Royal Thai Massage
The Royal Thai traditional massage — also known as Thai Yoga massage or passive yoga — is a combination of assisted yoga, massage, and acupressure techniques for unblocking trapped energy and boosting vitality. Our expert therapists manoeuvre your body into yoga-like stretching positions, gently applying pressure along the meridians and mobilising joints. No oils or creams are used during this treatment.
This traditional healing technique is over 2,500 years old and was developed in Thailand by Buddhist monks. It’s a unique and deeply therapeutic experience that improves blood circulation, boosts energy levels, and promotes relaxation.
The therapist follows a series of energy lines called “sen”, which are similar to the meridians in traditional Chinese medicine. By working on these energy lines, we help you release blockages and improve the flow of energy throughout the body.
Our trained therapists can fully customize your Royal Thai Massage to suit your individual needs. Your session can range from a gentle, relaxing experience to a more intense, therapeutic massage. It is often described as a meditative experience that promotes a sense of deep relaxation and inner peace.
A Royal Thai Massage:
- Unblocks trapped energy.
- Increases vitality.
- Relaxes the mind and body, improving sleep and reducing stress.
- Improves flexibility.
- Boosts blood circulation.
What to Expect
Before the massage, our therapists will provide a full consultation, asking you various questions about your health and lifestyle. This is to ensure the treatment is right for you and that we have a proper understanding of what your needs are.
During a Royal Thai Massage, you remain fully clothed and will lie on a mat on the floor. You may lie on your side or stomach at times and you might also be asked to do some deep breathing exercises as your therapist works to release any tension in your body.
The massage therapist will use their hands, thumbs, elbows, and feet to apply deep pressure to specific points on the body, performing assisted yoga-like stretches to help release tension in the muscles and improve flexibility. You should expect some discomfort, but you should not feel pain. If you do, tell your therapist immediately.

It’s important to note that a Royal Thai Massage is not a substitute for medical treatment. It’s always best to consult with your doctor before trying any new form of therapy, especially if you have a medical condition.
After The Massage
For the final touch after your Royal Thai Massage, we offer herbal tea and water so that you’re fully relaxed, hydrated, and ready to go back to your activities.
Massages, in general, promote detoxification, boost circulation, and provide an overall sense of relaxation. Depending on the type of massage you receive, you may even feel some soreness and tenderness, which is completely normal a few days after the massage. Be sure to always follow any instructions or advice provided by your massage therapist.
After a Royal Thai massage, it is recommended to drink plenty of water and take some time to rest and allow the body to fully integrate the benefits of the treatment.
Here are a few things you can do to maximise the benefits of your massage:
- Stay hydrated.
- Rest for at least 24 hours so your muscles have time to repair. If you have to stay on the go, be sure to take it easy and avoid any over-exertion.
- Do some light stretching.
- If you’re sore, you can take a cold shower or a warm bath with Epsom salts. Avoid hot water as that can increase inflammation.
- Have a light snack and skip heavy meals.
- Plan ahead so you can focus on relaxing for the rest of the day.
- Listen to your body. If you experience any severe discomfort or pain after the massage, contact your massage therapist or healthcare provider.
