Thai Massage

About

Traditional Thai massage is an ancient healing system that combines broad and targeted acupressure, stimulation and manipulation of energy lines called sen, and assisted yoga postures. Instead of the relaxing gliding and kneading motions characteristic of more popular forms of massage, Thai massage employs stretching, pulling, and rocking techniques to relieve tension and enhance flexibility and range of motion. The recipient remains clothed during a treatment and while lying on a padded mat on the floor.

The Potential Benefits of Thai Massage

Massage of all types is often used to relieve stress and protect against stress-related health issues. It is also said to boost energy and improve range of motion and flexibility. Thai massage can help with:

Relief of  tension headaches

  • Reducing types of back pain

  • Relieving muscle pain as well as joint stiffness and pain

  • Increasing flexibility and range of motion

  • Stimulating circulation and lymphatic drainage

  • Boosting energy

  • Calming the nervous system

Preparing for your visit

Don’t eat a heavy meal before a massage.

If it’s your first time at the studio, arrive at least 10 minutes early to complete the necessary forms and change. Otherwise, arrive at least five minutes early so you can have time to change before starting the massage.
