What are the side effects and when should it be avoided?

Thai massage is suitable for everyone, including the very young and the very elderly. However, it should be avoided if you have osteoporosis or very brittle bones; spinal fusions or artificial hip, knee or elbow joints; phlebitis, haemophilia or lymphatic cancer. If you have high blood pressure or heart problems, talk to your doctor before booking a treatment. If pregnant please contact us to find out if thai massage is suitable for your unique situation.

What clothes should I wear for a thai massage session

Loose comfortable clothing is ideal. Jogging bottoms and loose t-shirt are ideal. Normally during a treatment a client will remove their shoes.

Is thai massage an energetic, spiritual or physical treatment.

It can be all of the above or just one depending on the person. Many clients simply appreciate the vigourous nature of the moves and strikes and the effects this has on their muscles, tendons and ligaments. They also benefit from the ability to relax and allow their bodies a chance to unwind. Other people will focus more on the energetic elements of the treatment, based on the sen lines (called meridians in acupuncture). No-one should be put off having a treatment because of their worries about these aspects of the treatment. Your therapist will be working to make you comfortable during the treatment and adjust according to your wishes, viewpoints and needs.
