Thai massage or “Nuad Phaen Thai” is a thousand year old massage technique that combines deep massage and stretching to relieve stress, pain, and injury. By using focused pressure with our hands, elbows, and even feet, we can directly relieve pain and tension in the joints, muscles, and tendons. Stretching using Yoga-like poses are also important to help prevent these problems from returning.
Western massage techniques relaxes muscles through cyclic motions to increase circulation and remove tension. The use of oils assists in making its rubbing motion to be more effective. Sports massage applies vigorous pressure to the large muscle groups while Swedish massage is a soothing approach that calms and relaxes overactive muscles.
Our path combines eastern and western massage techniques that are blended and customized to meet the individual needs of each client. The end result is a completely different experience than either method by itself and we think a much better result.
We hope you enjoy your experience at The Root of Wellness.
