Let’s start by clarifying that Thai Oil Massage and Aromatherapy are two distinct different therapies.
Thai hot oil massage combines the essence of ancient healing practices with the soothing touch of heated oils, providing a unique and deeply relaxing experience.
What is Thai Oil Massage?
Drawing from the roots of traditional Thai massage, this technique intertwines the therapeutic benefits of traditional Thai massage methods with the comforting warmth of heated oils. It seamlessly blends smooth acupressure with the application of warm oils to the body.
Benefits of Thai Hot Oil Massage:

– Stress Reduction: Induces a profound state of relaxation, reducing stress and anxiety levels, fostering a sense of tranquility and balance.

A Thai Traditional Oil massage is, like a Traditional Thai Massage (without oils), based on the concepts of traditional Thai healing bodywork, that is—working, opening, and stimulating the so-called Energy Lines, also called the Sip Sen or Sen Lines.
Thai oil massage uses natural oils (sometimes with the addition of essential oils).
