Thai hospitality figures into traditional massage

Date Posted: 2007-08-16

Thailand bills itself as the 'Land of Smiles' and here, Jasmine pampers customers and makes them feel like they're there.

It's more than a massage, says Jasmine owner Pranee. Customers are warmly greeted by name, served herbal tea, and even get their feet washed in herbal scented water before slipping into loose fitting pajamas for the massage. Jasmine opened its doors in late April, offering traditional Thai massage, as well as several others.

Pranee, who owns Jasmine, is a graduate of the Wat Po Thai Traditional Medical School in Bangkok. She’s qualified not only in Thai traditional massage, but in oil massage and aromatherapy arts, as well. Pranee has created Jasmine as a uniquely Thai atmosphere, with green curtains forming private rooms for both Thai and oil massage.

Thai massage “begins from the tips of your toes,” says Pranee, “and gradually moves upward to the top of your head by following the Zen Energy Lines of our bodies.” The massage focuses on circulation and pressure points, promoting health and muscular flexibility. Pranee works the body through face up, face down, side and sitting positions to enable the masseuse to perform a variety of exercises.

A typical Thai massage takes two hours or more, but Jasmine has shorter 90, 60 and 120 minute regimens. Hot herbal compresses, herbal balls, are offered as an optional service to warm and sooth the customer’s body.

Jasmine is located on the first floor of Ameku Apartments, adjacent to Lawson’s at Ojana in Ginowan City. Jasmine is about 1.7km south along the ‘Pipeline’ from the Futenma Marine Corps Air Station main gate.
