Thai Massage is both calming and energizing – like a yoga class bust without the effort is now becoming increasingly popular world-wide for relieving stress and stress related disorders. Thai massage therapists use their legs, knees, hands, and feet to manipulate the body into different positions and stretches. Acupressure, muscle compression, and joint mobilization may be used as well. This style of massage focuses on aligning the body’s energies, focusing the mind, and increasing flexibility. It also provides an inner organ massage, increases circulation, and decreases stress. This ancient form of massage dates back to the time of Buddha and looks like a cross between shiatsu, acupressure, and yoga.
It is performed on a mat on the floor, the recipient wears loose, comfortable clothing. The therapist assists the receiver in yogic positions and incorporates muscle stretching, compression, acupressure and soft and deep tissue pressing, done in a rhythmic movement of gentle rocking. Thai Massage is never painful, and clients are stretched only to their personal limits of flexibility. No lotions or oils are used.
