Thai Massage is performed on a cushioned mat on the floor (usually fully clothed) which allows specific movements to be carried out. A combination of pressure using palms, thumbs, fingers, elbows and feet, and additional stretching movements have a releasing effect on the body in the same way as Yoga postures do. These movements are usually repeated several times, in varying levels of pressure or action, to release energy blocks and tension in your body. The 2 hour Traditional Thai Massage treatment uses the more advanced Thai Yoga streches within the massage.
Your Thai Massage Therapist will move around the body in a calm and methodical way, which induces a meditative quality to the treatment. The whole body will be covered, with you lying on your back, side, front and sitting positions, with pillows for support as necessary.
Throughout the body there are energy lines, known within Thai Medicine as Sen Lines or Sen Channels, which support the flow of energy on a physical, emotional and mental level. The main 10 Sen Lines are focused on within Thai Massage practice, via pressure points and stretches, removing blockages and balancing the whole system to leave you energised yet relaxed and calm.
