Thai Hand Massage is nice introduction to this unique blend of rhythmic Massage, assisted progressive stretching, acupressure style Massage during which the Client is invited to “go within” themselves, to let go of doing, to be as much as a rag doll as they can be this all allows for a deeper more profound Massage!
By just focusing on the hands Clients will be able to get a feel for how a full body Thai Massage could feel.
Clients can receive the Thai Hand Massage treatment while lying on the Massage couch remaining full clothed. In the cooler months there is a heated couch and blankets so you will feel cocooned and looked after. Once your hands have been cleansed, each hand will be Massaged using strokes, thumb work and mobilisation and stretching exercises; this can be with or without Massage cream / oil.
There is the space for quiet inner reflection as the Massage takes place either in silence or with gentle music ; it may feel like a “meditation in motion”.
It is believed that blocks in the bodies’ energy lines attribute to dis-ease and discomfort hence the joint mobilisation exercises, stretching of the muscles, stimulating energy points will cumulatively encourage the free flow of “sen” and encourage waste materials and toxins to flush from the body.
Thai Massage is about bringing the body and mind into a state of harmony and ease. Clients notice different things maybe it’s an increase in flexibility/ mobility with the hip, shoulder rotations, perhaps they feel lighter as the blood and lymph flow have been stimulated, maybe pain may have been released.
Contrary to what you may have heard Thai Massage is an ideal style for anyone who is keen to remain flexible, to learn how to become able to let go of “being in control”, to bring the mind and body to a sense of “equilibrium”; natural body balance. It can sooth and restore, create harmony and transform!
