THE THAI MASSAGE… WHAT EXACTLY IS IT?

The Thai massage is an energetic treatment, born 2500 years ago when Buddhist doctors arrived in India. Influenced by the Ayurveda, a Chinese and Buddhist traditional medicine, this massage is also inspired by some Yoga postures. The massages, pressures and taps are performed on precise spots along the energetic lines also called meridians. Stretches are performed during the massage to favor the elimination of toxins, the liberation of energetic blockings and muscular tensions, giving the body suppleness and peps, all the while allowing a relaxation as well as a mental and physical appeasement.

Performed since over 2500 years and taught by Buddhist monks who master the arts of healing, this massage relaxes both body and mind.
