  • A person. Before I moved cities, I used to see a wonderful massage therapist for a full body massage once a fortnight. It was amazing, well worth the money. I came out of the massage very relaxed and invigorated. Those words might sound odd used together, but it's true - the massage relaxed all my muscles whilst stimulating blood flow in my body.
  • Oh, you can't beat the personal touch - literally.
  • Its got to be a person, preferably my husband who is a bodyworker. Great at Shaitsu, Tui Na, Hot Stones, Jin Shin, and more. He's fabulous. A machine could never compete!
  • Definitely by a person. A machine is absolutely no match for a professional.
  • I've only gotten one massage from a person and it was a deep tissue massage and it nearly put me in tears it hurt so much. I was sore for a week afterwards. I'll take a machine over that any day.
  • Person any day. Machines can't be told "a little to the right" LOL
  • A person. Preferably a man with strong fingers.
  • A person. A man. One with big strong rough man hands.
  • Machines are okay in between "real" massages... but they're no replacement for an actual person, especially a trained therapist. I do like the Migun beds in between my regular massages if I need a "tune up".
  • A person, specifically a professional.
  • I'm really freaky about other people touching me, so I guess I'll take the chair if I must. I'd prefer neither though. :)
  • A person, and I prefer it to be a man, with big muscles and strong hands. Machines are torturous.
  • By a person, no doubt.
  • I prefer a person. I have been goosed by massage chairs in a way that made them damn lucky to be an inanimate object. Even so I kicked it on my way out.
  • I prefer a person with a gentle touch . I don't want to be sore from a massage ! Some of them are too rough !
  • I prefer a massage chair. No hassles of fixing appointments and having a massage according to your needs in the comfort of your home. I have an OSIM Noro Melody Massage Chair which I use daily. Its just awesome. Here, check their site - http://www.osim.com

  • I would rather receive a massage from a person.
  • Even though I have a massage cushion in my office chair; there is NOTHING like the personal touch as you lay there getting those oils rubbed all over your body. It is so soothing and relaxing .... I've fallen asleep a few times. Also; as a certified massage therapist , myself ... I've had clients fall asleep in me as I was working on them ...
  • Massage by anything other than a person, a trained person with 'intent' in their mind to help you, is never as good or even half as good. There is no way that something mechanical can feel it's way to those spots that need touch and manipulation, that can feel heat, swelling, softness, fluttering, hardness, change, like fingers and other bodily tools. I love hot stone massage, but without those personal knowing hands, it's just rocks as a massage chair or cushion is just plastic and metal.
