Thai Massage

What is Thai Massage?

Thai Massage is an ancient, energy balancing, healing art. It was first discovered in India, by Dr Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha. He brought it to Thailand and developed it further. It has now been practiced in Thailand, for thousands of years.  It combines stimulating acupressure points, along the ten sen energy lines, with applying gentle stretches to the body.  It offers you an entire body, energy balancing treatment, which also improves your posture and flexibility. When the body if free of blocked energy, it is able to do its own natural job of self-healing.

What can I expect and how will I feel after a treatment?

During a Thai Massage treatment, you lie fully clothed, on a mat on the floor.  No oil is used! The Thai masseur uses his/her thumbs, hands, elbows, knees and feet, to apply pressure to the 10 Sen energy lines, which run throughout the body.  This is combined with gentle applied stretches.

After a treatment, most people feel the benefits of a Thai Massage, straight away. They feel relaxed, centred, enlivened and energised. For some people, it take a day or so, before they feel the full benefits. This is because, blocked energy, is still clearing from their body. After that, they to will feel enlivened, centred, energised and more alined and flexible. Some of my clients have even said, “lighter”, as their mobility has greatly improved.
