We’ll be honest. Thai massage tops our list of favourite massage treatments. And we’re not alone: Thai is becoming one of the most popular types of massage at spas across the world. That’s because stretching feels good and relieves pain– especially when a trained Thai massage therapist who knows what they are doing performs it.
Considered a medical treatment in Thailand, Thai massage is sometimes referred to as “lazy man’s (or woman’s) yoga” because it resembles a series of assisted yoga poses. Basically, your therapist guides you through a series of stretches across your entire body.
During your massage, you lie on a comfortable floor mat or on a massage table wide enough to accommodate your therapist and yourself. A traditional Thai massage also incorporates Ayurvedic principals and acupressure said to release blockages along energy lines.
