I'm working at a massage center since the end of November 2018 and I can't seem to find the right music channel. I've tried several radio channels, but even the one with hits from the 90s sounds like it keeps playing the same tracks and I can't take it anymore. HP, give me your radio/Youtube/other streaming site recommendations! It doesn't have to be the typical spa music made of nature sounds. In fact I'd rather it wasn't that, since it'll put me AND my client to sleep xD Just something upbeat enough to keep me going and nothing repetitive, nothing that would annoy a client trying to relax... 


AND GO!

https://open.spotify.com/user/starbucks

This has some of the playlists of music Starbucks plays in their stores. I typically find some of their music a bit offbeat in a good way (I haven't actually played the playlists on Spotify, mostly talking from experiences in the stores). In general, Spotify radio stations are free (even though they are technically static playlists instead of actively changing music stations) so if the Starbucks recommendations don't appeal to you I'm sure you can find a huge assortment on there that you can swap between to keep things fresh. Google Play is another option with actual radio stations that change based on your likes/dislikes (basically like Pandora), but I feel like they used to still play a lot of the songs I liked reptitively until I hated them. Lol.

I know I'm late to this topic, but I like Ludovico Einaudi's Pandora radio station, or possibly Secret Garden's Pandora radio station.

I have Apple Music so I'm not really a help with sharing playlists, but the album AM by Arctic Monkeys and Turn Blue by The Black Keys are both pretty chill and have some low bass going on. You might have to screen them for language/content though if that's something you're worried about with clients. Also Tame Impala is a good easy standby. Alabama Shakes too! And maybe The Lumineers.

I second The Lumineers. Gregory Alan Isakov is also an option. :)

Other album ideas:

As I Fell by Curse of Lono

Tearing at the Seams by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats

B-Room by Dr. Dog

Swimming by Mac Miller (honestly, this album is super chill and I think would be perfect for that, but it's still Mac Miller, so content warning, obviously)

Love & Hate by Michael Kiwanuka

I got Spotify so I just use the radios or find really long playlists. Curse words are not an issue, more like subject matter. I don't want anything super dark or sexual. But thanks Sam and Mirth for your suggestions!

in my office we play current songs, like from lady gaga, 21 pilots, p!ink, one republic, but it's like a classical version, with violins, cellos ect.
we jut changed the playlist to this 3 days ago and paptients have said that they like this playlist much more than the old one -our old ne was like soft relaxing spa music

Ok so I totally found a great playlist full of classical covers of modern songs and it's great! It's relaxing enough, but also fun.

You guys can totally keep recommending stuff, as long as it's something you'd enjoy listening to while having a relaxing massage!
