Thai Massage is an ancient natural therapy which has been practised for over 2,500 years. It combines the principles of acupressure whereby the "Sen" is stimulated, which is said to balance the energy system in the body, with assisted stretching to open up the body which can help increase flexibility and relieve tension within the joints and muscles. It's all deeply relaxing.

And the good news is that you can try this ultimate relaxation experience that nurtures both body and soul, at that haven of tranquillity within Careys Manor Hotel in Brockenhurst appropriately named "SenSpa".

The History & Health Benefits of Thai Massage

If you're seeking the ultimate relaxation experience that nurtures both your body and your soul, look no further than the ancient art of Thai massage. Originating from the exotic land of Thailand, this therapeutic practice has been passed down through generations and continues to enchant and heal people worldwide. At the award-winning Thai spa, SenSpa, located in the heart of Brockenhurst, Hampshire, you can indulge in the blissful benefits of authentic Thai massage right on your doorstep.

What Is A Traditional Thai Massage?

Thai massage is rooted in the belief that our bodies possess energy lines called "sen" that must flow freely for us to maintain good health and vitality. Drawing influence from Indian Ayurvedic practices and traditional Chinese medicine, Thai massage combines acupressure, assisted yoga stretches, and deep tissue massage techniques to restore balance and harmonise the mind, body, and soul.

The most obvious way traditional Thai massage sets itself apart from other forms of Western massage is that it uses no oil. The Thai therapist works on a mattress on the floor and the client remains fully clothed throughout. Picture this, and it is quite different to what you might first envision when you hear the word ‘massage’.

What Are The Health Benefits?

In Eastern culture, it is believed that all disease stems from energy blockages in the body. Their way of maintaining health or treating disease is the ensure that energy is circulating at all times. This is the primary aim of all oriental therapies, including massage.

One of the key reasons Thai massage is so revered is its ability to alleviate physical pain and tension. The applied pressure and stretching movements work to release any blocked energy and relieve muscle, joint, and tendon stiffness. By targeting specific pressure points, Thai massage stimulates blood circulation, promotes flexibility, and improves overall mobility. Whether you've been experiencing chronic back pain or simply want to unwind after a long day, a Thai massage at SenSpa, near Lymington, is the perfect remedy.

Beyond the physical benefits, Thai massage is also renowned for its positive impact on mental and emotional well-being.

Stress and anxiety melt away as you immerse yourself in the present moment, embracing a sense of serenity and tranquillity.
