Byron Bay is known as being a chilled out place with some awesome day spas and massage therapists.
Here is a collection of some of the best massages in Byron Bay and the northern NSW region.
Ripple is a mobile massage and beauty business that brings the day spa to you across Byron Bay.
Byron Bay is often a romantic getaway destination for couples, with it being a popular honeymoon place or just for couples that want to take some time out and getaway.
There are lots of options in the day spas in Byron and the North Coast NSW region for couples treatments.
These can often be done at the same time with two therapists in the one treatment room, or one after the other if preferred.
If you are looking to book a couples massage, its advisable to do this as much in advance as you can, as availability can be more limited if you want two therapists as opposed to just one.
Ripple massage has lots of couples day spa packages, and the advantage of booking with Ripple is that they come to you all the way from Ballina and Lismore, through out Byron Bay and Suffolk Park, right up through Kingscliff and Casuarina to the NSW border.
They also come out to the Byron hinterland, where massage and day spa options can be more limited.
Alternatively, Elements of Byron, Santai, Kiva Day Spa and others have good reputations for their day spa treatments. A good place to look for suggestions is on Trip Advisor.
Popular for groups of girls coming up to Byron for the weekend from Sydney or Melbourne (especially to escape the southern winter) or for Queenslanders heading south for some relaxation, girls weekends in Byron have become more and more popular in recent years.
There are lots of different options if you have a group of friends who want to get some pampering.
Some of the larger day spas in Byron will cater for groups and will have a number of treatment rooms available for multiple massage and beauty treatments at the same time.
Again another popular option is mobile pampering. You can book this for a hens party or a girls getaway, and is a great option if you have booked an AirBNB in Byron or holiday house or are having it in a private home. This can be easier as you don’t have to get everyone to the clinic or day spa all at the same time, plus you sometimes have more flexibility when booking as it can be easier to get multiple therapists on a mobile basis at the one time.
This massage is similar to the well-known Hot Stone style of massage. The therapist uses smooth, warm stones as an extension of their own hands.
The heat from the stones loosens the muscles to allow the therapist to work them more deeply, more quickly.
This is deeply relaxing and great for the body. What makes the Fusion Stone Massage different is the way that the warm stones and unique massage movements combine to create a relaxing blend for body and mind.
Another popular massage style in Byron is the pregnancy massage.
Different massage therapists will do a prenatal massage different ways, but if you are keen to book one of these, make sure that your therapist is trained in this style.
There are a number of trigger points and other health considerations when doing this style of massage, so make sure your therapist knows what these are.
This style can be done either side lying or sometimes on the stomach depending on the time of the pregnancy and comfort of the client.
A delicious way to start any massage is to have a body polish or exfoliation.
This will not only gently slough of any old skin cells and leave your skin invigorated, but this style of gentle massage will stimulate the lymphatic system.
There is such a wide mix of styles!
There is the Wild Thyme and Pumice Massage. This massage style uses pumice to invigorate the whole body. The pumice removes dry skin and dead cells for overall healthier skin. Organic wild thyme is also used in the massage and aloe Vera is applied to moisturise and hydrate the skin. Or there is also the Lu’Lur Scrub Massage, which is a Balinese style of massage that incorporates a scrub made from a paste made of ground rice and turmeric infused with jasmine and hibiscus flowers.
Ripple includes a full body exfoliation in any of its day spa packages of two hours or more made from a nourishing cream base, ground walnut shell and tangerine essential oils.
There is also dry brushing, the Native Flora Massage uses this style, where a body brush is used in a similar way at the start of the massage to gently exfoliate the skin. Sea salt scrubs are also popular, although these can be a little bit harsher and give a deeper exfoliation, and are not recommended for those with sensitive skin.
Byron Bay and the wider region of Kingscliff, Mullumbimby, is known for having a strong holistic and counter culture in its community. Crystal Castle is a popular holiday destination there, and there are all manner of psychics, healers, tarot readers and more.
Kahuna massage is a more common style of holistic massage, drawing from Hawaiian traditions. There are a number of good practitioners in the Byron Bay region of this style.

Really had a great experience with Amy from Ripple Massage yesterday.
Ripple massage was prompt to my request, flexible and efficient when I needed to make a change and the massage itself was 10/10.
Amy was attentive to my requests, professional, very skilled and was super friendly.
I relaxed immediately and felt great today. Thanks Amy, and Ripple Team.
