Types of Aroma Massage in Phuket

Oil and aroma massages can be some of the most relaxing, because they engage not only your tactile senses, but also your sense of smell, to alleviate stress in the body. The addition of specific scents can enhance the calming effects of your massage experience. This post will explore some of the different scents used in our aroma massages, where they come from, and their unique benefits. 

How Scents Affect Your Body

The scents used in aroma massage come from essential oils, which are derived from various pleasant smelling herbs and flowers. Essential oils are created by steaming or pressing various parts of the plants they’re created from to collect the compounds that produce the fragrance. They are very concentrated, so only a very small amount of essential oil is necessary to create the desired effect.

Step from the Boat into a Luxurious Phuket Spa at Boat Lagoon

A spa massage in Phuket can ease tired and sore muscles after a day of kayaking around the islands.

Step from the Boat into a Relaxing Phuket Spa at Boat Lagoon

One of the most popular activities in Phuket is to hire a boat and tour the spectacular islands of Phang Nga Bay that have become famous over the years in films and on TV. But a day in the salt, sun and wind can cause damage to the skin, especially skin that’s not used to the conditions. Luckily, we have one of our luxurious and rejuvenating spas in Phuket located at Boat Lagoon to provide instant soothing relief to adventurers. 

Making plans to spend the day touring the islands is easy to do. You can reserve anything from a small speedboat to a massive luxury yacht. If you’re staying in a Phuket hotel, the hotel concierge will be happy to arrange a boat of your choice to whisk you off for a day of tropical exploration. Or, you can do it yourself online by looking up one of the many boat charter companies on the island.

Preparing for a Day on the Water

Half the fun of experiencing the sights is enjoying the tropical atmosphere as much as possible. While most of the boats for charter offer a place to get out of the sun and wind, you should prepare to get plenty of sun, wind and saltwater on your day-long adventure – plan on getting wet, wind-blown and sun-kissed.
