Is the winter chill biting at your bones and you’re just not moving like you wish you could? Or do you just crave the gentle and warming touch of hot stones to soothe your sore spots? If so, the expert massage therapists at Sawasdee Thai Massage in Tuggeranong and Bai Po Thai Massage in Dickson have just what you need to warm you this winter. A hot stone massage uses smooth basalt stones that are pre-warmed to your degree of comfort. But to begin, your massage therapist warms your body with hot towels over the soles of your feet, legs and body. A soothing massage then really gets the rejuvenation process going.
Once your body is warm and relaxed, the hot stones work their gentle warming magic wherever you need them. The different sizes can target areas such as stiff necks or aching backs and shoulders. You can even try them on your tummy to help with digestion issues or to soothe abdominal or period pains.
The circular hot stones feel like a smooth and very soothing warm touch that induces that “aahhh” moment where all your stresses melt away. The hot stones also help to promote better circulation throughout your body too. The hot stones are also placed on pressure points along your spine, shoulders and neck. Two warm stones in the palms of your hands help create a warming circuit within, while the massage therapist rubs your head and neck.
More warm towels are placed over you to further enhance the restorative process and cleanse your body from the lightly scented massage oil. The whole process takes 90 minutes, or you may wish to take a 1-hour version with a shorter massage.
Make sure you contact Sawasdee Thai Massage or Bai Po Thai Massage to find out about their special promotion on hot stone massage during the month of June. The 90-minute hot stone massage has been reduced from $159 to $149, while the 1-hour version is now just $99.

The Thai style massage uses both palm and thumb to concentrate on the pressure points of your whole body. This massage includes some stretching, to reduce fatigue and release tight muscles while improving blood circulation, relaxing the muscles and creating an overall feeling of well being.
Therapeutic massage is a type of massage that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem—such as a frozen shoulder.
Some of the physical benefits of massage and myotherapy include:
reduced muscle tension, improved circulation, stimulation of the lymphatic system, reduction of stress hormones, increased joint mobility and flexibility, improved skin tone and improved recovery of soft tissue injuries.
Remedial massage therapy aims to help the body’s natural healing processes to work most effective to ease the pain and discomfort of soft tissue injuries, strains, accidents and illness. Not only can it focus on specific areas but it can also enhance your vitality and sense of well-being through the soothing of the nervous system, increasing the flexibility of connective tissue and fostering a greater freedom of movement from the body.
Reflexology is based on the belief that the body contains constantly flowing energy or “Chi” which unites with reflex points of the feet. This specialized foot massage assists in the relief of stress and tension, helps to improve circulation, and fosters a restoration of the body’s natural state of equilibrium.
Using a combination of strokes and acupressure techniques, this soothing and gentle massage allows the healing properties of natural oils to penetrate into the skin which leaves both body and mind felling completely relaxed. It is the most gentle and relaxing.
A body scrub has several rejuvenating benefits for the skin by gently removing dead skin cells, dirt and oil from the outer layer of skin. This helps to unclog pores and expose your skin’s underlying healthier layers. Body scrubs are very moisturising, have a rich, base that provides hydration. Also, the removal of dead skin cells actually increases your skin’s firmness and its ability to absorb moisture.
Together with our special massage technique, the benefits of smooth, flat, pre-warmed, volcanic basalt, carefully placed on specific parts of your body, aim to help promote blood circulation and help ease your muscle tension and pain. Book now to have your stress and anxiety relieved, your body and soul restored.
The neck, back and shoulders hold much of the stresses of everyday life. A massage to these areas will give you a peaceful retreat from the outside world. The increased circulation to these areas will release anxiety and relieve you from insomnia, headaches and migraine, while increasing circulation and boosting the immune system.
Swedish massage is the stress buster that uses a system of motions that apply pressure between muscles and bones by rubbing in the same direction as the blood flows to the heart. It increases the oxygen levels in the blood and releases toxins from the muscles. Reduce your recovery time from injury to muscles, ligaments and tendons while letting all your stress slip away.
Sufferers of chronic pain will get relief from a deep tissue massage by this technique’s focus on bands of rigid tissue that are inflamed and painful. Conditions such as lower back pain, osteoarthritis, pain from sports injuries, fibromyalgia and pain caused by repetitive stress disorders will be relieved far more than the gains from temporary pain medications.
The coconut tree is known as the ‘tree of life’ for very good reasons. And coconut oil is enriched with natural properties that are perfect for treating various bacterial, fungal or viral infections. A coconut oil massage will sooth away soreness, tension and stress and is excellent for those who are tired due to physical activity.

“I love this place. Been a customer since they opened. I have one favorite masseuse Natalie and I only have her for my aromatherapy. Love the staff, owner and Natalie of course. Im here now waiting for my next massage. Got to go.”
Sawasdee Thai Massage Staff are always very professional and very good. Very reasonably priced. I am a regular and would not think of going anywhere else.
“I went to get a couples aromatherapy massage with my partner the other day- all I can say is wow! I work in childcare and my back gets sore all the time from spending my day at child's height. The masseuse managed to find every click and kink in my back while also giving a super relaxing massage. 5 stars, will recommend to all of my friends!”
Sawasdee Thai Massage is outstanding. The staff (including reception) are very professional. I appreciate the high standard of service and cleanliness and I always feel nurture after having treatment. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.
I have been having weekly massages at Sawasdee for over a year, to address some long term injuries. I have always found that their approach to business and service is extremely professional.
For the last few months I have been seeing Yha for Deep Tissue Massages. Yha is amazing in the way she can find and isolate problem areas to fix my many adhesions and knots. Yha is tough but caring in her approach to relieving and resolving my muscle and tissue injuries.
I would highly recommend Sawasdee Thai Massage
“Went to this place once and have now become a regular member! Lovely people and great massages! I especially love the oils they use for their aromatherapy massage. I highly recommend”
