Thai Massage Therapy

Thai massage is an interactive manipulation of the body using passive stretching and gentle pressure along energy lines. This ancient form of massage dates back to the time of Buddha and looks like a cross between shiastu, acupressure, and yoga. Practitioners apply pressure along meridian lines with their thumbs, hands, and feet to stimulate the movement of energy in the body, and in addition, move and stretch their clients in Yoga-like poses to free muscular and joint tension. Designed to be both relaxing and stimulating, Thai massage improves flexibility, reduces tension, stimulates internal organs, and balances the body’s energy system.

It is also said to boost energy and improve range of motion and flexibility. Thai massage, in particular, is said to benefit or ameliorate many different health problems. Specifically, it may:

Relieve tension headaches
Reduce types of back pain (typically subacute and chronic nonspecific back pain)
Relieve muscle pain and spasticity as well as joint stiffness and pain
Increase flexibility and range of motion
Stimulate circulation and lymphatic drainage
Boost energy
Calm the nervous system
