Thread: Best massage

    Default Best massage

    Today got a lot of crap on banal talk. Let me add to this.

    Where can you get the best massage in Singapore?

    The best I had so far is at the spa at Marriott Hotel. 90 bucks for 50 minutes.

    Thumbs up

    Try the full body massage in Bali.. absolute heaven for 1 hr plus.

    for those needing extra work on stiff muscles, a good massage therapist in Clementi does a great job, but you gotta book in advance.

    the ones in spa centres tend to be a tad more expensive..

    for me, i would prefer the traditional thai massage in Thailand...very good and professional and most imptly very CHEAP...only S$20 for 45mins....really worth it....

    ya !!! due to my back posture, certain days I'll get bad backaches and I think I really need a massage to feel better. But I dunno which one to go do, I'm afraid of walking into a "wrong" one where they do other type of activities as well.

    is the price is $40 for 30 mins the norm ? or is that expensive ? I see that for backmassage at this japaneses place just next to the ritz carlton at marina.

    I think that if you have a back problem, it's better not to go to these massage centres. It could worsen your condition. Sometimes the way they bend your back and all is really scary. And it could especially hurt your lower back. i think seeing a doctor would be a better choice.

    My 10 cents worth (my 2 cents are free)....

    btw, there are different types of massage..such as:

    1. swedish massage
    2. oriental massage
    3. aromatherapy massage
    4. reflexology
    5. zen shiatsu

    personally i prefer the traditional thai massage...just remember to find out more abt how they do the massage before you really go for it...i had a friend who went for swedish massage and it turned out to be a torture and painful experience....

    Talking

    i tried one at st gregory's spa... very ex but the masseur was a trained doctor from China.

    A good masseur may use a combination of the above techniques, but u should always let the masseur know where your injury/sore spots are. And also any significant previous medical history.

    personally, i prefer our local 'tie da' type of massage...or acupressure/shiatsu type massage... seems safer to me.

    No hard and fast rule to getting a good masseur... but i rely on word-of-mouth referrals.

    my three cents worth...
