Thailand day spas

The art of Thai massage has been practised for thousands of years. Traditional Thai massages are designed to relieve stress, rid the body of aching muscles and improve circulation. A mixture of acupressure and assisted yoga poses, the massage typically doesn’t use oil and the person receiving the massage is fully clothed. Thai massage uses pressure and stretching on the body rather than rubbing the muscles; the massages incorporate the masseuse walking on or sitting on the back of the person being massaged to apply pressure. It was originally considered a medical treatment and would be performed at temples by Buddhist monks. Now, massages can be found in shopping centres, on beaches and in day spas all over Thailand—some still using traditional techniques, some mixing them with other types of massage and some offering remedial, hot stone, sports and other more modern forms of massage that have been developed around the world. With this blend of ancient Eastern techniques with more modern Western techniques, Thailand has become known worldwide for its exceptional massage and day spa offerings.
