The professionally plying paws at Sparadise Thai Spa disentangle knots and knead away tension with traditional and innovative massage methods during one-hour sessions. To fragrantly restore the body’s balance, the aroma-oil body treatment’s choice of sweet-almond-lemongrass or grapeseed-eucalyptus oil fries up a variegated menu of gentle stretches, long strokes, acupressure, and Swedish modalities. Bodies undergoing a traditional bout of Thai-yoga bodywork are strategically compressed and stretched to adjust muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, and energy lines as the therapist engages acupressure points and manipulates the body to relieve chronic tensions. Deep-tissue therapy aims to prevent injury and promote circulation with a highly customized session of intensive muscle-wrangling and kleenex interviewing, and the combination massage borrows from each aforementioned style to coddle limbs and backs in à la carte luxury.
