Frequently Asked Questions
What is Thai Massage?
Thai massage is a unique form of manual therapy originating in Thailand. It combines rhythmic pressure point work, stretching and oscillation to free the body of undue tension. The massage is performed on a thick mat on the floor. No oil is used, so the client remains clothed in light, loose clothing. Clients receive massage in multiple positions during a treatment: face down, on the side, face up, seated, and even inverted. These varied positions allow the therapist to access the body from multiple angles and to adapt the work to a client’s specific needs. Some people refer to Thai massage as “the lazy person’s yoga” because the therapist will pull the client into positions reminiscent of yoga asanas. Prepare not only to be stretched, but to have your joints mobilized and realigned. Don’t be surprised if you hear some popping—that is the sound of energy being released.
What do I wear during a Thai massage?
Thai massage doesn’t use any oil, so clients remain clothed. Wear light, modest clothing that you can be stretched in. We have special Thai pajamas available for you to wear during your session in case you arrive in clothes that aren’t optimal for Thai massage.
What if I prefer an oil massage?
No problem: all of our therapists are experts at Thai and oil massage techniques. We are happy to accommodate you with a Swedish or Deep Tissue massage.
Do I need to make an appointment?
Yes. We are a small, cozy, therapist-run spa with no dedicated receptionist or waiting area. Please call or text us at (954) 282-1599 or email us at info@LoveThaiMassage.com. If we are in a session, we will call you back as soon as possible.
What if I have to cancel or reschedule?
Life happens; plans change; we understand. However, we also respect our therapists’ time. We require a credit card to hold all reservations. If you need to reschedule or cancel an appointment, please call us the day before or at least one hour in advance. If you fail to call at least one hour before your scheduled appointment, or if you do not show up to your appointment, you will be charged 50% of the service price so that we can pay your therapist for the loss of his or her time. Thank you for understanding our policy.
What if I am running late?
Finding a new location can be unnerving, especially when traffic is heavy. Please allow yourself ample time to arrive at our spa without undue stress so that you can start your session in an easy state of mind and enjoy your full service time. If you know you will be late, please call us. If we are able to reschedule you, we will; otherwise we will give you a pleasurable massage experience in the time that remains of your original appointment.
What are your hours?
We are open seven days a week. Mondays through Fridays, we begin at 10AM and our last appointment starts at 6PM. Sundays, we open at 10AM and close by 6PM.
Where can I park?
Metered parking is available in front of the spa on NE 19th Avenue. Mondays through Saturdays, 8AM to 6PM, pay with coins or use the Pay by Phone parking app. Parking is free on Sundays. For free street-side parking seven days a week, simply drive south one block.
