Stressed out from work? On this page, you can check out the different massage salons in Vancouver that not only will help you relax but also help you remove different muscle pains. 

We went to different massage salons in the area to find out which ones are worth visiting and will make you feel like you’re on cloud nine! Here are the ones we ended up pegging as the top options. 

How much does going to a massage salon in Vancouver cost? 

Massage therapy is included in the ICBC if prescribed by a doctor. Alongside that, it’s also often part of extended insurance so it won’t be a huge bother to your wallet. 

Even without that though, many massage salons don’t have high fees. Here is a list of the price range for the massage therapy service that some of our chosen massage salons offer.

This place is a pretty known wellness centre in Vancouver. We found that they have a lot of loyal customers who can attest to the quality of their services here. 

As a wellness centre, they also offer different types of massages. Other than getting services from a registered massage therapist at this place, expect an initial assessment first so they will know the type of massage you need. 

Included with their initial assessment is patient education. So, you can be assured that you can take some self-care knowledge home.  

Now, if you’re the kind of person who tends to use cash, make sure to bring alternative modes of payment here as they don’t accept cash right now. Despite that, we don’t think this is a major issue. 

They also accept insurance here, which is great if your provider also allows it. And they have a rather nice online reservation system, which is really easy to use and helps erase the need to call for just reservations alone. 

Pros

  • Offers assessment to personalize your massage
  • Has patient education resources
  • Easy to use online reservation system

Cons

  • Doesn’t accept cash
  • Has a cancellation fee

Customer Reviews

Care about their patients

Every single person in there is such a kind soul. They all care about their patients and have a huge heart. I can only say amazing things about them. I currently go there for 4 different services and wouldn’t change them for the world! – Fernanda Loria Pratt

Friendly staff

Had my first visit at Honey + Garlic with Alexa and couldn’t be happier. They have all health and safety measures in place, the staff are friendly and Alexa was very knowledgeable and transparent. She investigated the root of my problems, rather than fix the symptoms, and I will definitely be going back! – K C

OPERATING HOURSMonday-Sunday: 7:30am-9pm

While we had a few parking issues (the nearest free carpark is pretty far away), everything else went very smoothly here. 

To start with, they have more than 20 RMTs with different specialties, so that gives you quite a few options. 

Moreover, aside from their registered massage therapists, we love the customer services they offer here. To make things easier for clients, for instance, they offer direct billing to insurance companies so you won’t need to file your own. 

Other than relaxation massages, they also have more specialized ones available. Some of their other types of massages are lymphatic drainage massage, prenatal massage, and sports massage. 

After your massage treatment, they even offer patient education so you can continue caring for your well-being with the help of the exercises and instructions that the RMTs here give. 

However, we find their online booking unintuitive – it doesn’t even work sometimes! So, we hope this gets fixed soon. 

Other than that, everything else in this massage salon struck as pretty solid. We think they really deserve a visit from those who need more specialized massage care. 

Pros

  • Offers direct billing
  • Different branches for convenience
  • Has many RMTs you can choose from
  • Massage includes patient education

Cons

  • Free parking is a bit far
  • Hard to use online booking system

100% would recommend

“It was my first time going to Mountainview and it definitely won’t be my last. Kaitlyn was so welcoming and professional. 100% would recommend. The only downside is parking can be tricky but it depends on the time of day. Otherwise, it was a great experience.” – Kelsey Dech

One of the best massages I have ever received

“AMAZING! One of the best massages I have ever received. I booked with Arielle last minute last week after I really aggravated my neck and back. She’s awesome! She really listens and focuses on areas you really need work on. Very professional but relaxed. I love that I can book last minute online – so convenient. Not only is the space quiet and beautiful, the staff are extremely talented and friendly. This is my go-to spot now, and I’m so happy that I found Mountainview!

OPERATING HOURSMonday-Sunday: 10am-9pm

While they have shorter business hours compared to other establishments on this list, Leelawadee Thai Spa has a lot of great things to offer its customers. 

For one thing, they have a great reputation as one of the tried and tested places in Vancouver – they have been around since 2003, actually. Their patrons told us that they love them for the consistent quality of their service.

Just be aware that they have no option for online booking when you go here. Despite that, we love how easy it is to just call them and ask for a service. 

Aside from singles massage, they also cater to couples and have rooms for them. Yep, there’s no need to get a special booking here if you and your significant other want to have a simple, relaxing day. 

