Thai Traditional Massage
Thai Traditional Massage (or Nuad Boran) has been developing for over 2000 years.
It focuses on circulation of vital energy in major pathways called sen. These major pathways are massaged, while important pressure points are stimulated to help break down blockages, stimulate energy flow and restore balance and harmony.
Traditional Thai Massage uses no oils or lotions, and the recipient remains clothed during the session. There is constant body contact between the masseuse and client, but instead of just rubbing on muscles, the whole body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked in order to clear energy blockages and relieve tension. The masseuse uses thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, knees and feet to stimulate the energy flow along the pathways of the body. In this process, joints are opened, muscles and tendons are stretched, internal organs are toned, and energy is balanced. The overall effect is one of deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and physical and mental well being.
Traditional Thai Massage is not appropriate in cases of high fever, infection, recent injuries (particularly bone fractures), muscle and skeleton injuries, high or low blood pressure, heart diseases and disorders, all forms of cancer, or early and late stages of pregnancy.
