NEW to INTENSITY!
Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage. Thai massage is also called Thai yoga massage, because the therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches. Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work.
Muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure are also used during treatment. People describe Thai massage as both relaxing and energizing.
Thai Yoga Massage combines energy balancing, acupressure, rhythmic soft tissue compression, myofascial stretching, and joint mobilizations. It is a unique massage experience that leaves you feeling relaxed and revitalized. You are treated on a soft mat on the floor and passively stretched in yoga-like poses. Please wear comfortable clothing.
