Thai massages are well-known around the world, mainly for its healing abilities and unique use of only natural oils and herbs.
Massages have been used as treatments for centuries in Thailand. Invented by Buddha’s own personal physician in India around 600 BC, the Nuad Thai massage is the commonly used therapy for all kinds of ailments whether it physical or psychological. The massage ritual came to Thailand with Buddhism and has been a key ingredient in spa treatments and massages, especially the ones that heal addiction.
Nuad Thai is mainly used for addiction recovery, but it has many additional benefits like improved blood circulation, improved digestion, increased flexibility, improved range of motions and releasing of muscle tension. Nuad Thai can be found in many places, and a typical Koh Samui Resort and Spa will have it too, like Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort for instance.
The usual massage lasts about 60 minutes and the ritual begins with you lying on your back on the floor. Avoid eating a large meal 2 hours before the massage as the stretches and increased blood circulation might disturb the process of digestion if you do eat a heavy meal. After the warm-up stretches, the therapist will then release your trapped energy and after this massage, expect to feel relaxed and loosened up like you haven’t in years.
