Slow and rhythmic, each Thai massage posture or movement flows into the next. The therapist uses hands, elbows, thumbs, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like or static stretches. Mild, firm or strong touch techniques are applied for muscle compression, joint mobilization, and accupressure.
Creating a powerful, singular, healing experience.
Expertly linking together a specific sequence of postures, stretches and touch techniques, each massage session is created and expertly choreographed for you specifically.
Thai Massage blends the three key elements to good health: Acupressure, Yoga & Meditation. Thai massage has been described as passive yoga. The healing techniques of Thai massage embrace the four states of mind: loving kindness, compassion, joy and balance.
Performed on a floor mat with the client wearing loose, comfortable clothing. Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage. Thai massage is both relaxing and energizing.
We welcome you to experience this ancient, healing therapy from the east.
