Thai Body Massage 

STRETCH. RELEASE. CLEANSE. BALANCE

Traditional Thai Massage and Thai medicine was founded in 500BC by Jivaka Komarabhacca. He codified a healing system that combines acupressure, reflexology and assisted yoga postures. Thai Massage is generally based on a mixture of Indian and Chinese traditions of medicine.

Unlike Swedish massage techniques, which use oils with the person lying on a massage table, in Thai Body Massage, the client lies on a Thai mat on the floor in comfortable and loose clothing, as the therapist uses their hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of passive yoga-like stretches. The therapist also applies deep muscle compression, joint mobilisation, and acupressure to clear blocked meridians, "sens", or energy channels in the body, to heal the client mentally, physically and emotionally. The combination of stretching, movement, and pressure is what ultimately distinguishes Thai Body Massage from other types of massage.

Having a Thai Body Massage with your partner is a therapeutic, healing, relaxing, and bonding experience for both parties. It can be used as part of a couple's therapy programme or just to enjoy the beneficial experience with your loved one. This joint therapy is offered in Bath only.
