The Traditional Thai Massage is a therapeutic massage which helps to re-balance the whole body. Pranic Healing restores the energy-balance for better mind and emotions. Nor least improvement of your body's chakras function-related.

This treatment is the one that covers the whole aspects for having a greater healthy life style.
What is Pranic Healing:
Pranic Healing is a science and art that works in the life energy system, basically in the little sparks that are keeping our cells together and alive. Energy is not a new age, magical, and out-of-reach concept. It is so blended with our life. Life-force, Chi, or Prana, in fact, is the 4th state of matter after solid, liquid, and gas. It is so physical and so ordinary that we often take it for granted. Energy is just more refined than what we already know about the physical matters. Its subtle nature makes energy intangible for the ordinary senses. However, there are many people with a more sensitive nature that can feel, see, and experience the existence of energy. For sensitive eyes, it looks like a luminous field of light, surrounding the physical body and inter penetrating.
Based on the Law of Correspondence, what affects this energy field, affects the physical body too; that is also how dirty energies, thoughts, and emotions develop into poor physical health. You may also have heard so many times about 80% of diseases being psychosomatic, and the rationale behind this fact is the existence of the energy body and the energy centres, also known as the chakras. The chakras, basically, are responsible for the proper functioning of the vital, internal organs. They receive energy from the surroundings and expel the used-up energy back into the surrounding. So when the chakras start malfunctioning because of contamination or obstruction in the flow of energy, and accumulation of negative thoughts and emotions, they adversely affect the organs under their control. In the long run, we end up having a disease. Chakras also have psychological functions, which shapes our character. Over activation or under activation of the chakras lead to development of various characteristics and behaviour patterns. Changing the sizes of the chakras and disintegrating the poisonous thoughts and emotions from our system, therefore, can affect how we think, feel, and act. When the energy changes, people will change; their attitude towards life will change, even their degree of success and creativity will change. This is how Pranic Healing can affect our whole life and the way we deal with daily challenges. Pranic Healing is not only for the sick, but for everyone, even for the people who are already healthy and successful as it provides a scientific approach that enables us to gain control over our life
