Since traveling in south east Asia I’ve become really interested in Massage. I’d never paid for a massage in Australia or any other western country because I didn’t think it was worth it (and still don’t) but I now regularly have them when I’m in Asia.
I’ve also talked to many people over the years about their massage experiences and done my own research and just been mesmerised by the wide range of options available, reasons that people get massages and the experiences that they have. So much so that I decided to put together a little survey to get some data on it all.
The survey is still open but here are some of the results after 45 responses;
The later questions were segmented based on the earlier answers (including the graphs above from ‘reason for getting a massage’ question) so many of them don’t really have enough responses to display here.
I’ve been most interested in the reasons people get massages and people’s pain preferences.
