Full Body Thai Massage Edinburgh

Full Body Thai Massage 

The most popular massage at Harmony Thai Massage and Wellness is a full body Thai massage. This is the same for both our Edinburgh City Centre and Dumfries massage salons. 

During a full body Thai massage, the massage therapist uses their hands, elbows, knees, and feet to apply pressure to various points on the body, while also guiding you through a series of yoga like stretches.


The massage is designed to stimulate blood flow, release tension in muscles, and promote overall relaxation and well being. It's often sought after for its ability to relieve stress, alleviate muscle stiffness, and improve flexibility.


If you're considering getting a full body Thai massage, be sure to communicate any specific areas of tension or discomfort with your massage therapist beforehand so we can tailor the session to your needs. You need at least a 60 minute booking for an effective full body Thai massage, with 90 minute and 120 minute options also available to provide maximum benefits.

John, Edinburgh, Full Body Thai Massage 5 Star Review

"Fantastic traditional Thai massage, I've been to a few different Thai massage salons in Edinburgh, most are very good but the massage at Harmony Thai Massage and Wellness stood out as it was targeted on my problem area (at the time!) and Melanie used a few techniques where unique and really worked. I do quite a lot of intense exercise, mainly weightlifting so I need regular massage to try and keep my joints and muscles loose. I had an issue with my back before my massage after a minor injury from deadlifting. The massage provided relief and I was back training the next day. Great location as well for parking, with a car park to avoid the vigilant Edinburgh traffic wardens! Highly recommend for active people and anyone look to relax."

Thai Back Massage Edinburgh

Back, Neck and Shoulder Thai Massage 

Thai back, neck, and shoulder massage is a traditional therapeutic technique that originates from Thailand. It focuses on relieving tension and promoting relaxation in the upper body. During the massage, your massage therapist will use a combination of techniques including deep tissue massage, acupressure, and stretching to target specific areas of tension and tightness in the back, neck, and shoulders.

Our skilled Thai massage therapists will also use their elbows, knees, and feet to apply pressure and manipulate your muscles in your back, neck and shoulder areas to allow for maximum effect and benefits.

The benefits of a Thai back, neck, and shoulder massage can include reduced muscle stiffness and soreness, improved circulation, increased flexibility, and a sense of deep relaxation. It can be particularly beneficial for individuals who experience tension or pain in these areas due to poor posture, stress, or sedentary lifestyle from office work.

A hard pressure Thai massage, is also often referred to as simply a strong Thai massage. It's when a massage technique that applies more intense pressure to target the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues. This type of massage aims to release chronic tension, knots, and adhesions in the muscles, providing relief from muscle stiffness, pain, and tightness.

Here are some key points about a hard pressure Thai massage:

  1. Deep Pressure: The therapist uses firm and deep strokes, applying strong pressure to reach the underlying muscles and tissues.

  2. Targeted Areas: The massage therapist focuses on specific areas of tension or pain, such as the shoulders, neck, back, or legs, to provide targeted relief.

  3. Stretching and Manipulation: Along with deep pressure, traditional Thai stretching techniques may be incorporated to further release tension and improve flexibility.

  4. Pain Relief: A hard pressure Thai massage can help alleviate chronic pain, muscle soreness, and stiffness by improving blood circulation and releasing built-up tension.

  5. Benefits: The benefits of a hard pressure Thai massage include improved muscle flexibility, reduced muscle tension, enhanced relaxation, and relief from chronic pain and stiffness.

It's important to communicate with your massage therapist about your comfort level and any specific areas you want them to focus on. While a hard pressure Thai massage can be highly effective for relieving muscle tension and pain, it may not be suitable for everyone, especially those with certain medical conditions or injuries. Always consult with a healthcare provider before getting a deep tissue massage if you have underlying health concerns.

Deep Tissue Thai Massage Edinburgh

Deep Tissue Thai Massage 

Deep tissue massage combines the therapeutic techniques of traditional Thai massage with deeper pressure targeting the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. It's particularly beneficial for those who prefer a more intense massage experience or who have chronic tension or tightness in specific areas of the body.

Here's what you can expect from a deep tissue Thai massage:

  1. Focused Pressure: The therapist will use their hands, thumbs, elbows, or feet to apply firm pressure to specific areas of tension or discomfort. This focused pressure helps to release knots and adhesions in the muscles and fascia.

  2. Stretching: Deep tissue Thai massage incorporates passive stretching techniques similar to traditional Thai massage. These stretches help to improve flexibility, relieve muscle tension, and enhance overall mobility.

  3. Breathing: Proper breathing techniques are often emphasised during deep tissue Thai massage to help clients relax and facilitate the release of tension. Deep, rhythmic breathing can enhance the effectiveness of the massage and promote a deeper sense of relaxation.

  4. Pain Relief: Deep tissue Thai massage can provide relief from chronic pain conditions such as back pain, neck pain, and tight muscles. By targeting deeper layers of tissue, it can help alleviate discomfort and improve overall well-being.

  5. Increased Circulation: The firm pressure applied during deep tissue Thai massage can stimulate blood flow to the muscles, promoting healing and reducing inflammation. Improved circulation can also help flush out toxins and waste products from the body.

  6. Customisation: Like traditional Thai massage, deep tissue Thai massage can be tailored to meet the individual needs and preferences of the client. The therapist will adjust the pressure and intensity of the massage based on your comfort level and areas of concern.

Overall, deep tissue Thai massage offers a therapeutic and rejuvenating experience that addresses both physical and emotional aspects of well-being. It can be particularly beneficial for those seeking relief from chronic pain, tension, or restricted mobility. However, it's important to communicate with your therapist throughout the session to ensure that the pressure is appropriate and comfortable for you.

History of Thai Massage

History of Thai Massage

Thai massage, also known as Thai yoga massage or Nuad Boran, has a rich and ancient history that dates back over 2,500 years. Its origins can be traced to the time of the Buddha in India. The founder of Thai massage is believed to be Shivago Komarpaj, a physician to the Buddha and renowned healer.

Over time, Thai massage evolved as a combination of influences from Indian Ayurvedic medicine, Chinese traditional medicine, and indigenous Thai healing practices. It incorporates elements of yoga, acupressure, and passive stretching techniques.

Traditionally, Thai massage was practiced by monks as a form of spiritual healing and meditation. It was passed down through generations within families and monastic communities.

In the West, Thai massage gained popularity in the 20th century, particularly during the 1980s and 1990s. It was introduced to a broader audience as a therapeutic and relaxation technique. Today, Thai massage is practiced worldwide and is renowned for its effectiveness in relieving muscle tension, promoting relaxation, and improving overall well-being.

Throughout its history, Thai massage has retained its holistic approach, focusing on the interconnectedness of the body, mind, and spirit. It continues to be celebrated for its ability to balance energy, alleviate physical discomfort, and promote a sense of harmony and vitality.
