and loosen one’s joints, usually on a padded mat on the floor. This type of massage doesn’t employ oils or lotions and is done fully clothed.

Best for: Enhancing energy, Relieving stress, Improving mental well-being

 

Japanese Shiatsu
Originating from Japan, shiatsu is an ancient technique that involves localized pressure using the therapist’s fingers, applied in a rhythmic sequence along the body. This type of massage provides balance in the flow of energy in the body. Normally done on a padded mat on the floor, loose clothing is worn and oil or lotion are not used with shiatsu.

Best for: Reducing muscle stiffness, Stimulating the skin, Aiding digestion

 

Swedish Massage
One of the most commonly known massage techniques, Swedish massage is a combination of five basic strokes: effleurage (long smooth strokes), petrissage (kneading, rolling and lifting), friction (wringing or small circular movements), tapotement (percussion) and vibration (rocking and shaking movements). The therapist uses lotion or oil and typically begins with general strokes while transitioning to specific strokes to address problem areas.

Best for: Providing stress relief, Releasing tensed muscles, Stimulating blood circulation

 

Hawaiian Lomi Lomi
A traditional Polynesian/ Hawaiian technique focused on energy flow, Lomi Lomi helps to heal physically, emotionally and spiritually by balancing the mind and body. This type of massage uses a combination of massage techniques, nut oils and sometimes elements of prayer, breathing and dance to restore energy and soothe the body. “Lomi Lomi” translates to ‘rub rub’ in Hawaiian and reflects the broad, flowing strokes made with the therapist’s fingers, thumbs, palms, arms and elbows.

Best for: Releasing tension, Improving state of mind, Bringing harmony and balance