As you may expect from a Thai spa, their Thai massage is also pretty good. Even if that’s not your thing, they also have other types of massages that you can get such as deep tissue massage and aromatherapy massage. 

So, if you’re looking for something that will help you get a deeper massage, then maybe Thai massage is for you. 

Pros

  • Has been around for about 12 years
  • Has couples massage
  • Unique Thai massage
  • Offers other massage services

Cons

  • No online booking system in place
  • Shorter business hours

OPERATING HOURSMonday-Sunday: 7:30am-9:30pm

We absolutely appreciate how long the office hours are here. Even after work, you can drop by here and get a relaxing massage. 

However, since Davie Village Wellness is composed of different independent RMTs, booking here might be a bit more difficult than other massage salons. They currently have 5 different RMTs and you might need to call first to know when they will be at Davie Village. 

Some of the RMTs also don’t do direct billing here. It’s better to message the massage therapist you’re planning to work with to know whether they do direct billing or not. 

Now, thus far, their independent-RMT setup seems like an issue – but really, having independent RMTs for this massage salon is also one of this salon’s pros. With independent RMTs, you can choose one with a specialization that fits your needs better. 

And in a way, the different schedules for the individual RMTs actually makes it so you can easily find one that can fit your busy day, most of the time. And yes, some of them even extend their time to 9pm. 

Overall, we recommend this salon for those looking for something relaxing after normal office hours. The long business hours mean it’s usually open even when others aren’t.

Pros

  • Long business hours
  • Independent RMTs
  • Different specializations

Cons

  • Some RMTs don’t offer direct billing
  • RMTs might have different schedules

Customer Reviews

Outstanding Service

“It was my first time with Kyrill Fourik.  Having tried more than ten RMT, Masseurs from different Centres I am looking for a specific massage,  masseur that gets the true tension releasing, stress relieving therapy and consistency.  And I was very surprised how straightforward his techniques were and was the perfect fit for me.  He was able to assess immediately sore parts.  Hits the tight, right spots, very sensual and alleviated my stress, anxiety.  I am a Fitness Coach, Trainer for work and as well as a gym rat (everyday workout) so I really enjoyed the massage.  Kyrill is very charming, friendly, professional and kind.  Outstanding service!  Their Protocol COVID19 procedures made me very safe as ever as well. Clean, tidy facility. Very Grateful!

The receptionist at the clinic was quite helpful and pleasing as well.  I am very much satisfied with the service that I am already their regular client.  Thank you so much for making me relaxed, happy!  Keep it up!” – Drew Guerrera

Relaxed, invigorated, and smarter

“Davie Village Registered Massage Therapy and Acupuncture is hands down the best place to receive outstanding treatments in Vancouver.

Kyle is an amazing massage therapist. I had a problem with my left shoulder from weight exercises. He assessed it and quickly identified and explained the problematic muscle. Not only did he alleviate the pain but also taught me the stretches I could do at home and the importance of using proper form and weights. After a few sessions, my left shoulder was pain free, and now I periodically go to Davie Village Registered Massage Therapy and Acupuncture to relieve muscle tension as a preventative measure. After every session, I feel relaxed, invigorated, and smarter with more knowledge about human body.

Also, the online booking system is a breeze, and the staff are always friendly.

Highly recommended!” – Go Yanagisawa

OPERATING HOURSMonday-Friday: 8am-8pm

Sunday: 11am-6pm

With 15 registered massage therapists in this salon, we’re sure you can easily find one specializing in a technique that you prefer. They even have acupuncture!

Interestingly enough, this massage salon also offers another traditional therapy method: cupping. They also have massage therapists here that focus on that technique, with years of experience in the method. 

They actually have many massage therapists in this salon. However, many of them don’t work here full-time, so scheduling with a specific one can sometimes be a pain. 

On the bright side, many of their therapists here are bilingual or multilingual. This is great as Vancouver is diverse and many may want to speak their native language when relaxing under a message. 

There’s also easy parking nearby at the Nelson Mall. Just make sure to visit early, though, as they don’t have designated parking for the massage salon and it might take you more time to find a parking space.

Other than the parking convenience, we also like how easy it is to book online here and how you can even choose the massage therapist to meet even for initial consultations. 

Pros

  • 15 RMTs with different specialization
  • Offers traditional therapy methods
  • Multilingual RMTs
  • Has car parking nearby
  • Easy online reservation system

Cons

  • No designated parking spot for customers
  • Different schedule of RMTs
