Based on a philosophy that creates balance in the mind, body, and soul; Thai spas practice healing with age-old methods.
The Thai healing practices have been used for centuries now, passed down through each generation and its fame has spread to the Western nations too. Inner and outer beauty balance is what the goal is and every spa in Thailand strives to keep up the tradition, be it a tiny hole in the wall spas or spas at Phuket luxury villas. Thailand has many places you can choose to get massages at, from a high-end spa at Kata Rocks to a popular masseuse in the local mall.
From luxury facials to scrubs that remove dead skin cells, the treatments are purely natural, with uses of ingredients like cucumber, coconut, lemongrass, and jasmine.
Focused on soothing tensed muscles and relieving joint aches, the herbal spa treatments are done by using a heated compress to apply pressure on the aches and joints. Camphor, lemongrass, ginger, turmeric and kaffir leaves are the commonly used items in the compress.
Thai foot spas use reflexology and trigger points on the feet and by using a tiny probe to apply pressure on the focal points, the treatments are used to cure everything from a headache to liver issues.
