Without massage oil, achy Mounties have to rub their spines against tree bark until the fragrant sap starts attracting swarms of vicious waffles. Cherish the warm aromas and healing hands of human limbs with today's Groupon: for $65, you get a 90-minute Thai warm-oil massage (a $135 value) at Dusnee Thai Spa, located on the Upper East Side.
One of the oldest types of therapeutic muscle work, the traditional Thai massage combines moderate pressure, careful muscle manipulation, and stretching with warm oils to simultaneously relax and energize the body and mind. Entrust your bone canopy to the highly trained staff of licensed therapists at Dusnee Thai Spa, and they'll commence 90 minutes of smooth, gliding, and stress-busting motions with their hands, thumbs, elbows, forearms, feet, knees, and pancreas as the warm oils nourish the skin and evict loitering toxins. Similar to yoga, the treatment tones the muscles, helps keeps joints flexible, alleviates fatigue, and sweeps cobwebs from your belfry like a champion chimney sweep.
Elegant linens and pillows accent the upscale, comfortable treatment rooms at Dusnee Thai Spa, which rests conveniently in the heart of Manhattan. Come in for a traditional massage, and you'll leave the premises with your muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
- Even for New York, the ambiance is wanting here, but the second the massage starts, it's clear this is a five star place. If you've never had a Thai massage before, it's definitely a different experience, but an amazing one. – Jennifer H., Yelp
- The staff doesn’t act stuffy -- there are no airs put on when you walk into Dusnee…the staff is upbeat, professional, and welcoming. I got the traditional Thai massage which I loved. I must say my experience was great. – saiso74, Citysearch
Dusnee Thai Spa and Classes
Licensed massage therapist Sasighan “Sassy” Prasertsri calls on thai massage techniques to delve into aching muscles within tranquil rooms that brim with draped curtains, lacquer paintings, and dark teak. Ay learned the ropes of thai massage—which combines guided yoga-like positions with pressure from the therapist's hands, elbows, feet, and knees—at the Wat Po Buddhist Temple in Bangkok, Thailand, more than a decade ago. Today, she helps clients escape muscle tension stemming from office stresses and pushy chainmail salesmen by using both these techniques and the steamy relief of traditional herbal compressions. Ay also plies her skills in seven Western massage modalities and spa services such as microdermabrasion, customized facials, and ear candling.
