Thai massage is an ancient healing system combining acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles and assisted yoga postures. Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions. The recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the giver and receiver, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked.
The recipient wears loose, comfortable clothing and lies on a mat on the floor. The receiver will be positioned in a variety of yoga-like positions during the course of the massage, that is also combined with deep static and rhythmic pressures.
The massage generally follows designated lines in the body. A full Thai massage session may last two hours and includes rhythmic pressing and stretching of the entire body. This may include pulling fingers, toes, ears, cracking knuckles, walking on the recipient's back and moving the recipient's body into many different positions.
Thai massage can:
- help people to relax, lower tension
- relieve aching muscles
- temporarily boost a person's mood
- improve circulation
- raise energy and increase vitality
- help with relief from constipation, headaches, sciatica, back and neck pain
