Thai Massage on Table
Thai Massage is an ancient, healing massage technique of a history traced back to 2500 years ago. It combines acupressure, passive yoga-like stretches/postures, and Indian ayurvedic principles. The founder is said to be Shivago Komarpaj who was also the Buddha’s physician. However, the technique has influences from Indian, Chinese, and southeast Asian cultures. The therapists usually follow designated energy lines in the body, apply rhythmic compression and passive yoga style stretching/pulling, and rocking techniques. That’s why it is sometimes called the “lazy person’s yoga” or “Thai yoga massage”. It is more energizing than other forms of massage.
