Working the magic of massage
The promise of a break from tiredness, muscle aches and stress saw me heading towards LesPear Thai Massage Yoga clinic in Bella Vista. Though I was quite unfamiliar with the concept of massage yoga, I thought of giving it a go after hearing quite a few people talking about positive experiences they have had.
Walking in to LesPear, I was expecting the usual setting of somewhat small cubicles, long narrow corridors, soft music and the soothing aromas. The soft music was indeed filling the air and so were the soothing aromas but to my surprise and utter delight the ambiance was quite different. The inside of the spa truly was reminisce of a resort style setting in Thailand itself with low ample beds, frangipani flowers and not to mention the polished wooden beams that added to the "spa" look and feel. The owner Les is ever so present guiding the visitor through what to expect and making recommendations to suit your body's requirements. As a trained therapist himself, he took the time to explain the entire concept of massage yoga to me for a better understanding before I tried it out.
Once my one hour massage began, I completely forgot I was indeed in the busy part of Bella Vista Business Park. The well trained Thai massage therapists at LesPears knew exactly how to make me feel totally relaxed and comfortable while they did their magic that took away the stress and strains I had accumulated from my day to day busy life. The Thai aroma oil massage that I was treated to included a hot stone massage that truly took away all aches and pains, but that isn't the only type of massage therapy that is offered at Les Pear. There are plenty of variety of massages to choose from and prices to suit your budget. The range starts from the traditional Thai massage which starts at $35 to a massage package of any combination at starting at $ 120. The duration of these treatments vary giving you the choice of fitting a lengthy or a short massage in to your schedule.
The spacious cubicles are styled with two low wooden beds, which was exactly what we hoped for as I wanted to share this relaxing experience with someone dear to me and we did so as a couple. Over all, the experience was one of relaxation and rejuvenation. While I was seated sipping my burdock herbal tea, I could not help but notice how popular this place was as many walked in to make bookings as father's day was just around the corner. The therapists at LesPear are busy not only on the premises itself but also conducting massage sessions in and around the Norwest business park in many facilities. Soon LesPear will be introducing health care rebates on the services provided making it even more attractive for the clients who want to be pampered by these well trained therapist.
