Thai massage is an ancient ayurvedic healing art. It is a meditative practice for both client and practitioner, reflecting the states of loving kindness and compassion. Thai massage has always been taught as a spiritual practice done with prayers and as a meditation.
Thai Massage is one of the hot “new” massages offered by most spas, but it was actually developed by Buddhist monks in Thailand as a healing modality 2,500 years ago. It uses passive stretching and gentle pressure along the body’s energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension and balance the body’s energy systems. It is both deeply relaxing and energizing.
Some people say Thai massage is a little like doing yoga without any effort, because the therapist will push your body into various positions without any work on your part.
