Let’s face it, the day-to-day grind can be too much at times. All that 9-5 stress, trying to find time to see your friends, spend time with bae, eat healthy – it can really take its toll. That’s why you need to make time for YOU, time to really bliss out and escape… And if the Bahamas are out of the question, then at least for an hour or two.
Thanks to TUL the hard work has been done for you this time: All you need to do is lie back, close your eyes and relax. Let us present Melbourne’s best massage hot spots. We’ve got you, gurl.
Miss Fox Melbourne
To truly relax your mind and body, book in for a massage at the award-winning Miss Fox Melbourne. Choose from a blissful selection of massages available, for either relaxation, deeper tissue manipulation, detoxification or aromatherapy. We highly recommend the signature Coconut Melt body massage, which uses nourishing and soothing balm made with 100% pure extra virgin coconut oil. Not only will you tune out to all of life’s stressors with the beautiful scent of coconut, you’ll leave feeling pampered from head to toe.
Mornington Peninsula Hot Springs
Plan a day trip with the gals and get yourself over to the Mornington Peninsula Hot Springs. Offering everything from invigorating and re-energising massages to balancing and relaxing treatments, there’ll be something that speaks directly to you! We just love the Aboriginal inspired 60-minute full body Kodo Massage that helps tone and realign your energy flow, ensuring you feel as light as a feather when you get up. There’s also the option of adding a 30-minute treatment enhancement when you book. How does a replenishing foot massage sound? Or a hair and scalp treatment combined with a head, neck and shoulder massage? Divine.
Milk & Honey Remedial Massage
If you’ve been feeling the tension in your back, neck, shoulders or hips, chances are you might need a bit more than a relaxation massage to make you feel whole again. The crew at Milk & Honey Remedial Massage are experts when it comes to getting to the root of the problem, and can tailor a treatment to specifically suit your needs. So whether you’ve got a sporting injury or a desk injury, chances are these guys can help!

Vigorous Traditional Thai
Using age-old traditional Thai techniques, the team at Vigorous are equipped and ready to tackle your tough spots. Give the Deep Tissue With Oil massage a go and relax as your masseuse uses thumbs, palms and elbows, combined with high-pressure techniques and slow concentrated strokes, to relieve deep knots and tense muscles. They also do beautiful relaxation massages too, using slow hand-movements with a soft-to-medium level of pressure. Perfect for a little rejuvenation at the end of the day.
