Thai massage may be the ultimate sports massage. By understanding the world's oldest medicine systems, we become better equipped to treat athletic conditions. Thai massage, also called Thai-Yoga, is rooted in the 7,000-year-old medicine system of Ayurveda.
The treatment improves energy circulation by loosening muscles that commonly tighten and restrict the flow of blood, nerves, oxygen, and other vital energy.

The most notable effects of the treatment sequence include:
Stretching tight muscles
