Thai massage, also known as Thai massage, is an ancient therapeutic technique originating from Thailand. Unlike other types of massages, Thai massage is performed on the floor, on a mat, and uses a combination of pressure, stretching, and yoga movements.
During a Thai massage, our therapist uses her hands, fingers, elbows, knees and feet to apply pressure to specific points on the body and perform gentle stretches. The therapist guides the recipient through a series of positions and movements, including stretches, compressions and pressure on the body’s energy lines, known as “sen.”
Thai massage is based on the belief that the body is made up of a network of energy lines, similar to the meridians in Chinese medicine. It is believed that these energy lines can become blocked or imbalanced, which can cause pain, tension, and illness. Thai massage seeks to unblock and balance these energy lines, thus promoting health and well-being.
Thai massage can help relieve muscle tension, improve flexibility, stimulate blood circulation, and promote deep relaxation. It can also help relieve stress, improve posture, and increase energy.
It is important to note that Thai massage can be more energetic and active than other types of massages, as it involves more intense movements and stretches. However, the therapist should always tailor the massage to the needs and tolerance of the recipient, and any discomfort or sensitivity should be communicated during the session.
