Massages can be done the conventional way or with the help of advanced massage techniques. Both come with their fair share of advantages. Advanced massage techniques, massage devices make the process more convenient. So anyone can get a massage done without having to look for a massage therapy clinic. But how effective are they in comparison with the real massages?
Massage devices are one-time investments. If you buy the right one from a reputed brand then it would go a long way. But if you are choosing a massage therapy clinic you would have to pay the therapist for every visit. This might however be worth the expense in some special cases. If you are getting a massage to relieve pain after an injury, a therapist would do a better job than a normal massage device.
Modern day massage devices are mainly about the convenience. You have two choices. One is to hunt for a clinic, book an appointment, and then spend time and money in travelling to the massage therapy clinic. You might not even find an appointment at a time that is convenient to you. Another option is sit back on your recliner and grab your massaging device at your time of convenience. Which would be the more convenient choice? The answer is pretty evident.
Efficiency of the treatment:
Which is more efficient- the hand massage or a massage device? This is a tricky question to answer. The type of massage you choose, the purpose and other factors would influence the decision here. For some cases even a massage therapy clinic might use some massaging device. This would help achieve better precision and uniformity as well. But in some cases massage done by a well trained professional might be a better choice. For that you should choose the best clinic. I got a jamu massage here when in Singapore and it is one of the best I have experienced so far.
