“Praan Spa is a real dream come true for me personally. It’s a place where I can be myself and where everyone else can come as themselves.
Before becoming a massage therapist I worked in a laboratory at Maejo University, Chiang Mai. My interest in massage therapy began in 2003 when my father became paralysed after brain surgery. I started learning Thai massage to help him. As soon as I learned about the role of movement in Thai massage I realised it was so much more than massage – and fell in love with it.
When I moved to Finland in 2007 I began to work as a massage therapist in Helsinki and now, after 11 years as massage therapist, I know how much people need healing by touch. I want to help and through helping my customers I get something back on an emotional level. A massage therapy session with me is also an exchange of feelings.
Praan Spa is a boutique spa with five different individually designed treatment spaces. In the oriental style treatment rooms and spaces I want my customers to feel comfortable and inspired. The colours in the spa are carefully chosen to lift mood and with the art on the walls I want to bring nature to my customers. The feeling of being close to nature helps with the calming and healing in the frazzled world we live in.
Everything you see at Praan Spa is designed and sourced by me. With some of the items for sale in the spa shop I want to show the world how skilled Thai people really are with their hands. I particularly want to support the people of North Thailand, my home region, by selling beautiful jewellery and crafts from that area in the spa. They make beautiful gifts for friends and family or treats just for yourself.
At Praan Spa we don’t use chemicals so that our customers can feel as close to nature as possible. After a Praan Spa treatment you will feel re-energised and reborn. A visit to us – be it in the morning, afternoon or evening – will feel like a new start.
Massage is my life. I simply cannot live without it! That is why Praan Spa is truly made from the heart. And from my heart, I wish you welcome.”
