« Traditional Thai Massage » is an ancient form of therapeutic healing practice.
This eastern bodywork intends to restore your own balance. As a result, you may experience changes within your body that will eventually lead to a better overall health.
How does a Thai Massage session feels like?
Thai massage feels like a fluid, creative dance for both client and practitioner. While fully clothed, you lay down on a comfortable futon on the floor.
Each session is not only about working on the body, Thai Massage is truly an Art : gracious movements, intuitive techniques, calmness of meditation and sensitive touch are used to feel the energy flowing within yourself.
Imagine being deeply relaxed and stress free while totally invigorated and energized at the same time!
How does it work?
I rhythmically press on pressure points, stretch muscles and open joints. I compress the client’s muscles using my feet, elbows, knees, hands and thumbs as tools.
Resulting in deep relaxation, decreased pain and increased energy flow as blood and fluids circulate. Passive, deep stretches increase flexibility and range of motion. Rocking and swinging returns the nervous system to a state of ease. Twisting releases sore tension and guides the receiver back to their center. Joints are opened and circled. Bones are gently pressed through the muscles. Restoration is felt from surface level to deep in the body.
Is it for me?
Thai massage blends point pressure and stretching and is very beneficial to those who find themselves stiff, sore and tired from over-exertion in work, sports, or from arthritis or other debilitating diseases. Thai massage enhances strength and flexibility, relaxes sore or tense muscles, and can help to recapture lost range of motion.
By encouraging lymphatic function, this traditional massage can also detoxify the body, heighten the immune system, and prevent disease and/or injury by promoting flexibility.
