This type of massage in terms of techniques is similar to classic Thai massage but is definitely stronger. Even though it is stronger, it is still equally pleasant and relaxing.
Thai sports massage is also known as a dynamic version of a massage with essential oils massage that removes tiredness. It is a more intense version of this oriental technique, which is caused by the need to warm up the muscles.
The purpose of the massage in the sports version is to warm up the muscles and joints before exercise and regenerate them right after training.
This massage is a form of wellness-based rejuvenation therapy preparing the joint and muscle system for effort and eliminating tiredness resulting from intense physical effort. A sports massage before exercise stimulates our blood circulation, warms up the tissues and calms the nervous tension and prepares our body for maximum performance. Massage directly after physical exercise eliminates muscle pain, relieves stress and soothes swelling. Massage accelerates the absorption of lactic acid by the body, removes metabolic products acidifying the muscles during increased effort. Regular Thai massage reduces the tension of our muscles, improves flexibility and reduces the risk of injury. Massage has medicinal properties in the next stage of sports injury treatment. Thai sports massage boosts the regenerative processes of the body and relaxes the occurring stiffening of the muscles.
For the massage we use aromatic oils with regenerating and relaxing properties. This technique is known for its relaxing properties.
We use only natural, certified cosmetics such as massage oils, body butters, Ayurvedic oils from Khadi Naturprodukte and the essential oils of the highest quality from Young Living.
All our massage rooms are equipped with professional equipment, a comfortable mattress for Thai massage, on which it will be pleasant to rest after the effort. Each client will be provided with special clothes for the time of the massage. A masseuse from Thailand will relax the body by doing movements using her forearm. This massage uses the technique of “eights” with the optimal adjustment of pressure to the tension of the body. After the massage, you can take a pleasant shower. Sports massage is ideal for people who are active every day. If you have different preferences and you are looking for a less intense form of massage, we recommend traditional Thai massage.

What is the best time for a sports massage?
Depending on the sports activity, we recommend a “starter” sports massage, which perfectly prepares the body for physical exercise. Sports massage with regenerative properties is an “inter-exercise” massage, given in the intervals between the physical activity. Its purpose is to maintain high physical activity in a specific time interval. After the “post-exercise” (training) massage, the duration of the regeneration of body period after a long and intense physical activity is shortened. “Complementary” sports massage also known as the conditional massage is meant to support sports training. Full-body sports massage should be given during the entire training-starter cycle, during the waiting period for the competition, during the transition period as well as during the convalescence period.
Thai sports massage is great for both body and soul.
