Thai Massage is a type of massage in Thai style that involves blending yoga like stretching and deep massage. It is usually performed on the floor, and the customer is provided with loose and comfortable clothes to change into, to allow easy movement during the performance.

Thai Massage is known in Thailand as "Nuad PanBoran" which is literally meant the ancient manner massage. Typically no oils are used in Thai Massage. However, oil is slightly used by our masseuses for smooth performances and for preventing customers from hurting their skin.

Services provided can be done solo or in a group of a dozen or more. Rooms are available for group and couples massages.

During the performance, the massage therapist leans on the recipient's body using hands and usually straight forearms locked at the elbow to apply firm rhythmic pressure. The massage generally follows the Sen (lines on the body) somewhat analogous to meridians or channel common in Chinese medicine and India nadis. Legs and feet of the giver can be used to fixate the body or limbs of the recipient. In other positions, hands fixate the body, while the feet do the massaging action.

A full Thai Massage Session typically lasts two hours or more and it includes rhythmic pressing and stretching of the entire body. This may include pulling fingers, toes, ears, cracking the knuckles, walking on the recipients's back and arching the recipient's body into bhujangasana or cobra position.
