Traditional Thai massage

Invigorating yoga-based massage

 

Traditional Thai Massage (TTM) is a unique and intense form of therapeutic massage, where both the practitioner and client engage in an interactive form of yoga together.

It is a dynamic form of medicine and energetic bodywork, which stimulates the circulation of blood, the drainage of lymph, the flow of Qi energy, the activity of the nervous system, overall joint and ligament mobility, physical flexibility and strength, organ function, body immunity, and the structure and health of tissue, such as fascia.

Various sequences of yoga positions, dynamic stretching, meridian massage and acupressure points are employed in the treatment of different kinds of hip, pelvis, knee, foot, shoulder, neck and back complaints. Range of motion is tested, whole body movement is engaged and release and wellbeing are typical after effects.

The difference between European massage techniques and Traditional Thai Massage is that the client is an active participant, rather than a passive recipient. They are involved in the massage as much as the practitioner. This makes the process an intimate and engaging one.

When the client feels comfortable with the presence, mindfulness, skill and expertise of the practitioner, then this trust assists and plays a role in the mutual goal of recovery.

Traditional Thai Massage in its current form has been in use for about 100 years; however, Thai medicine’s concepts rooted in Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine mean that many of the principles behind TTM are much older. Despite drawing inspiration from other lands, Traditional Thai Massage has been adapted and systematised according to the unique medical knowledge of the Thai people.
