What Is Authentic Traditional Thai Massage Therapy?

Traditional Thai Massage is often referred to as Thai Yoga Massage, and has just arrived in West Yorkshire. It is a from of bodywork that is done on a futon on the floor with the client dressed in light clothes. It works on freeing the flow of vital energy in your body. You will be taken through a series of gentle movement, acupressure, breathing, flexibility, digestion and circulation, your muscles get stretched and your inner organs toned and emotional nervous tension drops away. Often a deep sense of quiet can be experienced during and after treatment.

About Rosa Thai Therapy

Rosa Thai Massage Salons are a collection of independently owned companies that come together under the famous “ Rosa Thai “ brand and act as agents for therapists provided their services to you. Thai Massage focuses on the circulation of vital energy in major pathways called sen. The major energy lines are manipulated, and important pressure points along these pathways are stimulated to help break down blockages, stimulate energy flow and restore balance.

The word “Massage” does not mean the same thing as it is understood in the typical western usage. In the west “Massage” means a “rub down” and refers to techniques derived from Swedish Massage and regular Massage therapy.  “Thai Massage” (Phaen Boran Ráksãa Thaang Nûat) is completely different! It is a healing art of the Theraveda Buddhism and Buddhist medicine. With Rosa Traditional Thai Massage in Leeds, no oils or lotions are used, and the recipient remains clothed during a treatment.

There is constant body contact between the practitioner and client, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched, and rocked in order to clear energy blockages and relieve tension. Rosa uses thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, knees, and feet to create a dance of movement on the body of the recipient.

Rosa Traditional Thai Massage is done on a mat instead of a table. This allows Rosa to get the necessary body leverage needed for the stretches and Yoga-like positions used in Thai Massage.


The client wears lose clothing or sports shorts allowing for a series of yoga like stretches to take place. Rosa or one of her highly trained therapists will consult with the client and ensures that the client is at all times comfortable. The therapist will always take into consideration the clients physical limitations. Many clients are surprised and delighted at what they can achieve from just one session of authentic thai Massage.
