Yesterday, I had a fantastic massage at Lamai Thai Massage – which opened on Abbot Kinney recently – on the corner of Andalusia and Abbot Kinney (where Moulin Rouge lingerie used to be.) Part therapeutic, part Cirque du Soleil, it was one of the best massages I’ve had in quite some time!
Why is Thai massage different than Swedish? In my opinion:
Don’t be put off by the fact that you and other clients are all in the same room, separated by curtains for privacy – you are clothed during the massage and it’s so quiet, you’d think you were the only client there. The facilities are very clean, the therapists were great, and at $40/hour, the prices are extremely reasonable. (note: they accept only cash!)
Lamai Thai Massage is located at 1326 Abbot Kinney Blvd. 310.399.7953
*the pants are not draw-string. The strings go in the back and wrap around your waist. I wasn’t the only confused person there!
