Thai Massage is a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. It has been practiced for centuries in Far East and Thailand. It is a deep tissue massage using no oils as do many Western Massages. Thai Massage incorporates the use of hands, thumbs, elbows, forearms, knees and feet to manipulate various body zones with acupressure, deep muscle compression, yoga, stretching, joint mobilization and reflexology. The massage focuses on the muscoskeletal system ( the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues ). It is especially beneficial for those who find themselves stiff, sore or tired from over exertion in work or sports. A Thai Massage will leave the client feeling totally refreshed and invigorated. The body will benefit from the release of tension, restoration of vitality and allows the free flow of the bodies energy. It improves circulation, flexibility and muscle tone as well as encouraging lymphatic functions to help detoxify the body.
The ancient art of massage came to Thailand ( Siam ) over 2500 years ago and was first practiced only in the home. After Siam was invaded the practitioners of this early form of massage were dispersed to other Asian countries. Later they returned to Siam to continue their inherited art.
Successive kings promoted and developed native, natural massage techniques even though it was mainly focused in the family. The art of massage has been passed down through the family practitioners over the generations. Today it is very popular both in Thailand and throughout the developed world.
