Traditional Thai Massage in Portland, Oregon.
Here at Portland Massage Arts, we care deeply about the health and well-being of all our clientele, new and returning. One of the massage techniques that we are excited to share with you is traditional Thai massage. Thai massage is a branch of traditional Thai medicine that has been incorporated in preventive medicine in Thailand for many thousands of years.

How Does Thai Massage Work?
The word “massage” misses the mark a bit as this technique is more like a wide range of physical therapy tools that we use to bring you to a state of improved wellness.

We will invite you to lay on a mat on the floor where you will stay clothed. We recommend wearing loose, stretchy clothing that is comfortable.
We use our thumbs, arms, hands, elbows, knees, and even our feet according to what is most effective to place pressure on your body and help you passively stretch. We will apply our body weight to certain parts of your body to achieve the desired effects.
