TRADITIONAL THAI MASSAGE
THAI YOGA MASSAGE
At Hawaii Thai Massage & Spa, we are proud practitioners of the ancient art of Thai Yoga massage, an honored practice originated over 2,500 years ago in the temples of Thailand.
Though rooted in the healing practices of Ancient India, Thai Yoga Massage is also unique to the Thailand. Founded by Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, renowned physician to Lord Buddha himself, this holistic healing practice continues today in spas like our own.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Unlike traditional European massages, Thai Yoga Massages are performed on a mat on the floor and fully clothed. The massage therapist gently guides the client through specific positions and movements to release tensions and energies. Through their support and pressure along the bodies “Sen” or energy lines and points, the massage therapist eases the client’s muscles pains and tension, and boosts their immune system and energy levels.
Still a common practice throughout Thailand today, many families spend their evenings providing this massage for one another and reaping its physical, spiritual and mental benefits. The rewards of Thai Yoga massage include, but aren’t limited to:
A boost in the immune system
