Massage

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Does anyone go for professional massage sessions?

If so how much does it cost and do you see benefits quite soon?

Last few days I've had a really sore back, not sure why, maybe sleeping funny or something.

    Mine cost $60 for an hour, but that doesn't help you much. When I was in England my mum's friend did my massage and I paid about 25 pounds for it, but that was a good discount. I think she charged around 30 to 50 pounds but I'm not too sure :confused:

    £50 ... flipping heck I think I need to change careers.

    Actually I give wicked massages .. but don't help me with my back .. I've also being testing out this new garphics tablet I bought for my pc and now my tendons in my hand are killing me .. think I'll return it!!

    I think the same way people have Shag buddies I need a massage buddy .. female of course .. couldn't picture myself massaging a guy or vice versa!!

    Maybe I'll start a massage club!!

    Every month or so at work we have a Company Health Day - and they invite in a Masseur, with all the proper equipment and stuff, and a funny chair.

    For a tenner you get a 25 minute massage by an attractive young lady, and it gets you out of work!

    I'm pretty handy at massages myself in any lady fancies a go :)

    The first rule of Massage Club is that you do not talk about Massage Club.

    The second rule of Massage Club is that you do not talk about Massage Club

    No shoes, barefoot only

    No shirts or vests

    You must massage until your opponent either passes out or taps out.

    :D

    Sounds good to me.

    I was in Costco yesterday and they had the full massage table kit for sale there ... Has anyone seen the movie "Massage" with Mimi Rodgers and the Guy from FX and FX2?

    Foot Massages are supposed to be good too ... Does anyone remember Nasty Nick from Big Brother and his Reiki Sessions - that seemed to be the only genuine thing about the guy .. looked interesting, do anyone practise this or has had it done to them?

    lol
    breaking rules 1, 2, 4 and 5 :D
    A full massage should cost between £25-£50
    look for someone with an ITEC or ANPT training
    If you want a backrub
    a company called The walkin backrub has branched in Covent Garden, Goodge Street, selfridges, Harrods, and a few more.
    This place rocks (Okay i might be biased cos I used to work there)
    you can get 10, 20 or 30 minutes for 10, 15 and 25 pounds.
    PM me if you want more info...

    Think the ideal solution is to find a massage buddy in my area!!

    Has anyone had a bad massage?

    This girl from the office tried to give me a neck rub once, she was really bad at it!!!

    even working as a massage therapist and knowing my stuff I have had some pretty crap massages. but if it don't feel right, its best to give constructive feedback
    If you have a skill then find someone to do swaps with can cut the costs
    eg I got a website, domain, hosting, email, etc in exchange for giving the internet company staff massages.

    My mum's a massage therapist
    i don't know what's wrong with your back but some remedial massage will very likely help.
