Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work. Muscle compression, joint mobilization and acupressure are also used during treatment.

Indeed, it is an assisted yoga. It addresses common problem areas of the body and starts flexible but rhythmical and free-flowing positions that are within the client’s tolerable range of motions. It makes the client rediscover himself, in a way he/she hasn’t known before.

The stones revitalize our human condition; bringing back natures natural way of treating the body, pampering it the best way possible, beyond what is essentially comprehensible by the human mind.

Swedish massage uses a firm but gentle pressure to improve circulation, eases muscle pains and tension, improves flexibility and creates relaxation.

Swedish massage employs five different movements: such as long gliding strokes, kneading of individual muscles, friction, hacking or tapping vibration.

The therapist generally uses massage oil to facilitate long and smooth strokes over the body. Swedish massage is done with the person covered by a sheet, a technique called “draping”. One part of the body is uncovered and treated with the massage and will then be covered up before moving on to the next part of the body.

Swedish massage is the foundation for other types of Western massage, including sports, deep tissue and aromatherapy massages.
