The delightful therapists at Lanna Come Spa Chiang Mai And The Relaxing Hydrotherapy Treatment
On all the Engaging Thailand tours that include Spa visits, our clients are delighted with the treatments and staff at Lanna Come Spa in Chiang Mai. It would appear that the phrase Lanna style is constantly used in the north of Thailand to go with everything these days, but the truth is that you have to search harder to find real Lanna style or those still living in a Lanna life style. The meaning of the word Lanna (ลานนา) is ” The land of a million rice fields” and the north is the home of the wonderfully tasting sticky rice. The Lanna region actually stretched from the Shan state of eastern Burma running across Yunnan Province in the south of China, in to the west of Laos and northern Thailand.
Lanna Come Spa recreates the magic of Lanna within their charming spa upholding the traditions and cultures of the ancient Lanna, it is said that if you want to view ancient Lanna as it really was you should visit Sib Song Panna(สิบสองปันนา) or (Xishuangbanna in the Chinese language) to eat Lanna food, see the big wooden houses and sample real Lanna lifestyle.
On our previous visit to Lanna Come Spa in February 2010 our clients chose a number of treatments from massages, body wraps, body scrubs, hydrotherapy and the many day spa packages on offer. I decided to have a spot of pampering myself and booked a 60 minute Thai Herbal Hot Compress followed by a 45 minute Jacuzzi bath energizing therapy, I mean who says men don’t go to spas it was good enough for the Romans in between battles so it would be good enough for me, but I would just give the battling a miss.
I arrived at Lanna Come Spa to be welcomed with a gorgeous and healthy tasting spa drink and a chat with the lovely staff. Whilst my treatments were being prepared I sat with my drink to read some infomative spa information that is all laid out in an attractive manner and already felt in a very relaxed mood. My therapist named Bing (ปิง) showed me through to the treatment room where my feet were refreshed and washed in a bowl of the finest mixed Thai herbs and ingredients, this is really nice after pounding the streets of Chiang Mai in very warm temperatures. Part one of my treatment was the Thai Hot Herbal Compress a revitalising hot oil massage all over your body, this was fantastic, relaxing your muscles and giving you a total wellbeing feeling as used with the massage were such ingredients as Lemon Grass, Kaffir Lime, Tumeric, Tamarind. Galangal and many more. Part Two was the Jacuzzi bath Energizing therapy in my own bathroom suite ahhh wonderful so with dressing gown on hanger and a couple of cucumbers over the eyes I will see you all in 45 minutes. The jacuzzi is absolutely brilliant and by now I have not got a care in the world. Showered, dressed and ushered back through to reception I am given another delicious spa drink and some delightful tasting treats to see me on my way, to be perfectly honest I could have done with a couple more hours in there. My advice would be make the appointments gentlemen you don’t know what your missing, I mean after all us men need pampering as well don’t we, well I do anyway. I am not forgetting the ladies, but I know you are well aware of these sort of treats, having been clever for a long time. I really would recommend that both ladies and gentlemen if in Chiang Mai you pop along to Lanna Come Spa and give yourself a real treat and if you come with Engaging Thailand then we will always visit the very charming Lanna Come Spa.
