Traditional Thai massage is an ancient healing system that combines broad and targeted acupressure,stimulation and manipulation of energy lines called sen, and assisted yoga postures. During the massage the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked in order to clear energy blockages and relieve tension. The practitioner uses thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, knees and feet to create a dance of movement on 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.
