Thai Massage is new to modern spas, but it is actually an ancient form of massage thought to have been developed by Buddhist monks in Thailand 2,500 years ago. It uses passive stretching and gentle pressure along the body’s energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension and balance the body’s energy systems.  

Because Thai massage is done fully clothed, some people recommend it if you feel uncomfortable with the nudity.

However, Thai massage is not the best choice for first-time spa-goers. Why? First, you're going to being lying on a futon with a therapist crouched over you, pressing on your legs, just to start. They might use the weight of their body to move your body into various positions to achieve passive stretching.
