THAI MASSAGE IN WAIKIKI, HONOLULU
Thai massage is an ancient modality dating back to 2,500 years ago. This technique was developed by Buddhist monks utilizing stretching and gentle pressure along vital energy lines to increase wellness, flexibility, and alleviate joint and muscle tension. Eastern healing approaches this massage technique with the focus being on the vital energy pathway known as sen. When these energy lines within the body are manipulated and stimulated, blockages tend to break down which promotes healing and restores balance in the body. Gentle pressure on energy lines and yoga-like stretching is used to relax the whole body on a deeper level.
This modality is perfect for frequent or experienced massage goers as it involves a significant amount of stretching and at times, unexpected postures to relieve tense muscles. Therapists use a variety of techniques and sequences involving compression, pulling, stretching, and rocking. Additionally, therapists will use their own body as a tool by incorporating thumbs, palms, elbows, knees and feet to create a relaxing movement in the body of the client.
