Traditional Thai yoga Massage

Thai Massage is an ancient form of massage thought to have been developed by Buddhist monks in Thailand 2,500 years ago. It 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.

The therapist uses the weight of their body to move your body into various positions to achieve passive stretching.

What Happens During a Thai Massage
Thai massage typically works with compression — rhythmic pressing movements directed into muscle tissues by either the hand or fingers. A combination of acupressure and yoga-like stretching techniques that employs the use of the therapist’s fingers, thumbs, elbows, arms and feet on the body’s muscles, pressure points and energy lines to clear energy blockages and balance the body’s energy. Thai massage takes place on a futon mat on the floor, with the client wearing loose or stretchy clothing like yoga gear.
