6 different types of massage to discover

Why not give yourself a relaxing break and take the time to reconnect with your body and your mind? Getting a massage is a great way to do this, however, there are many types to choose from so it can be difficult to know which type of massage is right for you. In this article, we will go into detail about 6 different types of massage we offer at our salon, making it easier for you to choose which one is most suited to your wants and needs.

What type of massage to get

The purpose of every massage can be quite different. Depending on what you’re looking for, you could opt for either a therapeutic massage, a relaxation massage, an adventurous massage or even an erotic massage. As pleasant as they all are, it’s still important to know what each massage consists of in order to get the experience that’s right for you.

1. Swedish massage

The Swedish massage is one of the most popular types of massage in the world. It uses a very well-known technique consisting of a range of dynamic movements to completely relax your body. This type of massage aims to eliminate any muscle tension and improve your blood circulation. During the session, light strokes are used over different parts of the body. The masseuse caresses, kneads and stretches different areas, allowing your muscles to fall into a moment of deep relaxation, free from any knots and tension.

2. Balinese massage

This massage lasts about one hour and is both rigorous and gentle on your tired, tense muscles. It consists of a mixture of Indian and Chinese massage techniques and follows the principles of Ayurvedic medicine. It helps you to regain the equilibrium between your body and mind. The Balinese massage promotes awareness of the human body and awakens the senses for a unique and invigorating experience. It improves the quality of your skin by toning it and it can even help you to lose weight.

3. Thai massage

Influenced by Buddhism and traditional Chinese medicine, the Thai massage is part of the massage therapy group. This energy-based, holistic massage borrows its techniques from yoga and meditation. For the best results, we encourage:
  • Dynamic and fluid stretching exercises
  • Energy-based work throughout the massage, putting pressure on points that cross the energy lines
  • Meditating and deep thinking during the massage
All of this aims to promote suppleness and spiritual well-being. There are alternative sensual massages that soothe the body, as well as titillate the senses.

What is an erotic massage?

An individual or shared moment of pleasure – the choice is yours! Just like sensual massages, erotic massages are renowned for their benefits to our well-being. However, clients choose to go for one mostly out of curiosity. Erotic massages imply a degree of intimacy, known for heightening sensations and breaking down taboos. This type of massage helps you to release your inhibitions and gives an intense moment of sensuality to those who practice it.

4. Esalen massage

The Esalen massage induces a deep connection between your body and mind. Being one of the most sensual physical experiences offered at our salon, it uses a gentle technique focused on the relationship between the masseuse and the person being massaged. Practiced naked, this type of massage creates a real relationship of trust, promoting sensory awakening and excitement through light, soft touches and wide movements stretched outward from the body.

5. Nuru massage

The Nuru massage is a Japanese massage technique, taking its name from the massage gel of the same name, meaning “slippery” or “smooth”. The Nuru massage promotes proximity and breaks down barriers by involving the entire body. The nuru gel used enables the masseuse to glide over the person being massages, while exerting pressure and caresses in a smooth and seductive way.

6. Tantric massage

Among the many different types of erotic massage, the tantric massage is one of the most physical of them all. The tantric massage promotes unity and serves to strengthen the passion between partners. It will help you to discover yourself and brings out new sensations. It encourages the fusion of two bodies in tune with each other’s desires. It’s about listening to your partner and sharing a pleasurable moment that brings you closer together. Practiced naked, the massage oil is the only thing between your two bodies. Relight your relationship and share an intimate moment with the tantric massage.
