To Thai for

If you’ve frolicked on the beaches of Thailand, you’ll know there is nothing more fabulous than a traditional Thai massage. Luckily for Thai enthusiast, you no longer have to venture further than Joburg.

Puri Thai is the perfect slice of Thailand right in Joburg’s shopping hub, Sandton. Using the traditional techniques of Thai massage, Puri Thai is the perfect place for people to experience the relaxing effects of ancient eastern massage. Our traditional Thai treatment which made use of stretching coupled with massage was quite possibly the best full body massage we have ever had! The difference between Thai and traditional western aromatherapy? Thai massage doesn’t use oils, rather focusses on the manipulation of pressure points to relieve body tension and stress.

Our therapist, Honey, was the best in the business! Not only was she skilled, she talked us through the treatment explaining the benefits of each stretch. The treatment, although relaxing was no easy work but luckily for us, Honey did it all. We left our treatment having never felt so supple.

As the therapists at Puri Thai explained, humans have become more sedentary than ever before, thus causing their muscles to atrophy. This is why ‘PC bound professionals’ need monthly massages to relax tense muscles – we couldn’t agree more! After our hour treatment we felt as if we had new bodies, belonging to our eighteen year old selves.
