Traditional Thai massage is something that I will confess I knew little about before visiting Thailand. Of course, I had heard about the body to body massages that the country is known for, as well as the seedy association with ‘happy endings’.
Whilst I figured these rumours couldn’t be true on a large scale, I was still keen to find out more about Thai Massage and whether these raunchy body to body massages were as common as the western media had led me to believe.
What is Thai Massage?
Thai Massage is an ancient practice used to relieve the stress in the body’s muscles through pressure techniques and stretching. Perhaps the most unusual thing about massage in Thailand is that the masseuse uses different parts of their body to perform the massage.
During a massage in Thailand, it is likely that you will be pulled around and stretched out. It is certainly not a gentle type of massage and you will need to bear in mind that it will be very different from anything you’re likely to have experienced before. As well as being kneaded by different parts of your masseuse’s body, it is also possible that you will be walked over (literally) and have your arms and legs yanked until your joints crack.
Although this sounds uncomfortable, Thai Massage parlours can offer some of the most relaxing massages that you can find. If you feel like your masseuse is too rough then simply tell them. In many places, the staff rely on tips so they want to make sure that you are enjoying the experience.

Akane Fashion Massage Parlour in Bangkok offers a stress relief service in the form of an erotic lotion massage and body scrub. The emphasis here is mainly centred around a skilful pelvic hand manipulation which would also include the massaging of the prostate. Could be well worth investigating.
Caesars Entertainment Complex Bangkok
Caesars Entertainment Complex is possibly home to one of the better Bangkok massage salons there is on Ratchadaphisek Road. Located on the ground floor just across the road from the Emerald Hotel, the complex has all the appearances of a luxurious hotel and a grand seafood restaurant.
The fishbowl here is not so much filled with exotic fish, but rather with exotic ladies. The suites at Caesars are not only of a very high standard, they also have exquisitely designed decor, are equipped with a sauna, Jacuzzi, TV and the biggest bathtubs of their kind in Thailand.

Kochoran Massage Parlour in Bangkok is similar in style, treatment and theme as Akane. The Thai masseurs here will provide you with an exfoliating body scrub called Akasuri as well as a lotion massage which is then accomplished by a happy ending if you get my drift.
Nyan Nyan Massage Parlour Bangkok
Nyan Nyan Massage Parlour in Bangkok provides you with all of the above, though instead of the girls applying traditional oil or lotion, they use a special moisturising gel called Nuru containing a Nori Seaweed extract which is entirely transparent, tasteless and sensuously slippery.
