Traditional Thai Massage
Thai massage is a type of massage that involves stretching and deep massage. This form of bodywork is usually performed on a padded mat on the floor. No oils are used in Thai massage.
While getting a Thai massage, you will need to wear loose, comfortable clothing that allows for easy movement. During your massage you may be positioned in a variety of yoga-like positions, but deep static and rhythmic pressures form the core of Thai massage. Duration of this type of massage is typically between 60 minutes to two hours long.
Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than the more classic forms of massage. Thailand is proud of its name, “the Land of Smiles”. You can expect to feel happy and soothed after your massage. You may well experience an unusual sensation of being both calm and energized, and feel lighter, taller and even “ironed out”.
