Thai Massage originated in Thailand over 2,500 years ago and is still practiced in Thailand and around the world today. Also known as Yoga Massage, this massage technique treats the energy lines of the body through stretches and acupressure points.

What to Expect:
Unlike Swedish massage, Thai massage is performed with the client fully dressed in loose and comfortable clothing, and no oil or creams are used during the massage. The therapist will apply slow rhythmic pressure techniques along with passive stretches and will sit, kneel and stand next to the client throughout the session. Most clients feel rejuvenated and energized after a great Thai Massage.
