How long is a typical treatment
A standard length is 90 minutes, but 1 hour massages are also popular as that's what people are generally familiar with. Thai massage covers a lot of bases, hence a longer amount of time being beneficial. Personally, I love to receive and give 2 hours.
Can I pay with cash?
We accept cash, Visa, Mastercard and our Gift Certificates. Payment is due in full at time of service. Gratuities are at your discretion and are graciously accepted.
What should I expect in a Thai massage treatment?
The treatment is fully clothed and happens on a futon on the ground. There will be a quick check in and a discussion about any relevant health conditions and what you would like to get from the treatment. Each treatment is a little different, but typically it will start with you lying on your back. The massage usually starts at the feet and works up the body. There will be stretching and work on the energetic lines on the body, along with compression massage, focus on pressure points and any knots or tightnesses.
As well as lying on the back, there is a side position, lying face down and a sitting position. Each position allows for particular stretches and massage focuses. Shoulders usually get massaged to some degree in each position.
Can I eat before the treatment?
It is best to have a reasonable empty stomach for the treatment. It is also best to avoid coffee right before the treatment too.
Can I mix with other types of massage or bodywork?
It is best to leave at least 24 hours between different types of treatment. It is best to avoid a strenuous workout for 24 hours after the workout.
Can I receive a Thai massage if I am pregnant?
As long as you have clearance from your GP, a specially adapted massage treatment is very beneficial. Mothers need looking after too!
How often should I receive a Thai yoga massage for optimal benefits?
Once a week is optimum, but once a month or even every two months is more than worthwhile.
Can I choose a male or female therapist for my session?
Neilon is male and the sole therapist. Anyone is welcome to have a friend sit in with them while the treatment happens.
What are the benefits of Thai Yoga Massage?
There is a long list of benefits but a few of the main ones that make Thai massage standout are that it's fully clothed and there's no oil, there's stretching and the body receives in multiple positions. The treatment is holistic and thorough.
How old do I have to be for a treatments?
You must be over 18, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Do I need experience in yoga?
Not at all. Some people call it lazy yoga, as it's like having a yoga session done to you, but no experience is necessary.
