Thai massage


Thai massage is an ancient massage method with roots in India. The patient will achieve relaxation through acupressure and stretching of limbs.

The patient lies on the floor on a matress while the therapist sits or stands during the session. The patient is clad in thin materials and the massage is "dry", meaning no oils are being used.

Thai massage has sometimes been called "yoga for the lazy", which probably refers to the applied stretching. Thai massage also requires some patient participation.

A well known centre educating Thai therapists is Wat Po in Bangkok.
