Melbourne has been called Australia's 'most liveable city' and it's easy to see why. From its 'sweet' promenade - made famous by singer Paul Kelly - to its super cool cafe culture, Melbourne rocks!
There's very little you can't buy or do here, and there's a really great retro feel to this vibrant city. It's a case of anything goes, and that's particularly true when it come to alternative therapies.
As famous for cupping as it is for the Melbourne Cup, this is the perfect place to enjoy a Thai massage.
It's amazing how different a Thai massage can be to, say, a sports massage. Any type of massage makes you feel fantastic, right? And sometimes it's a case of matching a massage to your mood.
The beauty of a Thai massage in Melbourne is that it not only treats the body, but also the mind. No wonder you come out glowing all over.
Thai massage is based on ancient healing beliefs and methods and, as such, practitioners believe physical ailments are the manifestation of deeper problems.
Using the body's natural pressure points and meridians, or energy lines, a skilled Thai massage therapist can find the source of problems and alleviate them. They don't claim to be able to cure major diseases, like cancer, but they believe they can minimise the effects.
There's also that old saying, 'prevention is better than cure'. Natural therapists believe that a lot of serious illnesses and diseases are brought on by stress.
Relieve the stress and you reduce the risks.
And what better stress-buster is there than a massage - especially a Thai massage. It's not all in the mind, either.
Professional Thai massage minimises cortisol production - that's the stress hormone. Too much cortisol causes all sorts of problems, including overeating. So you could say Thai massage is great for controlling your stress levels, and your weight.
The way we see it, that's just another reason for booking a Thai massage in Melbourne.
