Traditional Thai Massage

Meditation in motion

The Traditional Thai Massage is a unique healing system that has its origins in India, Ayurveda and Yoga.

A session will incorporate the manipulation of energy lines, gentle stretches and assisted Yoga Asanas.

Together these actions result in a comprehensive full-body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system and balances the body energetically.

The massage is traditionally performed on a mat on the floor wearing comfortable clothing.

The deep relaxation induced by the Thai Massage will allow each individual to enter a meditative space creating a wholeness of mind, body and spirit.
