How can Thai Massage help you?

Thai Massage is a traditional healing system following the teachings of yogi masters. This type of massage works to mobilize your body and address areas of tension or reduced range of motion. There is a combination of influences from India, China, and Southeast Asia, as well as from various traditions of medicine. With constant body contact between you and your therapist, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched, and rocked. During the massage, you are positioned in a variety of yoga-like positions combined with deep static and rhythmic pressures.

History of Thai Massage:

Thai Massage has an intriguing, fascinating, and vast history behind it, a lot of which has disappeared along with scriptures and texts across time. Yet, the founding of Thai Massage is attributed to Buddha’s physician, Shivago Komarapatr, thousands of years ago. Many documents boast about Shivago Komarapatr’s unique medical skills, involving herbal medications and his treatments, specifically those used on Buddha.

This knowledge and art of medicine spread, along with Buddhism. Thai Massage aspects and techniques were learned in monasteries and families throughout Thailand. Besides these brief facts, not a lot else is known about the origins of Thai Massage. Yet today, it’s been handed down through many generations and various times and eras. Registered massage therapists must now undergo formal training in order to offer and perform Thai Massage in Canada. In turn, it’s become a therapeutic go-to when it comes to releasing tension and relieving pain.

What to expect:

If you have issues of general tension or muscle aches and pains, a Thai Massage is the right service for you.

Your Thai Massage appointment may range from 90 minutes to 2 hours including the assessment time. Your treatment will begin with a short one-on-one assessment. This is your opportunity to point out what areas you’d like to work on during your time, as well as identify any special requests or concerns you may have. During your assessment, expect to answer questions regarding your health history including injuries and surgeries, leisure activities, work routines, areas of concern, and pain levels. These questions help the massage therapist align their treatment plan with your specific goals.

Your therapist will utilize: Light, Medium to Deep Pressure Massage Techniques, Acupressure, Stretching, Twisting and Joint Manipulations. The full Thai massage session follows a rhythm of pressing and stretching of the entire body. This is why it can typically take longer than a standard therapeutic massage. The therapist does not use lotions or oils. Further, the treatment takes place on a firm mat on the floor. You will remain clothed for your entire treatment. As such, please wear items that you can move comfortably in.

Make sure to communicate with your therapist throughout your massage. If you are uncomfortable in any way, do not hesitate to let your therapist know.

Other things you should know:

Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing.
