Massage to Rejuvenate Both Body and Mind
If there is one thing Bangkok isn’t short of it is places to get a massage. While some of these venues may err on the naughty side, most are completely above board and do a mean line in nuat phaen thai, or Thai-style massage. Regarded as one of the most distinct styles of massage therapy, nuat phaen thai has been influenced by the traditional medicine systems of India, China and Southeast Asia, as well as by yoga. Claimed benefits are many and include relief from ailments ranging from asthma and migraines to strains, bruises and anxiety. There are hundreds, perhaps, thousands of places to get a decent massage in the Thai capital but for high-end stretching you might want to consider Thann Sanctuary, the award-winning spa extension of the Thai-based wellness provider.
