Thai Massage is an ancient form of bodywork that originated in Thailand about 2,500 years ago. It was during this time that massage became a keystone of health and wellness, and Thai Massage has since continued to spread throughout the world. The practice of Thai Massage has been adapted for use in modern massage clinics while preserving the traditional Thai approach to healing. Thai Massage treatments implement several techniques such as: passive stretching, reflexology, acupressure, heat application and meditative breathing. The purpose of Thai Massage is to bring the body and mind to a state of complete relaxation, awareness and balance.

Traditional Thai Massage is performed on a mat on the floor, which allows the therapist to use their body weight to apply pressure and gain leverage for stretching. Thai Massage can also be performed on the table, where the client can be either clothed or unclothed and draped. An important element of Thai Massage is the use of heat, or aromatherapy, to warm up the muscles allowing for deeper body work. During the massage the therapist will climb on the table and use their hands, arms, feet and elbows to engage in a series of stretching, compression, and massage strokes to relax and open up the muscles. Balanced aware breathing is helpful when receiving this kind of bodywork and the therapist will help maintain breath awareness.
The key component of Thai Massage is movement. Assisted stretching allows the therapist to access muscles and attachment sites that can be difficult to palpate when the client is lying still on the table. This will also allow the therapist to work on muscles that are activated during daily postures such as driving or sitting at a desk. Throughout the session the therapist will guide the client into the different positions, thereby increasing circulation to all areas and bringing awareness to areas of pain or soreness. Thai Massage also considers the motion of energy through the body and focuses on bringing body energy to a state of balance. Because it targets all channels of the body Thai Massage will help decrease insomnia, stress, depression, anxiety and PMS.
Receiving Thai Massage will help increase: blood circulation, joint range of motion, flexibility, respiratory health, and lengthen the muscles. Thai massage is useful in the treatment of back pain, frozen shoulder, sciatic pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, and headaches or migraines.
