About Thai massage
Thai massage is an ancient healing practise that uses gentle pressure and stretching techniques to relieve muscle and joint tensions, relax and balance the body’s energy systems.
Unlike other forms of massage, such as Swedish massage, there is a lot of interaction in Thai massage between you and your massage therapist. They use the weight of their body to move you into various positions to achieve passive stretching.
Some of the main benefits of Thai massage:
- Lowers stress levels
- Releases endorphins which act as a natural painkiller in the bloodstream
- Boosts the body with energy
- Calms the mind and body
- Stimulates circulation
- Relieves body aches
- Improves flexibility
- Promotes a more restful sleep
