What makes Thai people so good in Thai massage?

  • Cultural tradition: Massage therapy has been a part of Thai culture for centuries, and many Thai people grow up learning about the techniques and philosophy of traditional Thai massage from family members or community. 
  • Formal training: In Thailand, there are professional schools and training programs dedicated to teaching traditional Thai massage, and many practitioners have received formal education and certification. 
  • Emphasis on anatomy and physiology: Thai massage places a strong emphasis on understanding the anatomy and physiology of the body, and practitioners are trained to work with the body's natural energy channels to promote healing and balance. 
  • Hands-on experience: With a strong demand for Thai massage services, many practitioners in Thailand have the opportunity to gain a significant amount of hands-on experience, which allows them to refine their techniques and develop a deep understanding of the body. These factors, combined with a cultural emphasis on holistic health and wellbeing, have helped to make Thai people some of the best practitioners of Thai massage in the world. 

What to expect from a Luxury Wellbeing Holiday

A Luxury Wellbeing Holiday is a type of vacation that combines luxurious accommodations and high-end amenities with a focus on Spa, Health & Wellbeing. This type of holiday is designed for travelers who are looking to enhance their physical and mental well-being while indulging in a luxurious five star environment. Much of those place are so called 'Destination spas': hotels or resorts that focus on health and wellbeing. They offer tailor-made wellbeing programs with different themes and goals that include (holistic or medical) assessments, body and facial treatments, complementary therapies, healthy (dietary) food, exercise and (holistic) activities. These programs will be tailored to your individual needs and will always include several treatments. Besides nurturing you, a destination spa aims to help you to achieve a healthier lifestyle. To do so, a healthy lifestyle is implemented in all aspects of your stay. A destination spa serves tasty healthy food and little or no alcohol. They organize various (holistic and sports) activities during the week such as yoga, meditation, pranayama or fitness classes. They may also offer workshops on personal development or mental coaching. Some may choose to only have hotel rooms without tv’s, to ensure you can fully relax and focus on your well-being. The goal of a luxury wellbeing escape is to provide travelers with a rejuvenating experience that promotes balance and relaxation, leaving them feeling refreshed and revitalized. These types of holidays are usually more expensive than regular holidays but offer a more personalized and upscale approach to wellbeing and relaxation.
