Thai Massage Therapy is an ancient form of massage thought to have been developed by Buddhist monks in Thailand a few centuries ago. It uses reflexology, passive stretching and gentle pressure along the body’s energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension, and balance the body’s energy systems.
Thai massage is done fully clothed. You will lie on a mat and receive pressure on your body while allowing yourself to be deeply stretched into various positions.
The work may feel unusual and unexpected — and you have to feel comfortable enough with bodywork to relax. The benefits of this particular treatment are long-lasting and powerful on a physical, mental, emotional, energetic and spiritual level.
Prenatal Thai Massage Therapy
Pregnancy is a very special time in any woman’s life. Childbirth forever alters the mother’s being. This is why pregnancy is a good time to start making more positive lifestyle changes. It’s an optimal time to strengthen the bond between mother and partner, but also influence the child in the womb and lay the foundation for the child’s future. This style of massage is very safe during pregnancy. Mom will lay elevated on her back (over comfortable pillows and blankets) and on her side as she receives passive deep stretches and explores therapeutic manipulations of the energy lines, which will help to balance hormones and leave her feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
Stress has a negative impact on the mother-to-be and the childbearing experience. It can increase the chances of miscarriage or premature birth, prolong or complicate labor, influence postpartum complications and the newly-born.
Prenatal Thai Massage is a great way to maintain balance during pregnancy, adjust to all the changes happening in her body, and provide stress relief.
