Dee Best Place to De-Stress

Dee Deep Tissue

By Joolee - May 27, 2020

Dear Friends,

As our community transitions out of the Stay at Home Phase, and into the Safer at Home Phase, we are striving to provide a service that we feel is now more important than ever, for its stress-reducing qualities and overall health benefits. We've made some changes to our standard Thai Massage to acknowledge that life is a little different at the moment, and lowered the rate to make it accessible to everybody, realizing that those who are suffering from lost income may need massage the most. We invite you to visit us for a session:

Thai Energize
$55 for 60 minutes

~ Wear your own comfortable clothing (workout clothes, without many zippers/buttons)
~ We will only be working on you in the seated and prone (face-down) positions
~ Your massage therapist will wear a mask and a face shield (also, gloves, by request)
~ Masks will be provided for customers who don't have their own
~ There will be a disinfectable vinyl sheet under the regular sheet
~ As always, we will change sheets, wash hands and sanitize all surfaces between clients, with extra attention to details like doorknobs and bathroom fixtures
** NOTE: Please book 24 hours in advance. You must pre-pay online.
Also, we would prefer that you fill out the intake form online, if at all possible. This applies to returning customers as well, as we have an updated form to reflect the times.

We at Sabai Thai, are dedicated to the betterment of the world, through massage, one person at a time. If you have any concerns or questions, please don't hesitate to call (and enjoy the photo of Su Wetterer, Sabai Thai Owner, in Thai Energize Regalia)!

A note on Deep Tissue Massage:

Deep tissue massage feels soooo good, right? It feels like you're not just affecting the surface of a muscle, but you're getting down into the belly of the thing and effecting real change, loosening the tissue, releasing stored tension, allowing the whole network of fascia to expericence a little freedom, and setting off little fireworks of pleasure-pain. We get that, because we agree. However, we'd also like to take a moment to acknowledge that there is such a thing as TOO deep. It's normal and acceptable to have a little soreness the day after a massage, however...if a body receives massages that are too deep, especially habitually, tissues can be damaged. Also possible, but quite rarely, nerves lesions can be caused. So you if feel like there is no way for you to experience a massage that is deep enough to satisfy you, this message is for you.

"Consumers need to know that massage isn't perfectly safe, that a "no pain, no gain" attitude is the source of most of the danger, especially for chronic pain patients."

~ Paul Ingraham (science writer, runner, former massage therapist, and assistant editor at ScienceBasedMedicine.org for several years).

Four Ways to Lower Your Massage Price

By Joolee - March 10, 2020

We here at Sabai Thai believe that Thai Massage should be available to everybody! With rent to pay, and children to feed, we can't quite offer it for free, but we do have a few ideas for making massage more affordable for you:
1. Follow us on Instagram, or like us on Facebook. Show us at your next massage, and get five dollars off (we are operating under the honor system that you will only collect on this once, so please respect that). 
2. Refer a friend! If you send somebody our way, they get ten dollars off their first massage with us, and you get ten dollars off your next one!
3. We have membership rates, so if you commit to a massage every month, you save ten dollars each time (and this is an excellent preventative measure...often people come to us once they have an issue to resolve, but if you make massage part of your self-care routine, you are much less likely to exerience those issues).
4. If you have a trouble spot that you'd like to have worked on, and want to forego the full-body work, a one-hour massage is only $55.

Krubkun ka, and hope to see you soon!


NOTE: Due to “Coronavirus” concern, please be aware that we are taking thorough precautions against viral spread. We have instructed staff not to come to work if they feel sick. We are wiping down all door handles with disinfectant wipes multiple times throughout each day. We have hand sanitizer & tissues in every treatment room. And, of course, all sheets are changed after each client. Please call us if you have additional questions.

Why Thai?

Because it’s SEN-Sensational!

