Developed in Thailand centuries ago, Thai massage combines deep tissue compressions, trigger point therapy, joint mobilization, and passive stretching techniques.
Commonly referred to as “Lazy Man’s Yoga”, it’s performed on a soft mat and has greater movement patterns than regular table massage.
Practitioners are able to get access to body areas that are hard to access with traditional table massage. Side-lying positions are used to work on hips and shoulders as well as the deeper layers of muscles along the spine.
Who is Thai massage good for?
– Anyone trying to gain greater range of motion in their muscles and joints.
– Athletes find Thai massage extremely helpful to maintain good range of motion in their hip, spine, and shoulder joints and muscles.
– Anyone stuck in a seated position for too long would love Thai Massage as it helps to stretch open the body in a gentle way.
We find that the effects of Thai massage are long lasting because it affects the joints and addresses movement patterns instead of just isolating separate muscles.
What to expect
A combination of gentle point pressure, a wide variety of yoga-like stretching, and passive joint movements, applied very slowly with gentle rocking and rhythmic compressions along your body’s natural energy lines called the Sen lines.
How to prepare
The session is performed with client fully clothed on a thick Thai massage mat on the floor. Please wear comfortable clothing that will allow for a full range of motion.
