Thailand to consider re-opening massage parlors but only for services below the waist

The Thai Government is debating whether to allow massage shops to re-open soon, provided treatment is limited to just the lower body.

Coconuts reports that the director of the Health Service Support department, Thares Karassanairawiwong, says upper body massage, including the back, shoulders and neck, will not be permitted for now as it may involve a higher risk of Covid-19 infection.

The Public Health Ministry says the Covid-19 task force will consider allowing massage shops to offer massage treatments from the waist down. Great news for those longing for a foot massage, not so good if you’ve got a stiff neck.

The latest proposal comes following discussion with massage parlor representatives who said their members are suffering financial hardship as a result of the enforced closure of their premises due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
