Thai massage is a traditional therapeutic massage for relieving stress and tension, and for the treatment of back pain, stiff neck, shoulder pain, and sports injuries including muscle and tendon strain.
Traditional Thai Massage technique is known as the most holistic type of therapy. It combines modern scientific knowledge of the anatomy of physiology with the disciplines of traditional oriental medicine. It employs combinations of rhythmic acupressure, body rocking and deep assisted stretches to relieve muscular tension and enables more blood to be carried throughout the body. A number of gentle techniques are carried out using the feet, knees, elbows, palms, forearms, and thumbs.
Treatment generally falls into one of two categories; full body routines and localised therapy and may last between 30 minutes to 2 hours.
