WoWasis visits My Spa: a therapeutic, non-sexual massage in the heart of Bangkok

The MySpa experience, worth a stop in Bangkok

Though you might not believe it, judging by Bangkok’s reputation as the soapy massage capital of the world, therapeutic, non-sexual massages do exist, and we found a great one in the heart of Bangkok, one minute from the Asok BTS Skytrain station. My Spa, located on the 3rd floor of the Times Square shopping complex, has been in business since 2003, offering body scrubs, facials, peels, and all manner of massages. 

Recently, we went in for a Moroccan Argan oil treatment, featuring a mangosteen body scrub (we could have done salt, but a recent bout with mosquito bites kept us to the more gentle mangosteen), Argan oil aroma massage, and Argan oil facial treatment. It took us 2.5 relaxing hours out of our busy day where, instead, we could have fought traffic, heat, street noise, and everything that makes Bangkok the hustling town it is. The price was 2,500 baht (roughly $45 USD), and it was sooo relaxing that we fell asleep twice. 

The body scrub came first, a half-hour with tiny morsels of mangosteen fruit worked into the pores, mixed with the exotic Argan oil from Morocco. Showering down after the treatment, we were lead back to the massage table. The body massage and facial treatment kinda blended into each other, two hours that seemed like 20 minutes. It was relaxing enough that we frankly started snoozing, but woke ourselves up so that we didn’t miss out on the experience. 

My Spa was a great stop, easy to get to on the BTS, with good prices, and a friendly staff, highly recommended for exceptional stress relief in the City of Angels.
