Arizona is a state in the southwestern region of the United States. The capital and largest city is Phoenix. To the south, Arizona borders with Mexico.
The name of the state always gives me associations of cowboys and native Indian tribes in the deserts of the US Wild West. I think perhaps it’s because of having read to many Western Cowboy books in my early youth. Anyway, this article is about Thai Massage and we’re going to take a look at the training centers we’ve found in Arizona.
