Thai Massage

table Thai massage

Table Thai massage, part of the ancient holistic healing system of Thailand, provides the release of long held tension with passive stretching and gentle pressure applied along the body’s energy meridian lines.

This type of bodywork is wonderful for athletes as well as people who sit or stand too much.

Typically the work is done clothed with the client wearing loose comfortable clothing. Many clients fall asleep even though they are being passively stretched throughout the session.

Clients say they feel extremely relaxed, less sore and tight. Some clients even say they feel taller after a table Thai session, because they feel their posture improve, less tension, and more ease in their body.

Massage Stones

herbal compress massage

Thai Herbal Compresses have been used for thousands of years alone or in combination with massage treatments to bring balance to mind, body and spirit. As part of traditional Thai medicine the herbs in the compress are combined to alleviate blockages in the body’s energy, stress, fatigue, joint stiffness, strained muscles and tendons, and inflammation. In addition blood circulation and relaxation are increased. The compress holds heat from steam to activate the herbs, opening the skin’s pores and blood vessels. This results in nourishing the body’s tissues. The aromas are absolutely wonderful including ginger, turmeric, lemon grass, camphor, Kaffir lime and tamarind. The best smelling massage therapy session you will ever receive!
