Queensland's Gold Coast is one of Australia's favourite playgrounds, so it's no surprise that it's also a great place to get a Thai massage.
Attracting domestic and international visitors all year round, the Gold Coast is blessed with some fabulous health and beauty salons and spas.
Any type of massage is fabulous, of course, but there's something about Thai massage that makes it appeal to a wide range of people.
The fact that it is such an ancient form of healing and relaxation makes it perfect for those interested in Chinese medicine and Indian Ayurvedic principles. It is also very popular with those who practice yoga or enjoy reflexology.
In fact, Thai massage is a little similar to reflexology, in that it works on the body's energy lines and pressure points. This is done not only by hands-on massage, but through stretching and pressure, too.
Maintaining our body's delicate balance forms the basis of many so-called alternative therapies, and it makes a lot of sense. Many illnesses and diseases are considered a manifestation of a deeper problem.
Thai massage practitioners don't claim to heal serious diseases, such as cancer, but they can help minimise the symptoms and free up energy blockages.
What we know as fact is that Thai massage boosts your circulation, reduces stress levels, relaxes muscles and helps more oxygen reach your brain. And that has to be good.
