Thai Massage (nuat thai) is an energizing, rigorous form of massage primarily developed in Thailand, but with influences from traditional Chinese, Indian and Southeast Asian medicine systems. The relaxing body positions used in the course of the massage also show influence from yoga practices. This therapeutic massage is effective in reducing physical and mental stress through skilful manipulation of body positions and application of deep rhythmic and static pressures and massaging actions throughout the body.

What to expect:
Thai massage Singapore sessions usually last for 1 to 2 hours (more if you want a more rigorous massage). During a session, our therapist/s will ask you to change into loose, comfortable clothes and lay on a firm mat or mattress on the floor. These sessions can be done solo or with a group of patients in a large room (making it perfect as a corporate or office incentive to reduce stress in the workplace). The therapist may ask you to assume yoga-like positions or may lean on your body using her hands to apply firm, but rhythmic pressure. Different positions are used to maximise the benefits of rhythmic pressing and gentle stretching of the body through finger, toe, and ear-pulling, knuckle cracking, as well as walking on the back.
The best benefits of Thai-style massage include:
Thai massage, however, is not for everyone. This massage style is not recommended for people with infectious skin diseases, rashes, and open wounds, those who’ve just gone through surgery, chemotherapy/radiation (unless doctor-recommended), as well as those who are prone to blood clots as the massage may cause these clots to be dislodged and cause dangerous blockage. Pregnant women are also not advised to undergo therapy, unless the doctor allows.
