This is a yoga-style treatment that bends, stretches, and relaxes you! The treatment is based on a number of well-known Far Eastern techniques and is often combined with oil. Your therapist will use their hands, feet, and elbows to apply pressure to focus points along the energy lines of your body. Our Wat Pho Thai treatment also includes the therapist massaging your back with her feet by walking on there, if you wish.

Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage is deeply detoxifying and profoundly relaxing. By combining massage with hot stones, the circulatory system is both stimulated and relaxed. This circulatory activity promotes the release of toxins from the muscles, assisting the body in self-healing. In addition, tense muscles are also softened and eased by the deeply penetrating heat of the stones. Pain and muscle spasms are banished and a feeling of peacefulness and spiritual well-being takes hold. The combined effect prompts a state of enhanced relaxation that washes away stress and sets the stage for re-energizing and rejuvenating the body, mind, and spirit.
