Whereas today, you will find different massage establishments everywhere as it has gained prominence with medical professionals, and those that just like to unwind. In this article we focus on some of the most popular massages that are around now in 2021:
- Thai Massage – An authentic Thai massage is one of the ‘go to’ massages these days, and you don’t have to look very far to find one in Europe. They can be carried out with or without massage oil, and either on a bed or a massage table. There are not many Westerners who are fully trained Thai masseuses, and so it will generally be performed by a Thai masseur or masseuse. This is quite an energetic massage and is quite yoga like with the various stretches that are involved. It can be both relaxing and energizing at the same time, and this is one of our top picks.
- Tantric Massage – Tantric massage is quite a sensual therapy, although there are many different facets involved, and can therefore be used for several reasons. Tantric Massage London offers a therapy which is used by men, women and couples to spice up their love life, build stronger emotional bonds, or for those that are battling some psychological problems such as anxiety and depression.

With all these different movements combined your masseuse will have you in seventh heaven in no time, and will give some much needed relief for any aches and pains in the body too.
