Enjoy the pleasure of lazy yoga at Thai Health Spa !

-By Josie Wu Translated by Ann Lee

Ever just feel like taking some time off and doing nothing but relaxing? With the hectic work schedules we have every day, there's a place we can all stretch our tight muscles and release the pressure from our busy day. Yoga has become a popular trend for people in Taiwan. Now, through a Thai massage and spa session, you can also enjoy the effects of yoga, but in a more relaxed atmosphere. This type of session is referred to as " yoga for the lazy ones".

Located on NanJing East Road and BaDe Road, Thai Health Spa has two locations in Taipei. These places focus on providing customers with traditional Thai acupressure massage. Their Thai massage techniques are passed down through centuries of ancient medical skills, incorporating yoga moves and releasing pressures from various points of the body. Vessels are relaxed through the fingertips; this technique will also stimulate the blood flow throughout your whole body, which will loosen the intensity you feel from everyday life. Unlike most other masseuses, the staff at Thai Health Spa goes through shorter periods of training. The owner goes to Thailand to find their own professional masseuses, requesting that each one have more than five years of experience in the same field. With a short two-hour session, Thai Health Spa hopes their guests can enjoy their service to the fullest, providing a sincere and comfortable environment. Many celebrities and big corporation owners are also their big supporters.

In addition, the spa's two locations also provide traiditional Thai oil massage service (this is mainly for women; men need to be accompanied by a female.) Other services include Thai foot acupressure massage, moisturizing sessions with Chinese herbal ingredients, face aromatherapy, and nail art, manicure and pedicure. They also have regular discount services. Best of all, they are open until wee hours of the morning so, no matter how busy your schedule may be, you'll never have trouble finding time to pamper yourself ! Call for an appointment before you go, so you won't have to wait in line.
