Book Massage Android App
From this new millennia technological cornucopia we have got everything, apps that do your homework, apps that make other apps, apps that take you for a hike and now there are apps that give you a massage. Technically the massage provider is not your smartphone but a therapist that can be contacted and will then provide a service at your home or hotel. It is all, nice and high-tech dandy. We think so. But how does it work?

Massage Booking in the Era of Apps
We are not yet ready to give up our bodies to the “rough” palms and hands of the robots, droids or whatever these machines will be named. This is not to say at some point into the future we won’t have our personal massaging machine at home. And I mean one that is aware of our body needs and able to soothe those aching muscles every evening you get home from work. Until then, not too long I expect, we still need our fellow humans, the massage therapists and chiropractors to help us when needed.
However, if the actual service is still performed by a human, the process of finding and booking a service has been almost fully handed to the computers. Yes, it is easy to walk down the street and head inside one of the massage shops or spas. But that usually applies whenever you’re in your home city. Even then you’d probably like to try a different massage type – let’s say, Japanese Shiatsu? But when you’re in a foreign country, a foreign city then your options are limited. And you may not want to spend time searching for massage parlors around town. Enter the modern technology. It finds what you need and let’s you book or contact the therapist you need.
The Apps vs the Old Web
The internet is old and the web is getting old as well. What made the web great is being surpassed now with the use of mobile applications and recently, the use of decentralised apps on the mysterious blockchain. Apps or Application are a rather fancy combination of words to express a type of software that can be launched and used either in an internet browser, on the desktop or “natively” on a mobile phone. While the term is quite general since it’s being introduced recently it also implies that the apps are made with modern technologies.
The mobile apps is the category we will focus since it has certain innovations worth talking about. While web browser are catching up and adding new features the mobile apps excel in sending you notifications. This sounds good and bad at the same time. But considering that you can turn off some of the notifications, they may be useful in certain situations. In our case they are useful when you want to book a massage service then the therapist receives your notification instantly and responds.
Why the apps are preferable versus websites
These are the most common reasons and situations:
- Easy to launch, don’t need to remember a web address (URL)
- Images and graphics load faster since they’re already downloaded
- No need to sign in every time, the apps keep your info
- Can send you notifications when certain events happen
Booking a Massage While on the Go
Travelling is pretty great! Whether for business or holidays it is an amazing way to see the world and expand your mind. And why not, try a massage in that new city you flew in last night and walked half of today. I love the idea of going to a massage parlor to get a massage, but sometimes I just want to relax after a day of sightseeing. Well, there’s an app for that now, and it’s not bad. It is called Massage Booking Online App and brought to you by Massage Open.
The app gathers massage therapists in a database and lets you find the one you need near you. Data is being displayed by city and there are options to contact the massage providers directly or send a Booking Request.
Technologies Behind the Massage Open App
As mentioned above one of modern apps forte are the messaging and push notification features. Since you’re mobile there is the need to get notified quickly. There basically two main category types for mobile apps: Google’s Android and Apple’s IOS. Of course a few others want to compete but they lost the race and here I could mention apps by Microsoft’s Windows, Amazon’s Alexa and the out-of-fashion now Blackberry systems.
The messaging in the Massage Booking Online App is actually made in two parts: Google Cloud Messaging for the Booking Requests and AWS Lambda with SparkPost for the private chat messages.
Massage Booking App? How does it work?
The Massage Open app lets therapists and massage seekers to meet each other for massage services. The idea is that potential customers use the app to find a massage therapist, while masseurs/masseuses sign up to add their services to the list for easy contacting. It’s a simple approach, and one that’s intuitive and quite easy to use. One thing to note is that most of the listings are by users in Asian countries, which makes sense. However thousands of new users are being added and many do list services in Europe and the USA.
Once you register, you’re given a few options. There’s the therapist options that lets you basically write down your details and prices. Then there’s the customer tab where you can put in a public request or find a therapist that suits your tastes. There’s a help option there too, in case you really can’t figure out what to do. You also get to fill out a profile page for yourself.
You can easily book a massage by pressing the big blue ‘book massage’ button. You need to put in the date, time and location of your massage, as well as your phone number. There’s also a comments section and a rating system. You don’t need to put in any payment info, payments are made by cash, no digital transactions over here.
In my experience, there are some countries that seem to have more listings, especially South East Asian countries. India, Malaysia, Philippines and Indonesia have a huge amount of masseurs/masseuses available. All the listings are priced in USD, which makes things easier for US travellers. For visitors in other countries however, it’s going to be a bit more of a hassle. Rest assured though, the database is constantly enlarging.
