Acupressure in Thai Massage

Thai massage without acupressure is not traditional Thai massage. Traditional Thai massage is an ancient form of healing and is based on the four elements of earth, water, wind and fire. The wind moves on the sen lines (energy lines). The wind moves the water (all fluids in the body). The acupressure stimulates the movement of the wind along the sen lines and helps to bring the body into balance.
