Thai traditional massage basics
Thai massage is an ancient art of body therapy for healing, health, and transformation. It is an interactive manipulation of the body using passive stretching and gentle pressure along energy lines. These movements help to:
- adjust the skeletal structure
- increase flexibility
- relieve muscular and joint tension
- stimulate internal organs
- balance the body's energy system

The effect is very relaxing as well as energizing. Receiving a Thai massage is like doing yoga without giving any effort while also getting accupressure treatments.

Sessions typically last two hours, and are performed on a floor mat with the client dressed in comfortable loose clothing. Thai massage uses two primary procedures: applying gentle pressure with the hands and feet, and a wide variety of passive stretching movements. With these techniques, applied in a quiet atmosphere, space is created in the musco-skeletal structure, the body begins to open and regain flexibility and ease of movement, while the mind gently returns to calm alertness. Tension and toxic material are released from the joints, muscles, and connective tissue. The energy of the body, as well as the internal organs, are stimulated by pressure on peripheral reflex points.

The work displays an inherent knowledge of the inner workings of the body, a knowledge that developed over centuries of practice. This practice satisfies physical and emotional needs, and perhaps even assists in spiritual needs of people.

This ancient therapy is beneficial for young or old, healthy or not very healthy. Thai massage have been used for countless generations to treat degenerative conditions and promote well being.
