Traditional Thai massage is the medicinal massage practiced by the Buddhist monks of Thailand. This massage has been handed down from master to student for the last 2,500 years. Thai massage combines acupressure points from China and assisted yogic stretching from India, which open up the body energetically and physically.
The ultimate goal of traditional Thai massage is for both the giver and the receiver to reach a state of enlightenment. On a mundane level, this massage exists to heal a person not only physically and emotionally but also spiritually.
Jewl studied the tradition of Pichest Boonthumme of Thailand, from his students Amy Thompson and Marek Sawicki of Boulder, CO. His style of Thai Massage is centered around the comfort and needs of the client. It is a gentle form of bodywork, done on a mat on the floor, using pressure along Sen lines (energy lines), and stretching in several body positions to affect a sense of total balance.
Currently this modality is available only in outcall. We are working on a solution for in office Thai massage treatments.
