New Thai Masseur at the Retreat Spa - Aphrodite Hills

An essential part of our spa treatment offerings, Thai Massage is one of our most popular treatments. With our well travelled guests perhaps having experienced Thai massage in Thailand, it is very important that as an award winning spa, we deliver an authentic and traditional experience to our guests with its true integrity maintained and unadulterated.

To that end we are very pleased to introduce Somchai Chansorn to our team. Originally from Bangkok in Thailand, Somchai has come to us with many years of experience having worked in some of the best spas around the world and is an expert in Thai massage in all its forms.
Traditional Thai Massage is one of the oldest massage techniques in existence today. Dating back 2,500 years, Thai massage is said to have been developed by Buddhist monks. Incorporating philosophies surrounding the Chinese concept of acupuncture, Thai massage combines these philosophies with the stretching exercises done by yogis in India. Thai massage is done with the receiver of the massage fully clothed on a mat on the floor. The massage therapist does not use any tools – only their fingers, hands, knees, legs and feet, with no oils used. The technique involves putting gentle but firm pressure on the body as well as relaxing stretching of the limbs and back. Just like in most eastern healing practices, Thai massage makes use of pressure points, which are called sen in Thailand.

Practitioners of Thai Massage claim that there are 72,000 sen in the body, of which ten are on the highest priority when it comes to doing the massage. Applying pressure to these sen points unblocks the flow of energy and restores balance to the body.

Royal Thai Massage incorporates all of the techniques of Thai Massage but with the addition of oils. Using a traditional blend of essential oils to improve circulation and induce relaxation, the practitioner combines acupressure, deep tissue and stretchingtechniques, increasing the circulation of blood within the body to eliminate the toxins that cause pain and illness. Royal Thai Massage was traditionally reserved for the Royal family and has a more rhythmic, flowing technique to release all tension from the body and mind.

Both methods of Thai massage effectively resolve many specific issues and commonplace problems, such as stiffness resulting from long hours sitting at a desk or driving, and has many applications for sport, helping to increase stamina and flexibility, ideal for improving your tennis or golf game.
