TRADITIONAL THAI MASSAGE
Discover the Benefits of Thai Massage
Experience the ancient healing art of Thai Massage. Our skilled therapists use a combination of acupressure, stretching, and deep tissue techniques to relieve muscle tension, improve flexibility, and promote overall relaxation. Treat yourself to this rejuvenating therapy and feel the stress melt away.
Thai Massage occurs on a comfortable floor mat or on a massage table for those who are unable to use the floor mat. The practitioner uses hands, thumbs, forearms, elbows, knees and feet to stimulate meridians and pressure points throughout the body in a meditative, flowing rhythm. The recipient is also guided into passive yoga postures linking breath with movement to stretch muscles, compress and decompress joints and increase range of motion.
Thai Massage is a little different from the standard massage techniques most clients are familiar with and is practiced in two variations: Floor and Table. With Thai massage, the client remains fully clothed while the therapist uses their own body to assist in various stretches and maneuvers to help elongate the muscles and release tension.
Some movements in Thai massage may be intense with limited to no variability in pressure/intensity. This can be thought of as an "all-or-nothing" position as it is either something you can tolerate or cannot. As your therapist is getting to know you, it is important to communicate what you are feeling during the massage. This will help the therapist to adjust to your needs. Your therapist will work with you on determining what movements and stretches that are best for you.
Some medical concerns may be indicative that Thai massage is not for you. Like any new medical treatment, it is always best to consult a medical professional to ensure massage is right for you.

Q: What happens next?
A: If you indicated any symptoms or conditions above, we may contact you prior to your appointment to get more information for the therapist to determine the severity of any conditions indicated on the form. It is up to the therapist to decide whether they feel it is in the best interest of the client to perform the service. In the event that the therapist determines they are unable to provide the service safely, we will do our best to contact you in advance to go about modifying or cancelling the appointment.
Q: If I can have Thai Massage, should I prepare for my appointment?
A: Yes. It is recommended that you should hydrate before and after your appointment to minimize adverse reactions and improve outcomes.
Q: What can I expect after my massage?
A: Like after all massages, it can be normal to experience some symptoms after the service: light headedness, sinus (or facial pressure), a feeling of dehydration, muscle soreness, and fatigue are just a few of the most commonly reported symptoms after a massage. In the case of Thai massage, you may experience more lingering muscle soreness or even tightness the next day. Exposing your body to regular Thai massage may help to lessen these symptoms over time and improve outcomes overall.
