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.
A 'SACRED THAI MASSAGE' Session may include some of the following elements...
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 help energy flow and relaxation.
Thai Medical Massage enables me to target specific pressure points along the sen (energy lines) to help ease more 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 incredibly relaxing.
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.
Lanna Thai Massage (Traditional Northern Style) taught by the best masters from Chiang Mai, advanced techniques, and sensitivity, 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. 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.” Ernest Bryden
Pa Kao Mah using a traditional cloth material to stretch and loosen the joints and muscles, very relaxing and effective.
(The whole purpose of Thai medicine is to improve and correct energy flow in the body.)
