Thai Massage is a relaxing and healing therapy, which is based on rhythmic stretches, acupressure and gentle rocking. The massage covers the whole body, from feet to head. Its work is to move the prana or energy, to eliminate unwanted toxins, releasing stress. It offers to the recipient, a peaceful sensation in body and mind. The length of a session varies between 90 minutes to 2 hours. The massage is given with comfortable clothing (preferably cotton) and over a mat on the floor. The benefits of this therapy last longer than a regular massage. Some include, gain more flexibility, align the spine, circulation improvement, and release of back pain, joint alignments, better sleep, and many others. The morning after the recipient will feel more energy.
It is recommended to receive 3-5 consecutive sessions

Deep tissue massage is aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots (also known as “adhesions.”)
Relaxation massage is a gentle Swedish massage that uses smooth, gliding strokes to help you relax. The massage therapist will move at a slower pace and use lighter pressure.
There is less emphasis on working out serious adhesions or “knots” in the muscle tissue, which can be uncomfortable and cause some people tense up against the pressure.
In a relaxation massage, the therapist won’t push your pain limits in order to get the muscle to release.
You might even fall asleep! It’s a good choice for someone who is getting a massage for the first time, or someone who just wants to bring their stress level down.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy:
Lymph Drainage Therapy is an innovative hands-on method of lymphatic drainage developed by Bruno Chikly, MD, DO.
LDT is a gentle technique that works through the body’s interstitial and lymphatic system to activate the body liquid circulation and stimulate the functioning of the immune and parasympathetic nervous systems. This therapy is excellent in reducing inflammation.
Reflexology is the practice using maps or reflex areas of the feet, hands and other areas to stimulate the body’s organs.
These reflexes serve as electric terminals, in which every organ of the body is detected, and thus can be treated.
Under the manipulation of these areas, stagnant energy that can be housed in the body is released, like when we play the meridians (Chinese medicine) or “Zen lines” (Thai massage).
There are multiple benefits to be gained by receiving this therapy, including:
- Improves blood circulation
- Improves organ function in general
- Relieves headaches
- Relieves constipation
- Releases tension
- Activates the parasympathetic nervous system (relaxation)
