The experience of a Thai Massage leaves one feeling both relaxed and energised at the same time.
Thai Massage is one of the branches of Traditional Thai Medicine and in Thailand is widely considered to be a medical discipline used for the treatment of a wide variety of ailments.
Thai Massage is also practiced by a number of non-medical massage practitioners in the spa and tourism industries.
Since the 1990’s it has become a worldwide therapy and is quickly becoming one of the most popular treatments in Spas and massage clinics.
Thai Massage is an ancient and unique form of body therapy incorporating deep stretching and rhythmic compression in a ‘dance like’ transmission of energy. It affects the whole body by increasing flexibility, releasing both deep and superficial tension, and helping the body’s natural energy to flow more freely.
It has been known as passive yoga as the receiver can be put into yoga-like positions during a treatment. It is usually performed on the floor with the client wearing comfortable clothing that allows for movement.
The massage practitioner exerts pressure on the body’s energy lines with the palms of the hands, the thumbs, the elbows and even the feet.
