Thai Massage Therapy is an old system of healing which has evolved over years from Yoga and Ayurvedic medicines. It has its roots in the ancient meditation and acupressure healing which includes rhythmic massage and tender touch healing. Thai massage is different from other kinds of massage in that no oil is applied during the massage

Thai massage has a very unique technique when compared to other forms of massage. There is less of kneading and more of pulling and prodding and pressing. Thai massage starts at the feet and progresses up the body to the head. The massage relaxes all the major joints starting with the ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, wrists, and spine. Even the neck is relaxed and the spine stretched to improve blood circulation. The joints are concentrated upon and by relaxing the joints, the body itself is relaxed.

The benefits of a Thai massage include complete body relaxation, detoxification, and improved circulation. It is especially beneficial in relieving stress and anxiety and for those who have problems with their joints or do not have good posture. Thai Massage therapy  helps in providing relief from anxiety and tension and provides freshness to the mind and the body. It helps in increasing the vigor and vitality and providing new zeal to the body.
