Benefits of Thai massage with oil
Deep pressure, gliding and stretching movements stimulate blood flow
Improves sleep quality by calming the central nervous system and reducing tension
Relieves sciatica, arthritis, and back pain symptoms
Why we recommend it
“This treatment clears energy channels, rebalances your posture and boosts your flexibility,” Nadège, our lead therapist says. “It’s the sort of treatment that blurs the lines between acupressure and deep tissue, so it’s ideal if you’ve got sore muscles or if you're feeling stressed.”
What to expect from mobile Thai massage in London
Your therapist will arrive at your home with a mobile massage table and oils for your treatment. Grab some towels for the table (two large ones and a smaller one for the headrest are ideal).
After a consultation to understand your medical history and areas of focus, your therapist will begin a traditional Thai massage. They’ll use oil for smooth gliding motions, targeting tension in your neck, back and shoulders.
Your therapist will apply pressure to restrict and then restore blood flow to various areas of your body. This will cause a rush of heat to your limbs and improve circulation.

Thai massage is a form of acupressure therapy that combines deep tissue massage, mild stretches, and stimulation of acupressure points to balance body and mind.
To ease neck, shoulder, and back strain, natural, massage oil blends are applied with fluid, flowing strokes. Improved blood circulation, lowered stress levels, and better sleep are just some of the many advantages. It's ideal in helping your body's natural healing processes along.
Thai massages are an effective technique to regulate your body's energy and are also excellent for relieving muscle stress. If you enjoy treatments that use medium-strong pressure, they're also a wonderful approach to reduce stress.
Your body will be partially covered by a towel for your massage as oil is applied to your skin. Your therapist will leave the room to allow you to undress to your underwear (which must be worn on your lower half at all times). It's up to you if you'd like to keep your bra on if you normally wear one.
