Massages are a great way to help your body and mind relax and thereby relieve yourself of stress. However, there are many different types of massages that are available and some of them are as follows.

Deep tissue massages

If you are or were under the impression that all forms of massages involved making you feel comfortable with no pain involved, then you will be mistaken since deep tissue massages involves applying deep pressure to certain parts of the body that you may feel ailments or chronic pains in. This is mainly used as a therapy for people that suffer from conditions like chronic back aches and repetitive strain injuries. During the massaging session you may experience a bit of pain and this does last for a few days after as well. 

Tantra massages

These massages are erotic in natureand relies on the act of touching to help you feel relaxed and relieve yourself of stress. Getting a tantric massage Wan Chai would require that you and the masseuse be naked as he or she touches you on all the erotic parts of your body which in turn stimulates a feeling of comfort. It is also known that this also allows you to feel multiple orgasms during the entire procedure. This type of massaging originates from the Western world unlike most massages which originates in the Asian parts of the world. 

Shiatsu

As the name suggests, this originates from Japan and unlike the popular Nuru massage, which also comes from Japan, this does not involve any erotic physical contact. The procedure that is used mainly involves the use of finger to apply pressure onto certain areas of the body that you may experience tensed muscles. The finger pressure stimulates the flow of energy throughout the body which in turn helps you feel a lot more vitalised. This may sometimes be associated with a bit of acupuncture as well to help further stimulate the vital points in your body. 

Hot Stone Massages

As the name suggests, this involves the use of stones which are heated to a warm temperature in order to help you feel relaxed and comfortable. The masseuse will use these stones to apply gentle pressure all over your body. The stonesused are smooth, and pebble like so you wouldn’t have to worry about getting any bruises during the procedure. This might not be the most relaxing type of massaging therapy that is available since the stones are quite hot, however there shouldn’t be any pain that will last for more than a day. 

Therefore, it can be noted that not all massages are as comfortable as you may have thought, but they all do effectively help in relieving stress.
