Thai Massage

Created over 2000 years ago, and is still widely practiced today. Thai Massage is a combination of gentle rocking, range of motion, acupressure, reflexology, energy work and stretching, a form of passive yoga. Joints are loosened and opened through manipulation and peripheral stimulation, muscles are stretched, internal organs are toned, vitality is increased and a deep state of relaxation can be achieved. The work is very rhythmical and meditative.
The massage is done on a floor mat with the client wearing loose, comfortable clothing. This gives the practitioner a lot of leverage and the ability to use their body very effectively. It also allows for movements that are not as effective, or impossible on a table. Therapists are trained to respect everyone’s varied amount of flexibility and can therefore benefit the limber athlete, as well as those who are not very limber, by stretching everyone to their own personal limits.
