10 Unique Massages to try in Noosa
Noosa is a place of tranquility and relaxation. Having been to Noosa, I know that there are a lot of
different massages to choose from when you want to make the most of your relaxing holiday. Due to the sheer number of massages available, it is practically impossible to shortlist the best ones for you. Instead, I have for you a list of great unique Noosa massage styles I guarantee will compliment your getaway.
- Chakra Balancing Massage
Your body’s energy system is often referred to as your chakra system, made up of seven main chakras. These chakras connect all parts of our being, from our physical and energetic self to our emotions and spirituality. Having a balance between the chakras is important for health and wellbeing, hence the inspiration behind this massage. The style of massage incorporates a unique blend of deep tissue, foot reflexology and energy work to specifically target each chakra, re-establish strong connections between them and balance the flow of energy. This will not only make you feel good, but it will make you feel deeply relaxed, whole and healthy. Available in various Noosa Massage clinics
- Zen Thai Shiatsu
This style of massage comes from traditional Thai massage therapy combined with Zen Shiatsu (acupuncture) and joint mobilization. The massage aims to be extremely relaxing while treating specific problems within your body with deep penetrative pressure. It is a full-body treatment that is performed on a mat, where you will be stretched and moved around in order to help you unwind and target the specific problem areas. In particular, Zen Thai Shiatsu is great for back, neck and shoulder pain, as well as joint pain and circulation problems.
- Body Exfoliation Massage
Quite straightforward as the name suggests, the Body Exfoliation Massage is a great way to achieve soft, smooth skin. Exfoliation massages can be done using different exfoliates and lotions; however, this massage in Noosa is performed using intensely hydrating ingredients perfect for a holiday in the surf and sun. The key ingredients used are ground bamboo and Macadamia shells, chamomile and Vitamin E. Together these ingredients both exfoliate and hydrate the skin, leaving it soft, nourished and healthy.
- Lymphatic Drainage Massage
If you like light, gentle massages, this could be the one for you! A lymphatic drainage massage is very gentle and aims to target toxins in the body and remove them. More specifically, the toxins this massage removes are lymphatic tissue wastes. By getting rid of this unwanted tissue, circulation is stimulated, bloating is discouraged, stress is relieved and your immune system is boosted.
- Noosa Head Massage
Head massages date back about 4000 years and are based on Ayurvedic ancient healing techniques. They gently work the shoulders, neck, head and face to relieve tension and promote healing, vitality and internal harmony. This style of massage aims to deeply relax the patient, soothe them, and promote mental wellbeing.
- Thai Foot Massage
Foot massages are a common style of therapy treatment in Thailand, and are practiced by deeply penetrating and manipulating points on the feet. The benefits of this style of massage include increased blood flow around the feet and entire body. Blood, being the lifeline of every cell in the body, means that increased circulation aids balance and energy levels for the entire body as a whole. This in turn also aids the removal of toxins, healing the body naturally. This style of Noosa massage can also treat aches and pains, as well as increase flexibility. Given these benefits, it is important to remember to pamper your feet as well as the rest of your body – and if you are on your feet all day when you’re working, why wouldn’t you want to!
- Ayuryedic Healing Clay Massage
This style of massage is a full body massage, pampering you from head to toe. During this style of massage in Noosa you will be covered with ayurvedic medicated oils and incredible clays that heal you inside and out. This clay also completely rejuvenates your skin, making it feel so lush and youthful. You will also be spoilt with an incredible aroma salt scrub that removes dead skin cells to leave your skin soft and smooth. To finish the massage, you will be treated with hot towels.
- Traditional Chinese Massage
Having been practiced for two thousand years, traditional Chinese Massage is a very popular style of massage. It was created for both medical and relaxation purposes as an alternative to acupuncture and herbs, and still has both of these great benefits how it is practiced today. If you try a traditional Chinese Massage, you will be treated using compression, friction, pinching, percussion and more. These techniques are applied over the whole body in many repetitions in order to deeply massage muscles and joints. This style of massage is perfect for treating chronic pain, sprains, arthritis, musculoskeletal problems and digestive disorders.
- Cupping Massage
Cupping therapy is an alternative form of medicine that has been turned into a massage style. During this type of massage, cups made of usually glass or bamboo are placed on the skin to create suction. The suction created temporarily slows blood flow in the applied area, allowing healing for a range of ailments to take place.
Think Hot Stone Massage but with shells; this wonderful massage by Ripple is truly unique. Like a Hot Stone Massage, the Seashell Massage uses warm temperatures to assist with reducing inflammation, tension and relaxation. However, unlike the Hot Stone Massage, a Seashell Massage draws on the tranquility and wonder of the ocean. Throughout history, shells have been used in healing practices and sacred rituals. This is due to the calming and cleansing properties that the shells posses, as well their beautiful uplifting energy.
