Treat your loved ones to some near pain.

By Pommy bastard - 11 March 2009 42

For Xmas, my good lady wife bought me, as one of my treats, a couple of vouchers for  “Foot and Thai”. Due to circumstance, today was the first free day I have had to have one. The place is up near the Pot Belly pub. Unprepossessing to look at, but once you get inside it’s a whole different matter.

The reception staff were welcoming and accommodating. The reception area itself was smart and clean, very minimalist. I was soon called in by the masseur. I had opted to use my voucher for the “Traditional Thai”. I was shown along a row of cubicles, very smartly laid out, and warm, to and into one with a standard massage table. There were scents in the air, but nothing too overbearing. I was allowed to change on my own, then the masseur came in and for the next hour I was wrung out like a damp cloth. It was fantastic. From the soles of my feet to the hair on my scalp, (almost) every part of me got squeezed and pummeled and kneaded. I cannot say that it was consistently pleasant, some of it, a reasonable amount of it in fact was bordering on “ouch”, but it was all-relevant and once she had moved on to the next bit, and my body had relaxed, it felt heavenly.

By god I’ve never;

a) Been so intimate with someone I don’t know.

b) Met a woman with such a strong grip.

c)  Felt my muscles be compressed and probed so before.

I was on the table for just over an hour, and then had a half hour sauna to finish off.

Extremely good, and unfaultable experience. (I left a hefty tip!)

Highly recommended for anyone as a gift, or just for yourself to de-stress. The best thing is I still have another voucher to use! (Then I’ll have to pay for them myself.)

Can you actually have a ‘traditional Thai’ massage without a ‘happy ending’?

As they say on the front page of their website “Strictly therpeutic massage only.”

Tomorrow or Thursday I’m going to use my next voucher, I’m going for an hour long foot massage. I’ll report back following that…

This place was reccommended to me recently by someone at work as the best place in Canberra for a foot massage – high praise for somewhere quite new from someone who is very particular about their massages.

Unfortunately the thought of anyone touching or massaging my feet makes me go all yuck, so I can’t comment from personal experience.

Thanks PB, I have been known to buy similar presents for my loved one, but they always seem a little ‘soft’ for him. You’ve solved my birthday present worries for this year, which is a few weeks away. I might let you know the verdict….

Don’t thank me, thank the missus, it was her idea! And a fine idea it was too.

They seem to be open long hours every day. I sometimes get takeaway from Can Tho ( great by the way) which is only a couple of doors up.No matter when I go there Foot and thai are open. Even late Sunday night.

Are they open weekends? Do they take plastic?

Yes and yes.

Just reading your description was relaxing. Now, to find the time for my own….

I so want to try this place.

Granny 6:07 pm 11 Mar 09

I might get one. My grandmother sent me $50 for my birthday, and I think I might spend it on myself for a change. I could use something nice.

Pommy bastard 5:40 pm 11 Mar 09

It’s VERY reasonable Granny, and, in my view, worth every cent.

Granny 5:23 pm 11 Mar 09

Unaccustomed as I am to getting massages, that really does seem like a very reasonable price for an hour long massage.
