history of thai massage

With its origins over 2500 years ago, Traditional Thai Massage is often called "yoga massage" because during this massage the body is gently stretched into yoga-like positions.

Similar to Japanese Shiatsu, it is an oil-free massage where the recipient wears loose cotton pants and a shirt during the treatment and lies on the floor on a special mat.

The therapist uses gentle and if necessary, vigorous pressure, pulling and stretching the body, utilizing all parts of the body. She may even use elbows and knees.

The purpose is to unblock any stagnation in the energy points or meridian to increase the flow of life force as is known in Thai.
