Massage in Edinburgh: things to know before you go

Edinburgh is a beautiful place to live – but when you’re working hard and socialising harder, you need to take a break. Revitalise your mind, body and soul with a massage in the city. Before you hop on the table, check out our answers to these FAQs.

Where can you get the best massage in Edinburgh?

Promising massages with extra ‘ooooo’ are these best Edinburgh spas and salons :

  • Relaxing Moments Beauty Boutique offers Swedish massage and reflexology, located just a short walk from the Royal Botanic Gardens.
  • Aestetica Medical Spa tempts you through the door with aromatherapy massages, lulling all your senses into a state of total bliss. You’ll find them in Edinburgh city centre, a short stroll from King’s Theatre.
  • Bannatyne’s Health Club offers the ultimate indulgence with a chocolate full-body massage. That’s right – a massage where you’re smothered in chocolate.
  • Sabia Sabia Thai Massage offers traditional Thai massage therapy in the heart of Edinburgh, just off Queen Street.

Which massage is best for relaxation?

You can find almost every type of massage in Edinburgh, but when you’re after total and utter relaxation, these are the top three:

1. Swedish massage . Perfect for beginners, this gentle massage involves a therapist kneading out those knots in your back – relieving any aches and pains.

2. Hot stone massage. Heated stones are placed on your body, warming up your deepest muscles to feed them with oxygen and nutrients that support healing.

3. Aromatherapy. Fragrant aromatherapy oils create an oasis of calm, relaxing your senses while your therapist gently massages your muscles.

To make sure your massage is everything you dreamed of and more, check out our article about the different massage techniques and tips.

What happens in a full-body massage?

During a full-body massage, a therapist will knead and work your muscles from head to toe – for the ultimate de-stress experience. If you’ve never had one before, here are some things to know:

  • In the nude. Most full-body massages need you to strip down to your undies at least, but your birthday suit is preferable. It’s up to you and what you feel comfortable with, but you’ll be covered up with a towel during the treatment.
  • Private time. You’ll be given a few minutes to get ready, taking your kit off and getting on the table with the towel arranged to your liking. This isn’t a gym changing room situation.
  • One by one. Your therapist will uncover one area of your body at a time to work on, kneading out the knots and making your worries float away. They’ll work through your arms, legs, hands, feet, neck, back and stomach.

If you’d prefer to keep your clothes on, try a Thai massage or reflexology in Edinburgh. Whatever you decide to go for, you can find more tips about massage etiquette in our helpful guide.

What are the benefits of Thai massage?

Thai massage is an ancient practice of healing from the mysterious east, which has a whole range of benefits, as reported in Medical News Today :

  • Soothes feelings of stress and angst
  • Releases muscular tension
  • Helps you feel energised
  • Boosts your circulation
  • Improves your flexibility
  • Eases stiff joints
  • Reduces the risk of athletic injuries

A Therapist’s Massage Techniques and Tips for the Most Relaxing Massage Ever

Not all massages are made equal. Even if you go in for a particular style—Swedishdeep-tissue, or trigger-point, say—an experienced therapist will most often pull from a variety of modalities to achieve what you want. With so many different therapists using so many different techniques, how can you ensure you’ll get a relaxing massage that leaves you feeling looser, lighter, and with fewer aches and pains?
