What is Thai Massage?
Thai massage is an ancient form of bodywork rooted in Buddhism and developed in Thailand with influences from India and China. A complete Thai massage combines many techniques and modalities including: acupressure, energy line work (sen lines), joint mobilization, and passive assisted yoga stretching. Thai work is done on a futon-like mat on the floor. The recipient remains clothed, and little to no oil is used. Recipients may receive this profound form of body/energy work in prone, supine, side-lying, and seated positions. Thai massage is also known as Nuad Boran (“ancient massage”), assisted yoga, and Thai yoga massage.
