traditional Thai massage

Sometimes called Thai Yoga Massage, Traditional Thai Massage (Nuad Bo Rarn) has its roots in Northern India and the Ayurvedic system of healing. It was founded by Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, a contemporary of the Buddha, who is still respected and honoured in Thailand today as the “Father of Medicine”. Known in Thailand as “lazy man’s yoga”, Thai massage works on the life force or energy pathways that circulate around the body. I trained at the revered Old Medical Hospital in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand in 1998, with further training at the British School of Thai Massage.

reflexology

Reflexology works on the principle that specific points and zones on the feet and hands, known as reflex areas, correspond to all the organs, glands, systems and structures within the body.
Skilled application of pressure to these reflex points and zones can be used to detect and treat imbalances in the body in order to restore harmony and well-being.
