How Much Does a Massage Cost in Thailand?
For those of you who have never been to Thailand, this is a great advantage to visiting Thailand…
Back in the United States, the cost of a one hour massage is between $60 – $80 an hour. In Europe the price is between 50 – 100 Euros.
In Thailand, the cost of a one hour massage is between $6 – $10
In Thailand there are 3 main types of massage available in just about every shop:
Traditional Thai Massage
This is a type of massage in Thai style that involves stretching and deep massage. This form of bodywork is usually performed on the floor, and the client wears comfortable clothes that allow for movement. No oils are used in Thai massage. It is known in Thailand as “nuat phaen boran”, literally, the ancient-manner massage.
This kind of massage is gentler than Thai massage. It uses therapeutic oils and involves deep muscle tissue treatment. This massage can be a very sensual experience.
This is a massage which focuses on manipulation of pressure points on the soles of your feet in a very similar way to that of reflexology. Producing a relaxing effect on the whole body.
Not sure which one to get when you are here…with it being so cheap, why not order all three 🙂
