Thai massage

Thai massage is a type of ancient bodywork practiced throughout Thailand that incorporates elements of massage and yoga-like postures to relax and balance the body. Unlike Western table massage, Thai massage is performed on a floor mat with the receiver fully-clothed and no oils or lotions are used. Static and rhythmic compressions are combined with assisted stretches to relax muscle tissue and increase flexibility. For this reason, Thai massage is often called “Thai yoga” or “lazy man’s yoga”.

Thai massage is great for everyone, but especially beneficial to those looking to increase their flexibility and range of motion. This often includes athletes and people with limited flexibility due to extensive time at a desk or driving.
