Massages have always been my go-to for when I want to pamper myself. They help us unwind and rejuvenate after a long trip, or a series of taxing days at work, they help us celebrate a birthday, anniversary, pamper ourselves for a job well done, or any other special occasion. Not just that, we also know massage can be a medically beneficial practice that can aid in our mental and physical well-being.
My all time favourite for a quick, anytime spa has always been Sukho Thai. Their Thai trained therapists, peaceful and relaxing ambiance, aromatic creams, balms and oils all make for the perfectly uplifting experience.Not to forget the delicious exotic fruits and ginger tea served after the therapy! So what I tried with them was the Hot Stone Massage. A hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated, flat stones made of the volcanic rock type called basalt.
These Basalt stones are used as an extension of the therapist's own hands. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly. The several benefits of a hot stone massage are muscle relaxation, pain relief, improved circulation, mood booster, mental benefits, promotes sleep, relieves symptoms of autoimmune diseases, boosts immunity, increases joint flexibility, decreases muscle spasms and tension. Need I say more?! Not only is it more reviving, but it also provides deeper muscle relaxation. Definitely a a seriously indulgent treat.
