please don't use shop=massage for this kind of places.

I really don't want them to show up on a map next to Wat Pho massage 
just because the map creator does not take into account some additional 
tagging which says "yes, it's tagged as a massage, but this tag tells 
you it isn't".

Additional tags can specify something further, but should not change the 
meaning in general.

Think of amenity=place_of_worship. They are all sort of religious place. 
If your map cares, it can distinguish between Buddhist, Christian or 
Muslim. But still it's a place of worship.
