What’s Thai Massage, You Say?

Thai Massage is the ancient healing bodywork of Thailand. It involves acupressure, compression, and deep facilitated stretching, and it’s based on wisdom much like that of traditional Chinese medicine. There are many sen (also called lines, or channels) in the body that correspond to the different organs and systems of the human body, so not only does it feel good, but when you receive a Thai massage your whole self (including all the body systems) is getting a serious tune-up.  It sounds interesting, but I haven’t quite got you yet, right? Well, it’s a little hard to explain, but it’s relaxing and energizing all at the same time.  One of my clients described it as “the best of yoga and massage.”

Thai massage is performed on the floor (on a very comfortable massage mat!), and the receiver is full clothed the entire time.  Often time, people who are uncomfortable taking their clothes off feel a sense of security knowing that they don’t have to.  The massage itself is deep and rhythmic.  In my opinion as a massage therapist, this kind of bodywork is better at addressing some issues where particular body parts are very stuck, and the inflexibility is what’s causing the pain. In cases like this I often suggest to clients that they try Thai massage, and in every situation that I’ve encountered the client has left my office with much greater range of motion, less pain, and an overall feeling of energy and ease. This Summer I’m offering a Special for New Massage Clients: $100 for 2 massages (1 hour of Thai, and 1 hour of your choice). If you have any questions, or if you’d like to schedule a Thai Massage, please feel free to contact me through the form below, or by phone: 349-4986.
