Thai Traditional Massage
Your vitality is restored as slow rhythmic compressions and stretches are administered (without oil) along the body’s energy lines using the palms of the hands, thumbs, elbows, knees and feet. Gentle stretching, acupressure and joint stimulation frees your entire body making you feel fresh and alive ready to tackle the slopes.
Thai Oil Massage
The combination of muscle compression and exotic healing scents puts your body and mind into a heavenly state of rest. Tension melts, aches disappear, and mobility is restored to problem areas. Increased blood flow facilitates healing and gives comfort to tired muscles and peace and clarity to your mind.
Thai Foot Massage
Exotic oils and creams rejuvenate tired feet and ankles. As you recline in special Thai foot massage chairs your therapist stimulates pressure points which aid in the relaxation and healing of your entire body.
History of Thai Massage
Located in Southeast Asia, Thailand is situated between 2 of the most ancient civilized countries China and India. Thai Traditional Medicine is an integration of Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda of India and Thai wisdom of herbal use and medical practice. Thai Massage is an essential component of Thai Traditional Medicine and its history dates back to the time of Lord Buddha. Thai medicine believes the human body is composed from the soul and the fundamental four elements of earth, water, wind and fire. Diseases are caused when there are imbalances of the four elements.
The Process of Thai Massage
Thai massage is based on 10 energy lines similar to those of Chinese Medicine. All lines are about 2 cm of depth under the skin and spread out all over the body. While Thai Massage theory believes that personal health and well being depend on the balance of the 4 elements, the wind element employs these energy lines to flow and transmit energy throughout the body. When pressing on the lines, the pressure will stimulate the flow of internal energy (wind) in the body. This will directly heal ailing organs and glands and eliminate toxins out of body tissues. Thai Traditional Massage requires a high pressure to stimulate massage acupressure points and therefore differs from oil massage and Swedish Massage. It sometimes causes pain but will be re-energizing and refreshing afterwards.
Standard Time for Thai Massage
Not many people outside of Thailand are aware that a proper Thai Traditional Massage should be performed over 2 hours. Over this period there are 5 main steps followed that ensure the energy lines are completed and the full benefit flows through to the whole body.
