Thai massage has become wildly popular since it burst onto the mainstream scene a few years ago, but very few salons can provide the diversity and skill level of Venelle Salon and Spa. The spa offers a traditional Thai massage, “Nuad Pan Boram”, recalling 2,500 years of Thai tradition and refinement. Thailand, often called “The Land of Smiles” is known for its love of peaceful and gentle living. The art of classical Thai massage reflects this with a blend of healing arts and pure relaxation, stimulating the nerve meridians of the body with fingers, thumbs, elbows, arms, and even feet.
Venelle has also created a blend of ancient and modern in their Thai Massage Aromatherapy Oil Ritual. While the Traditional Thai Massage is performed on an imported traditional handmade Thai mat, this technique takes place on a modern massage table. Deeply aromatic massage oils sourced from Thailand and blended specially for Venelle Salon and Spa are used in conjunction with massage and acupressure. This combination heals the mind as well as the body, producing long lasting feelings of peace and well being.
Tok Sen is a truly ancient art, dating back 5,000 years and practiced only in the Lanna area of Northern Thailand, which also developed its own style of therapeutic yoga. In this massage, a special rod of wood from a Tamarind tree is tapped gently with a similar hammer or mallet, causing it to vibrate, and transfer these vibrations to the human body. This Thai massage technique releases blockages deep within the body and tension in deep muscle groups. Believers in body energy find that Tok Sen opens up the channels in their body, producing deep meditative states, feelings of rejuvenation, and vigor. Practitioners explain that it is the vibrations and pleasant sounds of the wooden tool that dispels negative energy, increases blood circulation and stimulates the nerve endings.
You may see Thai massage advertised elsewhere, but very few Salons can offer the diversity, authenticity, and pure overall expertise of the practitioners at Venelle Salon and Spa.
