Thai Massage Bodywork

Thai Massage bodywork will be available in one-hour and 1.5-hour sessions at Breathe Yoga & Wellness by appointment this Fall. Watch a video below on Thai Massage and read on about what to expect during this wonderful, relaxing treatment.

What to expect:

The first thing you may notice about Thai Massage versus a traditional massage is that you’ll be dressed in your own loose-fitting or stretchy clothing so that you can move with ease. Yoga pants or shorts, athletic wear, even lounge clothing, are all perfect for a Thai Massage treatment.

In a Thai Massage session, you’ll lie on a padded mat on the floor while the therapist uses hands, forearms, knees, elbows and feet to move your joints through their ranges of motion, stretches your muscles and applies pressure directly to pressure points. This massage is part of the traditional medical system of Thailand, and is believed to be more than 2,000 years old. You may also hear the massage referred to as Thai Yoga, or by its traditional Thai name: Nuad Bo-Rarn.

The massage typically starts with gentle rocking and rhythmic compression to prepare your body for the yoga-like stretches and deeper pressure. Although this massage has a reputation for being pretty intense, the therapist will work at a level that's comfortable for you, working within your own range of motion. This is true even for people that consider themselves very inflexible.

Benefits:

There are several benefits of Thai Massage, including the reduction of muscle tension, added mobility and enhanced range of movement of the joints, and a reduction in joint pain. This treatment also improves circulation of blood to the joints and muscles, and increases healthy flow of energy through your body. Thai massage can support the treatment of sciatica, headaches, and neck and back pain. It promotes relaxation, and enhances an overall sense of well being. 

Thai massage is most effective for people with relatively good health, and is not recommended for people with serious circulatory problems, recent surgery or injury, or are in active recovery from many medically treated conditions.
