Thai Massage incorporates elements of mindfulness, gentle rocking, deep stretching and rhythmic compression to create a singular healing experience. Thai Massage uses assisted yoga Asanas to open the joints and relieve the tension in surrounding muscles, which allows prana, chi or healing energy to move more freely through the body.
Thai massage allows the receiver to experience a deepening into the asana (yoga posture) through a deep and gentle asistance, opening the joints without the resistance created when using their own power. The use of gentle rocking, thumb pressure and rhythmic compression helps the body to be prepared for the stretches so that the person feels "invited" to receive the stretch and defence reactions are not triggered.

Thai Aroma oil massage is a combination of Thai and Western massage techniques. The procedure is basically identical to traditional Thai massage, but some techniques are not used because the body gets slippery. Oils used for the treatment are formulated according to the guests needs and mood. Different volatile oils have different impacts on the body, thus contributing to the treatment of physical and mental complaints (e.g. relaxing, purifying, detoxing, refreshing effect, it may relax the muscles, firming the skin and strengthening the nervous system).
It applies on various areas of the body to bring structural and electrical alignment. It is designed to bring balance to the body with its relaxing, mild application. It will also help to align and clear the energy centers of the body without using force or excessive pressure. Thai people have always used oils and balms to treat different problems and symptoms.
In Thai foot massage there are ten major energy lines we work with (although there are thought to be 72 000 through the whole body). By focusing on these ten energy, or Sen Lines, we work on Reflex / pressure points on the feet which correspond to various internal organs, through which life energy, prana, Chi or Ki flows.
It is believed that blockages within the flow will result in pain, illness or disease. By working along these lines with pressure and by stretching the lines, blocked energy can be released and functions balanced. Much like the practice of Acupuncture, Acupressure and Shiatsu.
