Namas-thai!

Let’s be real: It’s hard to unwind without breaking the bank. Spending a bucket load of cash to pacify your tensions seems counterproductive, which is why finding the right massage that’ll rejuvenate your senses, revitalize your soul, and save you money is key to the ultimate mental and physical recharge.

There’s a vast and varied selection of massages to choose from, but the Thai Massage is one that is widespread all over the country. And for multiple reasons. If you’re thinking about trying out a Thai massage, here are some quick things you need to know before you make your appointment:

How Does It Work?

If you enjoy being stretched, you’ll love the Thai massage for its use of stretching, rocking, and pulling. Also referred to as Thai Yoga Massage, the practitioners use every part of their body from thumbs, elbows, and knees to relieve stress and tension from your muscles. Sometimes, the masseuse might even walk on you.

Does It Hurt?

This hugely depends on your pain tolerance and the level of intensity that your masseuse puts on you. In any case, you can ask the masseuse to put less or more pressure on your body and they’ll be happy to do so.

What Are The Benefits?

While the Thai Massage is great for mental clarity and relieving stress, its kneading and rocking movements help to alleviate muscle and joint pain, as well. The traditional massage is also believed to lower blood pressure, enhance energy levels, and even reduce strain on the cardiovascular system.

What Sets It Apart From Other Massages?

Unlike other types of massages, the Thai Massage is done fully-clothed, which means you can veer away from awkwardly fumbling to find your clothes after the service. Typically, it’s also a dry massage that uses no oil, so it’s perfect for people with sensitive skin, allergies, or those who don’t like the sticky or oily feeling on their hair and skin after a massage.
