This massage was established in India more than 2500 years ago, and together with the knowledge of the body according to Chinese doctrine and medicine, it was intermed in Thailand. It is a deep massage. The theoretical basis for this style of work with the body is the existence of an "energetic body", which includes the energy pathways that passes through the body. Pressure is exerted on specific points, stretching the body with yoga stretching to release blockages, release and restore the energy flow in the body. Massage oil or emulsion is not used for this massage. It can only be used with balm for really problematic parts of soft tissue. The task is to warm or cool the part (or both).
Traditional Thai Massage provides the basis for all other Thai massages. Every masseuse that can handle the technique of this massage can theoretically be said to be able to apply other types of Thai massages that are based on this tradition.

So how-to massage?
It is not kneading soft tissue after fibers (muscles, etc.) as it is with Thai oil massage, but pressure is exerted on this soft tissue. It is therefore a mixture of acupresure, energy work and gentle yoga stretching (see History of Thai massage). The client or our member in this procedure is wearing the comfortable clothes it receives from us. It is on the floor with a hard to soft mattress or a massage bed. In the more above the level of the heated environment a masseuse can also apply instead of clothing towels, through which he develops massage pressures exactly as well as through clothes. For the more shy, the clothes can be an advantage and, as a whole, more practical, due to the manipulation of massaged, changes in positions (on the abdomen, back, sitting).
Relaxes stiff joints, stretches muscles, increases range of motion and reduces psychological stress. It is well suited for people with a larger amount of muscle or fatty tissue, thanks to the possibility of variable pressure on the body, according to the technique or "school". Fits all those who withstand more pressure on the body.
It does not cope with muscle stress as skillfully as Thai oil massage, which is also more suited for people who are hypersensitive to pain or are also "beginners" to Thai massages. The problematic parts may hurt, but it will be fixed over time.
It is therefore more about regenerative massage. For the relaxation itself is not very suitable, because there is more manipulation with the body massaged. Someone perceits such a massage as more painful, but these are just "problematic" places that have to undergo a massage to regenerate itself. Whoever tried this massage and called it a breakup, maybe he felt as if something was wrong with him. After all, one of us sometimes fails to admit much and prefers this Thai massage to be "breakable."
To ensure the best flow of energy flow in the body and Thai conception of the view of Thai masseurs on the body as a whole, this massage is carried out from the "heel to the head".
