Thai Yoga Massage

A massage from head to toe, back to front and side to side. You will not leave feeling that any part has been left out.

The Thai culture developed this form of massage to work the ten sen, the energy lines that run through your body. If they are blocked, the energy may not flow correctly and illnesses, aches, tiredness, insomnia, disease and other malfunctions may appear. The massage will therefore aim to work these lines and release any blockage you may have.

Inspired by the Indian culture, Thai massage has acquired the yoga influence and throughout a treatment it may appear that someone is doing yoga to you. This can help with flexibility and the release of knots. The pressure is generally quite strong, but will be adapted to each individual, and one will feel like their whole body has been worked on, relaxed and stretched.

Reflexology

Reflexology has been around since 4000-5000 years ago when the ancient civilisations of India, China, Egypt and even the Indigenous tribes of North American Indians all had some form of stimulating ‘foot or hand massage’ that would bring about a better state of health.

“Mini maps” of the entire body can be found on our feet and hands, these are called reflexes as they are a reflection of each organ, muscle, tissue and nerve that is found in the body. By stimulating all of the body through these reflexes, one can help relieve congestion or stagnant energy and restore efficient circulation of both blood and lymph, improve nerve impulses and therefore promote the body to re-balance this area.

Reflexology is a wonderful relaxing therapy that stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system to be in charge and promote ‘rest and digest’ for the body to heal itself.

It is an incredibly powerful tool to promote self-healing and restore HOMEOSTASIS (The body’s natural state of Equilibrium)

Oil Massage

This oil massage is a strong and powerful massage that appeals as much to the active person as to the more sedentary one. Alternating effleurage, kneading, friction, pressure and slight stretching, the focus is on a deep work on each muscular zone. Its calming and stimulating effect is adapted to all types of people.

You will leave light as a feather and filled with a feeling of serenity and quietude.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a difference between Hand and Foot reflexology?

Yes and No. The mapping out of the organs of the body are the same on the feet and the hands, therefore they can be worked on both extremities. Therefore, if an infection or a fracture impedes the treatment on one of them, it is possible to treat on the other. However, our hands are much more used and worn than our feet (usually always protected in shoes), which make the reflexes less sensitive than on the feet.

Do I need many treatments to feel the benefits?

For Thai Massages it is not necessary as the treatment activates the body’s own healing potentials. It is therefore suggested to give some time before booking another massage so that this can take place.
For reflexology treatments, this depends on the pathology being treated. Someone may need only one session while someone else may need quite a few. An average usually ranged around 5 or 6.

Does a Thai Yoga Massage use oils?

Traditionally the massage will be fully clothed and no oils will be used. However, many practitioners incorporate them and I can do so if required.

Is Thai Yoga massage painful?

Not at all. The level of pressure and stretch that is used is adapted to each individual in each session, which means that I will not go further than your limit. However, it is different to certain “relaxing massages” in that you will rarely fall asleep during a treatment due to as there is a small level of activity required from the client, therefore keeping you awake.

What shall I wear for a treatment?

Anything you are comfortable in.
