Thai massage was developed and practiced by Buddhist monks over centuries. Even today, many traditional techniques survive in the country. No visit to any part of Thailand can be considered complete without a pampering spa massage to heal the body, mind and spirits. Although the spa culture has to pick up the big way in Isaan, you can enjoy traditional massages and therapies throughout the province. These massages are available in temples, massage shops and full-fledged spa resorts. Here are some of the spas you can visit in Isaan.
