Getting a massage is a great way to relax your mind, body and soul.  A massage is used for a variety of health-related reasons such as for relaxation, to relieve pain, rehabilitate sports injuries and to improve one’s general wellness.
There are many different types of massages available to suit your needs. From improving circulation to aid detoxification or to simply de-stress, here are some popular massage treatments and suggestions on where to find them in KL.

1. Traditional Malay Massage

Malay Massage
At first, this form of massage was catered only for the royal families in Malaysia, for hundreds of years. But now, the traditional Malay massage has made its way into many local spas. For this type of massage, the therapist uses part of their arm (from their elbow to their fingertips) to apply long kneading strokes, focusing on the muscles with pressure applied to various points on the body. This is traditionally carried out without any kind of oil, but many present day spas use aromatic natural oils like ylang-ylang, orange, ginger, coconut and patchouli to facilitate the ease of kneading.

2. Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage
This classic massage is the most common and best-known in the West. Long, rhythmic strokes combined with warm scented oil are used to warm up your muscles, helping to release tension and gradually break up your muscle knots. A Swedish massage can be easy and gentle, or intense but invigorating, depending on the therapist’s style as well as the clients’ request.

Often described as a ‘Yoga Massage’ due to the bending and stretching movements, Thai massage helps to soothe tensed muscles, improves flexibility and relives aching joints. The therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches. Acupressure, muscle compression and joint mobilization are also part of this treatment.
