Need a double dose of relaxation? Few things can combine to achieve that more than a massage when you’re on holiday. If you’re a fan of massage, it’s an exciting adventure to try different forms of massage in their places of origin or where they’re most commonly practiced and perfected. Pack your bags because we’re going to travel around the world and try out some different massages.

The soreness this buildup often brings is relieved when fresh blood can flow through the muscles.
