Sabai Thai Spa - West Vancouver

Tuesday, August 2, 2011
Sabai Thai Spa recently opened up their 3rd location in West Vancouver. After the lovely time I had at their Coal Harbour location, how could I possibly say no when Sandra of Middle Child Marketing invited me to try out the West Van spot?

The West Van location, located on the super cute part of Marine Drive, has a totally different vibe than the Coal Harbour location. It's much more sleek looking but still has the same welcoming and tranquil feeling. I don't know what it is, but Sabai Thai just oozes this warmth when you're there.

I really wanted to try one of Sabai Thai's traditional Thai services, which is what they're known for, especially since I tried the Deep Pressure Anti-Stress Massage last time. I went for the Traditional Thai Massage, or Nuad Boran:

Thai massage is a unique massage experience that will facilitate deep relaxation while wiping away your daily stresses. Your Treatment is enjoyed comfortably in loose fitted traditional Thai clothing that we provide for you here. Thai Massage techniques incorporate stretching and pressure points over the entire body, releasing blocked energy and increases awareness and well-being.

My masseuse, Anong, couldn't have been taller than 5'2" and was so adorable. She usually works at Coal Harbour - go see her!

The massage itself was definitely unlike any other massage I had ever had. I was concerned that it wasn't going to be as relaxing as other types of massage with the stretches involved, but once I got used to it, it was quite pleasant. I did tense up a bit during the leg part of the massage, but that was expected.

Overall, the massage was great (not as deep as I prefer, but it worked my tight areas (shoulders and legs)) and the service and staff at Sabai Thai are professional and delightful.

I went for my first Thai massage at the Coal Harbour location with Anong a few weeks ago and it was AMAZING. It was seriously my favourite massage experience and I've tried a lot. I will definitely be going back to see her :)
