About the Treatment
- What is a Thai Massage?
The technique of Thai Massage with yoga originates from China, India and South-East Asia combined, and hence the framework of the treatment varies among therapists and throughout the world.
Overall a Thai Massage involves the therapist guiding your body through a series of yoga positions whilst rubbing and massaging various areas of the body, focusing on pressure points and lines of energy (acupressure). This process will aid to relieve certain areas of stress and tension and also improving your flexibility at the same time.
- Why choose a Thai Massage?
Thai Massage is recommended for those who would like to improve their flexibility and have a unique treatment that will also leave you feeling refreshed and energised. This treatment can aid with pain relief in the back and shoulders. It is suggested for those who prefer a deeper massage and who practice yoga and would like to apply it in a different setting. However, no prior experience with yoga is required so it is perfect for those wanting to try something completely new!

What to expect…
Initially the therapist will interpret what you would like to gain from the treatment and whether you have any specific medical problems that they may aid with or take into account. They will then explain the process of Thai Massage and what you should expect.
This treatment does not require any undressing and so you will remain fully clothed, with comfortable clothing recommended. You will then place yourself on a mat on the floor rather than a massage table.
The therapist will guide you through the movements and yoga positions with their hands whilst using firm pressure to release physical and emotional tension by applying this to energy points. The thumb, elbow, knee and even foot may be used by the therapist to carry this out. They will also encourage you to be engaged in the process of the treatment.
After your treatment you will feel uplifted and peaceful. We advise you to relax and to drink plenty of water in order to aid removal of toxins that will have been released as well as to rehydrate the body. Alcohol should be avoided and physical activity shouldn’t be undertaken until you have had time to recover.
