Mostly, people expect to relieve tension, improve flexibility, and a release of blocked energy.

The masseuse will use their hands and elbow to apply firm rhythmic pressure on your legs , feet or back. They may also pull fingers, toes, ears, cracking the knuckles, walking on your back and twist your body into many different positions.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][vc_single_image image=”3294″ css_animation=”fadeInUp” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”yes” img_link_target=”_self” title=”Thai massage” img_size=”full”][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][vc_column_text]

Racchasamnak (Royal Style) and Chaloisak are two types of Thai Massage. The last one is common use in massage shop and see in ascription in Wat Pho.

Many people know and use Thai massage very well. For those who never participate with Thai massage before,  a few Thai word before might be a great help if you want to join Thai Massage in Thailand.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][vc_single_image image=”3293″ css_animation=”fadeInUp” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”yes” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”full”][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][vc_column_text]

Where is a good massage place?

There are many places that you can get massage service. It depends on you budget and time.

1.  Bangkok – a few places that I have used before and the local rate –Body tune ( Paholyothin and Silom road). Many thai people go to Health Land.

2.  Hotel service – Many hotels offer massage service, the rate and ambient is a high service standard. For five star hotel service for example, the Oriental , Banyan tree and Shangrila Hotel,  advance booking is highly recommended. If you go there, you do not need to worry about language barriers.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][vc_single_image image=”3292″ css_animation=”fadeInUp” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”yes” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”full” title=”Thai Spa and Massage”][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][vc_column_text]3.  Spa shop – Tria at Piyawet hospital, Oasis spa and Divana Spa are very good reputation and excellent ambient.
