Please note, there are rules for being a professional masseuse. These apps won’t give you that certification. You can read more about the laws for being a practicing masseuse (at least in the United States) by reading this link. This is for educational purposes, not for professional use.
Google Play Books (or any other e-reader platform)
Price: Free / Book prices vary
Google Play Books is an ebook store. You can buy all kinds of books. That includes fiction, non-fiction, and instructional guides. Yes, that includes massage books, masseuse instruction, and other books like that. Google Play Books is probably your best bet as an Android owner. However, Amazon’s Kindle platform, Barnes&Noble’s Nook platform, and others have many of the same books. It all depends on what platform you prefer and possibly what e-reader devices you have laying around.
Massage Body Spots
Massage Body Spots is one of the basic massage apps. It won’t show you any unique techniques or anything like that. However, it does have a decent library of pressure points and spots to actually massage. Some of it isn’t accurate information. Still, it’s not bad to have some extra knowledge at your disposal. The app is also totally free with no in-app purchases. There are some advertisements, though.
Price: Free / Course costs vary
Udemy is an educational app. It features tons of online crash courses for a lot of various topics. Yes, that includes massages. It features several courses on the subject, including basic massage techniques, couples massage techniques, and more. The app gives you access to the lectures, notes, etc for the course. You can also interact with Udemy on their website the same way you can on the app. That cross-platform support is appreciated and useful for learning. The app is free to download. Courses usually cost money, but usually not that much.
Urban Massage is one of the newer massage apps. It works like similar apps such as Soothe. You hire masseuses to come give you a massage. You can book up to two at once for couple’s massages. It also offers different people for different types, including pregnancy, deep tissue, sports, and others. Google Maps can give you this kind of info too, but Urban Massage works really well for people who get massages frequently. The app is free, but obviously massages will cost money.

YouTube is good for almost everything. That includes massage tips, tricks, tutorials, how-tos, and more. There are a variety of channels and videos that tackle the subject.

However, it’s more than good enough for giving your significant other a better massage. YouTube is totally free to use with ads. You can get YouTube Premium for $12.99 per month to get rid of ads, enable background play, and more. It’s great, as usual.
