Enjoy a Gentle Massage in Hua Hin Before Heading out for Dinner

Spa Massage Compress Balls

Hua Hin is full of fun and exciting things to see. Surrounded by national parks on three sides and the Gulf of Thailand, it’s a paradise of natural beauty. But even the most adventurous visitors to Hua Hin can feel themselves tiring after a day of touring the attractions in and around the town. To ensure that you’re able to appreciate the vibrancy of the town after dark, have a massage in Hua Hin before you head out to dinner or tour the colourful night markets.

Hua Hin is known for the quality and variety of its seafood. But if you’re tired and aching from a day of touring the sights in the hot sun, you may not enjoy your dinner as much as you want to. You may just want to crawl off to bed and hope you feel better in the morning. Having a massage once you’ve finished the activities for the day will rejuvenate you and raise your energy levels. It can provide that extra push you need to make the most of your Hua Hin holiday.

A trip to the beautiful tropical island of Phuket can be the holiday of your dreams. With all the sun, sand, and crystal-clear waters, not to mention all the activities and watersports to pursue, your days can be filled from sunrise to sunset. Just be sure to make time for a visit to a spa in Patong in Phuket to ensure that you’re able to make the most of your trip.

With so much to see and do and so little time in which to do it, it’s easy to overexert yourself. And this can lead to coming home exhausted and suffering the effects of too much sun, sand, and salt instead of returning rested and healthy.

What is an Onsen Spa in Bangkok Like?

Bangkok Onsen Spas

Onsen baths have been a part of Japanese culture for hundreds of years. The geothermal activity on the islands of Japan meant that the country’s people always had access to hot and therapeutic mineral water. The use of these resources was considered a luxury early on and enjoyed by only the ruling and warrior class. But as the train network was developed across the country, more people could visit the onsens and the surrounding resorts that were developed to capitalize on the healthy and invigorating properties of bathing in these heated spring waters.

A Foot Reflexology Session is a Must-Try Chiang Mai Spa Experience

With its easy access to nature, variety of adventurous activities, and temperate weather, Chiang Mai attracts millions of visitors each year. Unlike a holiday to the pristine islands of southern Thailand, a typical Chiang Mai getaway is not spent at the pool or lounging with a book; rather, days are filled on-foot exploring each nook and cranny of the quiet streets within the old city gates, or traversing the mountains on a multi-day trek. In a city designed for walking, many travelers need to rest their weary feet after a long day and opt to experience the ancient art of foot reflexology at a local Chiang Mai spa or massage center.

Foot reflexology is one of Let’s Relax Spa’s core specialties, a call back to our roots in Chiang Mai and in traditional Lanna culture. Our certified massage therapists and practitioners are trained in the art of ancient foot reflexology, drawing upon centuries of honed techniques aimed at rejuvenating the body and spirit, leaving it feeling rested and restored for the next day’s adventure. But just how does all of that happen through a “simple foot massage”?

What is foot reflexology?

Walk into any spa in Chiang Mai and you’re likely to see the familiar diagram of two multi-colored feet. Looking like a topographical map, this chart identifies the different areas of the foot that share a unique connection to another region of the body – the basic tenant of reflexology.

Based on traditional Chinese medicine and an understanding of the body’s “qi” (or life energy), foot reflexology centers on the premise that the foot is the gateway to the rest of the body. Precise pressure to areas of the foot will produce a desired effect elsewhere in the body, such as the linkage between the toes and the sinuses. These pathways are called meridians, and the goal of reflexology is to unblock these meridians to let qi flow freely.

Not your typical foot massage

To the average person looking for relief in a Chiang Mai spa or massage center, a foot massage and a foot reflexology session seem almost identical. However, where reflexology differs from a standard massage lies with the practitioner’s methods and the desired outcome of the treatment. To start, a foot massage will usually follow a predesigned routine, whereas in reflexology, the practitioner will ask their clients to identify areas of tension in their bodies and plan their treatment accordingly.

