Leelawadee Thai Classic Massage founder Ron Wittawas brings an authentic touch to Thai massages. He trained at Wat Pho Thai Traditional Massage School of Bangkok, perfecting his technique at the elbows of the masters before coming to the Bay Area in 2002. During his signature Thai massage, Ron sets the stage for relaxation by first dipping patrons? feet into paraffin footbaths. Once patrons have removed the wax and Ron has foot casts that he will treasure forever, he guides clients through a combination of yoga-like stretches and deep-pressure massage with warm lotions and herbal balms.
Leelawadee Thai Classic Massage gets its name from the Leelawadee flower, a plant native to Thailand known for its sweet aromas. It seemed an apt name to studio owner Ron Wittawas, who's also a massage therapist specializing in Thai massage. His full-body Thai massages incorporate pressure points and yoga stretches to relax both the body and spirit, and they also include a paraffin bath for the feet. The signature massages conclude with herbal balms and heated packs.
