Today we added Newark in New Jersey to our directory of Thai massage practitioners. If you know of more practitioners, or are practicing in Newark just use the comment function to be included here on this site.
Today we added Las Vegas to our directory of Thai massages.
There are many stories to tell about Las Vegas in Nevada – it’s of course one of these cities in the world that has a very unique reputation, and calls itself the entertainment capital of the world. Gambling, cabarets, shows, good food, and a lot more.
It has the reputation of “Sin City”, because it is very tolerant of all kinds of “adult services” – and I’m sure that a lot of so called “Thai massage salons” in Vegas are not really offering traditional Thai massage, but rather “happy ending” Thai massage.

It’s the seventh largest city in California, and in 2002 it was named the “most integrated” city of America in 2002 by the Time magazine.
I’ve never been there, but from what I heard it’s definitely a place I like to visit next time I’m in California.
Sacramento is a former “gold rush town”, so there’s been lots of interesting history going on.
There’s also a Chinatown in Sacramento, which is another interesting place to check out, I’m sure they have all kinds of massages – and quiet honestly, when it comes to massage, the Chinese can be just as good as the Thai’s.

We’re happy to announce that we now also added a directory of Thai massage practitioners in Portland in Oregon.
Portland, aka “The City Of Roses”, is one of the greenest cities in the world, and I think that is a good indicator that there are lots of people who can appreciate the joy and relaxation that comes from receiving a skillful traditional Thai massage. There are lots of microbreweries (that’s why beer enthusiasts also refer to it as Beervana or Beertown), and Portlanders are mad about high-quality coffee, so they definitely know a thing or two about enjoying life :-)
It’s also one of the most vegetarian-friendliest cities in the USA, and food-lovers will be delighted by the abundance of great restaurants.
The “founder” of Portland bought the land (around 640 acre for 25 cents. Now THAT’s what I call a bargain, even in 1843. Actually two people teamed up to buy the land: William Overton and Asa Lovejoy. Later on William Overton sold half of his land claim to Francis W. Pettygrove. Both Lovejoy and Pettygrove wanted to name the new city after their hometown, and they couldn’t agree. Instead of shooting each other, they just tossed a coin. (I think that’s a sign of the long history of intelligence of Portlanders…). They cossed a coin three times – and two times Pettygrove won. The penny still does exist, and you can see it at the Oregon Historical Society – it’s called the “Portland Penny“.
I don’t know at what year Thai massage was first introduced to Portland, but I figure it can’t be that long ago. Probably somewhere after the Vietnam war days.
If you have a story to share about a Thai massage experience in Portland, be free to leave a comment and share it with the world :-)
Today we added Omaha to our directory of Thai massage practitioners, shops, spa’s and salons. So all the people in Nebraska can now find a place to soothe their tired muscles again too :-)
Every time I hear the word Omaha, I think of Warren Buffett, but maybe that’s just me.
Omaha actually is an native American name, which means “dwellers on the bluff”. Although I’m not sure what that is about, I like the name :-)
I just read an interesting article in the Independent about a new spa resort on a private island near Phuket – if you have about 3600 USD to spare for a week of indulgence and re-charging batteries, then you might be interested in this.
The upscale spa group Six Senses has mobile phones, movies, etc. are not allowed (except on special request and even then only within the own villa), and it all sounds pretty good. Thai massage treatments are included in the price of course.
The LA Times recently recommended two Thai massage salons in Los Angeles’ “Thai Town”:
Traditional Thai massage at reasonable prices and well-maintained facilities can be found at Thai Sabai (5261 Hollywood Blvd.,  485-2800, www.thaisabai.com) and R4U (5300 Hollywood Blvd.,  465-2755).
We now have added Boston, Massachusetts to our directory of Thai massage providers. It was about time that we integrated on of the oldest cities of the United States into your little site. After all, there are lots of sophisticated and smart people living there, I am sure they can appreciate a good traditional Thai massage :-)
Thanks for all the people who send in listings, we’re in the process of integrating your places too :-)
