What is Thai massage
Thai massage (also known as yoga massage) – is an ancient system of healing, which includes a variety of ways to influence the muscle tissue and the body as a whole, namely, deep pressing, stretching, opening the joints, exercises resembling asanas (positions) of yoga, acupressure and impact on the flow of energy of the human body as a whole.
Health-improving systems of the East (alternative medicine) are based on the idea that an energy imbalance, or violation of circulation of energy through the channels in the human body is the main cause of any mental or physical disease or ailments.
The energy of the human body in every culture has different names, such as the life-giving energy “prana” in the Indian Ayurverde, “Qi” – in Chinese medicine. Thai healers believe that energy circulates through the energy channels “Sen”. The concepts are different, but the essence remains the same. Thai massage can improve health by activating the circulation of energy and eliminating the obstacles in its way in the channels. This is done by the action (pressing) on the critical points of energy channels, deep study of muscle tissue and the activation of the muscles, that are almost never used in everyday life.
There are some sub varieties of Thai massage, separate procedures, such as foot massage, facial massage, anti-stress massage.

How Thai massage is performed
During a session of Thai massage, which lasts from 30 minutes to 2-3 hours, the client is wearing loose light clothing and lies on a special mat. Instead of usual massage strokes, kneading, tapping and mechanical impact masseur is using stretching, twisting and pressure – which is why Thai massage is also known as “yoga massage” or passive yoga. Massaging (squeezing) is performed with palms, fingers, elbows, knees and feet – this technique allows to work out all parts of the body and reach the most hidden and unused muscles.
