I was wrong about that massage beingÂ redundantÂ the other day. Â So wrong, in fact, that I’ve retreated back into the spa at Paresa today for somethingÂ called Thai Boran Massage, an ancient Thai-style massage that dates back 2,500 years. Using no oil, theÂ rhythmicÂ treatment utilizes scented herbal pouchesÂ instead, concentrating on pressure points and stretching to stimulate circulation and relax muscles. I’ve had more than my fair share of massages but this turns out to be 120 minutes of bliss. When all is said and done, I feel amazing: relaxed, yet energized; loose-limbed and light.Â Even better, I’m not left dripping in oil.
