This therapeutic massage has been used for more than 2,500 years in its' classical version. Dating back to the 5th/6th century BC, it's probably the oldest form of therapy still used to this day in original form. It's a combination of acupressure, ayurveda and passive yoga -as well as ancient medical knowledge.
It is sometimes referred to as passive yoga - or yoga for the lazy. It is a deep massage, using acupressure without any oil - received while laying on a mattress in light clothes or underwear and covered with a thin blanket. The masseur applies rhythmic and sometimes quite firm pressure, using various parts of his body: hands, thumbs, forearms, elbows, knees and feet.
Individually tailored intensity
Thai massage can sometimes be very intense, and the patient's sensations are equally strong then. The pace, depth and intensity of pressure depends on the patient's condition, age, flexibility, fortitude and individual predisposition. However, it's always extremely effective in stretching the body, strengthening muscles, improving flexibility, slimming the body while improving its' firmness and reducing cellulite.
Those who have experienced a Thai massage quickly grow to accept and appreciate this method. This is due to its' great effectiveness in enhancing musculoskeletal organs, reduction or elimination of stiffness, and general stimulation of the body.
