Thai Massage benefits those who ‘move more’ and also those that ‘move less’
A Thai Massage takes place on a comfortable futon mattress on the floor. The treatment is carried out without oils or lotions and you remain fully clothed throughout.
During the session a combination of acupressure, rhythmical rocking movements and assisted stretches are used by applying the hands, feet, forearms and elbows in a flowing series of moves to help free the tension trapped within the body. Energy lines, acupressure points, muscles, ligaments and joints are stretched and opened, stimulating flow and encouraging more freedom of movement. It also can diminish tension, relieve stiffness, increase mobility and create a feeling of well-being, vitality and deep relaxation.
There are four main positions: with the client lying on their back (supine), on their front (prone), side-lying, or seated. The treatment begins at the feet and works up through the body, finishing with the shoulders, neck and head. This follows the flow of energy through the body.
Each session is varied according to the needs of the client.
Treatments are 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours. To gain maximum benefit from the treatment 2 hours is recommended.
From the moment you arrive to a friendly welcome everything is highly professional. The reception and treatment areas are of a very high standard which immediately gives you confidence that this a Lady knows what she is talking about. Starting with a full medical history check, and a detailed explanation to make sure that the treatments are the right ones you need. When the treatment start she manages to find and identify problem areas as if “by magic”, and keeps you informed during the treatments. She also has an excellent take on mental issues that can be seen within any physical ailments you might be suffering from and treats you with respect and kindness.
As a former PGA Golf Professional for over twenty-five years I found Di’s treatments excellent. She has a very good understanding of golfer’s injury problems and also any self-treatments in the form of exercises (which she fully researches) before letting you try them out yourself.
All in all, a very Professional Lady with a wonderful attitude to helping you get free from pain and improving your health.
I have had many types of massage in the past, but I have to say Diane’s way of working is one of the most thorough. I like that she works on the floor giving a very safe and grounded treatment. You feel like she covers every inch of the terrain and stimulates the parts other therapists have failed to reach. I had anticipated that I might feel tired after the session (from the experience of a friend) but I actually felt very energised. I enjoyed immediate relief of some backache (long car drive of previous day) and had an overall sense of being taken care of. Diane has a real gift when it comes to ‘touching the spot’ and she allows for the release of trapped energy in a way that is completely supportive of your individual process. I live in Kent but will find more excuses in future to travel north to reap the benefits of a Thai massage by Diane.
A complete novice to Thai yoga massage so I didn't know what to expect. I wasn't disappointed - the setting is lovely, calming & tranquil and the massage was from the tip of my toes to the top of my head and did me the world of good. Thanks Diane
