Thai Massage

Thai Yoga Massage is a unique and powerful healing art that has been an integral part of traditional Thai medicine for over two thousands of years. Thai massage consists of acupressure, Yoga, reflexology, physiotherapy, meditation, energy healing, osteopathy and Ayurveda in a unique way. The therapist uses thumbs, palms, elbows, knees and feet to apply a combination of acupressure, gentle rocking and twisting, joint and spine mobilizations and assisted yoga stretches.

The Thais themselves call it nuad boran, which translates into English as ancient massage/bodywork. This bodywork is meant to enhance your physical and emotional wellbeing. This therapeutic art was directly rooted in the Indian healing traditions of Ayurveda medicine.

The fundamental theory of the Thai healing tradition derives from the concepts of vital energy and its pathways throughout the body. Closely related to other Asian traditions, we find many similarities with Ayurveda and Chinese medicine. Thai medicine focuses on the circulation of vital energy in ten major energy pathways. Important pressure points for diagnosis and treatment are found along these pathways, and hands-on therapy removes energy blockages and stimulates the free flow of vital energy.

Metta, translated as loving-kindness or friendliness, is a traditional Buddhist meditation practice, using positive affirmation techniques to develop compassion and generosity towards ourselves and others. When compassion for all life forms becomes the focus we often feel more connected to our own lives and everything else around us.
