What to Wear for a Thai Massage: A Guide for Comfort and Relaxation

When it comes to getting a Thai massage, comfort is key. You'll remain fully clothed throughout the massage, so it's important to wear something that is comfortable and can be easily stretched. We also have clothes that you can wear during your massage. Wear comfortable clothing and flat shoes.

If you don't have time to change your clothes after work, at least wear smaller heels. Don't forget to wrap your long hair, it's especially important if you're going to get an oil massage, so that it doesn't touch the aromatic oils. The first difference you'll notice between a Thai massage and classic Western styles is the lack of equipment. After the first traditional Thai massage, you may feel a little muscle pain, which should go away within a few hours.

Thai fishermen traditionally wear lightweight clothing that dries quickly and allows for freedom of movement. This is because Thai massage works the whole body through a sequence of movements that are similar to yogic stretching. Whether you choose a Swedish massage or an aromatherapy massage, a Thai massage or a deep tissue massage, they are all designed to relax and reduce muscle tension and stress levels. Many people believe that the health benefits of Thai massage include reducing stress, increasing energy and improving athletic performance.

While Swedish and deep-tissue massages are performed on a massage table, Thai massages are performed on a rug.
