For extreme relaxation, try a lomi massage in Hawaii.

Living in ancient Hawaii wasn’t all sunbathing and lounging at the beach. Growing taro was hard work, you know. So, too, were building canoes, fishing for dinner, and pounding tapa for clothing, sails, and blankets. Enter lomi-lomi—Hawaiian-style massage. It’s often described as being more vigorous, more rhythmical, and faster than Swedish massage, and it incorporates more elbow and forearm work. It might even involve chanting, music, and four hands (in other words, two practitioners).
