Therapeutic massage is good for reducing and/or removing any pain, soothing different illnesses; it’s effective for particular body parts and for holistic body treatment. Therapeutic massage is prescribed as a part of treatment after having trauma or surgery.
For those who prefer active recreation and those who like it “harder”.
This type of massage will be especially good for those who do sports while on holidays, go to gym or simply prefer to have hard massage sessions.

Massage of Particular Body Parts

- foot massage;
- back massage;
- head, neck and shoulder massage;
- and massage of other body parts.
Professional Blind Massage
Blind massage is extremely popular in Nha Trang. It’s made by blind massage therapists who completed a special massage training. A blind massage therapist is believed to feel better any tension in human body, such person can work more effectively on problem body areas. Nha Trang’s blind massage therapists like talking to their clients, many of them know several words on English, Russian, Chinese and try to cheer you up in different ways. You are expected to tip them in return.
You should definitely be attentive if you decide to get a chiropractic massage session. Actually people who haven’t got a medical massage certification haven’t got the right to do it. So if chiropractic massage is offered in a massage center you should learn as much as possible about their massage therapist: where he/she is from, what kind of certification he/she has got, which training he/she has completed. Then, you’d better choose large massage centers that are known in the area and care about their reputation. Here you can be 100% sure nothing bad will happen to you.
Massage for Sunburn Healing
Imagine: you came to a hot sunny country for a holiday, spent the whole day in the sun, and next morning you found your skin sunburned. A very common situation, indeed…
Well, if you couldn’t avoid this, the best solution is to get a relaxing massage with aloe vera. It removes the pain you’ve got because of sunburns. You’ll definitely feel your skin refreshed with aloe vera oil.
Actually there are several things that make massage effective: your own mood, a massage therapist’s skills, finally, how friendly receptionists are!
Sometimes you can get to massage centers where sex services can be offered. Sure, massage won’t be excellent there – it’s not their main specialty.
