Echoing ancient traditions and therapeutic disciplines, Traditional Thai Massage known as Nuat Boran was developed 2500 years ago by Thai Buddhist monks as a healing modality. It is a combination of influences of cultural spheres from India, China and Southeast Asia.
Traditional Thai Massage is performed wearing loose Thai-style clothing, and is conducted on an Asian mat. You will be provided with loose clothing during your massage and no oil is used. A combination of gentle rocking motion, rhythmic acupressure and assisted stretching serve to deeply relax and revitalize your body and mind.
Traditional Thai Massage combines yoga position which will be led by the therapist without any effort on your part. Benefits include increased flexibility, relief of joint and muscle tension and a balance of the body’s energy system.
The therapist will use her body to gracefully guide and move your body in various positions during the session. It is both deeply relaxing and energizing. Your session will be personalized, focusing and targeting problem areas with the overall goal of nurturing and rebalancing the body, the mind and the spirit. Thai massage has its roots from spiritual tradition and its purpose is to heal you in many ways and it is not to be confused with sensual massage.
