Massages in Phuket are well-known around the world., not just the sexual ones either. A traditional Thai massage is both relaxing and healthy and considered a type of therapeutic healer based on ancient medicine. Massage spas and parlors that provide Thai, oil, foot ad herbal massages can be found in abundance everywhere. Prices vary but Thai or foot massages will cost about 200 Baht per hour, while an oil massage starts at 300 Baht per hour and goes up from there. Two hour sessions are always recommended with any type of massages in Phuket to really receive all of the benefits. It should be noted that a traditional Thai massage is considered a therapeutic practice and should never be confused with a body massage (soapy massage) that is characterized as an erotic event with lots of soapy water to provide relaxation and a happy ending.
Full body massages in Phuket are known best as soapy massages. The soapy term often just refers to the body-to-body action so all the parts of your masseuse’ body massages you, not just her hands or elbows. Soapy means that your full body is massaged in a round of solid physical activity on a mattress.
You will know when you enter one of these types of parlors in Phuket because they will be dimly-lit and you will find yourself facing a glass front where the ladies sit with numbered badges attached to their dresses. The manager is attentive and will help you picking out the right girl and when you decide on a number, she will come join you.
After you decide on the girl that you want, she will escort you to an air-conditioned private room and in some places you may even have your own bathroom. A complete session typically lasts 90 minutes with prices ranging from 1,600 Baht up to 2,500 Baht. Larger parlors will have papasans or mamasans available to help with translation and let you know how much to tip.
