The massage is done on a mat on the floor which allows you to relax completely. I do not use any oils with the exception of some male clients only whose skin texture requires some more attention. Just wearing loose comfortable clothing is all that is necessary, preferably cotton or shorts and not cycling or running gear is not practical and may hamper your session.
Chai encourages you to relax as fully as you can so you can benefit from the treatment ahead. This treatment is now well known the world over. Sometimes this is because so many people have traveled to the Far East, others because of their interest in keeping healthy.
Often people just look at one symptom, instead of looking at the body as a whole, which is how the Thais deal with any situation. A Traditional Thai massage means a full body massage. This allows the practitioner to pick up and tackle so many different problems. In Thailand, massage is second nature. At lunchtime, many locals and business men and women have a massage then go straight back to work. Its not regarded as a treat but simply a way of life.
Traditional Thai massage can meet everyone’s needs in this modern stressful world. It releases tensions in your neck and shoulders, eases life’s general aches and pains and reduces many different types of stress. Some of these conditions can lead to bad sleep patterns, mood swings and a general lack of motivation.The pictures above demonstrate different techniques that were used on that client but it doesn’t mean it would be the same for you due to your individuality.
It is always important to remember that you do not need to have something wrong with you to have a Traditional Thai Massage as the massage itself will keep you fit and well. This will result in more movement and energy which then means there will be less stagnation in the body.
The next time you are saying to yourself that life is too hectic, give time to yourself and book in for a Traditional Thai massage. Really feel the difference, go home and feel rejuvenated and all you have to do is just lie on a mat on the floor, for one hour and Chai does the rest. Just one session and you will really feel the benefits that a good Traditional Thai Massage can bring, whatever your age or occupation.
The massage is done on a mat on the floor which allows you to relax completely. As no oils are used, just wearing comfortable clothes is all that is necessary. Chai encourages you to relax as fully as you can so you can benefit from the treatment ahead.
Some clients like to talk throughout the massage and others like the quiet and stillness. It is important that you flow with what your body is telling you to do.
Chai recognises your individuality so no two treatments are exactly the same; each one is tailored to suit your individual needs as dipicted in the pictures below.
Now meet Wichai, known to everyone as CHAI. Chai practices Traditional Thai Massage and Reiki, in Ilkley, West Yorkshire. He has had a clinic in England since 1994, first in Hebden Bridge and now in Ilkley.
Here we have a rare combination of a person being born in Bangkok Thailand, yet spending more of his life up to now in Britain. This is part of the real explanation of Chai’s success.
Chai studied Traditional Thai Massage at the Wat Po Temple School. Later he gained invaluable experience with his Master Pison Luengcontee, working in his busy Bangkok Clinic.
Having worked with both Thai and English clients, has given Chai a real insight, into how important it is, to tailor the treatment to the individual. Being born into the Buddhist faith and understanding, that at some time, we all need peace and tranquillity in our lives, Chai has ensured that his clinic is a haven of calm.
