Thai Massage practitioner, Lynsey McCabe trained, completed an exam & qualified in General Thai massage in WatPo, Bangkok (2018).
Thai massage works on the meridian (energy) lines within the body. When you become ill, the flow of energy around the body becomes blocked or is not flowing as freely as it should. When you have a Thai massage it encourages the flow of energy to bring harmony and balance back to the body.
Thai Massage is a deep pressure massage which includes stretching techniques. It may be particularly beneficial for muscular tension following exercise as well as addressing specific discomforts & problems such as chronic back ache & Sciatica.
Using pressure points, muscle stretching and compression in a rhythmic motion, Lynsey uses her hands, feet, elbows, forearms and knees to contour yours into shape. At the end it feels as though you have had everything pulled apart and put back together, and it feels absolutely amazing.
Thai massage may also be beneficial for reducing stress & stress related muscular tension or muscular fatigue, using pressure to relax tight muscles while it also has a toning & stimulating effect to promote muscle tone.
A consultation form is to be completed prior to massage to ascertain your medical history & specific problems & ensure it is safe for you to receive massage. Traditional Thai, floor level massage is clothed & without the use of oil. If you prefer you can have a Mixed Swedish/ Tha mssage which includes essential oils & is upon a treatment couch with less pressure being applied.
A full Thai massage takes 90 minutes to perform but if you prefer a shorter session 1 hour massages are also available.
The benefits of Thai Massage is complemented by a healthy balanced diet, inclusive of the recommended daily amounts of fruit & vegetables and drinking water daily. Nutritional advice is also available at the Beehive should you require it. Lynsey also recommends taking regular exercise and suggests looking at all the fantastic activities available at Beehive Healthcare.
