Thai Massage is an interactive manipulation of the body using passive stretching
and gentle pressure along energy lines. These movements help to:
Therapeutic massage can be used to promote
general well-being and enhance self-esteem,
while boosting the circulatory and immune
systems to benefit blood pressure, circulation,
muscle tone, digestion, and skin tone. It has
been incorporated into many health systems,
and different massage techniques have been
developed and integrated into various
complementary therapies.

As an art it must be about as old as man himself because to hold or rub an injured part
is an instinctive reaction to pain or discomfort
Massage has evolved from a combination of Eastern and Western traditions. By far the
greatest advancement of therapeutic massage recorded in history was by a Swedish
physiologist named Per Henrik Ling (1776-1839), who created a scientific system of
massage movements and techniques known as Swedish Massage. This consists of five
basic strokes: effleurage (stroking), petrissage (kneading), friction, tapotement
(percussion), and vibration, though all of these strokes are not used on every part of
the body.
Most massage therapists utilise Swedish Massage as the foundation for a treatment and
blend in various techniques, depending upon training and experience,  to address the
specific needs of the client. In general, the manipulation of the body’s soft tissue (i.e.
the skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) using the hands is a gentle, flowing
massage technique that uses varying degrees of pressure and stretching movements. It
is most commonly used for relaxation and improving well-being.
Environment is important to the massage experience. The room should be warm and
peaceful. If the desired experience is to be relaxing then having low-level lighting, soft
music and a pleasing aroma all add to the effect.
Massage improves circulation, which increases blood flow, bringing fresh oxygen to
body tissues. This can assist the elimination of waste products, speed healing after
injury, and enhance recovery from disease.

Swedish massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues
of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It increases circulation without
increasing heart load. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and
pliable. Swedish Massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system and soothes the
nerves themselves at the same time. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and
is suggested in a regular program for stress management. It also has many specific
medical uses.

in comfortable loose clothing.
Thai Massage uses two primary procedures: applying gentle pressure with the hands and
feet, and a wide variety of passive stretching movements

This massage, applied in a quietly meditative atmosphere, space is
created in the musculoskeletal structure, the body begins to open and
regain flexibility and ease of movement, while the mind gently returns to
calm alertness. Tension and toxic material is released from the joints,
muscles, and connective tissue. The energy body, as well as the internal
organs, are stimulated by pressure on peripheral reflex points.
It appeals to people, and is effective, because it treats the client with respect while
encouraging them to let go of physical and emotional restrictions and to go beyond
their present limitations.
This ancient therapy is beneficial for young or old, active or inactive, healthy or not
so healthy. While each person will respond to this work in terms of their own
experience and present state of health, it is well to remember that Thai Massage
has been used for countless generations to treat degenerative conditions and
promote wellness.
