Description: Thai Massage, like most Asian methods, is a technique used to give mankind an experience of the total body. It is similar to acupressure and Shiatsu combined with stretches and yogic Asana. Its nickname has become, "yoga for the lazy". A Thai Massage will strengthen the client physically and harmonize their energy so a new life experience can arise. Thai Massage also works on the major meridians, also called energy lines or Nadis, which run throughout the human body. It aims to harmonize the body, to loosen blocks, and to recoup deficiencies along the energy lines. In contrast to traditional Chinese medicine, which uses acupuncture to manipulate the pressure points, Thai Massage stimulates these same points with healing touch. Therefore, the points suffer less stress, and life energy, or Prana, is allowed to freely circulate. Along with influencing the energetic side, The Thai Massage also works on the physical body. Starting at the feet and progressing up to the hair, the client’s body will be moved, loosened and stretched. Thai Massage combines techniques usually found isolated in the western physiotherapies including Trigger Point Treatments, Myofascial Techniques, Manual Therapy and others. The combination of energetic and physical aspects is unique to the Thai Massage, and so are its effects. A Thai Massage is a gift for the body, speech (energy) and mind (heart). A Thai Massage is also a way to prevent sickness. It helps to dissolve blocks before they manifest psychologically or physically, and it also improves flexibility. Injured athletes, as well as those suffering from handicaps or stress are another target group. Essentially, anyone will benefit from this powerful technique. Concerning the treatment, a Thai Massage is a floor massage. The fully dressed client lies on a pad or light mattress. An ingenious system of movements allows the therapist to manipulate the client without much effort. Every movement is designed to support the client as well as the therapist. The massage is given in silence to allow the therapist to understand the client and to give the client a chance to focus and learn about himself without distraction. To give and to experience a Thai Massage is a meditative practice. At the end of a one or two hour treatment, both the receiver and the therapist will feel relaxed and energized.
