"Marsha — I wanted to thank you again for your marvelous massage. As has been true for over 15 years, I always feel dramatically better after our sessions. You always seem to know exactly what to do and how to relieve my pain and get me back on the golf course. My flexibility and range of motion are always improved and I am able to swing better and score better. My golfing opponents are jealous! I simply don't know what I'd do without you. Thank you again."

Thai Massage

Thai Massage is a type of massage that involves stretching and deep massage. This technique is done either on a yoga mat or a massage table. At Massage Extraordinaire in San Diego, we offer Thai table massage. The massage client can either wear loose, comfortable clothes or be properly covered to allow movement.

History of Thai Massage

The founder of Thai massage is said to have been Shivago Komarpaj, who was the Buddha’s physician over 2,500 years ago. Thai massage is a combination of influences from Indian, Chinese, Southeast Asian cultures and traditions of medicine.

Techniques Used in Thai Massage

The massage client wears loose, comfortable clothes. The client is put into many yoga-like positions during the massage. The therapist leans on the client’s body using hands and usually straight forearms locked at the elbow to apply firm rhythmic pressure. The session includes rhythmic pressing and stretching of the entire body.
