WHAT IS A THAI TABLE MASSAGE TREATMENT?
Traditional Thai Yoga massage is an ancient form of therapeutic healing. Thai Massage has its roots in India. From there, Thai Massage was brought to Thailand over 2,000 years ago by Ayurvedic doctors and Buddhist monks. Thai massage has its roots in a spiritual tradition, and its purpose is to heal a person physically, emotionally and spiritually. Thai massage uses passive stretching and gently pressure along the body's energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension and balance the body’s energy systems. It combines acupressure, energy balancing, stretching, and applied yoga exercises. Thai massage is both deeply relaxing and energising.
Thai Table Massage is a special adaptation of traditional Thai Massage techniques for the salon/clinic setting where the treatment is done on a couch instead of the floor. It is a full body treatment comprising working the energy lines, acupressure techniques, yoga-style deep stretching. The client remains fully clothed for this treatment.
There are numerous benefits for anyone receiving and giving a general Thai massage although certain benefits are more profound when performed on a table due to increased leverage.
- Helps to alleviate pain
- Induces deep relaxation
- Unblocks and rebalances the energy of the body, spirit and mind
- Helps to restore postural balance
- Decreased stress
- Increases range of motion in the joints
- Increases flexibility of joints and muscles
- Rejuvenates the endocrine system
- Increases vitality
- Ideal for shy or nervous clients - as it is not necessary for the client to undress
