Traditional Thai massage in Barcelona

What are the benefits of a traditional Thai Massage?

thai-massage-barcelonaIf you have been in Thailand, you will have noticed how deeply rooted the massage culture is over there. Massage parlours can be found on the corner of every street, and world-renowned schools and institutes transmit their knowledge on the traditional Thai Massage.

What is the difference between the Thai Massage and other massages?

One of the main differences is that the Thai Massage is not given on a massage table, but onthai-massage-benefits a special futon which is placed on the floor. Since oils aren’t applied to the body, the massage is given fully clothed.

The Thai Massage focuses on pressure. It takes a well-trained massage therapist to make sure this pressure isn’t just painful, but is used to release the tension in your muscles and to increase your flexibility. Different postures, stretching and pressure all form part of the Thai Massage, which is intensive to the therapist, but very rewarding for you.

What are the benefits of a Thai Massage?

  • Since Thai Massage focuses on pressure and energetic lines, it can be of great help in releasing your muscular and body tensions;
  • Because of the stretching of the entire body (from feet, to back to even fingers), it is well adequate for professional and intensive sporters;
  • The combination of Yoga postures and pressure, make it a nice add to a yoga session;

  • The pressure and movements stimulate circulation in your body, combined with a relaxing experience.

Time for a massage at Under Pressure Massage Barcelona

How to find the best massage institute in Barcelona? Search for affordability, dedication, quality and sustainability.

Summer is arriving in the city, together with the millions of travelers accompanying it. This creates that Barcelona will become a busy and crowded city, and the need for relaxation even larger. Which better way to to do so than by going for a massage? But where to go?


Check for prices that are affordable, but don’t go too cheap. For a decent massage in Barcelona, one where the staff is trained and dedicated to deliver a good job, you have to count for a fair price. At Under Pressure Massage I charge 38 euro per hour, which isn’t just a price per hour, it includes me paying my taxes, attending regular courses and training, using quality products, and so on.

Dedication and quality

Just like any other profession, giving a massage should be done by professionals which have experience and are trained in what they are doing. It’s part of the price you pay, but even more so it’s part of the good or bad experience you’ll have. Various places in the city give massages as a “side-dish”, which doesn’t reflect a true great experience. I do nothing but offering massages, have many years of experience and regularly attend necessary courses on improving my techniques. That’s a quality commitment.


When you go for a relaxation and wellness therapy, you don’t want to be treated with chemicals, right? It’s why at Under Pressure Massage Barcelona I only use organic massage oils. But that’s not where my sustainability actions stop. Even though I’m an independent and small business, I want to contribute to a better city. This by paying my fair share of taxes, by contributing to the sustainability movement of Barcelona, by offering only organic tea, by taking your calls with my Fairphone, by having my bank account at an ethical bank, etc. This way I give people the chance to have a massage in Barcelona that will give a good feeling which lasts.

The Greatest Massages and Candles in the World.

Under Pressure Massage Barcelona Sustainable Candles

My commitment to sustainability includes the reduction of waste and my choice for only using organic massage oils.
On top of that I choose to recycle my left-over oils with the products offered by “The Greatest Candle in the World”. They offer a kit with which you can turn any kind of oil (including cooking oil) into candles.
By recycling the oil a reduction of the pollution of drinking water is realized (1 liter of oil can pollute up to 1000 liter of water!).
The candles are very easy and quick to make, 15min are sufficient to prepare your candles with the kit, so even children can get started.
Thanks to the Greatest Candle in the World for its amazing concept!

Argan oil, Under Pressure Massage’s sustainable friend…

Inevitably, we have chosen the Morrocan Argan tree as our closest ally!
This sustainable gift improves everything who crosses its path: humans, the environment, animals and our health…

This tree helps to fight desertification and houses a large biodiversity. Its roots prevent erosion of the soil and keep water for the area. Therefore, it protects this dry land of Morocco from turning into a desert.
The argan tree is a shelter for animals by offering leaves and fruits. In its shadow other plants and grasses can grow, being protected from the burning sun. This way, it improves the whole ecosystem.

The extraction of argan oil can only be done manually, which is why it transformed the life of 2.2 millions people, mainly women. The naturally sun dried nuts are processed in a traditional method of Moroccan Berber women, which are united in their cooperatives. This labour-intensive work is the reason argan oil is one of the most expensive oils available, but it also creates a lot of employment, social welfare and quality.

The cultivation of the argan tree allowed women to be empowered. The generated income offers them and their children an access to education… Therefore, this tree being part of so much social development was issue to many development and sustainability programs.

Its oil is a true gift of mother nature as an antioxidant, anti-aging product, anti-acne product … The benefits on our body are incredible. It truly deserves its nickname of liquid gold!
