Thai acupressure massage is a form of deep tissue massage, acting on the meridians of the body, using pressure points, many of which overlap those used in shiatsu and acupuncture. It can have significant effects on acute and long-standing issues, because it treats the body as a whole structure. It’s also worth maintaining as a preventative measure.
I practise Thai acupressure intuitively, feeling where there are areas of tension and their consequences in other areas of the body. I combine my experience of typical conditions and their treatments with a sensitivity to each person’s unique presentation.
