This treatment uses techniques drawn from ‘Nuad Thai’ – roughly translated as ‘Thai Yoga’. The massage focuses on specific pressure points and also employs some gentle stretching. For a proper Traditional Thai Massage, we use a floor futon rather than a standard massage table. We also provide you with cotton pyjamas to wear during the massage. No oil is used in this treatment.
If you prefer a ‘stationary’ and more relaxing treatment we recommend a Thai Aromatherapy massage, or alternatively we can adapt the traditional massage to use simpler stretches, which we can carry out on a table – feel free to discuss with us what you would like!
Traditional Thai Massage is an ancient technique with roots in Yoga, Ayurvedic medicine and Buddhist practice. This unique and complete system of Yoga therapy combines rhythmic massage, acupressure, gentle twisting, deep stretching and meditation. Thai Massage helps release tension, increase vitality and create wholeness of mind, body and spirit. A good Thai Massage is deep, stimulating and invigorating, or a wonderful form of relaxation. Our masseuses use their hands, elbows, knees and feet to apply the appropriate pressure, as well as gentle stretching positions. Why not treat yourself today?
