A Look at the
Thai Massage Technique


Thai massage is is a type of massage that involves stretching and deep massage. Developed by Buddhist monks 2,500 years ago, Thai style uses gentle pressure along the body’s energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve tension in the muscles and joints, and balance the body’s energy systems.

The client wears loose comfortable clothes, and the session usually takes place on the floor, on a futon mat.

As the therapist pushes the client's body into various positions, it feels something like relaxed yoga, only the therapist is doing all of the work.
