Traditional Thai Massage is a more than 2000-year-old technique that aims to relax the body and silent the mind. Thai Massage has several health benefits such as reducing muscle tension, improving flexibility, boosting the immune system and increasing blood circulation. This form of bodywork is usually performed without the use of oils while the massage recipient lies on the floor on a mat wearing loose, comfortable clothes.
Thai Massage encourages the flow of energy, bringing harmony and balance to the body. It works on the meridian (energy) lines and uses pressure points, stretching and compression to release tension from the body. The technique involves putting gentle but firm pressure on the body with the arms, forearms, palms and thumbs, as well as pulling of the limbs, fingers and back while the receiver is put into many yoga-like positions. Practitioners of the Thai method often use their feet and their own body weight, too.
Many clients come to like Thai Massage during a trip to the Far East, but why not enjoy it also here in London in the comfort of your home?
For whom do we recommend it?
While Thai Massage is suitable for all ages, it should be noted, that it is a style that uses deep pressure and there is a lot of stretching involved. Because of the nature of the massage, you might experience pain in certain areas due to tightness of muscles. It is mostly suitable for people with severe muscle tension and fatigue.
