During Thai massage, the client lies on a mat while the massage therapist stretches their limbs and back, and targets pain with deep pressure. The therapist executes the strokes with their fingers, thumbs, elbows, arms, and even their feet. The result is a combination of massage, acupressure, energy work, and gentle yoga stretches that releases tight joints, reduces stress, and may combat ailments such as arthritis and high blood pressure. For the Swedish couples massage, twosomes lie down in the same private room as two therapists induce relaxation through gentle, continuous strokes.
Voilà La Familia
Paule-Dominique Anneheim, a certified massage therapist and owner of Voilà La Familia, eases muscle pain with techniques customized to the needs of men, women, and infants. Since she was 17 years old and living in Marseille, Paule-Dominique has been working with both healthy and disabled youngsters. She went on to become a children’s massage instructor and expert on wooden-block ergonomics before moving to Tahiti to help open a clinic. The experienced massage therapist now brings gentle kneads and Swedish massage techniques to bear against tension and pain in private rooms speckled with colorful orchids. Oil infused with vitamin E steeps skin in moisture and prevents stretch marks, and the therapist's expertise in pediatric, prenatal, and postpartum massage allows her to soothe mothers stressed by pregnancy and little ones stressed by investigations into what the cow says.
