Thai Massage is over 1,000 years old, one of the most ancient of the healing arts, it’s roots go back to Indian Ayuvedic and Yogic influences, with a strong emphasis on Chinese Traditional Medicine.
The treatment begins by clearing the Sen lines, (meridians in Chinese Medicine), using thumb and palm pressure. This can release blockages and stagnation, and allow the flow of vital energy, Qi, through the body.
You will then be guided through progressive stretches and yoga techniques. The stretches will be within your movement range, over time the muscles will lengthen, and the stretches and postures will greatly increase.
The techniques of Thai Massage are very effective in reducing pain and stiffness in the muscles and joints, whilst increasing flexibility and mobility. It can be incredibly energising, or deeply calming, depending on what you need at that time.
The many benefits of Thai Massage stretches and mobilisations can be combined within a table treatment. Ruth has developed her practice into a flowing treatment, using techniques from her many disciplines. Ensuring an individual treatment to address issues during your session.
