Massage parlours can be found on nearly every street corner of Chiang Mai, litterally there are too many to count. A Thai massage practisionor needs not go into more than 6 weeks training before being certified to massage, even though it takes many years to master. Therefore the number of really bad massages are infinate, and only the best traditinal Thai Massage masters are hidden in amongst them.
A traditional Thai Massage is completely different to the sexy massage that most single male tourists come to get. There is no funny business at these establishments.
How do you know which is the best place to get a Traditional Thai Massage in Chiang Mai?
The answer is easy. There is only two places recommended in Chiang Mai which have master massaueses who have years of experience and will give you the best massage you’ve had in your life.
It’s recommended that you stay at the hotels at least for a night to enjoy the spa packages. The chiang mai hotel and resorts are located out of the city and thus after your spa treatment you really won’t want to go anywhere. A Thai massage can really be a drain on the energy meter at first and you’ll want to rest, after you have rested though you should feel much more alive and feel light on the feet. That’s what the Traditional Thai Massage is supposed to do to you, but don’t worry none of it is painful.
