Thai Massage in Denver

Thai Massage 2018

Thai massage is a form of body work that is done on the floor, on a mat, fully clothed and involves primarily deep stretching. Props such as pillows blankets add extra comfort to support the body and provide relaxation. No oils are used in this service. We recommend wearing something comfortable and flexible like shorts, spandex, or yoga pants.

Thai massage combines passive, yoga-like stretching with rhythmic compressions and massage to relax the whole body on a deeper level.  It is a highly unique and interactive style of massage, often called the “lazy man’s yoga.” The modality is an ancient form of massage with roots similar to yoga and Ayruvedic medicine.

Thai massage is very therapeutic for opening and transforming the body, mind and spirit into a place of relaxation and peace.

Traditional Massage vs. Thai Massage

Thai yoga massage differs from many massage modalities in that it works the spaces between bones and tendons, the nervous system and the connective tissue. Instead of relaxing, gliding and kneading motions of a traditional Swedish massage, a Thai therapist uses stretching, pulling, and rocking techniques, Thai massage relieves muscle tension and enhances flexibility and range of motion.

The therapist uses hands, knees, legs and feet to apply deep muscle compression to tender muscle fibers (knots); to enhance joint mobilization, and to apply acupressure.  Thai yoga massage also utilizes energy work to correct blockages, deficiencies, and imbalances in the flow of energy throughout the body to maximize health benefits.
