Why should I get a Thai massage?
Thai Massage is one of the best therapeutic massage/bodywork treatments available for chronic pain and sports injuries. It is also an amazing treatment if you're experiencing lower back pain, sciatica, hip pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, jaw pain, arthritis, limited mobility or chronic pain. It is an outstanding way to help promote total relaxation and stress reduction. These actions result in a comprehensive full body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system and balances the body energetically. Thai massage increases flexibility, releasing both deep and superficial tension, enhances the body’s natural energy flow, and promotes inner peace with a quiet mind. Initially affecting the physical body, it can then gradually reach the more subtle life forces - the emotions, thoughts, and senses. It is common for recipients to go into a Yoga Nidra state where time and space disappear and the healing takes place on a deeper level. Most clients report that following a session, they feel taller, more graceful, and more integrated, and they experience an exquisite sense of lightness in their body.
What can I expect in a Thai Massage session?
During a Thai massage, the practitioner uses their hands, elbows, knees, and feet to compress muscles, release tense points and gently stretches the body allowing it to relax, open and literally decompress. The Thai method traces and clears ten energy (Sen) lines, which run along the fascia, covering all muscle groups and organs, reaching the major body systems. Thai Massage also activates the Parasympathetic Nervous System: which immediately lowers your sense of stress, brings health benefits like reducing blood pressure and strengthening the immune system, and lifts your mood. Though active for the practitioner, this is completely passive for the client. Thai bodywork is practiced on a heated mat designed for comfort. For total ease, the client remains fully clothed.
After a Thai massage session, clients tend to feel as if they have been given a new body, one that is more limber, open and more alive. It is a true full-body tune-up. This work is also effective for treating specific neuromuscular injuries, including muscle pain, spasm, dysfunction, and chronic tightness.

Don't forget to add herbs!
Thai Herbal massage uses hot herbal compresses that are applied to the body to alleviate pain and inflammation by opening skin pores and transferring medicating heat to the muscles, joints and energy lines. Imagine being covered in herbal heating pads. Herbal compress therapy helps to harmonize and relax the body, to loosen energy blockages. Smelling and inhaling the herb-infused vapors induces deep relaxation. The herbs have a balancing effect on the mind and help to reduce stress. Using hot compresses on the chest, throat, and sinuses can also loosen mucus and open up the nasal passages.