Why Use a Massage Booking App
Do you want to book massage Android App in 2020 and into the future? With all this new technology that is supposed to be helping us, life is getting harder instead. As we are being locked inside our houses, it is becoming increasingly difficult to do certain things. You’d need a certificate to travel, to get a job, to live. And, of course, it is harder now to book a massage. The massage providers are out there and you are locked inside your home. We don’t promise that we have the best solutions. But you could give Massage App a try. It helps you connect with massage therapists in your city.
So, overall, it’s a fairly simple and easy to use app that does its job decently well. I can wholeheartedly recommend this one, it’s nicely designed and streamlined for use. There’s not much else to say here but you can find out more about the Massage App here on the presentation website. If you really need a massage and want to get it from the comfort of wherever you are in Asia, I’d say give this app a try.
Massage Therapists on Android App
Here are some of the latest massage therapists registered on the Book Massage Android App. You can install the app and contact the massage providers directly.
Massage in Thailand
Massage in Pontianak, Kalimantan
Pontianak is an awesome place near the equator. Yes, that’s right, right on the line that dissects that planet. So you can basically stand both sides on the Earth, at the same time. A little imagination required. But there is a monument dedicated to the equator line. And there are awesome spots to visit in the jungle. Of course, this is not the only place where the equator crosses in Indonesia – the line also cuts inside Sumatra, Sulawesi and the North Maluku islands. What I’ve liked about Pontianak is the calm of the people and the good food. Especially the fish and the many types of exotic fruits. Indonesia is a marvellous country and it’s worth exploring, especially now when the travel restrictions are easing in the country.
Massage in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
We all know the famous Kuala Lumpur twin towers of Petronas. But that is not all what the Malaysian capital has to offer. There are the natural Batu Caves that can awe you. There is the old Chinatown to spoil you with Chinese snacks and then the hidden night markets where you can have the yummiest foods. The colonial architecture is a treat for a photographer and there is even a Little India for those wanting Naan & Dal for lunch. Kuala Lumpur is worth exploring for the old and the new. There is even a high-speed train in the works; between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, however it is being delayed. And for the massage – best areas being Bukit Bintang and Pudu.
Massage in Padang, Sumatra
Welcome to Padang, the city and the region that gave Indonesia and the world the famous Masakan Padang or Nasi Padang cuisine. Situated on the West coast of Sumatra, Padang is a small sleepy city. Tourists could find enough to explore for one day, then heading North to Bukittinggi and even Lake Toba or Westward to the surfing islands.
There are not many major massage shops in Padang, but that’s OK as you can always book massage android app.
Massage in Yogyakarta, Java
One of the main tourist hubs in Indonesia is of course Yogyakarta – also called Jogjakarta (short version Jogja). While Bali has a huge percentage of foreign tourists, Yogyakarta welcomes mostly Indonesian tourists. The most popular attraction nearby the city is the Borobudur temple complex. The others are Prambanan temple and the old town including the Kraton (Keraton) Palace. Jalan Malioboro is a beautiful avenue with lots of shops, restaurants and sometimes street singers and street shows.
I enjoy the traditional Nasi Uduk food in the small family restaurants. And the local coffee.
Massage in Solo (Surakarta)
Solo is not as famous as its neighbour Jogjakarta. However it is an important place in Java’s history. From what I know the actual president of Indonesia comes from Solo. I have only explored Surakarta for a short while but it was a pleasant experience. And the food was delicious.
Massage in Manado, Sulawesi
Manado was a favorite Dutch settlement. The city prospered with spice, coffee and other exotic plants trade. Among the famous thing about the city, and the region, is the very spicy Manadonese food, the well-maintained diving spots and the fact that the dominant religion in the region is Christianity. Today, Manado is still a bustling city though recently you won’t see many tourists in the area. The local government is still waiting to see how the situation plays out. It is harder to find a massage center than, for example, Bali or Jakarta.
Massage in Bangkok
There is no need to explain anyone that Thailand, and especially its capital city Bangkok, is the place for massage. To be more exact, we don’t know how it became so famous – it is possible that the huge number of tourists marketed the massage service more than any advertising. China is also huge on massage but I guess the Pattaya and Phuket beaches look better with massage chairs on.
Massage in Bali
Yes, you’ve been to Bali and you loved it. However, I don’t think that was very recent, was it? Well, I can tell you that there massage centers open in Bali, even now, yes there is massage during the coronavirus pandemic or whatever that is. Most of the massage centers are open now in Canggu and Ubud – these two locations retained most of the year-round expats living in Bali, and honestly probably the most expats living in Indonesia. People from Russia, Australia, Canada, Europe and not only, live and work here.
