ABOUT THAI MASSAGE, which combines the most beautiful forms of classic Thai massage with holistic methods from different parts of the world. The meaning of the massage is “listening with your hands”, that is, soft and deep entering the tissues using your body weight with elements of passive stretching. It is a job especially aimed at opening and improving the flexibility of the body, reducing tension and restoring full mobility of the joints. It is also work on energy lines with acupressure points. The massage takes place on a mat in loose, comfortable clothes that do not restrict movement. The person massaged while lying down is arranged in positions derived from yoga – asana (hence the name Thai massage “yoga for the lazy”). Thai massage enables deep relaxation, brings mental relief and greater awareness of feelings. The aim of the massage, by moving the whole body, is to restore the natural balance and awaken the processes of self-regeneration.
