aiming to release muscular tension
and stretch out tight muscles
New Sky Thai Massage in Southampton offers traditional Thai massage, Nuad Phaen Boran as it is called in Thailand.
Thai traditional massage, also called ancient or authentic massage, originates from the time of the Buddha and at New Sky we honour that tradition.
This type of massage is a method of aligning the energies of the body.
A session at New Sky usually takes 90 minutes but a 120 minutes massage session is certainly possible and during this session, our therapist uses point pressure, muscle stretching and compression done in a rhythmic movement of gentle rocking.
The therapist helps stretch your body into a variety of yoga-like positions at the same time doing manual compression strokes on the muscles to further enhance the stretch and release tension. For your session, please wear loose and comfortable clothing. No oils are used in during this Thai traditional massage
We have had questions from customers for a traditional Thai massage and using oil but we are happy to explain that oils are not used during a traditional massage session, for an oil massage, check out the body massage page.
This type of massage is a unique form of energy bodywork that leads to a deep release and enables you to reach your full potential. Working on the floor enables the therapist the usage of her body weight and the use of other techniques.
The treatments take longer than an oil massage but a traditional Thai massage is more thorough and has more profound deep tissue effects than other forms of bodywork. At New Sky we effectively resolve many specific issues and problems, such as lack of use resulting from long hours sitting at a desk or driving.
A single massage session does help but it is obvious that you need to keep your muscles in shape and for that, you will need to exercise and with exercising you will "hurt" your muscles. Like is explained on the sports massage page, a massage helps effectively get your muscles quicker in shape by using the massage techniques that really help.
