Sabai-Sabai Thai Massage in Bad Reichenhall
A piece of Thailand in Bavaria
Since I had visited THE Thai massage school at the Wat Po temple in Bangkok in 2008 – where, by the way, the only remains of a written text about Thai massage in the form of 60 stone boards can be visited – I am a great fan of this kind of therapy. Besides, Wat Po temple also hosts the famous 46-meters-long and 15-meters-tall golden buddha statue. Absolutely impressive!
Since I am a weekly regular in Bad Reichenhall (Bavaria/Germany), I was very excited to have found an authentic Thai massage day spa!
At first, upon researching the studio, I came across their Facebook page, as well as their homepage, which is simple yet appealing and straightforward containing all the important information on it.
Professionalism paired with Authenticity
Thus I call to make an appointment and find the voice message left on the recorder very charming. I leave my details and …swoosh, I am called back reliably within a very short time – just as promised. My dialog partner speaks very good German with an enchanting Thai accent, she is very polite and repeats our agreement correctly. Looks like I am awaiting professionalism paired with authenticity, great!
Sabai Sabai Thai Massage in Bad Reichenhall opened in the beginning of 2014. The studio is located centrally with good accessibility, parking is available (with a ticket – 60 cents per hour…yes, they do have these kind of prices…) in side streets.
On entering the facility I am greeted merrily and I leave my shoes traditionally by the door. I am invited to make myself comfortable on my futon, after I slip into my absolute favourite colour, turquoise, pyjamas.
The studio is small yet functional, clean and adequately decorated, and the employees look well groomed.
Good Technique, Careful Treatment
And then she begins my highly professional and pleasant Thai massage, my therapist keeps confirming my comfort, I enjoy every second of the 60 minutes. My therapist works mindfully – very attentive and diligent – and with a mixture of love and hate I admire her ability to poke her little thumb right there into those spots of my body where the worst tensions slumber…
The finishing touch is a great head/face/neck massage, followed by a wonderful, strong and sweet ginger tea, hhhhmmm!
