Short Course Detail
Traditional Thai Massage is thought to have been practiced for over 2000 years in Thailand, with therapists using their hands, knees and feet during treatments. The theory behind traditional Thai massage is based on traditional Thai medicine and the premise that the human body contains 10 energy lines (sen), which extend the full length of the body.
Thai massage style combines stretching and deep sustained pressure using palms, knees and elbows. It is performed fully clothed on a firm mat on the ground. It’s fun and interesting for the therapist to perform and also highly effective for the person receiving the treatment.
