Relax with Melbourne’s best massages

There’s nothing quite like a massage to soothe, calm and recharge – whether you’re feeling a little stiff, or just want to bliss out for an hour so. Or, just because. From relaxation to remedial, gentle to vigorous, zen to sports – Melbourne offers a wealth of options for weary bodies. Go on, you deserve it.

Onsen Ma

Short of catching the evening flight to Tokyo, escaping into Onsen Ma is as close as you’ll come to an exercise in traditional Japanese rest and relaxation. Here you’ll discover the soothing wonders of Japanese Dry Massage – influenced by the ancient practice of Shiatsu. More than just a space to unwind, Onsen Ma is an immersive experience that will stay with you long after you leave.

Aurora Spa

One of Melbourne’s originals and best – the stylish Aurora Spa team know a thing or two about massages. If you’re looking to calm those nerves and leave your worries behind, we recommend the aptly named ‘Bliss Soothing Massage’. Using your choice of a signature essential oil blend to calm and rebalance the body, the end result is a state of pure relaxation.

Urban Leopard

For when a soft touch, candles and essential oils just won’t cut it – the therapists at Urban Leopard have created a specially formulated cream made of beeswax, cocoa butter and coconut oil that makes the connective tissue underneath the skin extra malleable, allowing them to shape it into more pain-free positions. So you can rest assured that even the most stubborn of knots will be kneaded loose.

Norbü  Urban Retreat

Housed inside the chic Olsen Hotel, Norbü  sees massage and relaxation as an essential component of a balanced life. In this appropriately named ‘urban retreat’, you’ll find everything from hot stone to relaxation to remedial – each option as calming and relieving as the last. Afterwards, you’re encouraged to try their Detox Box – a soothing infra-red sauna.

Skin Day Spa

Nestled away from the everyday chaos of busy St Kilda, Skin Day Spa is a study in serenity (and a particularly chic one at that). Here the team of expert therapists bring a relaxed energy to their practice that will have you feeling at peace in no time. Try the ‘Relaxation With Hot Stones’ massage for an immersive and deeply relaxing experience.

Mansion Hotel and Spa at Werribee Park

First, there’s the location – an oasis of calm hidden within the breathtaking heritage-listed Werribee Mansion. Then, there’s the massage. Achy, tired bodies will love the spa’s signature ‘Tension Relief Massage’, which works the pressure points around your shoulders, neck and scalp whilst easing you into a state of pure meditation.

Miss Fox

If you’re looking to splurge and indulge in a little well-deserved pampering, the glamorous Miss Fox is widely regarded as the city’s premiere boutique wellness destination. Offering what’s claimed to be ‘Melbourne’s most luxurious full body massage ‘, complete with organic beautifully scented essential oils and balms, this is just the place to switch off and enjoy some much-needed me time.

Endota Spa Brighton Beach

Encouraging you to consider your wellbeing as a priority rather than a treat, Endota Spa was designed as a haven to escape life’s everyday stresses. From your welcoming cup of herbal tea to your expertly handled candle-lit massage, here you’ll experience a sensory journey with transformative results. Found throughout Melbourne, our favourite location in charming Brighton comes complete with beachside views.

Milk & Honey Remedial Massage

The minute you enter the lovingly put together, sun-drenched studio at Milk & Honey you’ll be sure to feel some of that tension begin to fade away. While a combination of relaxing spa-quality massage combined with remedial techniques ensure that as well as leaving calmer, you’ll likely exit feeling looser and a little lighter too.
