Wellness Spa Seekers Find Natural Home in Thailand

S Medical Spa

INTRODUCTION Thailand has now emerged as the spa capital of Asia, and justifiably so: the country’s history, tradition, culture, and local healing techniques make the Kingdom the natural home for the booming wellness industry. Given all the country’s other amazing attractions, being a spa haven is one more jewel in her tourism crown.

Thailand is famous for taking what they like from other cultures while maintaining the best of her own unique identity; thus, visitors can pick and choose from a smorgasbord of spa types and treatments. Whether one is seeking a cool, mountain retreat in northern Thailand or wishes to be pampered in a luxury spa by the sea, they will easily find exactly what they’re after in the Land of Smiles – and spas. When AsiaSpa magazine held its 5th annual awards in 2009, Thailand was given the big prize of the night: “Asian Spa Capital of the Year.” This is just one of many awards that Thailand regularly receives from the global media and the wellness industry itself.


WHAT’S SPECIAL ABOUT THAILAND THAT MAKES FOR SUCH GREAT WELLNESS SPAS?

Angsana Spa Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket


While Thai spas have many unique aspects, perhaps the most unique and appealing aspect of Thai spa treatments is the charming natural warmth, gentle touch and graceful hospitality of the Thai people who administer the treatments.

Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas

The most striking aspect of Thai spas that visitors cannot find in any other country is the famous Thai smile and the cheerful friendliness that is intrinsic in Thai culture. The warmth of the Thai touch adds that extra dimension to the Thai spa experience, and makes it stand out from others in the region.

The uniqueness and authenticity of all Thaistyle treatments is due to the fact that Thais are very familiar with and comfortable performing these spa therapies. Many of the treatments now being sought are actually ancient Siamese health practices that Thais have used for centuries. Thus, it comes as second nature to them. Thai culture and the modern wellness industry are a match made in heaven. Perhaps no other country possesses all the natural ingredients – both literally and figuratively – that Thailand has in such great abundance. Her culture is a perfect fit for the wellness spa boom currently taking place. Dahra Beauty & Spa

A DIVERSITY OF THAI WELLNESS SPA APPROACHES

Chiva-Som International Health Resort


Fans of Thai massage attest to its healing ability, especially for the alleviation of headaches, nervous tension, anxiety, backaches, and fever.

Tantara Health Spa

TRADITIONAL THAI MASSAGE Traditional Thai Massage – or “massage for healing” – has been practiced in Thailand for over 2,500 years, so you can rest assured that the locals know exactly what they’re doing. This is an ancient art that began as a spiritual practice in the temple, and is closely entwined with the teachings of the Lord Buddha. Thai Massage focuses on ten key energy lines in our bodies, and massages these lines to release blocked up energy in the body. Fans of Thai massage attest to its healing ability, especially for the alleviation of headaches, nervous tension, anxiety, backaches, and fever.

Silarom Spa


Thai foot massage is the extremely therapeutic – and very popular – massage of the feet, legs, and sometimes hands.

THAI FOOT MASSAGE

Six Senses Samui

Thai foot massage is the extremely therapeutic – and very popular– massage of the feet, legs, and sometimes hands. While Thai Massage balances the elements of the mind and body, Thai foot massage stimulates the internal organs. The act of reading signs on the feet and of applying pressure using the thumb, fingers and hand through specialized combinations of pressure is a true art. Best of all, it feels sublime.

THAI HERBAL COMPRESSES (HERB BALLS)

Angsana Spa

Cool Spa by Sripanwa

The famous Thai Herbal Compress is a heatbased therapy using warm herbal compresses to induce deep relaxation, relieve stress and fatigue, assist with postural problems, improve circulation of blood and lymph, stimulate the internal organs, and generally boost the emotional and physical well-being of the practitioner. Hence the increasing international profile and popularity of Thai herbal compresses. The medicinal herbs used in the compresses possess a myriad of wonderful properties; they are anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, astringent and antioxidant. Accordingly, they are used to treat sore muscles, strains, and bruises as well as aiding with upper respiratory complaints such as bronchitis, asthma, and even the common cold.

OTHER POPULAR THAI WELLNESS SPA TREATMENTS

Aromatherapy is another very popular spa treatment that many visitors seeking better health enjoy, as well as body scrubs, which keep your skin healthy and beautiful through exfoliation. One leaves these treatments floating and glowing, with minds and bodies invigorated, and skin feeling soft, smooth, and healthy once again.

Aside from the above, one can choose from a wide variety of other wellness treatments throughout Thailand. These include hydrotherapy, reflexology, shiatsu/acupressure, colon cleansing, tai chi, yoga, chi nei tsang, detoxification, homeopathy, meditation, as well as a wide range of beauty treatments.

Hot Stone Massage, sometimes in conjunction with Swedish Massage, are two more sought after therapies. Their goals are to increase oxygen flow in the blood and remove toxins from the muscles. The vigorous methods used, with or without the use of heat, leave clients feeling nurtured, totally at rest, peaceful, and serene.
