A massage in Thailand typically lasts for two hours and costs between 300 and 500 baht. You can choose from a full back massage, lower back, extremities, upper body, or a traditional general massage. The treatment room usually has a modern feel with light-colored wood finishes and a traditional massage table. The deep-tissue massage is the classic western-style spa that you can enjoy anywhere.
Swedish massage is best for general relaxation, where the body is rubbed and stroked to relieve pain without going any deeper. It focuses on relaxation rather than healing. To avoid being scammed, especially when traveling alone, it is important to eliminate unofficial massage parlours in Thailand. Even if the beggar can pull off a good Bruno Mars cover, that “beggar packer” donation should go to massages, even twice a day if he has time.
Thai Spa is known for its ability to make people feel less stressed. People love the experience of Thai spa: the relaxation, the sense of rejuvenation, and the spread of Thai spa culture to other countries, especially Thai massage in the U. S. and Europe.
A full-body Thai massage is traditional Thai massage which covers all parts of your body.
Thai massagehas no entry cost in Bangkok, unless you go to the Wat Pho temple where you have to pay an entrance fee of 100 baht. Massages are already cheaper than at home, but you have the added benefit of having a pool, spa facilities such as steam and sauna, and very nice treatment rooms (the off-street massage places are rugged, but obviously worth it). Thailand is known for its Thai spa or Thai massage, which is what the country is famous for by many travelers.
A traditional Thai body massage is not what you see in photos or commercials where you see a beautiful lady with a flower relaxing and smiling with her eyes closed. It's different from Swedish massage which is less intense and focuses on specific styles and areas, although the end goal is the same. Unlike Swedish or Shiatsu massage techniques where a person lies passively on a bed, the client lies on the floor and participates more actively in the massage.
