Thai Massage is a healing art with influences from both Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine. Unlike traditional massages, you will remain fully clothed while a practitioner uses stretching, pulling, and rocking techniques to relieve tension, promote relaxation, and improve flexibility and circulation. Sometimes referred to as assisted yoga, Thai massage is focused on improving the flow of energy throughout your body.
Thai Massage can relieve headaches, reduce back pain, relieve joint stiffness and pain, increase flexibility and range of motion, ease anxiety, and revive energy.
In a traditional Thai massage, practitioners use their hands, thumbs, elbows, forearms, and sometimes even their feet to reduce tension in your muscles. Thai massage is based on the idea that energy moves through your body along predictable lines or pathways known as sens. To increase the flow of energy along the sens, the practitioner will move your body into yoga-like positions in addition to pulling and rocking your body in various ways.
The combination of stretching, movement, and pressure is what distinguishes Thai massage from other types of massage. Thai massage may be a good option for you if you want a more active type of massage, where you move and participate instead of lying down throughout your massage.
Please come dressed in clothing that will allow freedom of movement and stretching - what you might wear to exercise or yoga class.
