About Thai Massage
Types of Massage
Traditional Thai Massage is a 2500-year-old technique for relaxing the body and calming the mind. It can help to relieve many physical problems such as back pain, tense shoulders and neck, stiffness, poor posture, indigestion and sciatica as well as psychologically related stress and tiredness.
Thai massage developed essentially from the Indian Ayurvedic and Yogic traditions, and there are hundreds of techniques which may be used but most of them involve palming (using the palms to smoothly press or roll the flesh), thumbing (using thumbs to stimulate the body's energy lines or 'sen'), pressure on specific points, along with gentle stretching and manipulation of the body.
Authentic Thai Massage

The technique involves putting gentle but firm pressure on the body with the palms and thumbs, as well as relaxing stretching of the limbs and back. In this way it works effectively on skin, muscle, the organs and the skeletal structure. Blood and lymph circulation is increased and waste substances are removed from tissues.

About Swedish Massage
What is a Swedish Massage?
is the "classic" massage that's most well-known in the western world. Swedish massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes in the same direction as the heart's blood flow. Classic Swedish massage is specifically designed to relax muscles - using softer strokes on bony and delicate areas, and applying harder pressure where there is thicker muscle coverage.
About Medical Massage
What is Medical massage??
is performed to address a specific medical condition. Medical massage may be used as part of a physical therapy program to build strength and increase flexibility, and it can also be used to treat sports injuries, muscle pains, edema, muscle cramps, migraines, pregnancy-related aches and pains, and a wide variety of other physical problems.
What is Reflexology Therapy?
is not strictly a massage, but a holistic technique based on the theory that areas of the hands and feet match organs in the body. Unlike massage (where the muscles are manipulated) during reflexology pressure is applied to areas of the feet (especially) to stimulate reflexes in other parts of the body which can help or even prevent many health problems in a natural way.
