How to Get a Massage Without Being Touched by People (-Top 5 Ways)

Hate People? No Problem!

You'll have to excuse me. I'm in a rather silly mood and thought it might be fun to write a post about some of the ways you could get a massage or beauty and relaxation treatments without ever being touched by another human being.

So without further ado, here's my tongue-in-cheek list of...

Your best non-human alternatives for getting a massage or spa treatment

 1.) Cats

While most cat owners have experienced furry paws walking across their backs at one time or another, apparently this spa in Japan has harnessed the natural kneading skills of cats, to offer a back massage from a feline masseuse.

2.) Fish

In many parts of the world, it's the fish, also known as "Doctor Fish" giving the pedicures. These feet fish, who eat your dead skin are some of the weirdest beauty treatment regiments known in the world, originating from Bangkok, Thailand.

Would I ever try it myself? Nope! This practice is banned in many places due to the possibility of spreading disease. The fish also have to be really hungry in order to be coaxed into eating dead skin. I recently wrote a blog post on Why You Should Never Feed Your Feet to the Fishies.

Still, have a look and see these fish in action:

3.) Llamas 

OK. Maybe at this point you don't like people and you don't want animals massaging or eating dead skin off of you.  It could be time to send in the llamas.

Yes, Llama and Alpaca Therapy is gaining in popularity!

The first thing you see when driving up to the Life Center of Nashoba Valley, a nursing home in Massachusetts, is a pair of llamas. Around the country, homes like this are using animals—chickens and llamas as well as dogs and fish—in their therapy programs, brightening up their residents' days. 


But you don't have to wait until you're in the nursing home to kiss and cuddle a llama. Now you can also have llamas take part in your wedding. (Of course, this would be in Portland, Oregon... Where else would this be?)

4.) Robots

OK. I am getting off track now. Let's get back to massage, shall we? So, you don't like people and you also are repelled by animals? All right. It's time for a robot roll-call.

Meet Alex, the massage robot created by Massage Robotics.

5.) Weird Massage Products

Or, as Rhett and Link from Good Mythical Morning like to say, "Why get a massage when you can massage yourself?" Hmm. Why indeed?

Here they test some of the more odd massage devices on the market, with comedic results...
