Traditional Thai massages have been around for over 2,500 years. The practice is thought to have been started by Buddha’s own physician, Shivago Komarpaj.
This technique is different than western style massages in that instead of gliding and kneading motions, Thai massage uses pressure point techniques combined with stretching that release accumulated tension to enhance flexibility and range of motion and increase the flow of energy.
The movements in traditional Thai massage are most similar to yoga. The therapist uses their hands, knees, legs, and feet to move the client through a series of stretches. The clients overall health is improved due to the application of deep muscle compression, joint mobilization and acupressure.
Kelly Erceg is a licensed professional massage therapist who combines eastern and western techniques to provide customers with the best of both worlds, improving their overall health and wellness.
