Frequently Asked Questions about Thai Massage:

Q: What should I expect when I get a Thai Massage?

A: At Body and Soul Thai Massage, we match our techniques to accommodate the client's limits. Thai Massage is not painful. The therapist's thumbs, hands, elbows, knees and feet are used with sensitivity to stretch the body and relieve tension. People have described the experience as "having yoga done for you". It is relaxing and energizing at the same time. Thai Massage is done on a comfortable mat, the client is fully clothed and no oils are used.

Q: What is the theory behind Thai Massage?

A: The idea is that our energy needs to flow freely in order for the body to be balanced and healthy. There are points in the body that help to stimulate that flow of energy. Gentle acupressure-like movements along with muscle compression and stretching can help to free up blocked or stagnant energy. Free flowing energy brings about a feeling of general wellbeing and facilitates the body's own natural healing.

Thai Massage Testimonial:

"I felt dizzy, confused and tired most of the time. Work deadlines and commitments consumed me. As I pushed through each day using ibuprofen by day and a bit of wine at night, the symptoms worsened. My doctor suggested I go on several medications to relieve the symptoms. I decided to do the only thing I knew -- go for a massage. The massage therapist who came to greet me was not your conventional therapist. She was from Thailand. She brought me back to her room and worked on me for an hour. I instantly felt better. I returned the next week and this little wonder from Thailand suggested I receive a Thai massage. When she began working on me I felt a wave of peace. After the session, I felt clear and confident. After several treatments, my symptoms lessoned allowing me to get to the core of the problem without the use of medicine, teaching me the importance of nurturing myself through food and bodywork. My heart is now more open and able to experience love and light."