By Joolee - March 1, 2020

Want a massage? Not sure which kind? Consider Thai Massage, because it is SEN-sational, on many levels!
Just a few:
1. On a definition level, sensational means: Causing great public interest and excitement (True of Thai Massage? Yes!)
2. Your bodies (both physical and energetic) receive many delicious sensations as a result of receiving (and giving) Thai Massage, and
3. Thai Massage isn't just massage. It's a whole traditional healing SYSTEM, based on SEN, Sen are energy lines in our bodies (for you yogis out there, similar to nadis, and for any Chinese medicine folks, also similar to meridians), and all of the compressions and stretches that you receive during a Thai bodywork session, are aimed at clearing blockages from those energy pathways, so that your energy can flow more freely throughout your body. Who doesn't need that?! Because everything inside of us is so connected and interdependent, blockages in one part of the body can cause symptoms in another. That's why each Thai Massage is a full toe-to-head treatment, even when Your therapist also spends some time focusing on your problem areas. 

It's a sin to ignore your sen, so bring them in for a tune-up today!

Letting Go


Hello massage enthusiasts. Today I'd like to discuss and examine an expression we use in massage therapy, the term "Letting Go" We use this phrase to describe a state of relaxation in not only a physical sense, but psychological, emotional, and spiritual senses as well. Massage therapy is a great way to relax. However, as our bodies start to relax, our minds are continuously running. The more we relax, the more our minds let go of all those subconscious thoughts we have been holding on to.
Why does this happen? Imagine your mind as a boiling pot of water with a lid. The water continuously boils and bubbles over with thoughts. Once the lid is lifted, water begins to evaporate and releases just as our thoughts would. As the pressure in the pot is relieved, the boiling settles. Our minds do the same thing.
So how can we truly experience full relaxation in both body and mind? We must "let go". Focus on the sensations your body is feeling. Am I tensing my shoulder? Am I breathing full or short breaths? We must refrain from getting involved with the thoughts that surface. Though this is a skill we must practice, learning to do this, even just a little, has extraordinary benefits. Through meditation or massage therapy we can practice letting go.
Come to Sa Baai Thai massage in Denver, relax, let go, and enjoy!

Thai Massage Services in Central Denver


Denver, do you ever find that no matter what you do, your muscles are tight? You might even go for a massage, feel better for a few hours, and then find that you are right back where you started the next day, tight in all of the same places, the relaxation that you found the day before but a faint memory? Perhaps you went to the chiropractor to get adjusted, and finally feel like your body is straight and symmetrical again, only to find that things fall out of line within twenty-four hours? It is time to end your frustration, Denver, and start to understand what is going on. 
 
Your muscles have patterns that are being repeated over and over, and this is why simply getting one chiropractic adjustment or one relaxing massage is not going to solve your bodily problems. Not right away, that is. First of all, when you get a chiropractic adjustment, often the misalignment that is happening is due to the fact that your muscles are pulling the vertebrae out of alignment from their chronic tension, so, when you get the adjustment, it is important to get massage/bodywork in order to teach the muscle how to relax into a new pattern. Also, getting the right points through massage is important. This is where Thai Massage comes to the rescue. 
 
Swedish massage is great, and, all massage is wonderful, and there is no arguing that it doesn’t help – bodywork in general is good. Anything you can do to increase circulation and mobility is good, no matter what- I’m not trying to tell you that getting an occasional massage is not beneficial. What I am saying is it is also important to be strategic about your bodywork whenever possible. Thai Massage is amazing, because it goes really deep, and not only are the massage therapists hands used to massage muscles, but, knees, elbows, feet and more are used to give full pressure to strategic points on the body. The principles of acupressure are applied with Thai Massage, and, thus helps to release chronic patterns in the muscle fibers. After I receive Thai Massage, I usually feel like a happy bowl full of jelly. 
 
Come to Sa Baai Massage and find out how we can help you to release long term muscular patterns, giving you an entirely new experience of your body. You won’t believe the difference, and you’ll keep coming back for more.
