Beauty World Thai Massage

Two weeks ago, I have been invited to try Thai Massage at 'Beauty World Thai Massage. I have never embarked on a full 60 minutes journey of Traditional Thai Massage Aroma Oil Massage and thus I'm feeling scared and excited. All the therapists are Thai and most of them could even speak Chinese. Other than just the Traditional Thai Massage, they also provide post natal massage, slimming massage, foot reflexology. 
Price:
Full Body Massage 
45 minutes - $40
1 hour - $48
11/2 hours - $68
2 hours - $90
Neck and Shoulder 
30 minutes - $30

So what exactly is Thai Massage?
Thai Massage combines the elements of yoga and traditional massage techniques which include pressing, rolling and stretching. My therapist started on my back then slowly proceed to my feet and hand - stretching, massaging. Just to add, Thai massage is beneficial to most people as it increases flexibility, release tension in the muscles and joints, improves posture as well as beneficial for headaches, back pain and insomnia. 


Upon stepping in the place, all the therapists were occupied and I had to wait for about 5 minutes till my turn. I was told to lie flat on the mattress with the  cover blanket provided only. 


These are some procedures that my therapist did and I feel pretty 'SHIOK'. However, when it proceeds to my shoulder I could experience pain. The therapist told me that I've very stiff shoulder so I believe she was doing a deep tissue massage for me. Deep tissue massage focuses on the realigning deeper layers of muscles which will be helpful for my chronically tense and contracted area like my shoulder. Prolong carrying heavy bag or using computer for too long could then result in having stiff shoulder. I tried to tolerate the pain and indeed what started as an intense therapy that nearly brings me to tear, surprisingly the pain began to reduce after repeatedly massage. 

My verdict:
Overall, my therapist (lady boss) is friendly and skillful. Although my shoulder feel slightly pain for about 2 days after the massage, I had a pretty good sleep that day. This massage is a great way to unwind especially after any demanding sports.
