Pressure points on the body, this massage relieves tension, pain, strain, stress, headache, backache, stiff neck, etcetera. Thai massage promotes healing, mental relaxation and improves blood circulation. The essence of this kind of massage is very different from what is generally associated with the word 'massage'.

Thai massage is rather a working of the pressure points, energy lines, and basic body forces which together produce a highly therapeutic effect on your body. This kind of massage is performed on a mat (directly on the floor), rather than on a raised table. This allows many movements and procedures that are not practical or effective in table work, and even sometimes impossible on a table. Specifically, mat work allows maximum effective use of the practitioner's balanced body weight, rather than mere muscular force used in other types of massage.
