Review: Thai traditional foot massage at Sukho Thai

Mumbai in July is no different than Venice and last Saturday it was raining like cats and dogs. It had been a typically crazy and hectic week at work. I needed a massage really bad. So, I braved the weather and reached Sukho Thai’s centre at High Street Phoenix Mall in Lower Parel, on a rain-drenched evening.

I opted for the Thai traditional foot massage of one hour duration and changed into a comfortable pair of brown palazzo pants. My therapist Themso, a young cheerful boy, started off the massage by washing my feet, wrapping it up with a towel and massaging it dry. I was lying down on a comfortable recliner and the room was quite dark barring some dim yellow lights and candles. The set-up was really soothing.

Themso then put some oil and massaged both the legs, while using acupuncture to highlight the pressure points. The massage made me fall half asleep. Then he put a pillow between my legs and massaged from the thighs to the heels. The best part is once we were done with the legs, he made me sit on a stool and massaged my back, head, hands and neck… it took all my stress away! Even though it’s called a foot massage, it included a nice back massage too and was totally worth the one hour.

Not only that, after the massage, they served some piping hot and yummy ginger tea and fresh fruits. So, if you’re having a particularly hectic week at work, head to Sukho Thai for a relaxing evening, like I did. You can ask for Themso, even though I’m pretty sure all the therapists are equally skilled. You won’t regret it.
