Traditional Thai Massage

Thai Yoga Massage is a system of massage, acupressure, and assisted stretching developed in Thailand, and influenced by the traditional medicine systems of India, China, and Southeast Asia. 

This form of bodywork is often performed on the floor with the client fully clothed in loose, comfortable clothing. No oils are used in this type of work.  At times hot moist Thai herbal compresses may be applied to areas of concern. The receiver may be positioned in a variety of   yoga-like positions during the course of the massage, but deep static and rhythmic pressures form the core of the massage.

Thai massage uses passive stretching and gentle pressure along the body’s energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension, and balance the body’s energy systems. Pressures used can be very deep to light depending upon preferences. Sessions can be spot specific or whole body and are a minimum of 1 hour up to 2 hours.

Benefits of Traditional Thai Massage include:

* increases flexibility and range of movement 

* reduced stress

* decreased muscle tension* increased energy

* relief from aches and pains

* unblocking and balancing the energy flow through the sen lines (Thai energy lines)    

* detoxification of the internal organs
