How To Determine If A Body Massage Is Right For You

Massages are considered one of the oldest healing methods that can specifically ease soreness and realign the body. It is essentially a kind of “touch therapy” that helps to heal injuries, minimise pain, and encourage relaxation. There are several different types of massages intended to alleviate various concerns you might have. If you are experiencing pain and tension, or simply want to improve skin elasticity; you can try Bojin Massage Therapy. If you are looking instead for healing and relaxation then Aroma Bliss Body Massage would be the perfect fit.

Knowing which type of massage is right for you is important to ensure your speedy healing. If it is your first time going for a massage though, it can be a daunting prospect with the wide array of choices available. We have thus created a primer for selecting the best massage that suits your needs.

Determine your specific need

As mentioned earlier, there are different types of massages for different kinds of concerns. As such it is important that you choose a message with a clear idea of what problems you would like to address with the massage.

For example, if the reason why you want to undergo a massage session is to relieve pain, such as headaches, body pain, abdominal pain, stiff neck, leg cramps, or menstrual cramps, the Bojin Massage Therapy is an excellent option for you. This type of massage works on your body’s acupressure points and meridian channels to relieve various kinds of pain. It can also enhance your immune function by improving blood circulation and help you destress by providing a relaxing effect on your mind. The Bojin Massage Therapy also works as an anti-wrinkle treatment since it has some great anti-ageing effects.

Aside from the Bojin Massage Therapy, you can try the Lymphatic Drainage Massage for pain relief and enhancing immune function as well. This massage also serves as an effective slimming treatment, as it can boost your weight loss and reduce your stretch marks.

On the other hand, if you are looking for full relief from stress and anxiety, the Hot Stone Full Body Massage or the Aroma Body Massage are great options, as they can provide a very soothing experience that helps promote better sleep.

Meanwhile, for those who are dealing with muscle problems, the Bio-Equilibrium Massage is a highly recommended treatment since it strengthens muscular fibres, realigns the spine, restores resilience in muscular fibre, minimises abdominal swelling, and regulates breathing patterns. By applying firm and sustained pressure on your body, this massage can ultimately make your muscular fibres more toned and resilient.

Know the contraindications of the massage method

Massages come with numerous health benefits. However, certain health conditions or problems may prevent some people from enjoying these perks. Each type of massage has particular contraindications. A contraindication refers to any symptom or medical condition that hinders a person from receiving a specific treatment because it may be harmful.

Here are some of the most common contraindications to massage:

  •       Skin infections
  •       Fracture
  •       Bruising
  •       Open cuts or wounds
  •       Sunburn
  •       Heavy menstrual flow
  •       Uncontrolled diabetes
  •       Uncontrolled hypertension
  •       Pregnancy
  •       Major surgery in the past recent year
  •       Minor surgery in the past six months 

A pre-existing medical problem can sometimes have bad compatibility with massages. Having medical conditions such as a slipped disc, spinal cord compression, neuritis, unstable spinal segments, and heart problems might end up exacerbating the medical condition. As such it is recommended that (if you have any of these conditions) you consult a therapist before booking a massage session to avoid injury or unfavourable results.

In addition to that, there are a multitude of massages that utilise heat therapeutically. If you are sensitive to heat, this should be considered when you select your favoured massage package.

Check if your schedule can accommodate the number of massage sessions

Finally, another big consideration is about something that everyone is short on; time. Most massage methods require continuous sessions before you can completely enjoy their health benefits. For example, if you are looking to resolve tension built up in your body, you generally have to go through a few body massage sessions before you see the full effect of the accumulating results. As such, it is necessary to consult with the massage therapist in advance to understand the recommended number of sessions and make sure that they are able to properly fit into your schedule.


It goes without saying that massages provide an effective solution to many kinds of health concerns. However, to fully benefit from the health effects of a massage, it is necessary to choose the right type of massage that exactly addresses your needs. Furthermore, you should also be aware of the contraindications to your chosen treatment to avoid possible injury or negative effects. Finally, when choosing to undergo a massage treatment, it is important to keep in mind that consistency is essential.
