There are so many ways to indulge and pamper ourselves that sometimes knowing where to begin can lead to even more stress. Spa treatments are the perfect way to unwind. Therefore, make your decision making process a little easier by making the Northern Style Thai Massage Spa the next place you visit for a luxurious body or massage treatment. This unassuming authentic Thai massage parlour is nestled in the back streets of New Farm within walking distance of New Farm Park. It is the perfect location for a mini getaway in the heart of bustling Brisbane city.
Slip into a more relaxed state of mind when you visit this spa.
Feel your worries and stresses melt away as soon as you enter the Northern Style Thai Massage Spa. In mere moments you will be transported to a place of inner calm and serenity. Upon arrival the wonderful therapists Thong, Pha and Nan will warmly welcome you into the beautifully decorated parlour. Having adjusted to your surroundings over a refreshing glass of water, you are then guided into a room according to your requested treatment or therapy. Each room is ambient in its own special way, and ensures you have everything you could possibly need to fully enjoy your treatment.
The parlour offers a range of spa body and massage treatments. However, don't expect the usual variety as this is an authentic Thai massage parlour. Spa body treatments include a mud wrap, soybean honey mask and scrub, an Aloe Vera mask and a Siam steam. Additionally, you can choose from a couple of hair treatments including an essential oil hair care and a scalp massage without the use of oil. All the treatments are designed to rejuvenate and restore the body. All you need to do is pick the treatment that best suits you and enjoy.
Immerse yourself in your surroundings and enjoy everything this centre has to offer.
Alternatively, the range of massage treatments include a Northern Thai massage, Siam blend massage, sports massage, hot stone massage and a feet and leg massage. Once again all you need to do is pick the therapy that you feel you need and leave the rest to the very friendly yet professional and highly experienced therapists. I have tried the Northern Thai massage, the Siam blend massage and the hot stone massage and highly recommend all three. However, while they are all fabulous they are very different. Therefore, take some time to figure out what your body and mind need first.
Choose the therapy that best suits you and your needs.
The Northern Thai massage I had here was reminiscent of a massage I experienced once while holidaying in Thailand. My first ever Northern Thai massage was a complete shock as I walked in expecting a typical passive style massage. I can assure you that this is not the case. Prepare yourself for an invigorating and dynamic massage session that will definitely change your ideas of holistic therapies.
Northern Thai massage is an interactive experience, whereby you work with the therapist to relieve muscle stiffness and soreness. Think yoga meets massage. You are provided with loose clothing, specially designed for this session, which enables freedom of movement. Basically the therapist stretched and manipulated my muscles while simultaneously applying pressure to trigger points and places of tightness and soreness. Essentially, the therapy aims to improve mobility and flexibility. I felt energised and invigorated afterwards.
Alternatively, if you would prefer something a little more relaxing you can always choose the Siam blend massage or the hot stone massage. The Siam blend massage is a light pressure point massage that the therapist adapts to suit your requirements. Whether you want something uplifting or relaxing you can be sure your needs will be met. That's what I love about this place; the therapists are also attune to individual requirements and adapt the therapy to suit their clients' needs. You are ensured a tailored treatment to suit you, even if you aren't sure what that is when you first walk in.
Each therapy room offers a peaceful space to unwind.
Finally, the hot stone massage is also an amazing experience. It provides a completely different sensation to that of a "normal" massage. Hot stones are placed on your body in order to provide a heated focal point that induces muscular relaxation. The stones are used instead of the therapist's hands to massage the muscles and relieve any soreness or tightness. It is an unusual sensation but I found it to be highly effective in achieving therapeutic results. Whatever you select from the menu of therapies; you can expect a sense of deep calm, which you can then ponder over a relaxing cup of Thai green tea afterwards.
Visit this massage spa for a restorative experience.
From the moment you walk in, this spa provides you with an opportunity to tap into a state of physical, mental and emotional relaxation. I do like to try different places out, but I find that this centre gives me a more holistic experience than any other spa I have been to in Brisbane. Every time I visit Thong, Pha and Nan I always feel welcome and never feel rushed. This is truly a space within which you can unwind, indulge the senses and relinquish any physical or mental concerns. You know you are in experienced hands and while the outcome may vary, it will always be a positive and uplifting one.
