What are the benefits of Thai Massage?
It works to systematically release tension and tightness from muscles that may have been held for a long time, bringing more mobility to joints and a greater sense of ease into the whole body.
Grounded in ancient Thai Medicine and Buddhism, the aim of Thai Massage is to release areas in the body that have become bound up or blocked creating greater feeling of relaxation and comfort.
