Thai Massage has been called “assisted yoga” and consists of compression, rocking, stretching and pulling to relieve tension and enhance flexibility and range of motion. Instead of the relaxing gliding and kneading motions characteristic of more popular forms of massage, in Thai massage, the therapist uses hands, arms, feet and knees to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches while applying deep muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure. In this style of massage, the patient wears comfortable, loose-fitting clothes, and the practice performed on a mat on the floor.
In Emily’s East-West Fusion massage, she fuses the Eastern styles of Thai, Reflexology and Reiki along with the Western styles of Swedish, Myofascial Release and Sports Massage to create a deeply spiritual and healing modality that is customized to meet each individual’s and physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs.
The East-West Fusion massage balances and restores the entire system, improves circulation, relaxes muscles and mind, and brings healing and stimulation to all the systems of the body. It is appropriate for anyone regardless of flexibility. If major health concerns such as cancer or heart disease are present, your doctor’s approval is advised.
