CALL US ON
What to expect
This is a short, initial Q&A session, during which your therapist will establish your requirements based upon existing medical conditions, previous experience of massage, etc.
This is performed in a spacious, ventilated, private consultation room. We use lightly scented oils and soft, calming oriental music to help you relax and enjoy your treatment. Depending upon the treatment you will be given a gown or towel to wear, and time alone to change at the start and end. Our client shower room is available at any time should you wish to use it.
The objectives of Thai massage
Our most popular treatment is Thai massage, which dates from over 2500 years ago. It is a combination of influences from Thai and Chinese medicine, and is steeped in Indian and Southeast Asian culture.
Thai massage treats the whole person, holistically. Holistic medicine is a form of healing that considers the whole person – body, mind, spirit, and emotions – in the quest for optimal health and wellness. According to the holistic medicine philosophy, one can achieve optimal health, the primary goal of holistic medicine practice, by gaining proper balance in life. Holistic medicine practitioners believe that the whole person is made up of interdependent parts and if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected. In this way, if people have imbalances (physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives, it can negatively affect their overall health. Homeostasis, maintaining the body at optimum levels, is part of this.
