Massage Therapy in Leeds (1 hr) £40
This world-renowned ancient art of healing involves applying pressure on the body's energy meridians as well as your veins and muscle tips in order to release built-up tension, improve blood circulation, and free your body of toxins that gather in tired or overworked muscles.
Here the client wears loose fitting clothes allowing the therapist to manipulate the joints and muscles of your body whilst the client is laid down upon a firm padded bed. No oils are used in this traditional Thai massage and it is known in Thailand as "nuat phaen boran".
The Massage practitioner leans on the recipient's body using hands and usually straight forearms locked at the elbow to apply firm rhythmic pressure. The Massage generally follows the Sen lines on the body. The therapist can use their legs and feet to fixate the body or limbs of the client.
The massage starts at the feet and gradually progresses up to the head by using gentle flowing exercise movements whereby the recipient’s body is moved, loosened and stretched. The energetic aspect of this massage is also focused by acupressure application along the energy lines of the body to restore the flow of energy throughout the body with the purpose to harmonize and energize.
