Thai Massage is by far one of the primary reasons why tourists visit Thailand. In this case we are speaking of the traditional world-renowned Thai Massage and not the saucy type you might be thinking of. Thai Massage is based on using pressure points; the treatment normally begins with the feet and gradually moves up to the head. For a mere sum of 200 to 350 Baht (around 50 to 100 dollars), you can enjoy the stress freeing, tension releasing, hour-long massage.
Generally the massage centers are spread over multiple floors, with rows of chairs and footstalls on the first floor for foot massages. On the upper stairs of the centers are mattresses that are separated by curtains, and this is where you can get the full Thai Massage. They also give you massage pajamas to wear while getting the massage, to make sure that you can be bent and stretched easily. You can also get massages at hotels, since there are so many of these services in the country. You would be pleased to hear that the masseurs do speak some English, while the prices for the massages are generally put up outside the centers.
