Organic Thai Spa, The Place in Kitsilano to Relax

It’s easy to neglect taking care of yourself when life gets busy. Making time for regular massage will rejuvenate the mind and body.

The Organic Thai Spa has been delivering authentic Thai massages to clients in Kitsilano for over a decade. 

Types of Thai Massage Therapies

Various different forms of massage therapies were developed in Thailand’s Buddhist monasteries over 2500 years ago to help monks maintain their health. Depending on the ailment or discomfort they are meant to address, some massages involve light stretching while others involve the application of herb compresses, heat or oils. 

The Organic Thai Spa offers several authentic Thai massage treatments to aid with detoxification, relaxation, stress and pain relief, and mental clarity.  Some therapies for you to choose from include:

  • Traditional Thai Massage

This is probably the best-known Thai massage therapy. It involves the application of pressure and stretching of muscles, stimulating energy meridians throughout the body.

  • Luk Pra Kob

This is a form of massage that uses herbal compresses that are steamed and then applied to the body and combined with Thai Massage to provide pain relief, release tension, and improve circulation. The herbs in the compress hold in the heat from the steam and release their healing qualities when used during the massage.

  • Hot Oil Massage

This form of massage is more in keeping with other massage therapies as we know them. Hot oils with various therapeutic properties are used to provide a deeply relaxing experience. The massage itself involves pressure and fluid movements along the skin for a soothing experience. A hot oil massage can be great for when you have trouble sleeping as well as its skin rejuvenating properties.

  • Hot Stone Massage

This massage form uses hot stones as heat diffusers to relieve tension along the body. Smooth stones are placed at even intervals along parts of the body like the spine, your chest or your palms to stimulate the smooth flow of energy and relieve pain. Therapists also use these heated stones to massage your body to relieve knots and tension. 

In case you’re wondering, a hot stone massage is as relaxing as it looks in photographs!

  • ‘Moor Spa’ Mud Body Wrap

This treatment available at the Organic Thai Spa combines the best of the East and the West. A body wrap of European ‘Moor’ mud improves circulation, soothes aching muscles and reduce swelling in joints while a Thai oil massage and facial provide a completely relaxing experience.
