What Is Thai Therapeutic Massage?
Thai Massage is therapeutic rather than relaxing. It targets problem areas and helps with taking away aches and pains, restoring mobility and improving general wellbeing.
Traditional Thai Massage is an ancient system of healing stretching back at least 2500 years. It combines Yoga, Ayurvedic medicine and Buddhist spiritual practice. This unique and complete system of therapy combines rhythmic massage, acupressure, gentle twisting, deep stretching and meditation.
Thai Massage is useful for relieving pain and injuries, but can also be used for enhancing physical performance, increasing mobility, and body maintenance. Athletes can benefit from a Thai Massage before a competition to ensure their body is tuned for maximum performance.
What Are The Main Benefits Of A Thai Massage?
Thai Massage has many benefits for pain relief and improving general wellbeing. Some of the main benefits of Thai Massage include:
Reducing lower back pain, including chronic pain
Improve range of motion by using assisted yoga poses
Reduces feelings of anxiety and promotes mental wellbeing
Reduces stress by reducing levels of cortisol, the "stress hormone", in the body using deep pressure massage techniques

What Is Tok Sen Massage?
Tok means to hammer or hit and sen refers to the pathways in the body. Tok Sen massage is an ancient northern Thai massage practice which uses a special wooden hammer, made from the bark of the tamarind tree, to relax muscles in a rhythmically tapping motion, known as ‘Tok Sen’.
Tok Sen massage therapy helps to alleviate physical aches and pains, energy blockages, improve circulation, and soothe nerve problems.
