WELCOME TO SA-BAI-GAI.

Sa-Bai-Gai is a Traditional Thai Medical Massage business located in the heart of Oundle, East Northamptonshire behind The Oundle Candy Shop in a secluded and peaceful courtyard away from the hustle and bustle of town centre traffic.

It is run by myself Pen (short for Supakphen) and my husband Mick. The aim of our business is to offer help to those who have specific health problems that require treatment or to provide relaxation from the trials and tribulations of everyday life. Massages are normally conducted by Phen but at busy times we may call upon another female Thai masseur to support the workload.

WHAT DOES SA-BAI-GAI MEAN?

Translation of Sa-Bai-Gai - Sabai (sa-bye) v. to be relaxed, happy or content | Gai (Guy) n. body. Together this phrase means "relaxation of the body and mind" which is at the heart of what I aim to do for you.

WHAT IS THAI MEDICAL MASSAGE?

This an ancient form of muscle massage practiced in Thailand for many hundreds of years. Thai massage origins are linked to Yoga Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, as well as the indigenous healing practices of ancient Siam. It is used in the major Thai hospitals and many district hospitals as part of normal practise for treatment of a variety of conditions and ailments. It is used alongside and complimentary to western Physiotherapy.

AFTER-CARE ADVICE

This massage is by it's nature deep tissue and there can very occasionally be some post-treatment muscular pain or reddening of the skin. This is a perfectly normal reaction because the massage has disturbed muscle tissue and some small and minor blood vessels in order to give an effective treatment for the root cause of problems. Any local pain that may arise can usually be treated with Paracetamol. We always call new clients after their first treatment to follow up on any of these issues. We appreciate any feedback on our treatments as our clients health is very important to us.

At no time do we treat skeletal problems - this is the province of Osteopaths and Chiropractors. We regret we are also unable to treat any patient with cancer, either current or in their medical history. It is very important that any issues in these or other areas are declared to us on the Medical Questionaire you complete at your consultation visit. We assure you of complete confidentiality in these matters.

GENTLEMEN

There are some men who do not understand the aims and purpose of true Traditional Thai Medical Massage, it is regrettable that I have to make this statement. This is a respectable Thai massage business so please respect me and do not ask for any other "services". Any one asking for such services will be reported to the Police along with any contact details.
