Get A Foot Massage and Enjoy A Head & Shoulder Massage Too!

I have never given a thought to the neck pain I constantly suffered due to long hours working in front of a computer. As long as I can still move my neck without much restrain even though there may be a little pain when I turn my head too far back, that did not bother me. Unperturbed, I lived with that little neck strain for a long time.


One day, while researching for an article to write, I chanced upon a few questions that made me sit up and took notice: “Did you strain your neck working in front of the computer all day long?” Yes, and I wanted to know more.

“Did you feel heavy and tight at your head and shoulder?” Yes, they always did. As I read more about the consequence of a neck pain, the more I was determined to find a relieve for it. That was when I stumbled onto Thai Odyssey, the award winning Thai spa centre in Malaysia, which has over 40 outlets in many major shopping malls nationwide.

                              In recent years, they have opened a few more outlets in Thailand and China, promoting the health benefits of Thai Traditional Massage as a wholesome holistic therapy.As I stepped into their first outlet which they opened in 2004 in Centrepoint, Bandar Utama, the calming and soothing piped-in soft green music and the aromatic herbs that scented the room enveloped my senses immediately. The serene atmosphere instantly put me into the mood for total relaxation and rest. The details of Thai decor dotting every corner of the outlet, with its teakwood furnitures, Thai art and artifacts, even down to the made of their slippers and pajamas, were so inviting that I felt I had just been transported to Bangkok’suptown spa resort.I selected a 1-hour Foot Massage and after I had made my payment, the front desk Manager introduced me to my therapist. She took a look at my slim fitted pants and without my asking, spontaneously gave me a pajamas to change into even though I was there for only a Foot Massage. I thought that was a very observant gesture. Thumbs up from me.


As I settled myself onto a chair for a foot wash, I was amused when I remember a customer who gave a comment that in Thai Odyssey, you will get your feet washed for every service you selected. For that, I will give full points for service excellence.When the therapist had lightly scrubbed, cleansed and dried my feet, she led me into the room which had two rows of body-contoured reclining weaker chair. The room was dimly lit with ornately decorated table lamps, the place was quiet and calm even though some customers were already there enjoying their massages. As I settled myself comfortably in the chair, the therapist excused herself and came back with an eye pillow and a cup of tea. She placed the eye-pillow, which was infused with the scent of lavender, over my eyes. Feeling cozy, the muscles around my eyes were beginning to loosen up.


The therapist began to work on my feet, starting with the left foot, while wrapping up my right foot with a towel as if it was her precious possession. I felt so cared for and I liked the feeling. As she gently worked on my feet, it felt so snuggly, I dozed off for a while. When I awoke, she was already working on my right foot.To complement the 1-hour Foot Massage, it will finish with a head and shoulder massage. The therapist moved away from the chair while I sat up with my back facing her and she worked on my back, shoulder and neck, then up to the head. After a rejuvenating massage on the feet, the head and shoulder massage continue to re-energize the whole body, especially the neck area.The Foot Massage experience was so fulfilling, no wonder The Malaysian Women’s Weekly announced Thai Odyssey as the Winner in 2009 for ‘Thai Foot Massage for Best High-Heel Rescue’ – A review from one of our fan a.k.a professional writer –

It may be time for a head and shoulder massage for the relieve where you will find it comforting and absolutely relaxing.

Your neck is the most fragile part of your body that is easily strained. It is connected to the spine that supports your head and controls many part of the body systems. The neck is the crossroad between the head and the body that is vital to provide energy and blood flow to the head.

According to Traditional Medicine, a blockage of qi that is over-stressed by a neck strain will result in poor circulation to the whole body, ineffective detoxification and it will affect the skin’s natural absorption of good skincare products. The longer the neck is over exerted, you will feel tired easily, skin lacks vibrancy and also due to sleep quality being compromised, body immune system is affected. For female, you may even experience irregular period and menstrual cramp.


The neck and shoulder areas are the first to age because toxins are accumulated here. Once it is built up, the shoulder and neck areas will start to harden and age. This will curb the absorption of nutrients to the head and brain areas. It also suppresses growth hormones and causes hormonal imbalance and early menopause.

The more relax the head and shoulder areas, the more it helps to relieve headache, dizziness, supply oxygen to the brain and leaves you feeling energized. Apart from improving skin tone and give a healthy glow on the face, a revitalized upper body will also increase restfulness when you sleep.

One session of head and shoulder massage will relieve and rejuvenate you to have a head start to your bright and cheerful day. A regular massage will also help to alleviate many health problems.
