Hi, I’m Ernest. I’m the owner and practitioner of 'Sacred Thai Massage' based in Dumfriesshire, Scotland, UK. I bring authentic Thai massage to you in your own home. The benefits are numerous which is why home massage is becoming increasingly sought after. Instead of jumping into a car after a massage and potentially undoing the good work, you get to enjoy instant relaxation, without having to go to a luxury spa to do so.
SACRED THAI MASSAGE
Traditional Thai Massage (Watpo style) forms the starting base for my work.
Typically done on the floor on a futon, without oil, and with the client wearing light comfortable clothing. Compression and stretches for energy flow and relaxation.
Thai Medical Massage is also in my toolbox when needed. This enables me to target specific pressure points along the sen to help ease specific complaints. These techniques can feel stronger and more intense.
Thai Foot Massage is a stand-alone 1-hour massage on the feet and lower legs. I use cream for this massage, and massage stick on the reflex points of the feet.
“I first experienced foot massage myself in a temple in Bangkok, where feet are respected, and foot massage is
seen as a sacred practice. This is the energy and intention I bring to each session.” Ernest Bryden
Thai Rocking Massage is another system I learnt that adds value to sessions.
We instinctively rock babies because it comforts them. As children we love to swing. We never really lose that need as adults.
The body responds well to rocking techniques. Rocking can include rocking, pulsing, swinging, rotating, circling, wiggling.
Rocking allows me to do Thai massage on everyone, super tight, locked up athletes, very stiff, elderly people, pain sensitive people. Rocking works in a beautiful and elegant flowing way, combined with Thai massage.
Traditional Thai Massage (Northern Style) from Chiang Mai, added a new repertoire of techniques, and has also, thanks to the Boonthumme family, saved my hands, and increased my sensitivity substantially, benefiting clients greatly.
Tok Sen Massage using special wooden tools, is a deep vibration therapy, very specific to the Lanna Kingdom (north Thailand), and I'm honoured to offer this authentic massage to clients. ‘Tok tok’, is the rhythmic sound of tapping, and Sen, the energy lines throughout our bodies. I use Tok Sen in combination with Traditional Thai massage. A gentle but powerful therapy to restore energy flow. Said to help with headaches, scar tissue, circulation, muscular tension, eliminating stress, and calming the nerves.
“Tok Sen is the most relaxing massage I’ve experienced. Hypnotic and soothing, it’s a truly deep tissue massage.”
The whole purpose of Thai medicine is to improve and correct energy flow in the body.
