Benefits of Thai massage
Releases stiffness after exercise and increases flexibility in the body
Reduces cortisol to de-stress the mind
Promotes a sense of deep relaxation
“This treatment ticks so many boxes” says Nadège, our lead therapist. “It’s perfect at any point during the day, as it both revitalises and relaxes your body, and it promotes both physical and mental wellbeing too.”
"A Thai yoga treatment can also increase flexibility and help to manage pain in your shoulders, neck and back."
During your treatment
Your expert therapist will first take the time to talk through what you want to get from your treatment.
This form of Thai massage is performed fully clothed, and includes plenty of gentle motion to boost circulation.
They’ll target acupressure points with thumbs, elbows, forearms and feet, alongside helping you through guided stretches.

That’s up to you – you’re able to book a Thai yoga treatment that lasts 60, 90 or 120 minutes.
Thai yoga treatments have you stretching a lot, so light, flexible clothing is best – the kinds of clothes you’d wear to the gym or a yoga class.
Thai yoga is a treatment centred around guided stretches, but therapists also use more typical techniques, including targeting acupressure points, and using their hands, forearms, elbows and feet, to help to release muscle tension.
No – it’s still a really relaxing massage that doesn’t require any effort from you. You’ll be helped through any movement in your treatment by your therapist.
To keep you and your therapist safe, it’s important to hold off on getting a massage if you’re unwell with a fever or flu-like symptoms, or if you have a contagious skin disease. Therapists have the right to cancel your treatment if they think it will harm you or them in any way.
If you have a health condition and you’re not sure about booking a massage, consult your GP for advice beforehand.
