Butterfly massage is a blending of traditional Chinese and Thai massage techniques, with a strong Ayurvedic influence. The therapist will position the patient in yoga-like poses to aid in the effectiveness of the massage. It is very rigorous and energetic, much more so than most other forms of massage therapy. Butterfly massage involves the use of essential oils.
How can Butterfly massage help me?
Some patients have likened a butterfly massage session to ‘yoga, but without the effort’. It is an excellent way to develop your posture and balance, stretch your muscles, and is known to improve blood and lymphatic circulation as well as improve the function of many of the body’s internal organs. It can be used to treat stress and poor circulation, lethargy or lack of energy and stiffness or poor range of motion. Like yoga, butterfly massage can help centre the mind and balance the body’s natural energies.
Butterfly massage is very physical and energetic, so talk to your doctor before making an appointment if you have recently had surgery, are prone to blood clots, or are pregnant.
