Traditional Thai Massage
Thai massage (also known as Thai Yoga massage) is a type of massage that involves stretching and deep massage. It is usually performed on a mat on the floor, and the client wears loose, comfortable clothes that allow for movement. The massage practitioner works with pressure points on the client’s body using hands, feet, and knees. The receiver is put into many yoga like positions during the course of the massage to achieve a deep relaxing stretch. There is a standard procedure and rhythm to the massage, which the practitioner will adjust to fit each individual client.
A full Thai massage session typically lasts 60 min or 90 min.
