Thai Massage

Thai Massage is called by a multitude of names including Thai Folk Massage, Thai Physical Therapy, Thai Yoga Massage, Thai Yoga Bodywork, Thai Bodywork, The Moving Meditation, Thai Medical Massage, and Sacred Thai Healing. The particular style we offer as a service at Scents of Serenity is of Lanna (Northern Thai) tradition and has roots in Reusi healing methods. Massage is one root of therapeutic practices grown out of a culture whose focus is nature, health, longevity, and the generation of good will. As called in it’s native language Gaai Ya Paap Bam Bat, Thai Folk Physical Therapy is a massage form that uses element-based analysis techniques which create balance in the body systems by easing the relationship between the five layers of the physical body, aka skin, tissue, channels, bones and organs. This rejuvenating treatment decompresses and cleanses your physical body by directly soothing the muscular, skeletal, nervous, and digestive systems. It quiets the mind, settles the body and frees tension allowing the body to work more efficiently with an aligned range of motion. Each session is unique and addresses body ailments as they arise and can be used preventative care for future illness.

Thai Massage sessions begin with a lifestyle consultation, which will asks questions about body aches, daily habits, occupation, and physical patterns, giving our Thai Massage Therapist, Malia, a general understanding of the movements and ailments of your body.  During your session, she will use her hands, elbows, forearms, knees, and feet to sense and soothe muscular constrictions. Your session flow through a combination of muscle compressions, trigger point release, and passive stretches to your joints, and may include the use of steaming herbal bundles, fire cupping, spoon scraping, scarf wrapping, and dhee (beating) techniques to therapeutically soothe ailments. Homemade Thai herbal oils and lineaments may be added to sessions that require deep work and abdominal therapy. Our massage sessions are practiced on a thick comfortable mat with supportive pillows and a face cradle if needed. For total comfort, we prefer our clients to attend sessions in dark clothing that is easy to move in, long pants and shoulders covered is welcomed.

Fire Cupping Add-On

Cupping

Cupping is an ancient practice that is in essence like trigger point work. The cups lift the body’s layers off one another to allow space for increased circulation and draining of the area, thereby nourishing the muscles and surrounding tissues. Fire is used to create a suction with the cups which is comfortable and can vary in intensity.

  • Please note that you may experience discolorations that can occur from the release and clearing of stagnation and toxins from the body. These are not bruises and are not permanent.

Pricing

  • Firing cupping is included at no additional cost during the Thai Massage or Table Thai Massage service if the practitioner finds it beneficial to incorporate in the session and will depend on the clients needs at the time of services. If fire cupping is added, it will be discussed prior to the service. The pricing option below applies only when cupping is added on as an enhancement to any of our other massage therapy services outside of Thai and Table Thai Massage.
