Thai massage is a form of body work that is becoming increasingly popular in the West. A complete Thai massage incorporates a traditional combination of point pressure, energy meridian work, and yoga-like stretching for an invigorating and balancing experience. Thai massage improves circulation, flexibility, muscle tone, and is the perfect complement to any exercise routine. Thai massage is great for relieving stress and tension helping you to feel completely relaxed.
Thai massage is most different from other forms of massage in that there is no oil used, that the practitioner uses a mattress on the floor (as opposed to a table), and that you remain comfortable clothed throughout the massage. You can wear loose fitting clothing or allow time to change into the traditional Thai massage clothing provided.
This blend of point pressure and stretching is especially beneficial for those who find themselves stiff, sore, and tired from over-exertion in work or sports, or from arthritis or other debilitating diseases. Thai massage enhances strength and flexibility, relaxes sore or tense muscles, and can help to recapture lost range of motion. By encouraging lymphatic function, this traditional massage can also detoxify the body, heighten the immune system, and prevent disease and/or injury by promoting flexibility.
