There are many reasons why you might choose Bodhi Thai Massage and Day Spa in South Yarra for your next natural therapy treatment, the first being the name. It is said that Siddhartha Gautama or Buddha, the spiritual teacher and founder of Buddhism, achieved spiritual enlightenment whilst sitting beneath the Bodhi tree.
Spa owner Pearl and her team of qualified massage therapists strive to help clients achieve that perfect mind and body balance in this busy world. Pearl comes from a Buddhist village which dates back 2000 years. When she moved to Australia she felt the perception of traditional Thai massage was misunderstood and there was a lack of quality.
With her focus on meeting every client's individual needs, Pearl trains her therapists in authentic Thai massage. Using techniques said to originate from Buddha's physician Shivago Komarapaj, the goal is to clear the client's meridian lines and energy flow to improve their physical and emotional health.
The combination of healing energy and acupressure techniques may relieve discomfort from muscular pain, shoulder stiffness, foot soreness, headaches and stress-related conditions. Choose from a range of professional massage therapies, including Thai, Aromatherapy, Deep Tissue, Reflexology and Couples Massage.
Bodhi Thai also gives back to the community by selling handmade artisan bags from Thailand's north, with ten percent of profits going back to the community.
