Thai Massage

There are two massage therapies available: Thai Body Massage and Thai Foot Massage.

 

Thai Body Massage

Thai Massage is luxurious, dynamic, fluid, intuitive and deeply therapeutic.  It is a spiritual practice and an ancient healing art.  It is much like a gentle form of the martial arts and acts as a meditation for both giver and receiver.  This ancient holistic therapy promotes wellness and vitality by helping your body, mind and soul return to a state of balance, harmony, flexibility and health.

 

In Thai Massage, there is no oil used, the practitioner uses a floor mat, and the client wears comfortable attire.  At a slow rhythmic pace, the body is compressed, stretched and rocked in order to relieve tension, stress and pain, improve flexibility, circulation and muscle tone and adjust the skeletal structure.  An outstanding quality of Thai Massage is the constant rocking motion involved that becomes hypnotic to both client and practitioner.

 

In the course of a customized session that typically lasts ½ hour to 2 hours, the practitioner uses his/her hands, forearms, elbows, knees, heels and feet alternately to guide the recipient into various postures while remaining focused on ergonomics, breath and his/her centre.  Thai Bodywork is relaxing and reparative at the same time.

Thai Foot Massage

 

Thai Foot Massage is a massage of the feet and lower legs.  It is both invigorating and deeply relaxing involving hands on massage, stretching and acupressure to stimulate reflex points.  It has elements of Shiatsu, Reflexology and Chinese massage incorporated into the treatment.  Thai Foot Massage makes use of a traditional Thai foot massage stick as well as using the palms, fingers, thumbs and knuckles to work the feet.  The techniques are thought to stimulate and open these energy channels leaving you feeling relaxed, balanced and invigorated.

 

Thai Foot Massage is great for tired feet, improving circulation and lymph movement in the feet and lower legs and improving flexibility.  If you have tried reflexology you will also enjoy this treatment but will be surprised how different the techniques feel.  Like reflexology, at the end of the session you will feel relaxed yet energised and invigorated.  The effects may be felt at the first treatment or it may take a few treatments for changes to be noticed.
