Every zodiac sign is associated with a different body part, which means that this part of the body is known to be most sensitive for them. This also means that even though there are tons of different types of massages, every sign could benefit from a particular type of massage in order to promote health, healing, and relaxation. For example, the last sign of the Zodiac, Pisces rules the feet, so for them there's nothing more relaxing than a nice foot massage.
Each one of the twelve zodiac signs has their own favorite massage type, so continue reading if you want to find out the perfect massage suited to your sign!
Those born under the sign of Aries tend to accumulate more stress around the head due to the fact that their heads are full of ideas all the time. So, when it comes to massage, nothing beats a relaxing head and scalp massage for Aries. Head massage with a focus on the forehead and the temple area will definitely be the most satisfying and healing massage for Aries.
Taurus is a sign that rules physical pleasure, so these people love indulging in a relaxing massage, especially after a long and stressful day. When Taurus is stressed, all the tension goes to their neck area which makes them feel sore and stiff. So, Taureans could really benefit the most from a deep neck and face massage. Aromatherapy can also be very calming and relaxing for this zodiac sign.
Gemini is a sign that rules the hands, arms, and shoulders. Those born under the sign of Gemini can release a lot of tension and stress and improve circulation by having a gentle hand or shoulder massage. Also, Gemini tends to have a sensitive nervous system, so a whole body massage every now and then can really help to calm their nerves.
Sensitive Cancer is associated with the digestive system (stomach and intestines), so they're extremely receptive to touch around the chest and the stomach area. A gentle lymphatic massage that will remove all the build up toxins and stress and get their juices flowing can be extremely healing and relaxing for the Cancer.
People born under the sign of Leo like to be touched on their back. Leos hold a lot of stress and tension around their upper back area, so they can't say no to a deep shoulder and back massages that will release their tension. Symbolized by the Lion, the Zodiac's royals love to have their back rubbed and their hair played with.
Virgo is a hardworking and meticulous sign that focuses so much on their work responsibilities that their nerves and temper begin to fray. And that feeling of nervousness can lead to digestive problems, upset stomach, and headaches. Virgos love a good full body massage, with a special focus on their middle back area.
Even though Libras enjoy good health when their feelings are balanced, they usually tend to gather tension around their lower back. This means that a deep tissue massage in the lower back area can do wonders for them. Pleasure-loving Libras could also benefit from a relaxing head massage because Aries rules the head and it is the opposite sign of Libra.
Scorpio is a sign that rules the sex organs, which means that their genital region is very sensitive to touch. Deep and passionate Scorpios love sensual massages especially on their hips and lower back. However, since they're very intense people whose emotions run deep, they could really benefit from a massage of their solar plexus (emotional center).
Sagittarians rule the buttocks, hips, and thighs, so they tend to have a lot of tension in these areas. Their hips and thighs are very responsive to touch, so Sagittarians will really enjoy long and soothing buttock and thigh massages.
Capricorn is one of the most ambitious and determined zodiac signs out there. These people want to succeed at everything and reach their goals, and the rocky climb can take its toll on their legs and knees. Capricorns will benefit from a basic leg massage or a Thai massage that will relieve stress and tension in their joints and muscles.
Aquarius rules the ankles and calves, which means that these areas are extremely sensitive to touching or massaging. However, Aquarians also have a very sensitive nervous system, so they could benefit from a hot stone massage which can help release pain and stress, decrease muscle spasms in their body, and improve their sleep.
No one loves a good foot massage more than the Pisces! This zodiac sign rules the feet, so a simple foot reflexology massage will be very relaxing and calming for the sensitive Pisceans. Since this sign also rules the lymphatic system, a lymphatic massage with long and light strokes to remove the toxins and wastes from their body, can be very soothing and balancing for them.
