More and more types of massaging techniques are being introduced at spas on Koh Samui, and they are beginning to also find their place not on the beaches, but inland where the serene tranquility of the jungles combined with the peaceful ambiance of nature merge the Thai techniques with the bliss of Samui’s natural surroundings.
Some of the massage styles that are available at spas found in the village of Maenam include Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, oil massage and shiatsu. The hot stone massage technique is also quite popular on Samui. A licensed masseuse will carry out the hot stone massage utilising a type of rock that is obtained from the volcanic regions of the Pacific rim of fire called basalt rock. Hot stone massage has the ability to enhance the circulation of the blood in your body and relieve the soreness of the muscles.
Besides offering massaging services, Maenam spas also offer other types of health services such as exercise rooms, herbal steam rooms, Jacuzzis and swimming pools. Some spa treatment centres even have grooming and relaxation rooms.
