Thai massage is based on ancient Chinese and yogic traditions. Inspirational stretches are combined with massaging rhythmically along energy lines using thumb and palm pressure. The treatment expresses the grace and choreography of a dance sequence, whilst the client remains entirely passive and relaxed. Comfortable clothes are recommended for the session, which is practiced on a mat on the floor. People of varying degrees of suppleness can be worked on, and can enjoy feeling open, stretched, invigorated and relaxed.
