Beauty, Hair and Health in Thailand
There is no place like Bangkok when it comes to heavenly massages and pampering spa treatments. Sure, Asia has no lack of such indulging options, but Bangkok is the place to be if you want some rejuvenation.
According to the teachings of traditional Thai healing, the use of herbs and massage should be part of a regular health-and-beauty regimen, not just an excuse for pampering. You need no excuse to get a massage, and it’s just as well because Bangkok could mount a strong claim to being the massage capital of the world. Exactly what type of massage you’re after is another question. Variations range from store-front traditional Thai massage to an indulgent spa ‘experience’ with service and style. And even within the enormous spa category there are choices; there is plenty of pampering going around, but some spas focus more on the medical than the sensory, while plush resort-style spas offer a laundry list of appealing treatments. No trip to Bangkok is complete without a Thai Massage session.
