Modern urbanites frequently suffer from a variety of health issues, including sore muscles and bad posture, brought on by heavy workloads and the stress of standing/sitting for too long. This in turn has led to the growing popularity of massage and spas as a form of relaxation, with a variety of massage centers opening recently in Taiwan. A top choice among these for both local residents and visitors is Thai massage, which has a long history and practice dating back to ancient Thai royalty.

Thai massage techniques incorporate pressing, touching, pulling, twisting, pinching and rubbing, with massage force and pressure applied gently and equally to all parts of the body, using the masseuse's palms, elbows, arms, knees and both feet, with stiff joints stretched and muscles relaxed. For those who don't exercise much, the unique Thai massage practice of assisted yoga poses is an excellent aspect. Undergoing professional massage that stimulates blood circulation and relaxes muscles and joints also has been show to improve sleeping quality.

In addition, many massage centers include spa therapies with soothing massage oils and exfoliation in a Thai palace-style ambiance, allowing customers to immerse themselves in relaxing, healthy and luxurious pleasure.
