What is Thai Massage?

thaimassageThai massage is an integral part of Traditional Thai Medicine – a holistic practice that has been used for centuries. It is based on Ayurvedic Medicine and Yoga; using acupressure, energy meridians, and yoga-like stretching.

This unique form of bodywork sometimes called the “lazy man’s yoga” promotes relaxation, increases flexibility and restores energy flow through gentle, rhythmic acupressure that is applied to the Sen lines (energy meridians) along with a series of facilitated yoga postures. You don’t have to be lazy to enjoy Thai massage!

This type of bodywork compliments physical activity and is appropriate for people of all ages and abilities. The classic Thai massage routine can be varied to treat a wide range of physical needs. Whether you have joint stiffness due to fibromyalgia, arthritis or muscle soreness from physical overuse; Thai massage can provide healing benefits and an energy-balancing experience.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Thai Massage is done fully clothed on a floor futon so you will need to wear loose clothing for the session. Rhythmic compressions are given with hands, elbows, knees, or feet along energy lines to promote healing. The facilitated stretching and yoga poses open joints and increase flexibility. The slow, flowing pace of the bodywork satisfies the body’s need for movement and stretching while it soothes you into a peaceful meditative state. After the massage, most people feel calm, alert, and energized; similar to what one would experience after a Yoga or Tai Chi session.
