WHAT IS TRADITIONAL THAI MASSAGE?

Traditional Thai Massage is also known as Thai Yoga Massage, Thai Yoga Body Work, Yoga for Two, or Yoga for Lazy People.

It is an ancient Thai body work that combines and has its roots in Indian Yoga type stretches and Chinese Acupressure. It works on the ten main energy lines (Sen Sib), also known as meridians, of the human body. 

Applying pressure on the Sen lines is what makes Thai massage unique. Blockages in the energy flow of the Sen can lead to an imbalance or disease in the body. Thai Massage promotes the flow of energy, suppleness, releases great amounts of tension in the body and gently aligns the spine.

A healing art that is so dynamic, it can be used as a highly effective therapy when ailments and blockages occur, as well as assist in maintaining a preventative and healthy lifestyle.
