NUAD BO-RARN, the Traditional Massage of Thailand, is an ancient form of therapeutic bodywork first practiced over 2500 years ago in the nation of Thailand and blends gentle
rocking, rhythmic acupressure and deep assisted stretches to open, exercise and tone all the systems of the body. Thai Massage relaxes, refreshes and revitalizes, both giver and receiver, and facilitates mind/body/spirit balance.  Joints are loosened and opened through manipulation, muscles are stretched, internal organs are toned, vitality is increased and a deep state of relaxation can be achieved. Performed on a floor mat in loose comfortable clothing, both practitioner and client shift through four traditional positions; front, back, side and seated.  Thai Massage is often referred to as ‘Yoga for two’  and practiced in a meditative state.  Please wear loose comfortable clothing.
