Thai massage is believed to have been developed by Buddhist monks in Thailand as a healing modality 2,500 years ago. Thai massage uses passive stretching and gentle pressure along the body’s energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension and balance the body’s energy systems. Thai massage is both deeply relaxing and energizing. This form of bodywork is performed on the floor, and the client wears comfortable clothes that allow for movement. No oils are used.

Swedish massage is the most common type of massage in the Western world, and the perfect match for a relaxing vacation. The primary goal of this massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But this therapy goes beyond relaxation: Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, and improving circulation and flexibility, all while easing tension.
Shiatsu is a massage technique originating in ancient Japan; the name means "finger pressure." The principles of the massage are based on the acupuncture points, and pressure is carefully applied to each point using the hands. The pressure stimulates and balances Meridians (the pathways through which life energy flows.) This natural system of energetic touch supports physical health, well being and personal development.
A deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and patients who have sustained physical injury.
