What makes FLOWpresso® therapy different to traditional massage?
3 Great reasons why you should try FLOWpresso®
For people that love traditional massage – you’ll most likely love this groundbreaking 3-in-1 therapeutic experience. And for those who don’t enjoy the up-close-and-too-personal nature of the traditional form, FLOWpresso® might just be the alternative you’ve been looking for.
In simple terms, FLOWpresso® is kind of like a massage, but not as we know it! Read about the three key things that make it different.
(Disclaimer: for the purpose of highlighting what is different about FLOWpresso® in this blog, the traditional massage gets a touch of a hard time. At The Neuro Bar, we are still big fans of this ancient form of therapy. Many FLOW technicians are fully trained, highly skilled, and talented massage therapists and some clients even combine the two therapies together – including us!)
When you say “massage”, it can evoke a variety of responses. Those who are big fans can seem to melt before your eyes even at the mention, while for others, it’s just not their vibe. It might be the thought of stripping down to your underwear. Or you might experience anxiety at the idea of someone else touching your feet. Whatever the fear or dislike, letting someone into your personal space can literally send shivers down your spine. But for people who don’t feel comfortable getting a traditional massage, you might be missing out on some incredible health and wellbeing benefits.
FLOWPRESSO® FACT #1: THERE IS NO NEED TO STRIP DOWN TO YOUR BIRTHDAY SUIT. YOU COULD WEAR YOUR OFFICE SUIT IF YOU WANTED TO!
Being uncomfortably vulnerable in the hands of a stranger. What is it about baring our beautiful bodies to a stranger that endears many to a traditional massage? The awkward moment of getting prepared and undressed in an unfamiliar environment. The anticipation of hiding under a towel while waiting for the ‘said stranger’ to knock on the door to enter the room. Or is it the sound of the therapist greasing their hands with warm oil, ready to baste you like Aunt Betty’s Sunday roast chicken? Finally, that feeling you get when they peel away the towel to start your treatment. Have you just lost the only sense of dignity you had?
FLOWpresso® solves this entire conundrum. Wear clothes, create personal space (instead of having it invaded), and enjoy the same benefits of traditional massage. A quick tip and FYI – it is best to wear light long pants and long sleeves for your treatment.

FLOWPRESSO® FACT #2: ONCE YOU ARE SET UP, THE ONLY PERSON YOU HAVE TO ENJOY THE INTIMATE COMPANY OF FOR THE NEXT 40 MINUTES* IS YOU
Pining for some me-time? That place and space where no one, your child, your dog, your boss, your phone, or your computer can find you? At The Neuro Bar, you’ve come to the right place. With FLOWpresso®, you don’t even have to hang with a massage therapist for your treatment. Once you are fully set up in your suit and the technician has checked your settings are right, they will quietly disappear into the background. Monitoring your session from nearby, they leave you in peace to sink peacefully into a FLOW state. And here is the best part – FLOWpresso® even allows you to escape from your inner critic. That’s because with little effort, FLOWpresso® is one of the easiest ways to centre and calm your mind. Once you settle into your treatment, if you don’t fall asleep then you will likely slip into a deep zen state.
*NOTE THAT A TYPICAL APPOINTMENT WILL BE ONE HOUR LONG, BUT 40 MINUTES IS USUALLY THE TIME YOU WILL SPEND EXPERIENCING A FLOWPRESSO® RELAXATION OR SPORT MODE TREATMENT.
FLOWPRESSO® FACT #3: UNLIKE TRADITIONAL MASSAGE, OUR DEEP PRESSURE THERAPY IS A DEEPLY REWARDING AND GENTLE SENSORY JOURNEY. LIKE A HUMAN HUG, FLOWPRESSO® CAN HELP YOU ACHIEVE THE SAME BENEFITS.
Lastly, let’s talk about our deep pressure technology. The third component that makes FLOWpresso® distinctly different. With traditional massage, a therapist will use firm pressure to delve deep into your muscle tissue to unravel that knot and relieve tension. This is that moment you can seriously question the level of ‘bliss’ you are supposed to enjoy. To achieve incredible results, first, you must go through a degree of discomfort. This is where FLOWpresso® really disrupts the norm and is particularly great for hyper-sensitive people or those that feel pain more than others.
