Taking a day off work and treating myself to a massage was exactly what I needed, so I was thrilled to get booked in to Thai Kosai, a traditional Thai massage boutique.
Thai Kosai is a short walk from Liverpool Street and Aldgate East underground stations, away from the central hustle and bustle. As I was running a little late and my phone had run out of battery (meaning I had to navigate my own way there without trusty Google Maps!) I arrived at the salon feeling very flustered, but as soon as I stepped inside I felt as if I was transformed into a tranquil paradise. The lovely women in reception even found me a phone charger so I could charge my phone up before I left!
There are six treatments to choose from; Aromatherapy massage - a relaxing full-body oil massage, Thai traditional massage - a massage that focuses on stretching and pressure points, Deep tissue massage, Foot massage, Four hands massage - performed by two therapists, and head, neck and shoulder massage.
All of the treatment rooms are located downstairs and are spacious and relaxing. My therapist could not have been more accommodating - she explained the process to me thoroughly, worked out if any particular areas of my body needed more attention (my shoulder blades!) and provided a deep, thorough massage. All of my aches and pains were gone and I left feeling like I had had a real treat! Unlike some massage parlours where you pop in, get a quick massage and then dash off again, I felt like I was being thoroughly pampered at Thai Kosai.
