Deep Tissue and Sports Massage
Deep Tissue and Sports Massage is a massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back pain, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders. The movement is slower than Classic Swedish Massage and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).
Nuad Bo Rarn (Thai yoga) massage
Traditional Thai Yoga Massage is a preventive and therapeutic full body massage given on a mat on the floor.
The massage therapy is based on manipulation of the joints, acupressure along the muscles and stretching of the muscles, with enormous health benefits. Thai yoga massage is different than other forms of massage, because both masseur and client are constantly moving. This is why not only the client but also the masseur becomes more flexible and is in meditation during the treatment.
In Thailand this is used for centuries in hospitals to shorten the waiting lists. Moreover this massage is part of the daily routine in Thailand with enormous health results.
There is also a variation of this massage – Thai table massage – given on the massage table.
