Last week was extremely stressful for me – the mother of all stressful weeks! I had to move out of my old place in Andheri to a new home. Well, I am still in Andheri and my new home isn’t too far from my previous house but packing, shifting, unpacking and settling into a new place can sometimes really take a toll on one’s health, body and mind. Especially in this deadly Mumbai monsoon and managing all of this while working 6 days a week! My current state of mind? I’m in dire need of a break!! But for me, one of the few things that can turn around a terribly stressful day is a relaxing pampering session. And that’s exactly why I happily said yes when I was invited to a foot massage at Sukho Thai Spa.
Located at High Street Phoenix, Sukho Thai Spa boasts to offer one of Mumbai’s best foot spas. I opted for the hour long Thai traditional foot massage. As soon as I entered, the receptionist gave me a brief idea on the massage and guided me to the changing room where I slipped into comfortable massage pants. Impressively, there was not much waiting time. I was brought inside by my therapist, Luno. The ambiance was soothing, thanks to the soft, dim lights, calm music and a nice scented aroma. The spa was extremely clean and hygienic, which was a big deal for me. And Sukho Thai therapists are very cautious when it comes to cleanliness and comfort. Luno really made me feel relaxed and was absolutely friendly.
The massage began with a gentle cleansing of my feet with warm water. Post which, Luno started the actual oil massage. He did a brilliant job using techniques that were brought together to stimulate circulations and ease tensions of my feet, ankles, calves and knees. This lasted for approximately 30 minutes.
My legs were then wrapped inside a hot dry towel and Luno massaged my entire legs right from my toes till my thighs for another 15 minutes. I think I fell asleep because the massage was so good. But that’s not all! There was also a dry back, shoulder, neck and head massage for around 10-15 minutes. This came as a lovely surprise as I didn’t expect anything more than a foot massage. But like I said earlier, I really needed this relaxation!! In fact, the entire session left me feeling rejuvenated and relieved all the stress from my mind and body. To top it all, post the massage, I was served a cup of hot ginger tea and fresh fruits.
I highly recommend you take an hour off from your busy schedule this week and try the Thai traditional foot massage at Sukho Thai Spa. They’ve got many branches – you can pick the closest Sukho Thai Spa near your home or workplace. Personally, I can’t wait to go back!!
