There are may different establishments around the city that offer walk in massages. Therefore which establishment is the cheapest and still manages to maintain high quality standards? Following on from the success of this question to WeekendNotes' Sydney based readers; now it is Melbourne's turn. So just exactly where is Melbourne's best cheap massage?

I have found the great Thai massages at Vigorous (located on both ends of Bourke Street - just before and after Bourke Street Mall, and also in Fitzroy) really relaxing even though there is only a curtain separating you and another client. The ambience is simple but rather inviting, thus making the massage experience a worthwhile investment in more ways than one. The massages feel invigorating and they still minimise and eliminate any 'knots' in your body depending on how often you go.

There is another establishment in Collins Street within the Oaks on Collins complex, and for the life of me, I cannot recall the name of this establishment. For only $49, you receive a one hour quality Thai massage. While you may fell a little sore during the treatment, you will most certainly feel like your on top of the world once the session has ended. You are welcomed with a 15 minute foot soak, ensuring that you feel totally and completely relaxed and then you are taken to your private sanctuary on a shiatsu mat with comfortable cotton clothes to change into for the treatment.

Now its over to you. Where have you found the cheapest massages within Melbourne that do not compromise on quality? Would love to hear more about it from you.

I use Resilience Massage and Training Chapel Street. Chris charges $70 an hour, fully certified (Aus) and covered by my insurance provider.
Great for sports injuries, (I use them for chronic pain and rehabilitation from impact trauma but friends I've recommended them to have had good experience fixing training related injuries).
As a queer woman I find the vibe very relaxed, welcoming, inclusive and professional. Chris is definitely the most knowledgeable massage therapist I've come across. He also provides stretch/exercise sets for working on at home, to stabilise and strengthen the rehabilitated area.

In Highett (Melbourne Bayside) the best massage I have ever experienced is offered by JJ. Call for an appointment on 0400 615 317. This therapist works from a private home studio and you will not find a better massage anywhere, full stop. Don't believe me, I don't care but you have heard it first from me right here.

I usually go to True Thai Massage in CBD. The quality is very high and the price is quite reasonable. Highly recommended!

I've been going to Sense of 5 Massage twice a month or more for over one year and have found their service to be fantastic. A 1hr massage is around $75 but then there is complimentary foot spa and tea prior to starting followed by more tea and a slice of yummy pineapple dusted with spices upon completion. The only downside would be that the spa can become a bit noisy at times as rooms are separated by curtains. Sense of 5 is located on 222 Russell Street between Little Bourke and Londsdale.
