Thai Massage is a very powerful modality combining a mix of deep pressure, stretches that cover the entire body and assisted yoga. It is many times referred to as “The lazy man's Yoga”. It is an ancient healing system combining acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles and assisted Yoga postures and is focused on releasing blockages along your meridians, or lines of energy. Thai Massage is one of the few massages where it is not oil based and you stay fully clothed during your sessions. The session is usually performed on the floor underneath a special thick mat or a small stack of blankets. During a Thai Massage, there is a lot of interaction between you and your therapist. The therapist uses his or her body to leverage you into elongating stretches, manipulating joints, performing bodywork by sitting or kneading gently into your legs, back and feet and pulling you into numerous pain-relieving positions. It’s like combining a massage and Yoga class in one session.
Thai Massage is a unique and powerful massage modality. Due to the slow movements when administering this healing technique, Thai Massage allows the mind and spirit to experience a deeper form of relaxation. Using gentle, deep tissue manipulation, it increases circulation throughout the body, promoting blood flow, improving your overall health. Thai Massage has many other benefits including increasing flexibility, relieving joint stiffness, boosting energy, mental relaxation and providing stretching like no other. Thai Massage helps release serotonin which helps regulate mood and social behavior, appetite and digestion. Better known as the “happy hormone”. If you are experiencing a type of joint or muscle pain or if simply want to escape and unwind for an hour, then Thai Massage is the perfect combination of pain relief and relaxation.
