So today I had the wonderful experience of a Thai oil massage and OMG it was absolutely amazingggg guys!
They start of by climbing on your back, YES CLIMBING ON YOUR BACK! (The ladies are very petite so its not a problem lol) this is to get all the kinks and knots out before the massage. Once this is done they get some warm oil that it scented with Lavender and peppermint and gently massage it into each part of your body in sections (Back and arms first, neck, back of thighs, feet, front of thighs front of feet, front of arms, hands and then neck and face). Once they rub it off with a nice warm towel, you are left with a cool, relaxing, minty, tingly feeling on your skin! (heaven)
They show you a lot of dignity during the process, making sure each part of your body is covered whilst they work on one particular section. The massage is done with one masseuse.
As you can see in the pictures, the room is nice and dim with candles lit, beautiful Thai art work and relaxing music.
My personal favourite part of the experience was the back of the thigh massage. I was realllly trying to not fall asleep, its so relaxing and they know exactly what parts of the leg to release tension. I workout a lot and I am also a mother of two and a wife so I'm always on my feet.
At the end of the massage they lean you up and give you a shoulder massage and then literally spin your body around. The purpose of this is to release tension in your back and oblique areas!
Overall it was a rejuvenating, relaxing 60 minutes. This massage is on average £40-80 depending on where you go. Thai massage parlours also offer traditional Thai massage, Sports massage, Oil massage, Hot oil massage and Hot candle massage. I will be trying every single one!!
