Performed through your clothes, traditional Thai Massage leaves you in a state of sublime relaxation. Its mechanics show a strong Indian Ayurvedic and yogic influence, but a very disciplined emphasis on energy channels bretrays a link with Chinese Traditional Medicine. Thai Traditional Medicine has existed for over 1000 years, in pretty much the same form that is used today. Its recent world-wide spread has been quite phenomenal.

Different from other forms of bodywork — smoothness, rhythm and flow are three worlds that come to mind. Nothing is hurried; there are no sudden changes of rhythm or speed. Every technique melts into the next with total economy of motion; it looks like a beautifully choreographed performance. First time recipients of the massage react differently; some fin the pressing techniques – particularly those done with the thumb – a little uncomfortable; others are shocked at the degree of stretching their stiff body can achieve. Almost all feel relaxed, refreshed and much more flexible afterwards, and those who have regular Thai massage come to enjoy the deep pressure techniques and spectacular manipulations.
