Canberra massage parlours?

By 30 October 2006 32

This time of year brings (for me at least) the end of uni, the end of much stress and almost the end of days spent hunched over a laptop.

So to celebrate I thought I would treat my perpetually stiff back to a professional massage. Except I don’t know anything about massage parlours in our fine city.

So what have people found to be the best massage parlour in town? (And where and how much and contact details if you happen to know all that would be great too)

Are you north or south side? Are you after massage therapy, or a ‘parlour’ in the old sense?

A massage. For my stiff aching back. And I’m northside but I’ll go wherever it’s good.

I second ENHANCE at Ngunnuawal…. yeah, the Platypus center.

But ask for Celeste, make sure you get her cause all the others just do acupressure with their elbows which has no lasting relax value at all.

Don’t go to the one in Garema Place civic, they made me feel worse?

You mean Celina?

If you want to give your backa lasting treat, try and book in with Pete, the proprietor of Enhance, for a 30 min chiro treatment. They aren’t all about the previous hocus pocus of chiro with useless back x-rays etc etc. Their treatments are a combination of chiro/osteo/physio.

And chiro is cheaper than massage

the choice of massage place should be determined by the provision of a happy ending

Go to the place opposite the Gungahlin Community Health centre (Same building as Woolworths – opposite end from the carpark) and ask for Emily. Or try the Chinese massage in Belco Mall

I also went to a phony back x-ray chiro recently. I left there with my ass more sore metaphorically than my back was literally.

…. did that make sense?

The massage centre at the ANU is AWESOME. Either the guy or the girl there, they do a fantastic sports massage, and I think they give a discount for students.

There is remedial massage at HAckett Shops – 60.00 for an hour or 40.00 for half an hour. It is strong, not relaxing, but you feel good afterwards.

Hi Kerces

As a co-owner of Chrisindy’s, Canberra’s only adult massage studio or “parlour” we’d love to have you pay us a visit in beautiful bohemian Fyshwick.

However, something tells me that perhaps you are after something more mundane!

I suggest you check out the Yellow Pages or Google massage therapists.

Good luck!
