Thai Touch is Orasa’s dream come true. She dreamt in 2011 of a business that made the most of her Thai heritage. A business that helps Kiwis live their best lives. Lives with a routine that affords them true relaxation. Lives freed of aches and pains. Lives relieved of stress. Orasa dreamt of a team of skilled therapists resolving those aches, pains and stress without medications. Those therapists would be well rewarded for their skills in New Zealand. They could send funds home to support families in rural Thailand. They could learn English as a window onto our increasingly global culture. And they would make up a team of Thai ambassadors bringing their gentle and smiling presence to God Zone.


After eight years, Orasa’s dream has fine lines. Thai Touch has grown from start-up into a respected brand and business in its home town of Tauranga. Across its three studios, Thai Touch now treats an average of 100 clients daily. That’s a fair few siezed shoulders, stiff necks and sore backs sorted each week. And it’s a sizeable lowering of stress for the Tauranga population on a regular basis. Thai Touch is home to twenty skilled massage therapists. We suspect this is the largest group of Thai massage therapists in New Zealand. Every one of them has a story to tell. Every one is grateful to New Zealand for what they can now do for their families at home in Thailand.

There are three Thai Touch studios in Tauranga:
– 17 Ninth Avenue: the original Thai Touch studio right by PaknSave. Set in sub-tropical gardens and with off-street car-parking.
– 12A Prince Avenue: the spacious Thai Touch studio in downtown Mount Maunganui. Just metres from Mount Maunganui Mainstreet. If you are stepping off a cruise ship, the studio is just 300 – 400 m from the terminal.

– 222 SH 2 Bethlehem: our newest studio, is light and airy like the Mount studio.  It has heaps of off-street car-parking. Look out for the green Thai Touch road sign near Harcourts and Countdown on SH2.

With every wave of new therapists that join us from Thailand, we are even more wowed by the depth of skills and experience that we can provide in Tauranga. We guarantee to wow you too when you visit.

Whether you are a day visitor or long term local, we look forward to welcoming you into the Thai Touch family.
