Good Massage Therapists in Zürich

Does anybody know a good massage therapist in the Zürich area? There are a ton of names and places to choose from so I would appreciate some help trying to narrow it down a bit.

I am looking for somebody (male or female) who is rather strong and would do deep tissue. I have tried a couple of places in Zürich in the past 2 years, but nothing was to my tastes.

In this case I have no interest in atmosphere or hot stones, I just want to find a good person, who does a good massage and is not prohibitively expensive. Whether they speak English or not is no issue. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Re: Good Massage Therapists in Zürich

Hi,

Have a chat to the guys at Oasis, near HBF. I go there for facials and Frau Schellenberg really does have a good strong touch. Her assistant is also quite good. I had a back massage from her and she wasn't afraid to get nice and strong.

So I would recommend a chat first-up with Frau Schellenberg to discuss what you want and see what she says. They're also very easy to get to and she does sometimes work 'till 8pm.


Cheers,
Nanda.

Re: Good Massage Therapists in Zürich

When I lived in Kreis 4 we had a massage parlour at the end of the street.

The were called "4 hands 1 pries" and were open pretty much 24x7. I guess they catered for frugal people who needed a massage at short notice.

I have had the same problems here in Basel. I am a massage therapist myself, trained in Boulder, Colorado. I dream of finding someone to trade with here in Basel whose training was similar to mine. By the way, we in Boulder had the opportunity to learn how to combine "body" work with "bodymind" work.

Good luck, Sharon

Re: Good Massage Therapists in Zürich

Emmag on the forum does a good deep tissue / sports massage - IIRC it was 75 chf for an hour? I've got her card here so drop me a PM if you want her number. (Her place is in Wollishoffen close to the no. 7 tram line)

Re: Good Massage Therapists in Zürich

If it is a medical condition, consider consulting a physician first. He/she would then recommend a competent massage therapist. And your health insurance might reimburse.

Her prices are VERY reasonable... 130 CHF for a 90 minute sports massage is pretty astonishing. I'm going to call her on Monday and get one before I go back to the UK for christmas.

I've been talking to Emma and she seems a very lovely and professional lady and all the reviews I've read about her have been positive. I hope I get to try a massage from her one day

This is not my first post (nor my last)
I can also vouch for Nico Klauk at: www.fliegendermedmasseur.ch
Translated his web page name is "The Flying Medicinal Masseur".
His website is only in German now, an English version will be up shortly.

He will massage you in his Minervastrasse office (near Stadelhofen and the Kunsthaus) or will even come to your home.
His prices are very reasonable for the amazing work he does. Plus he is qualified with the insurance companies, if you have massage in your medical insurance coverage, he is a recognized massage practitioner.
90 min. / CHF 150.-
60 min. / CHF 100.-
30 min. / CHF 60.-
Those are his office prices and you get your full minutes you pay for! He adds a 15min buffer onto each appointment to give you time to talk about what you want massaged, to get undressed beforehand, plus time to relax and get dressed after.
I have been living in Zürich since 1999 and go to massage regularly for knots in my shoulders and neck due to sitting infront of a computer all day, no one until Nico, has been able to reduce my pain. The man literally has magic fingers.

I have recommended him to two of my friends (male and female) and both are going to him regularly now.

Sorry about that. But can happen... some good biz needed to be promoted. Another good one I tried is rückenmassage in oerlikon. Also, nicole at activfitness in kloten is also good too

Re: Good Massage Therapists in Zürich

I can highly rec Maria Feldhoffer. I've been seeing her for two years and have sent a few friends her way and they love her. I have a bad neck (fused from skull thru the length of my neck) from a car wreck and need lifelong physio She works wonders for me.
