Thai Massage is an ancient healing art form practiced in Thailand that gives the benefits of massage, yoga, and energy work in one nurturing dance. Thai bodywork is a whole-body treatment that combines passive stretching and movement of joints with several touch techniques and work along energy meridians. The whole treatment is a graceful, nurturing, interactive dance that is sensitive to the condition of each person. The beneficial effects of Thai Massage are: greater flexibility, flow of energy, deep relaxation, and feeling of well being.
The art of Thai bodywork achieves a deep therapeutic effect without harsh physical force- this is accomplished through efficient use of movement, conscious touch, breathing and rhythm. Since it is given on a floor mat with you being fully clothed, your therapist can use their whole body in leverage and interactive work as they move and rock your body into various positions, apply rhythmic touch as well as some cross-fiber stroking of muscle and tendons. The treatment can be vigorous or gentle depending on your need or preference.
You do not have to already be flexible to receive and enjoy Thai Bodywork!
Thai Massage treats the whole body in four positions: supine, side-lying, prone and sitting. Clients often report feeling “longer,” “expanded,” “looser,” “deeply relaxed,” “refreshed” and more aware of their body. It can have therapeutic benefit for many conditions, especially tight hamstrings and general stiffness, muscular aches in low back, hips, and shoulders, as well as mild rheumatoid arthritis. The deep relaxation and energy work impart a long-lasting afterglow of well-being. A great aid in both recovering and maintaining good health!
