Thai massage is one of the ancient healing arts of traditional Thai medicine and has been in a process of constant evolution for over 1,000 years. It shows both Chinese and Indian influences.
The treatment combines the application of pressure using hands, forearms, elbows feet and knees, with manipulation and full body stretching. Energy pathways are cleared, muscles are elongated, joints are freed, internal organs and all the body’s systems are stimulated resulting in a balanced state. This treatment is performed fully clothed on a mat.
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
A number of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy techniques are used specific to the individual.
Each Myofascial Release treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables fascial restrictions to be accurately detected. The appropriate amount of sustained pressure can then be applied to facilitate the release of the fascia.
