Thai massage is best described as a combination of influences from Indian, Chinese and Southeast Asian cultural spheres and traditions of medicines and although there are many variations to the practice it is still very much based on yoga-like stretching and deep pressure massage.
Thai massage can be done solo or in a group of clients. It is the perfect way to relieve the stresses and strains that can build up in the body. The massage generally follows the Sen lines which are recognised as the 10 energy lines on the body.
Involving rhythmic pressing and stretching of the body, a full Thai massage in most massage clinics normally lasts around one and a half hours, sometimes more. The benefits of this type of massage are considered to be extremely wide as it not only relaxes the body it also relaxes the mind of the recipient.
