The location of the cabin. A good massage is to be found on the main streets of the city, and not in the alleys and unfamiliar places where the foot of an ordinary tourist rarely steps. This also applies to massages on the beach. Every second will tell you that he is fluent in all types of Thai massage. In reality, the Thais simply take a couple of simple lessons and earn extra money, thus, in crowded places. For most people, this is an additional form of income.
Staff. If the massage therapist performs the functions of an administrator, cashier, etc., it is worth the alert. A professional master in a good cabin performs only his direct duties, without exchanging for other side jobs. A small number of staff again suggests that you should not trust a beautiful sign or loud words.
Interior decoration also tells you about the level of the institution. It is important to have a shower in the case of oil massage. A large, beautiful, clean salon with special massage furniture (transformable chairs) will point you to the correctness of your choice.
