Traditional Thai Massage

Traditional Thai Massage copyTraditional Thai Massage is a 2500-year-old technique for relaxing the body and quietening the mind. It can help to relieve many physical problems such as back pain, tense shoulders and neck, stiffness, poor posture, indigestion and sciatica as well as more mental problems like stress and lethargy.

What is Traditional Thai Massage?

Thai Traditional medicine is in widespread use today in pretty much the same form that was used thousands of years ago and its influences include both Chinese medicine and Indian Ayurvedic and Yoga.

Thais have long recognised that most musculo-skeletal pain and lack of mobility of the joints is the result of muscles shortening under the influence of repetitive strain.

The pressing techniques of Thai massage prepare muscles for stretching by increasing their permeability to the flow of Sen energies. The manipulations are designed to stretch the muscles a little more than would be possible unaided. Even advanced yoga cannot compete with the stretching capabilities of Thai massage when applied by an expert practitioner.

What happens in a session?

The practitioner uses thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, feet knees and even shins to press and stretch your body and to ensure the flow of vital energies through the body’s tissues. Nothing is hurried; there are no sudden changes of rhythm or speed. The practitioner flows from one technique to another with a smooth rhythm.

What are the benefits of a Traditional Thai Massage?

The gentle but firm massage techniques work effectively on skin, muscle, the organs and the skeletal structure. Muscle and ligament tension is reduced and joint mobility is improved. Blood and lymph circulation are enhanced and waste substances are removed from tissues.

Benefits of regular Thai massage include relief from constipation, IBS, headaches, sciatica, back and neck pain, stress and lethargy.
