Traditional Thai Massage is an extraordinary 2500 year old healing arts system based in Ayurvedic medicine, Buddhist spiritual practice, and Yoga. Thai massage blends gentle rocking, rhythmic acupressure and deep assisted stretches to open, exercise and tone all systems of the body. The work is deeply therapeutic, fluid and meditative.
Thai Massage relaxes, refreshes, and revitalizes both giver and receiver.
The massage work is done on a floor mat with receiver wearing loose, comfortable clothing. This gives the practitioner leverage and the ability to use their body very effectively, which is not possible on a massage table.
Thai is based on a system of energy lines called “Sen”, which follows energy as it flows through the form of the body. There are said to be 72,000 “Sen” which cover the entire body. The “Sen” are closely associated with the Nadis of Ayurvedic medicine and the Meridians of Chinese Acupuncture, all of which can produce internal effects from stimulation of external points on the body.
Because of the deep sense of fluidity, vitality, and healing imparted to both the practitioner and client, Thai Massage is becoming increasingly popular. It is often incorporated with other forms of bodywork at premier health resorts, exclusive spas, health professionals’ offices, and by successful massage therapists.
