What is Combination Massage
Oasis Thai Massage & Spa has developed its signature Combination massage taking advantage its expertise in Traditional Thai massage and the ever popular Swedish/Deep Tissue massage. The Combo massage will leave one feeling re-energized, relaxed and rejuvenated.
The Combination massage respects all the teachings of Thai massage and acknowledges the existence of the “energy body” which includes “sen” or energy lines through which our life force flows and at the same time utilizes popular elements of the Swedish style with the benefits of increased circulation and the release of toxins from the body’s soft tissues and muscles. The Combo Massage makes recipients feel more balanced physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually by incorporating acupressure, passive yoga therapy and reflexology along ten of the most important sen lines.
Throughout the massage, the Practitioner will utilize their arms, elbows, hands, palms thumbs, fingertips, legs, knees, feet and toe to apply to the body a series of movements including: compressions, pressure points, body stretches, light or hard touch, soft or deep kneading, rhythmic tapping, friction, and vibrations. In addition the Practitioner moves the receivers’ body through specific yoga-like positions and gently rocks the body to more deeply open joints and facilitate limbering. The Practitioner mixes these movements over the massage time allotted and will also incorporate the use of various oils and lotions to assist in the effectiveness of these motions.
Overall, the effect of this practice is increased joint lubrication, increased flexibility, released energy blockages, released soft tissue toxins, and reduced stress translating into better health, vitality and well being.
Our Combo massage is traditionally performed on a futon mat. The recipients choose in equal numbers to be completely disrobed or to wear shorts which provide privacy during stretching movements but allow for oils or lotions to be applied. Regardless, stretching movements are adjusted accordingly and the recipient’s privacy is always maintained. Each session is in a private (or couples) room and the recipient may also select a massage on standard massage table instead of the futon mat. We suggest you avoid heavy eating for 2 to 3 hours prior to the massage.
