Why not give a Valentine's Day gift that keeps on giving by taking your sweetie to a massage workshop? River West's Allyu Spa will host "Thai, Chai and Chocolate" on Sunday, Feb. 15 to teach students the art of Thai massage (with some yummy chai tea and chocolates thrown in for good measure).
Thai massage is rooted in the Ayurvedic prinicples of India and has been practiced in Thailand for more than 2,500 years. This type of massage is done on a mat on the floor, with the recipient wearing loose clothing to allow for movement. Guests at the "Thai, Chai and Chocolate" workshop will learn how to both give and receive the yoga-like stretching techniques, deep compressions and acupressure used in Thai massage.
If your significant other isn't into spa workshops, no worries. The class isn't just for couples -- bring a friend or family member, or attend solo. The "Thai, Chai and Chocolate" workshop will run from 2-4PM, and costs $35 per person to attend.
