Massages have been associated with physical and mental relaxation for thousands of years. No other therapy is as effective as massages in alleviating stress and restoring ourselves to our best forms. At 1926 Hotel & Spa, we offer you the best massage experience in Malta to make sure you make the most out of your vacation

Here are our massage offerings: 

The Hot Stone Massage


  • €45 for 23 minute sessions 
  • €95 for 50 minute sessions
  • €115 for 90 minutes 

Smooth, flat stones heated to a specific temperature are used to massage specific parts of your body during a hot stone massage. Initially, having warm, flat rocks placed in particular places on your body may seem strange. These, however, are unique stones that serve a specific function.

We use basalt for this procedure since it keeps hold of the heat for prolonged periods. To deliver the best results, our massage therapists heat up the rocks around 40⁰C-55⁰c. Then, we will put those on your spine, chest, palms, feet, toes, and face.

The stones will leave a calming effect on your body and mind. Heat is a proven medium to relieve muscle soreness. So, the warm stones will help break up muscle tension and give your body more flexibility. 

On top of that, many hot stone massage recipients say that regular hot stone massage therapy has helped them sleep better at night. 

The Bamboo Massage


  • €100 for 50 minute sessions
  • €120 for 80 minute sessions

Bamboo massages are one of our exclusive services here at the 1926 Hotel & Spa. Therapeutic massage with bamboo is not so common in modern massage centres, but it packs incredible health benefits that can rival or even better many orthodox massage techniques.

Bamboo massage therapy is similar to deep tissue or Swedish massage therapy in many ways. The distinguishing factor here is that therapists roll a heated bamboo stick on the client’s body instead of using their hands. 

The soothing warmth of the sticks relaxes the muscles and sends a calming sensation deep into your body muscles. Using bamboo sticks enable therapists to apply more pressure on your body and get to deeper muscle regions. Tension soon fades as the tools deeply massage the muscles, removing knots and congestion.

Getting a bamboo massage can also be beneficial to your skin. Bamboo extracts contain a healthy amount of silica, which boosts your skin’s ability to absorb essential minerals like potassium, calcium, and magnesium.

The Thai Massage 


  • €95 for 50 minute sessions. 
  • €115 for 80 minute sessions. 

You don’t have to visit Thailand to get a premium Thai massage anymore. 1926 Hotel & Spa therapists have years of experience administering Thai massage. Once you try our Thai massage service, you won’t be able to tell the difference between that session and the one you had in Thailand.

Thai massage is an old restorative method that demands slightly more active engagement than other forms of massage. The massage therapist will instruct you to move your limbs into various yoga-like poses to achieve deep muscle compression, joint mobilisation, and acupressure.

Thai massage relies on a combination of gentle pressure and stretching to help the body relax. By stretching into multiple delicate poses, Thai massage can boost blood and lymph circulation. As a result, your cardiac health improves, and your body cells regenerate faster.

Many people shy away from taking massages because of their hesitancy to undress in front of others. Thai massage can be a good pick for anyone with such reservations. Since Thai massage involves minimal pressure, it’s unnecessary to remove clothing to get the best results.

The Reflexology 


  • €45 for 25 minute sessions. 
  • €80 for 50 minute sessions. 

Reflexology is a form of alternative medicine based on the idea that the feet, hands, and ears have reflex points corresponding to various body regions. Reflexology has the potential to calm the nervous system and bring about a sense of well-being for both the body and the mind.

Our feet are the most frequently used, abused, and underappreciated parts of our bodies. They’re constantly moving, which can cause us much pain and distress in the long run. Reflexology foot massages help reduce stress and tension in the feet and in other parts of the body. 

The human foot is a terminal for no less than 7000 nerves that come from different body regions. Our expert therapists will stimulate these nerve endings and provide a holistic experience just by manipulating your feet. 

The Indian Head Massage


  • €45 for 25 minute sessions. 

The Indian head massage comes from India’s traditional Ayurveda medicinal practices. The Ayurveda has been around for centuries, making it one of the most ancient medical practices that is still in existence. It focuses on the connection of the body and mind to ensure overall well-being. The Indian Head massage is pretty effective in calming your nerves and soothing your body. 

To begin an Indian Head Massage, a therapist will apply pressure to specific spots on the upper back, arms, and shoulders to loosen tight muscles. Afterwards, they’ll focus on the neck and head to relieve headache-inducing obstructions and improve cerebral fluid circulation.

Besides getting rid of migraine pain and headaches, the Indian head massage boosts hair growth by maximizing oxygen and nutrient supply to the scalp and hair follicles. It also expands the size of follicle cells, making the hair thicker and stronger.

Cupping Massage


  • €95 for 50 minute sessions. 
  • €115 for 80 minute sessions. 

Cupping massage is getting increasingly popular among world-class athletes and celebrities since it’s a potent method to fight ageing, eliminate anxiety, and take the sting out of muscle soreness. Cupping can help alleviate pain caused by arthritis, migraines, sciatica, lower back pain, and more.

A piece of cloth soaked in alcohol is ignited and inserted into the cup to draw out the air and create a vacuum. Therapists place acupuncture cups on designated spots right afterwards. The suction force draws the blood to the targeted area and kicks off your body’s natural healing process.

Make your summer holidays more fun by visiting the magical Maltese Islands. Stay at the 1926 Hotel & Spa and book a massage session to make your vacation more relaxing and memorable.
