Holistic & Therapeutic Body Treatments
Chi Nei Tsang (Taoist Abdominal Massage)
Unique to Thailand, Chi Nei Tsang is excellent for a diversity of health imbalances from digestive problems to nervous tension and stress. It promotes circulation and therefore health of the internal organs, while also balancing the nervous system to release stress and facilitate healing. Based on the Taoist theory that refers to the "gut' as a "second brain', this treatment releases stored emotional and psychological tension and stress thereby promoting healing on an emotional level. A series of treatments is most beneficial. Chi Nei Tsang is especially recommended for all detoxification, stress release and weight balancing programs.
This is a detoxifying treatment, using gentle rhythmic strokes and soft pumping movements to encourage the movement of lymphatic fluid without the firm pressure techniques of a regular massage. The lymphatic system acts as a transportation network for the immune system and also as a filter for harmful toxins. By encouraging the movement of lymph fluid to localised lymph nodes your body is supported in efficiently eliminating waste products. Lymphatic drainage may be particularly beneficial in addressing water retention, detoxification and weight loss. A gentle and soothing treatment also recommended to calm the nervous system and restore sleep. For maximum benefits, two or more treatments are recommended.
Reiki, a Japanese word meaning "Universal Life Energy', is a therapy in which the Reiki healer is a channel or conduit for the energy. Reiki is an extremely effective technique for stress release and total relaxation. A sense of peace, vitality, and joy combined with the extremely pleasant feeling of security are common experiences. Reiki accelerates the body's natural healing power and opens the mind, body and spirit to balance on an emotional and mental level. It is a nurturing energy that harmonises the mind, body and soul.
Indian Head Massage

Using deep thumb and finger pressure, you will experience improved circulation to the head, the release of emotional and physical tension, and an enhanced state of relaxation and mental clarity.
Traditional Asian Hand Massage
Inspired by Korean hand acupuncture, this highly effective treatment opens the energy channels of your chest, lungs, and heart centre thereby facilitating the release of accumulated emotional stress and old emotional patterns, particularly those associated with sadness and grief. Profoundly effective for opening your heart centre and facilitating the flow of joy, love, and bliss, this treatment has a deeply balancing effect on your psyche. It also soothes the nerves in the arms and hands, helps getting rid of tension associated with desk work.
Traditional Asian Foot Massage
Ancient Chinese theory of approximately 5000 years ago observed that feet are miniature maps of your entire body, with specific points on the feet corresponding to all major body parts and organs. This treatment uses specific pressure points to systematically activate the nerve reflexes, thereby stimulating all body organs and tissues to improve overall function and wellbeing. Effective for calming the mind, relieving headaches and inducing deep and restful sleep.

Traditional Thai Massage
Thai massage is based on the discovery of ten invisible energy lines called Sen, which run along the body. Your journey begins with a masterful combination of Thai stretching techniques and deep tissue pressure point massage. This stimulates the blood flow, releases toxins, and allows the body to naturally heal itself and restore suppleness. Daily Thai Massage can help accelerate the pace of the detoxification process and reduce any discomfort. This treatment is available with or without the use of a hot herbal compress. The hot herbal compress, which is an ancient Thai healing tradition, uses a potent blend of herbs that are designed to open energy pathways directly affecting the brain. This can help to clear mental fog, soothe and calm the mind.
