Thai massage therapy is a combination of acupressure and yoga-like stretching techniques that employs the use of the therapist's fingers, thumbs, elbows, arms and feet on the body's muscles, pressure points and energy lines ("Sen") to clear energy blockages and balance the body's energy. The theoretical foundation of Thai massage is based on the concept of invisible energy lines running through the body called "Energy-Based Healing System".
Thai massage is believed to have been developed by Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, physician to Buddha, more than 2,500 years ago in India. It made its way to Thailand, where the Ayurvedic techniques and principles gradually became influenced by traditional Chinese medicine.
Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage. Thai massage is also called Thai yoga massage, because the therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches. Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work.
Thai Massage can be performed either on a massage table or a massage mattress. Loose-fitting, comfortable clothing is worn by the client at all times, and no creams or oils are used. People describe Thai massage as both relaxing and energizing.
The purpose of Thai massage is to bring the body, mind, and spirit into a state of balance and harmony, providing an opportunity for self-healing. Different from other forms of bodywork - smoothness, rhythm and flow are three words that come to mind.
Oil massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the oil massage technique is to relax the entire body.
Deep Tissue massage is our concentrated therapy which combines a customized massage with remedial products (such as herbal balm) to provide deep muscle pain relief from injuries and chronic conditions. Grand deep muscle oil therapy is ideal for anyone who suffers from chronic pain or limited mobility due to athletic training, repetitive movements, and overuse.
Deep Tissue massage focuses on stretching fascia, a three-dimensional web of connective tissue that surrounds, supports and penetrates all of the muscles, bones, nerves and organs. Deep muscle massage works layer by layer through connective tissue and muscles down to the deepest accessible layers to change posture and create freedom of movement by releasing fascial adhesions and chronic muscle contracture. Adhesions and scar tissue form in muscles because of injury, chronic poor posture, chronic or acute inflammation and repetitive motions. Deep tissue massage therapists use their fingers, thumbs, fists, forearms and elbows to stretch each muscle and fascia layer.