Licensed reflexologists at Let’s Relax Spa are trained in alleviating stress and tension in specific areas of the body through acupressure of the foot. Since reflexology is understood to be an alternative medicine, practitioners must go through hundreds of hours of training to ensure that the treatments they administer meet the client’s needs.

In contrast, a traditional masseuse specializes in relieving foot and lower leg stress through repetitive motions directly on the targeted area. With the help of oils, the targeted muscles are elongated and softened with each successive stretch and knead. While a foot massage has its specific benefits, reflexology treatment is a complete therapy working both the body and spirit.

After a long day of walking around the old city, shopping at Nimman, or ascending/descending the tremendous flight of stairs up to Doi Suthep, nothing better soothes aching feet and bodies like a session of foot reflexology or a foot massage. Let’s Relax Spa combines authentic Chiang Mai massage techniques and traditional Lanna hospitality, making a rejuvenating foot treatment a must-do experience for any Chiang Mai visitor.

Despite all the modern conveniences and benefits a bustling metropolis like Bangkok provides, life in the Thai capital can often be taxing on the body, mind, and spirit. At times it can feel like there is no escaping the suffocating traffic, sweltering heat, and cacophonous street noise that have come to define much about Bangkok life. Yet, throughout the city there exist havens that transport you away from these hassles and into a realm of peace and relaxation. Discover the Bangkok spa experience your body has yearned for at a Let’s Relax Spa.

With 18 branches dotted conveniently around the city, Let’s Relax Spas offer the weary Bangkokian respite from the burdens of their day-to-day pressures and stressors. For locals and travelers alike, Let’s Relax Spa has garnered a reputation as the preferred authentic spa in Bangkok. Our extensive menu of spa treatments and massage services performed by our team of certified therapists cater to those looking for complete relaxation.

Traditional Thai Massage

 

Whether you’re stiff after a long week at the office or jetlagged fresh off the plane to Bangkok, a Thai massage will relieve your muscular tension and help you unwind. By focusing on stretching and kneading acupressure, your massage therapist will gently manipulate your body and dissolve the tightness out of each muscle, starting with the feet and legs and working their way up to the head and shoulders.

Let’s Relax Spa offers a two-hour Traditional Thai Massage as well as a 60-minute Four Hands Thai Massage, wherein two therapists work on your body in tandem for simultaneous full-body relief. For those interested in Traditional Chinese Medicine, our two-hour Four Hands Massage with Herbal Compress will unlock deep relaxation and promote blood circulation through the pressured application of a delicate pouch of steamed Thai herbs along the body’s meridians.

Oil Massage

Upgrade your massage experience and soothe your aches with a true and authentic Bangkok oil massage. Differing slightly from the stretching-oriented traditional Thai massage, oil massages follow the Swedish massage technique of deep tissue acupressure, which increases blood flow and softens tense muscles. For the tired business traveler or overwhelmed urbanite, Let’s Relax Spa offers two different oil massage treatments: Warm Oil Massage and Aromatherapy Oil Massage.

The 60-minute Warm Oil Massage provides clients with immediate relief the moment the heated oil is rubbed over the body. The heat from the oil expands muscle tissue and deepens the soothing impact of each gentle knead. Our Aromatherapy Oil Massage treatment relieves muscle tension through aromatic and therapeutic essential oils. Focusing on the body’s natural pressure points, this 60-minute massage will leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed for days to come.

Spa Treatments

Beyond massages, Let’s Relax Spa offers clients various herbal spa treatments, ranging from Body Scrubs, Body Wraps, and Facials, to Floral Baths, Thai Herbal Steams, and Onsen experiences. Leave your stresses behind and be pampered by our specialists in utter tranquility.

The full-day Onsen package at our Thong Lor branch showcases our range of spa services. Through waters enriched with powerful minerals brought in from the natural hot springs in Gero, Japan, the Let’s Relax Onsen experience relaxes and rejuvenates the body and mind.

As a leading spa in Bangkok, Let’s Relax Spa caters specifically to those looking, if only for an afternoon, to escape stressful life in the Thai capital. The soothing sounds and calming aesthetics at each of our locations are sure to create a peaceful and relaxing experience for all our guests.
