First massage experience | Thailand - Lonely Planet Forum - Thorn Tree
Plai- or Zingiber Cassumunar oil is used daily in Asian medicine thanks to its impressive pharmacological benefits. The main characteristics of Plai are the rapid relief of pain in muscles, joints and the anti-inflammatory effect. Pure Plai oil should never be used on the naked skin. Plai massage oil is very effective but unfortunately also rare and relatively expensive.

One of the perks of living in Thailand is the accessibility to affordable massages. Others have been unmemorable and a few not so good. For my last birthday, Chris treated me to a full day of massages. We shared a fancy room that had two massage tables, a shower in one corner, and a soaking tub in another.
