What is it?
Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage.
In a Thai yoga massage the therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of
yoga-like stretches. Muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure are also used during treatment.
Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work. Thai yoga massage is descried as being
both relaxing and energizing.
What should I expect during my visit?
Thai yoga massage is done on a padded mat on the floor.
No oil is applied, so you are fully dressed. You are usually asked to bring or wear comfortable clothing to the massage.
A typical Thai yoga massage is 60 minutes to two hours long.
