Traditional Thai-Massage share its origin with Yoga and Ayurveda several thousand years back. As a Therapy it has evolved in Thailand for hundreds of years and is an integral part of Traditional Thai Medicine.
The Massage is done on a mat on the floor with the client fully clothed. The treatment consists of palming ,stretching and accupressure along a series of pressure points and energy lines (sen-lines) so as to give desired effect. Often a series of assisted stretches that are similar to many yoga poses will be part of the treatment. As the stretches are assisted and the client is fully relaxed and passive a much deeper freedom of movement and a deeper level of relaxation and exploration can happen both physically and mentally. Sometimes hot or cool, salt or herbal compresses or cupping and scraping are used to soothe aching muscles and old or new injuries. The sequence, the quality of touch and the choice of postures are tailored to most benefit your current needs .
The Treatment can be invigorating active and deep if needed or soothing calming and restorative if that is more appropriate.
A wonderful therapy to open up energy blockages, for pain relief and to restore mental-emotional imbalances.
Thai Massage is suitable for almost anyone and complements most other therapies and health regimes .
I highly recommend seeking out a qualified practitioner close to you.
Thai Massage may just become the best thing you ever did for your self.
Please wear comfortable clothes you can move in for the treatment.
