09 Dec Thai Massage – A Great Christmas Gift
A Thai Massage is an ideal gift for anyone who has had a busy year and the aches and pains that come from long hours and less sleep. Thai massage is a different type of massage, usually performed on a mat on the floor. This allows the therapist to use her body weight, as leverage and balance, to give you the full benefit of a deep stretch as well as gentle pressure, compression and passive manipulation.
The client is advised to wear loose, comfortable clothing or clothing that stretches. Your therapist will use gentle stretching and compression methods to stimulate and relax tense muscles, gently relaxing and softening the fascia, which in turn will relax the muscles. Thai Massage is a movement of two bodies working hand in hand to stretch and release the muscles that are knotted and tense, increasing your flexibility and helping to restore your movement.
Thai massage is an aide to deep relaxation and more flexibility as well as relieving stress and increasing your vitality and well-being. This type of massage incorporates the whole body and is suitable for young or elderly people. Here are a few more benefits:

- deeper rest and relaxation
This treatment is comprehensive and addresses the whole body. This ancient art of massage can address some of the ills of present day living. Treat yourself to this unusual massage for an overall stretch and relaxation.
