The Thai deep tissue massage is the most popular massage in our spa, mostly using Thai technique, that reaches far below the skin surface to deep muscle layers and connective tissues. Pressure is applied with hands, forearms, elbows, knees, and feet to relax knotted tissue, ease tension, and improve circulation.
The passive stretching in Thai deep tissue massage is truly wonderful for loosening up the limbs and creating a feeling of freedom in the body.
It leaves the receiver feeling extremely relaxed and alive, and it’s also very helpful for tiredness, body stiffness, and muscle soreness.
A deep tissue massage is comparable to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure helps to relieve chronic muscle tension. The deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia are the focus (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). This massage also triggers the release of oxytocin and serotonin, which helps to lower stress hormone levels and heart rate while also improving mood and relaxation.
