Thai Traditional Massage This
therapeutic and highly soothing form of massage purportedly evolved from rishis
(forest-dwelling Brahmin hermit asetics) who relieved the physical stress of
extended periods of meditation by adopting certain postures. Wat Pho is the
best known centre for massages and massage tuition. Major hotels also offer
Thai massage services. Modern Spas
Spas, traditionally, were towns where public baths, hospitals or hotels were
built on top of mineral springs so that people could come and make use of the
healing properties found in the water and its mud for medical purposes.
These days, a spa doesn’t have to be a town built on natural thermal springs. It
can be a place anywhere that anyone can go to, to relax in tranquil
surroundings with a variety of treatments administered to recontour and
rejuvenate the body and mind.
