So, I'm lying there...on my back...fully arched over the raised knees of the masseuse underneath me. I'd usually have some reluctance about being in this position, being, well not the lightest compared to most Thai women. However, my lady today is not what you'd call 'delicately boned'. But boy, does she and her colleagues know what they're doing!
Anyway, as she's massaging my temples, possibly so I don't notice the blood rushing to my head, and I think to myself, I really ought to give this place a plug.
If you've ever had a Thai massage, you may have hobbled away feeling rather contorted, if not assaulted. Not at Saija...well, not if you don't want to. All the girls there have been trained at the same school and do a wonderful job. And, if you're like me and you like less pulling, maneuvering and twisting, and more of the muscle relaxing rubbing type of massage, just let them know.
Another great thing about Saija Massage is that I've never had to wait while they 'dial a masseuse'. There always seems to be ample, regular staff on hand.
A one hour Thai massage (at the moment) is 160 Baht and of course they have all the usual different combinations, as well as pedi/manicures from 60 Baht....I miss them, and the iced ginger tea, already!
