Nuad Boran (traditional Thai massage) is an ancient massage originating from Thailand. This unique form of massage is performed on a mat on the floor while being completely dressed (no oil is used).
There are two styles of Nuad Boran:
- Southern style Thai massage is heavily influenced by China, and includes mainly the use of pressure on acupressure points throughout the body.
- Northern style Thai massage is heavily influenced by India, and includes many yoga like stretches performed by the therapist. It is a combination of yoga and acupressure. This style of massage is often referred to as yoga for lazy people.
I offer only Northern style Thai massage.
Who should receive Thai massage
If you feel tired and want to relax, traditional Thai massage is a fantastic option for you. It promotes serenity and well-being while affecting the whole body, increasing flexibility and lubricating joints.
Who should not receive a Thai massage
If you have joint problems, are in the first few days of your period, or have a limited range of motion in one of your limbs, Thai massage is not for you.
If you are pregnant, I recommend having a Thai Pregnancy Massage instead of having a traditional Thai massage.
