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.)
