Hot stone massage is a variation on classic massage therapy. Heated smooth, flat stones are placed on key points on the body. The massage therapist may also hold the stones and use them to massage certain areas of the body.

Reflexology, also known as zone therapy, is an alternative medicine involving application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion.

Nuru is a Japanese erotic massage technique from Kawasaki. The technique requires one or more nuru masseuses to rub their body against the client's body after both parties are nude and covered with an odorless and colourless massage lotion made predominantly from the Nori seaweed. The word originates from the Japanese language and means "slippery / smooth." Nuru practitioners use an odorless and tasteless massage lotion which is derived from seaweed leaves, sometimes referred to as "nuru gel" in English. The gel is applied by hand to the entire body of both client and masseuse. During the massage, participants will try to get the widest possible physical contact, the masseuses often using their entire body on the person to be treated. Strong tactile sensations are triggered that are designed to relieve stress.
Nuru massages are legal, along with other forms of sex work, in rural areas in Nevada, US. Often, Nuru massages are finished with a sexual act.
