*NEW 2013: Thai Massage: referred to as “yoga massage,” Thai Massage (Nuad Boran) is an ancient healing system from Thailand that combines passive yoga movements, stretches, massage, and acupressure. The underlying intention of Thai massage is to clear blockages in the body’s energy lines, which in turn frees the body to be more balanced, flexible, and open. Thai massage is given on a mat on the floor, with the client dressed in loose, comfortable clothing.
