Massage therapy also balances our spiritual energy through the power of touch. It is a way to connect with our spiritual selves and our souls.

What is Thai Table Stretching Massage
By stretching the whole body with a focus on the lower half of the body, a Thai table stretching massage treats the energy lines that run through the physical body to free up any blockages and renew flow. It is an ancient treatment combining the soft tissue work found in a holistic massage alongside stretches to work on the energetic system.
The practitioner uses their body to pull, stretch and rock the patient, enhancing the patient’s range of motion, flexibility and relieving tension in the body with joint movement and muscle compression.
