Thai Massage


Wooootttt!! It's my day off today!  At last, I was satisfied with how I spend my day off. I'd been complaining to my friends and colleagues that I always never feel my day off because normally my day off is what we call as, "sleeping day off".  Something like when you are from night shift, then the following day is your day off and the next day you have to report on an earlier shift.  This kind of day off will not allow you to do anything but just to spend your day on bed.

Well today, I feel okay with my day off.  I spend it alone as my staff who is also my friend is on duty.  I had quite a long sleep in the morning.  After washing my clothes and cleaning the room in the afternoon, I had the chance to enjoy a long warm bath and had my nails done at a salon nearby.  Then, i decided to go and get some "Thai massage" at a spa located inside a hotel which is just walking distance from my place.  It's actually my second time to get a "Thai massage" from the same place.  I used to get a Vietnam massage in my old place as it is located near the Vietnam boarder.  I used to love the Vietnam massage especially that "hot stone" treatment.  However, I think I'm liking Thai massage more.

Thai massage is same like a "dry massage" as no oil is being applied.  The client receives the massage with clothes on although it's preferable to use loose clothes and comfortable shorts.  This kind of massage uses more of body stretching and a deep massage where strong pressure is being applied. You wil be asked to do different "yoga" positions and the masseur usually use her hands, elbows and even knees to apply firm rhythmic pressures.

I choose the one and a half hour massage and I think this "duration" is the most ideal. The masseur started to work on my feet up to my legs, arms, back and the last one is the head.  I really feel like my pains in the body were gone after the treatment.  I guess, this is perfect for those people who seldom exercise.  In this Thai massage, all your joints will be stretched.  In Thai massage, they follow some "sen lines" or otherwise known as "meridians" along your body. 

I think I will get this more often.. It's a traditional massage that's not only relaxing but energizing.

  3. I've been curious of the Thai massage though it makes me curious how they will do it without oil. I'll make sure to try this method at least once.

  7. Having time to oneself is definitely a treat! I don't think I like Thai massage, I like using oil. :-)

  8. I always love a good massage. Maybe because it helps me relax and beat the stress having to work in a BPO Industry and being a writer/poet at the same time.
