Thai Traditional Massage

Thai Massage is an ancient healing system combining acupressure, compression, and passive stretching akin to yoga postures. Thai massage is typically done clothed and on a mat on the floor. We provide appropriate clothing. No oils or lotions are used. Thai massage enhances flexibility, improves range of motion, improves circulation, and energized the body. Thai massage is great for athletes and others who put high demands on their body. Thai massage also benefits those recovering from injury or stress.

Add On Services:

Hot Stone

Designed to relax muscles and release stress, as well as achieve physical and spiritual balance. Warm stones are strategically placed on the body, as well as used as an extension of the therapist's hands. The heat of the stones sinks deep into the muscles, and causes a deep relaxation of the body.


Aromatherapy adds the curative properties of essential oils. The client may choose the oil used, or ask the therapist for a recommendation. This add-on enhances physical and mental well-being.


Reflexology is the application of pressure to specific points on the feet and hands. These reflex points correspond to specific body organs and systems, with beneficial effects on the organs and stimulating the nervous system. Reflexology is ideal for those always on their feet or at a computer.

My name is Klairung (Rung), founder of Thai West Massage. I'm originally from Thailand. I've been a massage therapist for 17 years.

Here at Thai West Massage, I combine and customize the best techniques from Eastern and Western modalities to achieve effective results for each person, and positively transform their day. I'm very dedicated with my work and love what I do.

I have studied at the Body Therapy Center massage school in Palo Alto; Wat Po Thai traditional massage school in Bangkok, Thailand; De Anza College massage program in Cupertino; Mckinnon BTC Institute in Oakland; and Ashiatsu with DeepFeet Bar Therapy.

I have worked as a massage therapist for 17 years, for the last 14 years here in San Jose. I have taught Thai massage to massage professionals. I also do practical, hands-on evaluations of professional massage therapists.

I specifically developed Deep Tissue / Thai Massage as an effective massage therapy technique for athletes and people with injuries. This approach came out of my experience working with active professional and non-professional athletes suffering from chronic and recurring aches and pains.
