Traditional Thai Yoga Massage
Thai Massage incorporates an acupressure therapy that blends deep tissue massage, gentle stretches and the stimulation of acupressure points to instil relaxation. The gentle muscle compression of the massage movements helps to loosen joints, stretch muscles and stimulate circulation.
Deep Tissue Massage
For a stronger, more intense massage treatment, the therapist uses hands, elbows and feet to apply deep pressure to acupuncture points and targets specific areas of build-up. This massage helps to relieve deep-seated tension, resulting in a feeling of complete invigoration.
