“I began training with
Paola Di Lanzo Pilates & Fitness six years ago when I was playing a lot of polo. Initially, I decided to take pilates lessons as my lower back was tight and inflexible. After just a few weeks training twice a week, not only did my flexibility increase greatly but so did my core strength and performance playing polo. I have since retired from polo however I continue to train with Paola so as to maintain my fitness, flexibility and core strength.”

Massage

Thai massage is a type of massage in Thai style that involves stretching and deep massage. It’s usually performed on the floor and the client will wear comfortable clothing that allows for movement. It is known in Thailand as “nuat phaen boran” literally, the ancient-manner massage. The pressing techniques of Thai massage prepare muscles for stretching by increasing their permeability to the flow of Sen energies. The manipulations are designed to stretch the muscles a little more than would be possible unaided. Various techniques to stretch the muscles are then performed.

Even advanced yoga cannot compete with the stretching capabilities of Thai massage when applied by an expert. 

Tension and spasm in a muscle are the result of a vicious circle of events involving the muscle and its sense organs; those muscles that are antagonistic to it and the brain. 

Regular Thai massages with our highly trained therapists will help stretch your muscles back to their normal resting length, which deceives the brain into ‘thinking’ that all is well and it stops inhibiting the antagonists. Before long, tension disappears and joint mobility is restored!
