What is Thai Massage?
Affectionately known as ‘yoga for the lazy person’, Thai massage is an ancient form of healing with origins in Eastern medicine that will benefit both giver and receiver with its integration of stretch, massage, self-care and energetic balancing.
Safe guided partner stretch and non-invasive acupressure massage techniques are applied directly to help concerns with muscle tightness, joint inflexibility, headaches, back pain, fatigue, anxiety and stress, shoulder and neck problems and dis-ease in the body such as digestive, menstrual and degenerative concerns. Professionals in dance, martial arts, yoga, physical therapy, Chiropractic and nursing as well at home self-care enthusiasts utilize this as a form of relaxation, rehabilitation and rejuvenation.
