How can I prepare for a Thai massage? Do I need to bring anything with me, for example, a towel?
You don’t have to specially prepare for a Thai massage. At ThaiSun salons, we will provide you with all the necessary things. Every salon has its own bathroom with a shower in case you would like to refresh before or after your massage.
What length of massage is appropriate?
We usually recommend for our clients a 90-minutes massage. Why? It is the perfect length for the therapist to work on your whole body and pay enough attention to your massage. One-hour massage often does not give the opportunity to focus on particular body parts. It is due to the fact that doing all of the techniques in minimal time takes approximately 50 minutes. Thirty- minute massages are recommended as a supplement or an addition to other treatments.

Of course, it’s even recommended, but it shouldn’t be a fresh injury that may include bandages. Thai massage has physiotherapeutic properties and it’s regulated by the Ministry of Health in Thailand.
