For over 2500 years this healing therapy has been taught, practised and handed down through generations of Thai people. Combining acupressure and stretching techniques using the therapist’s fingers, thumbs, elbows, arms and feet, the massage allows the body’s internal energy to flow more freely, thus boosting the client’s energy levels and alleviating conditions such as lower back pain, headaches and stress-related conditions.
It can help to relieve fatigue, muscular cramping and nervous tension; make muscle and joints more supple; stimulate the blood and lymph circulation for improved physical fitness; and improve body immunity for anti-aging N.B. This massage does not involve use of a massage medium such as oil or cream. It is carried out on a mat on the floor with the client wearing light, loose, comfortable clothing. When attending the course please ensure your own clothing is not restrictive, as the stretching techniques require freedom of movement of both therapist and client.
