A massage is a kind of relaxation Sims can receive, which is generally from a massage table. Sims can give or receive a massage to another Sim if the massage table is present on the lot.
The Sims: SuperstarEdit
Massages can be obtained at the Impruv U Pettegrew Massage Table introduced in The Sims: Superstar. The massage table can be purchased on both residential and community lots. If placed on a community lot, it will automatically spawn a masseuse; otherwise, the Sim must pick up the phone and hire one. On a residential lot, all massages are free (although hiring the masseuse is not), and Sims can choose from a Normal, Rough, or Energy massage. On community lots, Sims can choose from a Normal, Rough, or Chi massage, each of which costs §135. Receiving a massage will boost a Sim's comfort motives.
The Sims 2: Bon VoyageEdit
Massage is a feature in The Sims 2: Bon Voyage. It is one of the main attractions in each vacation destination. By default, all Sims know the Swedish Massage. Each vacation destination has its own unique massage, which Sims can receive for §100 or learn for §500 from the masseuse. Learning a massage will enable Sims to give it to other Sims, and get a vacation memento. They cannot, however, teach it to other Sims. The massages are Deep Tissue Massage from Three Lakes, Acupressure Massage from Takemizu Village, and Hot Stone Massage from Twikkii Island.
Massages are given via the Soft'n'Tender Massage Table. Only an adult or elder can give or receive a massage. If there are more than two adults or elders on a lot, clicking on the massage table will allow the selected Sim to give a massage to a specified Sim, or ask another Sim to give them a massage.
Receiving a massage replenishes a Sim's comfort, energy, and fun motives, as well as social which also builds relationship with the giver. Different types of massage have different effects; i.e. Acupressure Massage gives the most energy, while Swedish Massage gives the most comfort. Below is the list of massage effects:
|Deep Tissue||2||2||2||Three Lakes|
|Hot Stone||2||1||3||Twikkii Island|
With Open for Business, Sims can sell massages to customers in a business. Customers won't autonomously buy a massage though, so they have to be offered one.
The Sims 3Edit
In The Sims 3, Sims can receive a massage as a romantic interaction, from the spa, or from the massage premium content. Receiving any of these massages can get rid of the "Sore" moodlet, as well as the wish to get a massage.
From the spa, Sims can purchase Shiatsu Massage (§50), Swedish Massage (§250), or Deep Tissue (§500). Getting these massages will give Sim "Relaxed" moodlet for 12 hours with +25, +50, or +75 mood depending on the massage. The Infinite Zen Massage Table has 5 types of massages. Unlike Bon Voyage, the massage table from the store doesn't have a masseuse NPC, so Sims must ask from or offer massage to anyone. The massage table is free from charge, but the table itself costs §550.
The types of massages from the massage table are the following:
- Swedish Massage - "Relaxed" moodlet
- Deep Tissue Massage - "Loose and Limber" moodlet
- Acupuncture Massage - "Finding Nirvana" or "Pinched Nerve" moodlet
- Hot Stone Massage - "Pebble Prepped" or "Hot Stones" moodlet
- Romantic Massage - "High Fertility" moodlet
