Overview of thai massage
Traditional Thai massage uses mainly acupressure and muscle stretching to free the body of blocked energy and achieve natural harmony and balance. During the treatment you will be fully clothed and lay on a mat on the floor. Your therapist will use their hands, feet, elbows, forearms and knees to manipulate and relax your body.

What to expect
This form of massage involves you going through yoga-like movements with the assistance of your massage therapist. Meanwhile the massage therapist applies direct or rhythmic pressure on the muscles. With the traditional Thai massage, you will lie down on a padded mat on the floor while wearing loose clothing.
