Traditional Thai Massage - Nuad Boran
Thai massage is an ancient healing art practiced on a floor mat, fully clothed with no oil where you are massaged on your back, your sides, stomach and in a sitting position. It incorporates basic movement, stretching and compression techniques while working the main energy lines (Sen) through the whole body. Orginally called Nuad Boran in Thailand which means ancient massage, it is also known as Traditional Thai massage and Thai Yoga massage. It is a deep tissue acupressure massage in which we work along the Sen Sib Lines (10 energy lines) in a systematic manner using thumbs, palms, elbows, feet and knees in a relaxing, rhythmic motion and apply gentle stretches using assisted yoga-like positions.
Disturbances in the flow of energy result in an insufficient supply of Prana. Working on these lines we can help release the blockages, stimulate the free flow of life energy, leaving you simultaneously vitalized, energized but still calm and balanced.
Some of the health benefits:
- lowers stress, anxiety
- boosts energy
- relieves headache, neck pain, lower back pain, sciatica
- treats carpal tunnel syndrome
- stimulates circulation
- improves range of motion
- improves athletic performance
- strengthens joints
- helps with concentration
After a Thai Massage your own self-healing powers are activated through the harmony created between the body, mind and spirit. One feels simultaneously vitalized, energized, calm and balanced.
