The Tea about Thai Massage

Thai massage is for everyone regardless of fitness level, mobility or pregnancy. It's a fully clothed massage session with lots of assisted stretching. It's often called the "lazy man's yoga" because of the amount of stretching involved. What exactly happens in a Thai Massage and why would you want to book it?


When you book a Thai Massage with us, you'll arrive to your appointment a few minutes early so you can complete the intake process. Our therapist will determine your range of motion and mobility then decide on what type of Thai massage will be best for you.


Because so much movement is involved, you should definitely wear gym clothes or loose fitting clothes. Once the treatment begins, our therapist will use their bodyweight, hands, elbows, knees and feet to help stretch you. Sometimes, to get the right angle for the stretch and the leverage needed for therapeutic pressure, the therapist may even sit or stand on you! Don't worry, this doesn't always happen - especially if you're injured, pregnant or have mobility issues that require a gentler Thai massage.


Like we mentioned earlier, Thai massage is for everyone. Whether you're 80 years old or training for an Iron Man, your therapist will adjust the session to accommodate your needs. Did you know that Thai massage offers a multitude of health benefits? Check it out:


Stress Relief: According to a study published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, Thai massage has been shown to significantly reduce stress levels in individuals, with 80% reporting a notable decrease in stress after just one session.

Flexibility Boost: Regular Thai massage can improve flexibility by 30% or more, making it a fantastic choice for athletes and anyone looking to enhance their range of motion.
