Thai massage originated 2500 years ago in India, developing out of the Ayurvedic and yoga traditions, with later influence by Chinese medicine. It combines deep compressions, passive stretching, joint mobility and acupressure to relieve muscle tension, enhance circulation, improve flexibility and balance energy. Typical responses to this bodywork include feeling taller and lighter, relaxed and invigorated, and having greater ease of movement. Clients who have experienced yoga and physical therapy often note the similarities to this bodywork. Thai massage is received on a mat while wearing comfortable clothing and is beneficial for people of all ages and lifestyles. I will tailor the session to your needs - whether you want to feel the burn of a deep, intense treatment or have a more gentle experience.
My training in Deep Tissue massage has given me many tools and techniques with which to relieve pain and tension in the body: scrubbing, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, sculpting and reciprocal inhibition, just to name a few. And, yes, I'm happy to explain those methods. I don't consider it a complete massage if I haven't given you at least a little information and a simple, practical exercise or two that will help to extend the progress made on the table or mat.
It's simply a fact that too much stress and anxiety weakens our defenses and worsens existing health issues. Massage has been shown to lower blood pressure, improve blood and lymph circulation and strengthen the immune system. Relaxation as a focus of massage is completely legitimate as a means of improving overall health and well being.
This just means that I will use whatever knowledge and skill I currently have to effectively address your needs.
