Thai massage combines both physical and energetic aspects. It is a deep, full-body massage progressing from the feet up, and focusing on sen or energy lines throughout the body, with the aim of clearing blockages in these lines, and thus stimulating the flow of blood and lymph throughout the whole body.
This great method involves application of pressure to the feet with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques with the use of menthol and camphor lotion. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet, with the premise of a physical influence to the body.
This popular Western massage technique is what everybody generally refers as ‘massage’. It is designed to relax the entire body muscles from strains and knots by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart.
