Is Thai massage right for me?
This yoga style massage involves lots of stretching and yoga-style movements to improve flexibility in joints, muscles and connective tissues, relieving body pain, back pain and shoulder pain.
Over 2,500 years old, Thai yoga massage includes the application of gentle pressure along the meridians or energy lines of the body, to stimulate internal organs. While providing all the health benefits usually associated with massage, it is especially good for stress and tension relief in both the mind and the body.

Thai yoga massage is carried out on a mat laid out on the floor. The therapist uses their hands and feet to apply pressure to the client’s fully-clothed body and to manoeuvre it into a range of gentle stretching movements.
Thai yoga massage is normally carried out in silence so the therapist can focus on the healing work of stimulating the client’s life force (or ‘chi’).
Thai yoga massage is suitable for most people, but should be avoided if you have osteoporosis or artificial joints. If in doubt, consult your GP.
