What is thai massage?
Thai massage, also called Thai Yoga massage, is an ancient and sacred system of healing with roots in yoga, Ayurvedic medicine and Buddhist spiritual practice.  It is a unique and powerful system of bodywork, which combines rhythmic massage, acupressure, gentle stretching, energy work, and meditation.  The goal of Thai massage is to stimulate and balance the flow of healing energy within the body, opening blocked areas and bringing the client deeper into balance and harmony.  It creates a powerful release of stress and tension, improves flexibility and circulation, increases vitality and deepens the connection between mind and body in both giver and receiver.

Thai massage is unique from Western forms of massage in that it is practiced on a padded mat with the client wearing loose, comfortable clothing.  The client is moved through a series of postures and positions by the practitioner using palms, thumbs, elbows, forearms and feet.  It is often described as “having yoga done to you.”  Recipients of Thai massage usually report a heightened sense of well-being following a session, which often manifests as a sensation of feeling simultaneously energized and relaxed, invigorated and deeply peaceful.

Foundation & History of Thai Massage

The foundation of Thai massage is the rhythmic compression on energy lines called “Sên lines” and pressure points (“Sên points”) that are found throughout the whole body. There are 72,000 Sên lines in the body with practitioners focusing on the 10 major ones. The belief is that wherever energy is blocked along these lines, there is a greater likelihood of dysfunction, pain and disease. Practitioners of Thai massage believe that applying pressing to points along these lines helps increase the flow of energy in blocked areas and redirect it to parts of the body that need healing.
