Massage Angels

posted on | by Zuri Girl

Relaxation, detox, pampering and healing are what everyone is looking for especially around the busy holiday season!

Massage definitely leads us to a world of letting go of stress, tension and simply enjoying touch and sensation. A lucky find thanks to Treatwell, we stumbled upon Massage Angels in Wiedikon and simply must recommend them to other Zuri gals right away! This was not just your typical standard massage, but it was tailored to the body areas that needed attention that day. 

Massage Angels is a modern wellness and fitness haven offering diverse types of massages and personal trainings. Chinese massage, Signature ‘Asian wellness’ massage, deep tissue sports massage, cupping, Thai massage, couples massage and corporate massages (they come to your office) – pick what you like!

An Idea is Born

Matthew, the founder, owner, and one of the massage therapists and personal trainers at Massage Angels is simply amazing. Matthew graduated from the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) with a double Bachelor degree. He had made a deliberate switch from the corporate world to the wellness and fitness sector. Throughout the past 20 years, Matthew has learnt both formally and on the job various key massage techniques. He has studied classic, Chinese, Balinese, Thai, shiatsu, sports and other massages techniques in Sydney, Australia (1997), Guangzhou, China (2000) and in Zürich (2015).

The team also includes Paul Sayer (a Swiss trained Classical Massage therapist) and Mui Suebsom (a highly experienced certified Thai massage therapist).

Zuri Girl Tip: If you have complimentary health insurance (Zusatz Versicherung) you may book a massage with Paul as you can claim a large part of the cost of the massage back.

The Experience

Booked in for the deep tissue massage, Matthew, a very open minded and positive thinker, really analysed the body, needs, preferences and managed the balance of strength, depth and flow based on how the body reacted.

It was the first time we’ve seen this high level of ‘tailoring’ in a massage…He is quite possibly the most intuitive massage therapist out there and the experience was completely therapeutic. 

While they offer a 100% money back guarantee (unheard of in Zurich!), we can’t imagine anyone would need this…we’ve been back multiple times alone and even tried out the couples massage too!

Treat Yourself Gals!

You immediately feel the passion to ‘heal’ the moment you walk in and after a long work week or rainy cold day, Massage Angels is the perfect place to relax, recharge and recuperate.

Feel like no time for massage…Why not convince your colleagues to give it a go with the Corporate Massage?  One of the Massage Angels clients calls it ‘Wellness Wednesdays’. It started in 2016 and happens the 1st week of the month – excellent feedback and employees really feel like the company is giving back in a non-traditional, very much appreciated way.
