Thai massage is unique in style, yet offers the same therapeutic benefits of traditional massage therapy. At the heart of this modality is metta, a compassionate intent cultivated by the therapist that enhances the benefit of this treatment.
The passive yoga-like stretches, in which the therapist guides the client's body into the movemenet, facilitate deep relaxation and help improve flexibility.The dynamic pairing of these stretches and muscle compressions, in which the therapist uses her palms, thumbs, elbows, or feet, effectively reduces muscle tension and encourages the body's energy to flow in a balanced state.
