On Thai Massages and How It Can Hurt So Good:
You can get a 2 hour Thai Oil Massage for 23 USD here.
Amazing. And they had me dress in these really cool pant and shirt things. (Confession: The pants have to be tied in a difficult way and I admit they got the better of me for about 5 minutes before I finally (maybe) figured out how they worked.)
Thai massages HURT. The wonderful massage ladies here ( I am determined to learn their names as soon as possible) somehow managed to find every single muscle in my body and bend and stretch and pull and press them every which way. There was a point where the lovely lady who was massaging me managed to get my left foot up by my right ear whilst pushing my other leg straight down when I realized the next phrase I needed to learn in Thai was "I think I've broken something."
Their feet are like daggers of relaxation and their forearms like razor blades. And I LOVE IT. I have never felt more relaxed than after a Thai Massage. They are really in tune with tension. It is magical. It is like they read my mind and know exactly where I need to relax. Who needs yoga when you can get Thai Massages?
