A combination of energetic and physical aspects is what makes Thai bodywork so unique and effective. Thai massage is a deep, full-body treatment, starting at the feet and progressing up to the head. Using a sequence of gentle and flowing exercises, the recipient's body is moved, loosened and stretched.
Some people call Traditional Thai Massage "Lazy man's yoga" because the therapist is skilled at supporting the client in stretches that are yoga poses. In many cases, the client can experience benefits from poses that would be difficult to achieve unassisted, because it takes years to develop the requisite strength, balance and flexibility to perform the poses in a solo yoga practice.
Thai massage is done on a mat with the client dressed in comfortable loose clothing: a t-shirt and sweatpants are ideal.
Believed to be over 2000 years old, traditional Thai massage is an authentic healing art and unique form of body treatment developed by people who used massage not only as a therapeutic method of healing to treat illnesses, but to maintain health and well-being.
Thai massage is worked on a mat with the client dressed in comfortable loose clothing, t-shirt and sweatpants are ideal. Thai method uses mainly point pressure and muscle stretching. And it is not just the hands that are used to free tension stored in the recipient's body, but the feet and elbows are used as well.
Some of the innumerable benefits include:
“I love this Spa! I got a package as gift and I am very glad I did! Extremely friendly staff and front desk. The manicure was so well done and precise. The massage was the best 60 minutes I've had all year. It was much needed and I cannot wait to go back again for more sessions. I also had a facial as part of the package and that was very refreshing. Pia Spa is a great find! ”
“The tech was great! I really enjoyed my facial and hand and feet massages that accompanied it. It was a very relaxing way to spend my birthday. <br />
I also want to review my waxing with Pia. Even though waxing is a somewhat painful process Pia made the process a lot less painful than expected. Great service as always! ”
“My massage was incredible! I have to admit that I have not been to a male therapist in 10 years. Don's strength combined with a smooth touch was definitely the most relaxing and healing, so much that I made a following appointment. <br />
Thank you, again, <br />
“Clean and homey atmosphere. Professional and super relaxing ! ”
“The front staff was courteous and professional. My massage therapist did an amazing job. His bed side manners were as professional as his skills. At the start we conferred together about specifically what type of message and the areas of focus. The massage met or exceeded my expectations. I will definitely return. ”

“AMAZING! I booked my friend and I a Spa Package for a facial, massage and pedicure! Everything was amazing. My massage and the pressure was perfect. My facial was amazing and my skin was so soft when she was done. Finally the pedicure. . . you will never go anywhere else after getting the pedicure. I have never been so pampered! The sangria was an added bonus. Will be bringing more friends here. ”

Very good experience and I will be back and also purchased a Gift Certificate for my mother again this year for her birthday. Thank you so much for everything! ”

“It was my second time getting a perfecto facial and I enjoyed it even more than the first, which I didn't even think would be possible. She was able to extract a black head and calcium deposit I was concerned about. The whole experience was so relaxing. She massaged my arms, hand, feet & legs and it felt wonderful. After leaving my face felt perfect! Can't wait to go back! ”
“I brought my Mother-in-law to get her nails done here. She had a bad experience in South Florida and I knew I couldn't take her to any strip mall nail salon. She loved her and said this is the only place I should go for nail services. She explained how gel is good for her nails and did a great job. Bonus was the neck massage which my mother-in-law loved. ”
“Absolutely fantastic! I had a massage, facial, and manicure & pedicure. All of it was top notch, professional & amazing! Thank you ”
“Amazing experience! The Massage Therapist was awesome in explaining everything. Check in and check out was smooth. Covid requirements were met with no issues. First class. Will come back. ”
“Lovely experience all around! The waiting area is cozy and welcoming. My massage therapist was extremely professional and thorough, understanding key details about me before the massage started. He was great about customizing the massage based on my preferences (massage oil scent, temperature of room, pressure level, etc). Highly recommend this spa - I will be back! ”
“My massage was absolutely fantastic! ! She was amazing and I hope to come back soon. I also love the fact that my massage room was totally quiet. So many times, I've had a massage at other places and I could hear the reception area or nail tech area conversations over the music. But not at Pia! Thank you so much and I hope to come back again soon. <br />

“My Massage Therapist is very professional. He was up front and honest about what he believed I needed instead of what I thought I needed when I came to a deep tissue massage. He also gave me tips at home with how to help with my main issues. I have had many deep tissue massages in the past and it was by far one of the best. I came in with a gift card originally as a one and done massage but scheduled another one when I left and plan to continue to go back! ”
“Just an AMAZING Massage! So professional and kind! Very creative on how to treat his customers with different techniques and tools. His customized approach to each session always has me leaving feeling so much better and relaxed. Thank you! ”
