Choose Between Two Options
- $45 for a 75-minute Thai massage and Thai Hermit stretching session for one (an $85 total value)
- $79 for a 75-minute Thai massage and Thai Hermit stretching session for a couple (a $170 value)
Thai massage (a $55 value and lasting for 60 minutes) draws on techniques from yoga, acupressure, and reflexology to heal a body's ailments ranging from aches and pains to joint immobility. Clients lie on the floor in loose, comfortable clothing as a massage therapist applies pressure to strained spots and stretches the body. Muscles relax, flexibility is restored, and lactic acid is diffused by the end of the treatment, rendering the body less sore and more pliable than when it entered the salon.
Each session also includes about 15 minutes of tension-alleviating Thai Hermit stretching in three different poses (a $10 value/pose).
Siam Royal Thai Massage
While traditional Thai massage may be new in America, it has been a fundamental treatment in Thailand for thousands of years. The hardworking farmers of Thailand's predominantly agricultural society relied on the deep relief of the massage, which grew out of Wat Pho, a famed Buddhist temple. The therapists at Siam Royal Thai Massage carry on this tradition in their spacious studio. Having spent years studying at the world's top massage institutions including Wat Pho itself, the massage therapists use a variety of methods including packed herbal compresses and acupressure to ease pain in specific areas. However, the centerpiece of the treatment is Thai Hermit stretching. Every part of the body, from the legs to the neck, is comfortably stretched to dissipate lactic acid buildup and provide relief from soreness. The staff also supplement their massages with facials and skincare treatments that wash away blemishes and exfoliate dead skin cells off the body.
