Massage therapy has gained widespread popularity over the years and there is little wonder why. Massage not only provides relaxation and relief to muscle strain and fatigue, a therapeutic massage has been proven to improve your overall health and well-being with Thai massage becoming more and more popular in the western world.
There are many benefits to massage therapy including emotional and of course physical improvements in the body. Thailand and Koh Samui are home to countless numbers of spa treatment centres with traditional Thai massage having been a part of Thai culture for centuries. You will find that most Thai people will have themselves a Thai massage at least once every two weeks if not more.
Thai massage blends styles from Asian neighbours passed down through the generations. Unlike the scooping and continuous strokes of Western massage, the Thai massage method uses pressure points, stretching and compression of muscles combined with rhythmic movement where the gentle rocking of your body in various directions can release toxins and stress.
There are many Koh Samui massage places you can visit. You must be aware when selecting your Koh Samui massage as you will find some Thai massage places offer a little more than what you may have bargained for (generally to men, these places often have bright pink neon lights out the front) whilst other Thai massage staff are not trained properly and could in fact hurt your body more than help it relax. It is always advisable to go to a well-run and accredited Koh Samui Spa or Koh Samui Massage centre.
