Thai Boran Massage officially joined the spa and massage industry in mid-2006 as a sole proprietorship. This small enterprise offered a variety of body, back and foot massages and catered to a number of corporate and walk-in clients. Every branch also provides home and hotel services to its nearby areas. The market steadily became aware of Thai Boran Massage as a reliable and affordable massage clinic in our country.
Since it began, Thai Boran Massage kept on adding more branches nationwide until it had multiple branches in our beloved Cebu, in neighboring cities in the Visayas and in Luzon and Mindanao. Acknowledged for its vision and enterprising spirit, the Cebu-based enterprise decided early on to tread the path that few dare to take, even up to the present, and entered the world of franchising. The main branch of Thai Boran in Cebu is on Gorordo Avenue, Lahug, and www.thaiboranmassage.com is its Web site where interested people can go to find out more about the franchise.
Thai Boran in Jagobiao, Mandaue, opened on June 26, 2011, as the northernmost branch of the franchise here in Cebu. The contact person for this particular branch is Minerva “Min” Zafra, and she is dedicated to making the spa a prime example of Thai Boran’s expertise in the ancient art of Thai foot and body massage. One important thrust of Thai Boran Massage is to maintain a high level of massage expertise, cleanliness and good services. The company thereby invests heavily on continuing expansion and professional training from Thailand, to add more services in the future.
Min Zafra and her husband Carlos, who’s her partner in the business too, are determined that their establishment should be recognized for its own substantial merits as a genuine massage spa and shouldn’t be lumped together with those disreputable massage parlors that offer the so-called extra service. At Thai Boran Jagobiao, none of that hanky-panky is tolerated because the couple thinks of the business as one of their ways of contributing to our society, by providing respectable jobs. Here are some actual services that you may purchase as a client of the Thai Boran branch:

Two-hour massage could also be provided. Even though Thai Boran is focused on Thai massage methods, it also provides Swedish massage since it’s another popular style of massage. Swedish massage is designed for increasing circulation and blood flow, and it uses long, flowing strokes that are often, though not necessarily, in the direction of the heart.
Thai body massage is soothing because of its emphasis on stretching and loosening the body’s muscles. Thai massage is considered an ancient art because its roots go back far into history, originating in India before it became popular in Thailand. In back massage, the masseuse concentrates on the head, neck, nape, shoulders, and upper back, and uses different pressures and massage techniques to stimulate the acupressure points and create tension relief in the back and neck.
The foot massage integrates principles of Chinese reflexology, like chi, and the idea that the nerve endings at certain spots on the sole of the foot each correspond to an internal organ. This applied therapy leads to a healing effect on one’s overall well-being. After all, Thai Boran wants you to think of it as a place where healing hands touch you. Many people, especially those who are on their feet most of the day, enjoy foot massage for its mix of stimulation and relaxation.
To make sure its clients get the most effective treatment sessions possible, Thai Boran asks each client about his or her health history profile, before beginning a session with a new client. The information helps Thai Boran make suggestions on the type of massage that suits a client’s preferences or health condition. The massage spa keeps the personal information from the short questionnaire confidential of course.
The Thai Boran Massage franchise is proud of its staff that includes therapists, supervisors, purchasers, and receptionists. Some of our country’s top companies and organizations like San Miguel Corp., Philhealth and SSS have availed of Thai Boran Massage services.
