About Traditional Thai Massage Therapies

What is Traditional Thai Massage?

With influences from Chinese, Indian and SE Asian medicine and traditions, Traditional Thai massage is an ancient healing art using acupressure and gentle yoga stretches. The traditional Thai massage therapist uses their hands, feet and elbows to apply pressure and help improve natural energy flow and healing.

The traditional Thai massage theory is based on the concept of energy lines, known as Sen, running throughout the body, through which the natural life force flows. In conjunction with flowing, gentle yoga stretches, blockages are released to enhance the free flow of the body’s natural life force.

The benefits of traditional Thai massage include relief of physical and emotional tension, improved sleep, improved flexibility, greater awareness of body and mind, and a release of blocked energy.
