Traditional Thai Massage (Thai Yoga Massage)
All over the world there are various styles of massage. Traditional medical massage of Thailand is one that has become increasingly popular in recent years. Traditional Thai massage has been strongly influenced by both the Ayurvedic medicine of India and the Acupressure point of the Chinese medicine.
Thai massage emphasizes pressing, compression and stretching techniques, rather than rubbing techniques using palms and fingers as in western-style massage. Thai massage is a combination of gentle rocking, range of motion, acupressure, reflexology, energy work and stretching. The client's bodies are pulled, twisted and manipulated in ways that have been compared to a form of passive yoga.
Thai massage can treat a wide variety of complaints. It is beneficial for relieving stress, tension, anxiety and is designed to relax and open the body's natural energy flow.
The essential purpose of the practice of Thai traditional massage is to bring balance and harmony to the body, mind, and spirit of the clients.
It is a wonderfully self-indulgent way of feeling great, naturally and gently supporting and enhancing your mental, physical and emotional well-being.
