6 Seattle spots to get the best massage of your life

Feb 12 2021, 4:07 pm

If weekend getaways don’t bring you peace, perhaps you need something a little more intensive — try a massage.

The most popular types of massage consist of the Swedish massage, which uses mainly kneading, circular motions, vibrations, and long strokes; hot stone massage, which is good for improving blood flow and relieving pain; and deep-tissue massage, which uses slow strokes and deep finger pressure to relieve tension from your muscles and tissues.

Regardless of if you’re facing pain or simply feeling worn out, head over to one of these heavenly Seattle massage parlors.

Although the spot fills up quickly, it’s one of our favorites because of the fact that guests can utilize the spa, pools, and sauna once their stellar massage is over.

Please note: Banya 5 is currently only offering massage and scrub services at this time.

Those seeking a couple’s massage should look no further than Little Red Day Spa. More of a couple’s getaway than a day spa, enjoy massages, food, a jacuzzi, as well as four styles of rooms to pick from. A tad pricey at $345+, the all-inclusive massage is worth it when you think about all of the added amenities.
