What Is Thai Massage?
Traditional Thai Massage is a fusion of eastern bodywork techniques ranging from Acupressure to Yoga for a truly Zen-like experience.
A blend of yoga, acupressure and reflexology, Traditional Thai Massage, or Nuad Bo-Rarn, is designed to relax and open the body’s natural energy flow. Unlike the scooping and continuous strokes of western-style massage, Traditional Thai Massage uses point pressure, muscle stretching and compression done in a rhythmic movement of gentle rocking.
Sessions usually last from 90 to 120 minutes, so give yourself some extra time to experience this ancient form of bodywork.
What To Expect From Your Session?
Thai massage has been called Lazy Man’s Yoga or Yoga For Two – because of the passive range of motion on the part of the receiver.
The therapist helps stretch your body into a variety of yoga-like positions at the same time doing manual compression strokes on the muscles to further enhance the stretch and release tension.
For your session, please wear loose and comfortable clothing. No oils are used in a traditional Thai Massage session and it is performed on a floor mat.
