An Introduction to
Thai Massage Therapy

 

Thai massage is an ancient form of bodywork that uses passive stretching and gentle pressure along the sen (energy) lines.

It has some resemblance to shiastu, acupressure, and yoga. The massage is performed on the floor on a mat, and the client remains fully clothed.

Thai massage improves flexibility, reduces tension, stimulates internal organs, and balances the body's energy system.
