The Spa’s interior and treatment rooms have been decorated with a combination of earth tones and grey stone with relaxing water features, exuding a luxurious and very calming atmosphere. I was invited to try out the “Full Moon Anti Stress Massage”. At the reception you choose which aroma oil you prefer for the treatment, my choice was ‘Vanilla’, but the other ones were just as good. In the treatment room, it started with an aroma foot soak and a sea salt scrub of the feet, followed by a shoulder and back massage that had just the right movement, speed and pressure.
The “Anti Stress” part had already started to work; the therapist then applied a warm herbal compress all over my back and shoulders. Performed for hundreds of years, herbal massage is known to provide deep relaxation while relieving stress and fatigue. The compress contains a mixture of Thai herbs and oils that have specific medicinal benefits. Once warmed, it is applied with a rolling motion.
This was not only a very relaxing massage but it also had medicinal benefits. We all experience stress at some point in our lives. If you do, I can warmly recommend taking the “Full Moon Anti Stress” massage. It lasts 70 minutes and cost THB 1,600 ++. ‘A perfect way back to peace of mind.’
