Thai Oil or Swedish massage is one of the most commonly practiced and well-known techniques in massage therapy.
Thai Oil massage is a system of treatment designed to relax and energize the body by stimulating circulation.
There are many different types of hand movements used throughout this massage: a combination of long strokes, kneading, rolling, rubbing, gliding, vibration, percussive and tapping movements with the application of oil to reduce friction on the skin.
The main purpose of Thai Oil massage is to increase the flow of oxygen in the blood and release toxins from the muscles, stimulating the nervous system and reducing emotional and physical stress.
This type of therapy has many other benefits including relaxation, helping to keep ligaments and tendons supple, helping with dissolution of scar tissue adhesions and improving circulation, which may speed healing and reduce swelling from injury.
It will help combat stress in your everyday life, rejuvenate and nourish your system by improving body flexibility, reducing muscle tension and balancing the body’s energy system.
Thai Oil Massage can be relaxing or deep tissue, according to your preference. The massage takes place on a massage table.
Thai Massage is a unique massage therapy which combines acupressure and gentle yoga-based stretches. The therapist uses thumb, palm, elbow, knee and foot pressure along important energy lines whilst moving the body through sequences of stretches. It is a deeply relaxing experience, extremely effective in relaxing stiff joints, releasing muscular tension and congested toxins. This technique releases blockages, leads to increased vitality and well being, and restores the body’s own natural healing potential, health and harmony. It aids breathing and circulation and helps to improve flexibility and alignment, reduces stress, and improves posture.
This ancient therapy utilises pressure points on the feet to stimulate nerve reflexes. These points correspond to different organs within the body, which helps to improve the harmony of the body, inducing a feeling of relaxation and calm.
