TRADITIONAL THAI MASSAGE (NUAD BO'RARN - YOGA MASSAGE)

Traditional Thai therapeutic massage (Nuad Bo'Rarn) is an ancient discipline that draws from many sources including Indian Ayurvedic, Yoga, Japanese Shiatsu and traditional Chinese massage.

The techniques use the thumbs, palms, hands, elbows, knees and feet to apply varying amounts of pressure as well as stretching, kneading, tapping in a well ordered structure.

Stretching and extending the range of motion of your body are an important part of Thai massage. The stretching often takes the form of double or assisted Yoga (that is the reason why Nuad Bo'Rarn is also named "Yoga massage").

The essential purpose of Nuad Bo'Rarn or Thai Yoga massage is to obtain or re-establish the right flux of energy within your body.

The effects are preventive and soothing.

This ancient wholistic therapy strives to promote wellness and vitality by helping your body return to a state of balance, harmony, flexibility and health.

Multiple benefits include release of muscular tension and stiffness, suppleness and stimulation of the digestive system as well as improved blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.

Apart from being relaxing yet energizing, Thai traditional massage is also believed to help with detoxification, bolstering your immune system, calming muscular pains and of course soothing ordinary muscular aches from sport or other activities.

Nuad Bo'Rarn massage is practiced on a floor mat with you being comfortably dressed in soft loose cotton clothing. We recommend a minimum duration of 1h30.

LOMI-LOMI (HAWAIEN MASSAGE)

A traditional hands-on hawaien healing art, Lomi-Lomi is a deeply relaxing experience.

Derived from the ancient Polynesians, the alternate name for "Lomilomi" is "Loving Hands massage", a connection of heart, hands and soul with the source of all life.

To understand its depth, it helps to refer to the Hawaiian philosophy called Huna (ancient system of healing and spiritual development), to the word Aloha (tolerance, compassion, respect,...) and to the Ho'oponopono tradition (practice of reconciciliation and forgiveness, path to the unity consciousness).

Lomi Lomi works gently yet deeply into your muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, totally nurturing your body and enabling you to relax, give in and simply be.

The practionner works intuitively. In this respect there is no set format or sequence and your session is unique and personalized.

Your massage is given in fluid, rhythmic motion using the forearms as well as the hands. The feeling is like gentle waves moving over and under your body.

Mostly slow and very relaxing, it may be at times a little faster and therefore more invigorating and enlivening to your body.

Different parts of your body may be massaged at the same time, for example one arm or hand may be working on your shoulder and the other hand may be working on your opposite hip. This assists you in totally relaxing as it is difficult for your brain to focus on the two different areas at once. By not working on areas in isolation a deep sense of balance and harmony is achieved.

Lomi-Lomi is practiced on a massage table wearing disposable undergarments with your body covered by a towel.

SPORTS MASSAGE (SWEDISH, DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE)

This approach, a combination of swedish massage and deep-tissue, is especially recommended if you experience consistent pain, if you are involved in heavy physical activity, or if you simply enjoy a strong and deep pressure massage feeling.

This sports massage is designed to relieve tension in your muscles and fascias (connective tissues).

It focuses on your muscles located below the surface of your top muscles and includes effleurage, petrissage, vibration, tapotement, kneading and manipulation of your muscles, joint mobilization and joint manipulation.

A particular attention is dedicated to your shoulders, your back and your legs areas.

The main purpose of sports massage is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body's soft tissues during physical activity. In addition to feeling good, sports massage reduces the heart rate and blood pressure, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, reduces muscle tension, improves flexibility, and relieves pain and fatigue.

Sports massage is practiced on a massage table wearing disposable undergarments with your body covered by a towel.

SIAM OIL MASSAGE

Siam oil massage is a relaxing massage, using 100% pure and natural vegetal oils (sweet almond, jojoba, macadamia, hazelnut or coconut).

A choice of more then 20 essential oils with different properties and aromatic descriptions are offered, allowing you to receive a personalized massage.

The therapist applies oil to your skin in fluid, stroking motions accompanied with varying degrees of pressure, focusing on energy lines and insisting on areas of muscle pain.

This discipline combines elements of Nuad Bo'Rarn and Siam Foot massage with Indian (Ayurvedic), Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, Swedish and Californian techniques.

A unique experience!

Siam oil massage is particularly good for relieving tension, improving blood circulation and lymphatic drainage as well as improving the tone and elasticity of the skin.

REFLEXOLOGY - SIAM FOOT MASSAGE

This three thousand year old healing technique has its origins in China. It consists of stimulating the zones on the sole of the foot that are believed to correspond to the organs of the body.

Siam reflexology is an excellent synthesis of traditional forms to be found in China, Japan and Korea.

A blend of creams and oils are applied to your feet and legs below your knees during the massage and a small wooden stick is used to apply pressure for better stimulation.

Marvellously relaxing, this therapy aims to re-establish the harmony of your body and to correct any energy imbalances that might be present.

Considered to stimulate blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, Thai reflexology can also help in the soothing of headaches, back pains, sinusitis, stress, asthma and constipation.

Siam reflexology is not recommended during pregnancy, menstruation, or for persons with cardiac conditions. One should avoid eating 30 minutes before the session.

The treatment is ideally practiced while seated comfortably in a special chair with the feet up on a stool, or may be done on a massage table.

REIKI (Usui Shiki Ryoho)

Reiki (pronounced ray - key) is a form of healing in which universal or spiritual energy is passed from healer to patient through the healers's hands.

This is an ancient eastern technique, thought to have originated as a Tibetan Buddhist practice thousands of years ago.

Reiki means Universal Life Force Energy in Japanese. a vital force which permeates all living things.

The Reiki healer acts as a channel of energy, gently and passively placing his hands in different positions over or on your body from the head to the toes.

Each position is held for between 3-5 minutes.

Usually, you feel a pleasant warming heat on the area that is being treated.

This deeply warming relaxation enables energy blockages within your body to be released, and restart your own self-healing powers.

Reiki, both powerful and gentle, treats your whole person, including body, emotions, mind and spirit. It balances, harmonizes and restores the different energy systems.

Main benefits of Reiki :

  • Increases the therapeutic effects of both conventional medicines and alternative remedies or treatments.
  • Promotes relaxation and reduces stress, tension and anxiety.
  • Relieves pain and discomfort of chronic diseases.
  • Promotes recovery from surgery.
  • Helps children in their growth process, particularly with stress and learning difficulties.
  • A powerful tool for personal growth and for improving your quality of life.

Reiki is a safe, simple and natural healing technique.

Reiki is practiced fully clothed preferably on a massage table.

 

NOTE :

The different treatments proposed here should be considered as complementary to existing medical treatments or other therapies, not as a replacement.

If in doubt about any side effects from these natural treatments, please in all cases consult your doctor.
