Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is Thai Traditional Massage?

Thai Traditional massage incorporates Hatha Yoga, acupressure and reflexology with origins dating back about 2500 years. The roots of Thai massage are traced back to the founder of the practice Shivaga Komarpaj, a doctor, friend and contemporary to the Buddha. Unlike the scooping and continuous strokes of Western massage, Thai Massage uses point pressure, muscle stretching and compression, done in a rhythmic movement of gentle rocking.

In Thai massage it is not just the hands that are used to free tension from the recipient’s body, but the therapists feet, forearms, knees, and elbows as well. Thai massage can move deeper into the mechanical functions of the body, working with deep muscle tension and joint mobility as well as nerve, muscle and ligament balancing.

 

Where will my massage or bodywork session take place?
