Let me take you on a journey and step inside The Secret Garden Spa.
Wellness Massage Treatments
Wellness massage treatments offer a range of benefits for both the body and mind. These treatments are designed to promote relaxation, reduce stress, and improve overall well-being. With the use of various techniques, such as Thai massage, deep tissue massage, and aromatherapy, wellness massages target specific areas of tension and help release muscle knots. The therapist applies gentle pressure and kneading motions to stimulate blood circulation and promote the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. This results in a sense of deep relaxation and rejuvenation. Wellness massages can also help alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression, as well as improve sleep quality. Whether you are looking to relieve muscle tension or simply indulge in some self-care, wellness massage treatments are a great way to take care of your body and mind.
The Spa location in Koh Samui, Thailand is exactly as I imagined. It is enveloped by lush tropical plants and abundant wildlife. As I made my way to the spa treatment areas, I was greeted by the sight of the flora and fauna that were used during my body treatments, creating a serene atmosphere for relaxation.
As a married couple, we had the opportunity to be in the same treatment room. Prior to the commencement of our treatments, we engaged in a thorough consultation meeting where we discussed our specific preferences and desires. Ultimately, we decided to go for a combination of relaxation and deep-tissue massage.
Essential Oils for Massage
Essential oils are an integral part of massage therapy. They not only enhance the overall experience but also provide numerous benefits for the mind and body. When it comes to choosing the right essential oil for a massage, there are several options to consider. Lavender oil is well-known for its relaxing properties, making it ideal for relieving stress and promoting a sense of calm. Eucalyptus oil, on the other hand, is commonly used for its invigorating and refreshing effects. Peppermint oil can help alleviate muscle soreness and provide a cooling sensation. For those seeking a more sensual experience, ylang-ylang oil is often used for its aphrodisiac qualities. It is important to note that essential oils should always be diluted with a carrier oil before applying them to the skin. Whilst consulting with a professional aromatherapist or massage therapist the appropriate use of essential oils was agreed upon. Take the time to smell the oils and whatever smells appealing is the one you should opt for. Destress oil was for me, smelt like tiger balm perfect for aching muscles and tension in the body. There are plenty of couple’s immersion treatments, wonderful way to start your honeymoon. For couples like us, our marriage has stood the test of time for nearly a quarter of a century, making it a significant milestone worth celebrating. A Spa treatment is the perfect way to celebrate it.
The Spa Preparation
When it comes to spa and wellness experiences, Southeast Asia stands out as a top destination. Prior to beginning our treatments, the therapists pampered us by cleansing and exfoliating our feet in a soothing blend of warm water infused with ginger, lemongrass, and fragrant flowers. This delightful ritual sets the perfect ambiance for the rest of the spa experience.
It is important to wear dedicated robes, slippers, and underwear before the treatments which are all supplied. The electric massage tables provided an easy experience of getting on and off the tables. This is not a common feature, but it was truly blissful after the massage as the electric table gradually encouraged you to get up. A wonderful massage will always leave you feeling sleepy and relaxed. The treatments started with the soothing scents of essential oils and the sound of a bell. Both of the ladies were highly skilled at identifying and addressing areas of tension in our bodies. Their expertise was evident, setting them apart from the massages offered on the beach. After our visit, we felt rejuvenated, free from pain, and completely at ease. There were numerous choices for tea, and I personally selected lemongrass tea. It is recommended to choose a tea that is sourced locally from Thailand. Additionally, the waiting room plays a significant role in enhancing the overall spa treatment experience. This Secret Garden Spa has plenty of hidden areas for wellness. In fact, stepping into the Four Seasons Resort here in Koh Samui is one luxurious secret garden of pure wellness indulgence.
Muay Thai Boxing
There are plenty of activities to choose from here at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui, Thailand. With tropical settings and stunning sea views. This was the perfect time to experience Muay Thai boxing.
Muay Thai Boxing, also known as the “Art of Eight Limbs,” is a combat sport that originated in Thailand. It is characterized by its unique combination of punches, kicks, knees, and elbows, making it one of the most versatile and effective striking-based martial arts in the world. In Muay Thai, fighters use their entire body as a weapon, employing various techniques and strategies to defeat their opponents. The sport requires immense physical conditioning, as well as mental discipline and focus. I underestimated the rigorous training that includes sparring, pad work, and conditioning exercises to develop strength, speed, and agility. Muay Thai Boxing has gained popularity worldwide, with professional matches attracting a large following of dedicated fans. I highly recommend going and seeing a professional match here in Koh Samui.
It is not only a challenging sport but also an excellent form of self-defense and a great way to improve overall fitness. As a female, I learned a lot about simple techniques in case I was being attacked. The setting was amazing! It was wonderful peering at the stunning sea view when doing this sport in a dedicated boxing ring.
Whether you’re looking to compete or simply want to learn a new skill, Muay Thai Boxing offers a thrilling and rewarding experience for people of all ages and fitness levels. You don’t have to be a lover of combat sports to try this. The lesson catered to my needs and slowly worked me into an adrenaline-body rush, experience.
The endurance needed in this sport is why I will continue my Muay Thai journey here in Thailand.
Tips For Women
Make sure you make it clear your fitness level when doing this sport. If you have any injuries do not attempt this sport. This sport is very taxing on the body and so for those who are not fit or never tried it. I would recommend observing the instructor first. For women over fifty and going through menopause, this sport is very hard on the muscles so don’t attempt it if you are struggling with muscle strength.
