If you are a tourist, or a resident in the Bay Area, you may be looking for a San Francisco male massage. There are dozens of places where massages are offered, and finding a trained masseur doesn't take long.
Narrowing the Search
First off, decide what you are looking for in a massage. Do you want to relieve stress, body tension, or are you looking for something deeper like holistic healing? There are many massage therapists who specialize in various types of massages. Some of these include:
- Sport massage - to soothe injuries, often developed while playing sports, and to help with the training of athletes
- Swedish massage - a variety of techniques designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart
- Shiatsu - a form of traditional Japanese bodywork that uses pressure, rubbing, stretching, abdominal work, and percussion
- Thai - a type of yoga massage
- Deep Tissue - an aggressive system of manipulation of muscles and tissues
Along with these massages, many studios offer additional options. Aromatherapy is massage done in a room with aromas, or scents, such as jasmine or sandalwood. Heat treatment includes warm oils, often coconut or unscented, or nourishing hypoallergenic gel massaged into your skin.
Therapists often work on a heated massage table with soft flannel sheets or sheepskin for clients to lie on. Most have a face cradle - a comfortable spot to place your face as your back is being soothed. Soft music, a gurgling fountain, candles, and low lighting are also part of the massage environment.
Red Light District Massages
For those interested in something other than the traditional messages, a more sexual experience, male escort services provide these types of massages:
- Tantra - a sexual massage that involves touching the body's organs, and more
- Fetish - involved massage using a variety of sex toys and fantasies
