Bangkok Thai Massage is a sanctuary of relaxation. Upon entering, guests walk down the dimly lit hallway to a private treatment room, part the gossamer curtains, and snug into cozy massage beds. In each of the gilded rooms, the therapists set to work, easing tension from muscles with an array of massage modalities. During the signature Thai massage, they call upon their hands, knees, elbows, feet, and telekinetic abilities to deeply relieve pressure and ease limbs into yoga-style stretches. They also soothe aches with the gentle kneads of Swedish massage, and the more intense ministrations of deep-tissue massage.
