Traditional Thai massage is an alternative medical treatment to relieve pain, but it can also play a health-maintaining role. It is most akin to a masseuse arranging a client’s body in various yoga poses. In this respect, it differs significantly from other types of massage, in which the client's passivity is more characteristic.
The Thai massage usually lasts 60 minutes, lying on a mattress placed on the floor, and the client attends the event in full clothing. Traditional Thai massage does not use oil or cream.
Thai massage has a more energizing, rejuvenating and mentally stimulating effect.
