The origin of Thai massage is reputed to lead as far back as 2500 years ago and was invented by Shivago Komarpaj, Buddha’s personal physician. Thai massage is done without the use of oils as friction is uses to stimulate the muscles and other systems of the body. Utilizing deep static and rhythmic massage techniques the client is massaged by the therapist relying on their body weight to both hold the body in specific positions to stretch the muscles and massage them simultaneously.
If you have only ever had the traditional Swedish style of western massage, Thai massage is a great first step in branching out to the eastern traditions. It is relaxing and invigorating while giving the client a new therapy not so far away from their usual comfort zone.
