Thai massage is a unique form of Bodywork with origins dating back about 2500 years. Ancient medical texts were carved in stone in attempts to preserve the tradition of Thai massage; these stone inscriptions still sit within the walls of the Wat Pho temple in Bangkok.

This ancient healing art promotes improved flexibility and energy flow. Through deep muscle stretching, joint release and emphasis on breath, Thai massage offers many of the same benefits as yoga. The main difference is that I provide assistance using my hands, feet, knees and elbows to guide you through a vast array of passive stretching movements. I also incorporate gentle pressure along energy lines. The effect is uniquely relaxing as well as energizing and I have found it to be unsurpassed in releasing restrictions especially in the shoulders and hips. Many of my clients like to use Thai massage regularly in a pre-competition situation as they are certain it gives them the EDGE, enhancing their balance and freedom of movement. But the beauty of this therapy is that it is beneficial for everyone, young or old, active or inactive, healthy or not so healthy.

Unlike most traditional massage, a typical Thai session is performed on a supportive mat and the client wears loose-fitting or stretchable type clothing and no creams or oils are required.
