Beauty & Wellness Trend is a major fashion topic in Thailand at the moment. Having a good-looking personality basically starts with a healthy body that shines through naturally glowing skin. To put it simply, external beauty comes shining from inside out or merely to have a well-balanced body.
As a question arises whether going to a spa can really give your body relief from pain and spiritual healing, the answer lies within the art and science of spa and body therapy involving the five senses: Sight, Touch, Hearing, Smell and Taste. Starting off with ‘Sight’, a spa center usually decked out in calming colors with the use of natural materials into interiors. While ‘Taste’ relates to serving a cup of hot herbal drink as a welcoming drink and after a spa treatment. ‘Smell’ comes from Thai aromatic plants which gives a powerful first impression that lasts long. Following is ‘Hearing’, playing relaxing spa music helps to create an ambience of relaxation and meditation. Last but not least, ‘Touch’ from the massage therapists, who will apply gentle or strong pressure to the muscles and joints of your body to soothe pain and tension.
To make it even more relevant, anyone has been to the spa shall know how it feels. It’s nothing but the absolute relaxation that keeps you going back through it again. To the international rankings, Thai spa is as famed as Thai cuisine, the latter has already joined the rank and surely that Thai spa will soon become a star of International Wellness and Spa Industry.
