Thai Traditional massage is a combination of acupressure, yoga, and Zen shiatsu. It consists of rhythmic and slow compressions and stretches along the body's energy lines or 'sen' as it is known as in Thailand. There are over 70,000 ‘sen’ in the body, and Traditional Thai Massage concentrates on application of pressure along the 10 most important of these 'sen'. The therapists use their hand, palms, thumbs, elbows, and feet in an effort to manipulate the release of tension from within the body. Therapists also maneuver the body into yoga-like positions and gently rock and stretch the body to open the joints and facilitate limbering. The Deep Tissue massage work involved stimulates the lymph nodes to boost the immune system, eliminate toxins, clear blockages, transport nutrients to cells and increases the body’s metabolism.
