The Traditional Thai Massage (or 'Lazy Yoga' Massage) that we offer in our Southampton Massage Studio, is a completely different style to the traditional western oil massage. In Thai massage you remain fully clothed through the treatment and no oil is used. The treatment uses pressure points and yoga like stretching to release tension and relax muscles.
Unlike some other Southampton Thai Massage practices, we do not ever offer 'anything else' (so don't ask please) which means you can be assured you will get the best high quality, traditionally qualified, insured and ethical Traditional Thai Massage, tailored to your needs.
There are many different physical and mental benefits to recieiving a Traditional Thai Massage; such as a feeling of greater mobility and decrease in pain and tension, we have detailed a few more of these below, however if you would like to know more about whether this is the right treatment for you, please call us on 02380 639747.

YOU Massage Southampton Thai Massage
A Traditonal Thai Massage in Southampton, a really unique experience that will leave you feeling better than you could have imagined. Southampton Thai Massage is common but we offer a strictly professional, Thai Massage.
The philosophy behind Thai Massage is to open the energy channels (known as wind channels) in the body so that energy flow is increased and wellbeing restored. The massage works along Sen lines which are similar to the energy meridians used in other massage therapies such as Acupressure and Reiki.
Thai Massage is often referred to as Thai yoga massage, or 'lazy yoga' because of the yoga style stretches used in the treatment. During a treatment the therapist uses her hands, arms, feet and knees to press along the Sen lines and also stretches the muscles to move the energy through the body. This also has the effect of giving a fantastic massage which is relaxing but invigorating at the same time. The pressure points work deeply into the muscles to release tension and stretches relieve stiffness.
