Sha-Ba Wellness & Spa
Born in a small village in the mountains of Thailand, Tanatnan Chaipang struggled through a series of health difficulties that stemmed from a life-threatening illness, a congenital foot disorder, and multiple car accidents. Fortunately, her grandmother was the town healer and midwife, helping Tanatnan manage her pain, as well as steer her toward a healthy lifestyle. Through this work with her grandma, she saw the benefits of massage first hand, spurring her toward an eventual career where she’d be able to pass these benefits on to others. After becoming certified as a massage therapist in Madison and honing her skills in her native Thailand, Tanatnan finally realized her goal and opened Sha-Ba Wellness & Spa.
Today, she works with a staff to perform bodywork that not only relaxes patients, but also helps them heal and hopefully find relief from any lingering pains. They combine elements of Eastern techniques, such as Thai massage and Chinese tui-na, with Western modalities that include sports and Swedish massage. They also provide chair massage, foot reflexology, and ion footbaths, which work to cast out harmful toxins and absorbed sock lint.
