THAI TABLE MASSAGE
"The best massage in Ft. Lauderdale"
WHAT IS THAI TABLE MASSAGE?
The ancient healing art of Traditional Thai Massage dates back over 2,500 years and was considered a spiritual practice connected directly to the teachings of Buddha. Its earliest roots lie not in Thailand, but in India. Table Thai Massage brings the incredible benefits of Thai Massage - usually performed on a mat on the floor - to the comforts of a massage table. Thai massage combines acupressure, yoga and massage to create a truly holistic massage experience. Thai Table Massage - also known as Swe-Thai - is a unique style of massage that magically blends the ancient Eastern knowledge of a highly revered form of medical massage with specific, advanced soft tissue therapies. Swe-Thai is not just performing Thai massage on the table, but blending many of its techniques and theories with proven and highly effective Western treatments. While other types of massage therapy might use similar techniques, the magic found in Swe-Thai massage is not just in the techniques but more so in the unique marriage of eastern and western hands-on therapies.
HOW IS THAI TABLE MASSAGE PERFORMED?
Our Thai massage is performed on a Massage Table by our therapist certified in Thai Table Massage. As this body work includes stretching and Yoga positions, you have the choice of utilizing proper draping, a yoga outfit, briefs or compression shorts, or be clothed in very loose, comfortable clothes. Table Thai massage combines pressure point work with a wide variety of stretching movements, gentle rocking and rhythmic compressions applied very slowly. At times, our therapist will get up on the table and work over you, using her arms and legs to manipulate your muscles. This really adds to the level of power she can deliver to deeper depths and more accurate stretches. Thai Table Massage is sometimes jokingly referred to as the Lazy Person's Yoga. Our therapist moves you through a connected series of stretches and compressions using her hands, forearms, elbows, knees and even feet. In Thai bodywork the therapist may use her whole body in leverage to apply pressure, use rhythmic touch as well as some cross-fiber stroking of muscle and tendons and the treatment can be vigorous or gentle depending on your need or preference.

The Swe-Thai routine was designed specifically to treat general neck and back conditions. When utilized properly, the biomechanically correct techniques allow our therapist to perform much more concentrated work. Other benefits of Thai Table Massage include greater flexibility, flow of energy, deep relaxation, and feeling of well being.
