What is Thai Massage ?
Traditional Thai Massage, also known as Ancient Massage or Thai Yoga Massage, dates back more than three hundred years in its present form, with its origins going back more than 5,000 years to ancient India and China. While Thai Massage combines elements of Ayeurvedic medicine, Hatha yoga and Chinese acupressure, it has evolved into a system that is entirely unique and is widely regarded as one of the best systems of therapeutic massage.
Benefits of Thai Massage Many health benefits have been associated with Thai Massage, including:

Technique: Combining gentle, yoga-like stretches with massage of the muscles, tendons, pressure points and energy lines, or Sen. While there are hundreds of energy lines in the body, this type of massage focuses on the ten main energy lines, or Sip Sen.
This type of Massage is done on a mat as opposed to a table. This allows the practitioner to get the body leverage necessary for the stretches and postures characteristically used in Thai Massage. Depending on the needs of the client,
Massage techniques may also employ the elbows, knees and feet in addition to the hands.
The pressure can be varied according to your preference. Less pressure should be used the first time, while more pressure can be applied as your body can tolerate deeper work.
