Thai Traditional Massage
Thai traditional massage has strong links with the Buddhist system of healing. A blend of yoga, acupressure and reflexology, it is designed to open the body’s natural energy flow, encouraging healing and relaxation. The therapist moves the body into yoga-like positions, stretching muscles on a rhythmic movement of gentle rocking, while using pressure and compression to release tension.
