Thai Massage

massageflorida_thaiThai massage was originated in India and it is based on ayurveda and yoga. In Thailand it is known as "nuat phaen boran" literally, the ancient-manner massage.

Growing in popularity in the U.S and Europe, the technique combines massage with yoga-like positions during the course of the session.

The postures can be quite acrobatic, with the therapist sometimes suspending the client in mid-air with his legs and arms, as well as, walking on the back. This way the client is stretched into different postures by the therapist, offering a much more effective stretch than he could accomplish alone.

This technique helps increase flexibility and muscle tone, as well as promotes balance and peace within the body.

This form of bodywork is usually performed on the floor, and the client wears comfortable clothes that allow for movement. No oils are used during the session.
