Thai massage is a technique that was initiated around 7,000 years ago in India. Its fundamentals are based on yoga, Chinese medicine, Buddhism and Ayurveda (a traditional non-conventional Indian medicine). Unlike the other types of massage, the person receiving a Thai massage participates actively in the process.
So expect to engage with the therapist who will use his or her hands, feet, knees and legs to guide and stretch you through a series of yoga-like moves to purify your body and release all its negative energy. The technique includes rhythmic and slow pressing of key points on the body to develop physical and spiritual improvement.
Thai massage also improves both blood and lymph circulation by ensuring a faster discharge of unnecessary metabolic waste, increases flexibility of tendons, muscles and ligaments, boosts energy, and relieves headache by applying pressure to specific energy channels. Not only this, Thai massage also reduces stress and slows down the aging process.
