Traditional Thai Massage dates back more than three hundred years in its present form, with its origins going back more than 5,000 years to ancient India and China. While Thai Massage combines elements of Ayurvedic medicine, Hatha yoga and Chinese acupressure, it has evolved into a system that is entirely unique and is widely regarded as one of the best systems of therapeutic massage in the world.
Thai Massage combines gentle, yoga-like stretching with massage of the muscles, tendons, pressure points and energy lines, or “Sen”. While there are hundreds of energy lines in the body, Thai massage focuses on the ten main energy lines. Thai Massage is performed on a mat as opposed to a table. This allows the practitioner to get the body leverage necessary for the stretches and postures characteristically used in Thai Massage. Depending on the needs of the client, Thai Massage technique may also employ the elbows, knees and feet in addition to the hands.
Thai massage is ideal for rejuvenation and reduction of stress to achieve harmony in the body. But it can also help with headaches, stiff neck, trapped nerves, frozen or stiff shoulder, arm pain and tennis elbow, aching muscles and lower back pain, sports injuries and hip, thigh and knee problems.
The pressure can be varied according to your preference. Less pressure should be used the first time, while more pressure can be applied as your body can tolerate deeper work. Always feel free to request the level of pressure that feels right for you, and be sure to specify any pain or specific problem areas that you would like help with
