Asia Herb Association Herbal Massage and Spa, Bangkok…..That was as close to heaven as I’ve been

Wow is all I can say.

I’m a self-proclaimed massage addict and have been getting regular massages for the last 20+ years and have had been worked on by dozens of therapists all over the world. The two traditional Thai masseurs at Asia Herb Association in Thonglor, were as professional and skilled as I’ve experienced. Number 621 (Khun Dow) was strong and energetic… the massage was something like a combination deep-tissue and manipulation session. She used elbows, fists and feet and bent, pulled, kneaded, stretched and flexed me into a pretzel, to work out deep knots in my muscles in particular, my lower back. I just loved it when she walked on my back.  It bordered on exquisitely painful at times, but the sense of looseness and relaxation when the session is done was truly amazing. On my second visit, masseur number 47 had incredible brute strength, and her technique was very direct. She did a lot of detailed work on the problem areas in my back, and the relief was dramatic. Made me feel like a million bucks.

Love the fact that they are open from 9am to 2am and the staff are really nice. The interiors are done up in an opulent Thai decor which made the ambience very calming, and at just THB400 for an hour, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better massage value in Bangkok. BARGAIN  of the century!

Huge stack of “damn that feels amazing!” That was as close to heaven as I’ve been.  This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
