Traditional Thai Massage is an ancient system of healing with its roots in Yoga, Ayurvedic medicine and Buddhist spiritual practice. This unique and complete system of Yoga therapy combines rhythmic massage, acupressure, gentle twisting, deep stretching and meditation. Thai Massage releases tension, increases vitality and creates wholeness of mind, body and spirit. The technique emphasizes pressing, compression and stretching techniques and does not apply massage oil or cream. Generally, Thai massages last one to two hours. Thai massage can be simultaneously relaxing and energizing.
Massage therapist uses hands, feet, knees and elbows to knead your muscles during the massage. This consistent kneading, stretching and stroking encourage greater blood flow in your body and increases your circulation. The effects of passive stretching combined with the deep-tissue techniques of Thai massage can be quite relaxing. Passive stretches are particularly believed to bring relief to internal organs, which results in renewed energy.
