Massage - Thai

 



Thai Massage is an interactive manipulation of the body using passive stretching and gentle pressure with the hands and feet. These movements help to adjust the skeletal structure, increase flexibility, relieve muscular and joint tension, stimulate internal organs and balance the body's energy system. The effect is both relaxing as well as energising.

As an ancient form of massage, Thai Massage combines other natural therapies such as Shiatsu, Acupressure and Yoga.

Thai Massage is usually performed in quiet meditative atmospheres encouraging the client to let go of physical and emotional restrictions. It facilitates a sense of unity, wholeness and balance. It creates a dynamic physical experience that integrates the body, mind, emotions and spirit.

It is beneficial for young or old, active or inactive, healthy or not so healthy. Thai Massage sessions usually last one to two hours and are performed on a floor mat. Clients wear loose clothing and no oils are used in this style of massage.
