And then he started with the Thai massage. I was ok with the pressure level but I noticed after a few pinches that this is not the standard Thai massage. I can tell after having tried it several times. He has no system, he was just pressing randomly as if not counting.
A few minutes after my legs. He started with my back. And he used his elbow. So it was all elbowing for a few minutes. And then he asked if I want him to step on me. I said go. He did.
In my case, my back was still hurt and I felt like I really needed a good massage so I transferred to Pioneer Branch. This place is not nee to me. I have been here several times and their service always delivered. On my way, I was scolding myself for not going straight here instead.
It was at Nuat Thai pioneer actually where I had my first Thai Massage. Yes, been having massage for many years and have tried countless spas and different kinds like aromatherapy, hilot, ventosa, you name it. But never that massage. I thought the like of oil doesn't work for me. But Nuat Thai Pioneer changed that. I actually like it more than Swedish now. And thanks because they have competent masseurs. I would normally go for Justin or Glenn but more on Glenn. It was again Glenn who I requested that day and I was so thankful to him for saving the day and for bringing back the smile on my face. The quality he puts in his trade brings back my faith in 250-peso massages. Go give it a try yourself and you will know.
PS: All photos in this post were taken in Nuat Thai Pioneer which is one of my favorite branches. The one that I was complaining about is California Garden Branch which I failed to take a picture of. I will do so one of these days and will update this post.
Nuat Thai Pioneer is located at
56-58 Madison St., Mandaluyong City
It's behind Globe Tower
