Google App Store
Over the last couple of years ( since I changed from iPhone ) I have been trying different MASSAGE APPS. All the ones I have tried are free to download on android from google play store. I will never pay for something I may never keep !
Some I deleted nearly as soon as I had put them on the phone. Others I have kept on my phone. ! A lot have similar themes in them, & I have got so many books and videos & youtube covers everything these days, that I don’t need to waste so much space on my phone.( sorry for the quality of the pictures. They are all taken from my phone).
Apps I Will Be Reviewing
MASSAGE TECHNIQUES VIDEOS by XODEVELOPERS in the section HEALTH & FITNESS.
Rating 4.2 stars from 19 reviews
This is a tutorial video app covering many types of massage : SPORT MASSAGE, INFANT MASSAGE, DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE, BACK MASSAGE, PREGNANCY MASSAGE, HOT STONE MASSAGE, SWEDISH MASSAGE, SHIATSU MASSAGE & according to the developers of the app. These categories are constantly updated.
MY VERDICT : It’s ok the first time you watch it. But on a small screen like most mobiles, you don’t get the full effect.
I would score it 7 / 10.
MASSAGE VIDEOS APP by COMODY VIDEOS STUDIO in the section ENTERTAINMENT
Rating 4.4 stars from 580 reviews
Another tutorial covering videos of : SWEDISH MASSAGE, THAI MASSAGE, SHIATSU MASSAGE, SPORT MASSAGE, DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE, FOOT MASSAGE, LOWER BACK MASSAGE & PREGNANCY MASSAGE. The last time I looked the list had been added too.
MY VERDICT : I found some of the videos interesting, with techniques I hadn’t seen before. I did keep this on my phone for a long period of time.
I would score it 8.5 / 10.
BASIC MASSAGE TECHNIQUES by EXPERT HEALTH STUDIO in the section HEALTH & FITNESS
Rating 4.2 stars from 66
Basic massage techniques ! it is really under selling itself !It’s another one showing massage techniques & how to do them. But is very thorough.
MY VERDICT : I was pleasantly surprised how good this one was with it saying BASIC.
I would score it 8.5 /10
THAI MASSAGE by BLUEHEART in the section HEALTH & FITNESS
Rating 4.3 stars from 26 reviews
Another video tutorial of just Thai Massage, covering all aspects of the massage, with on screen instructions.
MY VERDICT : I had to download this one ! The videos are subtitled in English & this gets in the way of watching the techniques.
I would score it 7 / 10
URBAN MASSAGE by URBAN MASSAGE L.T.D. in the section LIFESTYLE
Rating 4.4 stars from 227 reviews
This is a totally different sort of massage app. This is a app to book a massage at home, work or even hotel.
How it works : 1, enter postcode. 2, choose 1 or 2 people to be massaged. 3, select how many massage therapist you require, 1 or 2. 4, choose date / time. 5, choose near by therapists. 6, pay by card or paypal.
They say they have over a 1000 fully qualified & insured therapists in 3 country’s & they cover all the different massages from 1 – 2 hours.
MY VERDICT : I can’t really say a lot about this app ! At the moment they only cover London, Birmingham & Manchester in the UK As well as Paris & Vienna ( I live in York Uk. too faraway ! ) If it takes off, they need to go worldwide.
I can’t score the app, with not been able to try it. But felt I needed to put it on my list as I did download to try it.
SOUND MASSAGE – NO MORE GLOOMY by ENSIGHT MEDIA in the section HEALTH & FITNESS
Rating 4.2 stars from 1625 reviews
A relaxing music app covering the sounds of mother nature.
This is what they say :
EFFECTS OF SOUNDS OF NATURE
RAINFALL : Stabilizes our mind & helps us to sleep well.
FOREST : Energetic forest gives refreshment.
WAVES : Listening to waves with eyes shut kicks away the stress.
INSTRUMENTS : Indian flute adds quiet meditation.
LIFE : Moderate life sounds can ease your mind.
MY VERDICT : I still have this on my phone & still listen to quite a bit. Normally through headphones, helping me drift away from everyday situations.
I would score this 9 / 10 (nothings ever perfect ! ) lol.
