Traditional Thai Massage is usually performed for 60 minutes minimum.  For maximum benefit, most clients prefer 90 minutes or 2 hours per session.

 Thai Massage was actually developed by Buddhist monks in Thailand as a healing modality 2,500 years ago. Thai massage uses passive stretching and gentle pressure along the body’s energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension and balance the body’s energy systems. Thai massage is both deeply relaxing and energizing.

Thai massage takes place on a mat on the floor, and you wear loose fitting clothing. You should bring or wear something loose and comfortable, like lightweight sweat pants, during your Thai massage. You start by laying on your back, and the therapist uses gentle compression and stretching techniques to open up your body, beginning with your legs. Some people say Thai massage is a little like doing yoga without any effort, because the therapist will push your body into various positions without any work on your part.

Thai massage is done with all your clothes on, so some people recommend it if you feel uncomfortable with nudity like during a Swedish massage. The practitioner literally uses his or her whole body, including her feet, to move your body into various positions during Thai massage.

Thai massage has its roots in a spiritual tradition, and its purpose is to heal a person physically, emotionally and spiritually.
