Cheltenham Thai Massage
Welcome to Cheltenham Thai Massage and Spa, we provide various types of messages and reflexology services. All services are carried out by well trained and experience masseurs.
The process is very simple, you lie on a bed or mat fully clothed or in a robe provided by us. The practitioner will use their thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, feet and knees to stretch your body.
The main channels within the body for distributing energies are called Sen. Each Sen channel is pressed repeated from every direction with the positions of the limbs and trunk being constantly changed.
When the practitioners are sure all the soft tissues have been sufficiently pressed then the stretching beings. Stretches start off small and develop to more large scale for which Thai Massage is known.
What does Thai Massage do?
In normal everyday life we never fully develop our muscles and they become tense and shorten. The brain interprets a shorter muscle as a contraction and therefore inhibits the activities of the antagonistic muscles which weaken as a result.
Regular Thai Massage stretches the muscles back to their normal resting length which deceived the brain into thinking that all is well and therefore it stops inhibiting the antagonistic muscles. It is soon after that tension disappears and joint mobility is restored.
How does It Feel?
Almost all recipients of Thai Massage feel relaxed, refreshed and much more flexible afterwards. Initial recipients of Thai Massage may find some of the pressing uncomfortable but this usually declines with familiarity.
