After toiling from work, or from any demanding activities, I often treat myself for a body massage. It’s my way of releasing the stored pressures and a not-so-expensive method of relaxing. Usually, I go to massage parlors or clinic spas, or if I am lazy enough to travel, I opted for a home or room service.
There are different types of massage and more or less I have experienced each.Among these styles, I prefer a hard body massage and I realized that I am fully satisfied after a Thai massage. I can’t really explain in details the procedures involved, but I enjoy the part that I am being stretched.My interest in Thai massage or massage in general leads me to different venues. I tried some expensive and cheap spa clinics as well as with the blind masseurs in some shopping malls. How can I forget the Japanese masseuse who can’t speak English – it was a sign language session (oh, the pictures on the brochures helped a lot!). From take of your clothes, what do you want to drink, hard or soft massage, lie down.
Barely two weeks old here in Thailand, I can sense some pressure from work. Or is it just me pressuring myself. And I guess I need some Thai massage. Wouldn’t it be cool to try this traditional massage in the country of origin? There are lots of stalls, cubicles here offering massage. But I was warned by lots of friends and officemates to be more cautious in entering some parlors here. You’ll never know what’s in store for you! Hmm, I think I’ll take it as a challenge.
