Thai massages are incredibly popular in Hong Kong and worldwide, likely due to how effective they are at working all the stress and tension out from your body. Of course, it is not always feasible to make the two-hour flight over to Thailand for a genuine, authentic one. Surely not at the moment anyway. Luckily, there are plenty of places right in Hong Kong for you to get a wonderful genuine Thai massage. In this article, we’ll look at several Thai massage parlours across a range of budgets.
What is a Thai massage?
You may be wondering what exactly a Thai massage is, and how it is different from a regular massage. Originating from Thailand, these massages incorporate assisted yoga poses, Indian Ayurvedic techniques and Chinese acupressure. In a traditional Thai massage, you will remain clothed (although the parlour may provide you with loose pyjamas for maximum comfort) and no additional lotions or oils will be used. Not only will you get a deep tissue massage, but your body will be all stretched out via assisted yoga poses to increase your range and mobility. You will certainly leave the parlour feeling calmer and more relaxed than ever!
