Montra Traditional Thai Massage
Buddha is usually depicted sitting down, but at the Wat Po temple in Bangkok, reclining Buddha stretches his gilded, 141-foot frame across a tiered base. It’s a fitting image for a temple often recognized as the birthplace of traditional Thai massage, which is also the place where all of Montra’s therapists have been trained. The therapists bring with them not just technique, but also an Eastern philosophy that reveres massage for its ability to treat both physical and mental stresses. During sessions, practitioners hold their clients' limbs in passive stretching positions and use gentle pressure along the bodies’ energy channels to dissolve tension and get the signal "Stop kicking people" from brains to feet. Variations of the treatment might introduce herbal compresses that soothe nerves and massage tender areas more gently, or reflexology, which activates pressure points on the feet believed to stimulate organs in other parts of the body.
