(or how to overcome the pervasive macaques of the Klongkone Mangrove Conservation Centre!), time to relax (lololol!). I try whenever I can different massages: I remain an absolute unconditional of intensive traditional Thai massage!
Especially without oil nor any wellness marketing blablabla! Therapeutic, it worked on stretching. Not always pleasant for and sometimes even really painful for those muscles that I never do work!
The next day, it is a bless, the body relaxes as relieved of its weight. Especially when you have back problem. Believe me, I have back problem, because of the heavy camera equipment … not to mention the laptop, jetlag, stress and all the rest! Modern life!
Impossible for me not to experience Thai massage in the nicely decorated spa of the Baan Amphawa Resort & Spa (pictures 1, 2 and 3). A charming hotel where we spend tonight (rooms need to be renovated, but lovely breakfast). Not necesseray to mention that in Amphawa, there is not a plethora of hotels!
Upon arrival at the spa, you will feel pampered. Immediately my masseuse leads me to a large room, with tobacco walls and comfortable dark wood floors, all is calm. Too bad that the air conditioning is too strong, as always in hot countries!
After worn an unmatched comfort Thai fisherman pants with a beige linen blouse, my masseuse magically reappears. And then we move on to serious business: THE massage!
After a painful intense work on muscle tensions, the massage becomes more fluid and I dozed. When a sweet voice wakes me up to offer me a cup of jasmine tea, it’s over!
The massage lasted an hour and I am completely woozy, ready to jump into my bed to sleep the next 48 hours! Back to reality Mademoiselle Le K! Forget it immediately: tonight is Visakha Bucha Day, the celebration of the birth, enlightenment and entry into Nirvana of Buddha.
