Thai Massage at About Balance Brighton

With its roots in Ayurveda and Buddhism, Thai massage was originally developed as a medical practice to prepare the body for the prevention of sickness and disease. It is still used very widely in Thai medicine today.

Thai massage is a very therapeutic form of deep tissue massage that’s given over the clothes on a futon-style floor mattress. By applying a combination of acupressure and manipulative yoga-style adjustments, this ancient healing art helps to remove emotional and physical blockages, open the joints, increase flexibility, release tension and encourage a profound state of relaxation, bringing the body back into balance.

Benefits of Thai Massage  

The aim of Thai massage is to encourage the body’s natural ability to heal itself, through the sensitive touch and nurturing energy of the therapist. During a treatment your therapist will work methodically, following the body’s natural energy lines, or sen sib (ten channels), whilst cultivating an intention of metta (loving kindness). In this way, any stagnant energy or emotional blockages are released, allowing energy to flow freely again throughout the body.

Regular Thai massage can help relieve the symptoms of many physical and psychological conditions, such as headaches, neck stiffness, shoulder tension, back pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia, menstrual cramps, high blood pressure and stress.

What to Expect

A typical Thai massage takes one and a half hours and is given fully clothed on a futon-style mattress on the floor. No oils are used, apart from a tiny amount on the face, with permission.

It’s best to wear comfortable clothes you can move in. You shouldn’t eat for at least 1-2 hours before your massage and it’s important to drink lots of water afterwards.

This is a deeply healing form of energy and bodywork, which will leave you feeling relaxed but energised, with an increased sense of overall wellbeing.

Relax… Breathe… Release…
