ABOUT THAI MASSAGE

What is Thai Massage?

Thai massage is a branch of traditional Thai medicine that is a holistic and meditative style of bodywork. It’s foundations lie in Thai medicinal theory and Buddhism; so while it has the potential to treat injuries and/or restructure body alignment, it also integrates a deep spiritual component based on the idea that the mental, energetic, emotional, and physical bodies are not separate.


Thai massage utilizes a wide range of techniques such as deep compression, passive stretching and movement, and other work thats focus is freeing pathways of movement within the body. Other tools such as cupping, scraping, liniments, balms, and hot herbal compresses can also be used. While this style of bodywork can be calming and relaxing, because the practitioner has the opportunity to employ their entire body weight - it also has the ability to be the most intensive deep tissue work. Typically, a session is performed on the floor with the client clothed in loose comfortable garments on a padded mat.
