What is Thai massage?

Well, for one thing,it’s not “massage” as we know it in the West. In fact, it is unfortunate that the term “Thai massage” has become so popular because that second word, massage, is misleading and inaccurate.Massage tables and oils aren’t used,there is no rubbing on the skin or kneading of the muscles, and the reciever remains clothed. The essence of Thai massage it is a balanced blend of physical,energetic and spiritual healing techniques and concepts. It is a skilful combination of applying both broad and targeted accupressure, finding and dissolving blockages, stimulating energy lines (sen), opening and toning the body with yoga-like stretches, and last but not least, allowing and encouraging the receiver to engage in a process of self healing, deep relaxation, and renewal.
