What is Thai Massage?
Thai massage is a whole body technique that can increase the flow of energy through the body by releasing tension and energy blockages. It originated from Eastern healing traditions intended to connect the mind, body and spirit.  The technique combines gentle stretches, breathing practices, acupressure and soothing rocking.  With a slow, flowing and meditative approach, the practitioner assists a fully clothed recipient into a series of yoga-inspired postures, creating a delightfully harmonious and therapeutic “dance”.

 

Why Thai Massage?
Thai massage works with the muscles, bones and joints, improving circulation and increasing flexibility and range of motion.  It reduces the effects of tension by lowering the heart rate, relieving muscle tightness, slowing the breathe and initiation the relaxation response which calms both body and mind.  Thai massage is said to open up energy channels called ‘sen’, similar to those in acupuncture.  When sen are blocked, you may experience fatigue, pain or even disease. 

 

Thai massage helps increase awareness of your body, which often results in easier movement, improved posture and even injury prevention.  Because it can release muscles deep in the body, it is often effective in reducing neck and shoulder pain, headaches and low back pain.  It is used to support athletes preparing for and recovering from sporting events, and help patients recover faster from surgery.  Recipients have reported reduced discomfort from arthritis, menstrual cramps, insomnia, digestive difficulties, chronic fatigue syndrome, and fibromyalgia.  Benefits tend to multiply with regular treatments. 

 

What is a session like?  

For Thai Yoga massage, you will be gently moved or rocked into various positions, so wear flexible comfortable clothing.  Thai massage is generally performed on a floor mat, although you may receive on a table.  Bolsters or blankets may be used to support you in areas of less flexibility.  Though Thai massage does not require the use of oils or lotions, it may be combined with other types of massage where oil is used. 

 The practitioner will begin with a slow rhythmic and gentle tough, and depending on what feels best to you, will adjust the pressure to be more or less firm and vigorous. Pressure is applied with the thumb, finger, palm, elbow, foot or knee to specific lines of energy.  You might be asked to breathe deeply to help you ease into the stretches. 

Many recipients enjoy an alert state that feels meditative and peaceful.  Some feel deeply relaxed, even drifting towards sleep.  During the first session, you may be amazed at how wonderful the gentle stretches feel.  It is possible you will be able to move in ways that are difficult to attain on your own.  You may learn things about your body such as becoming aware of problem areas you have “tuned out”, or finding your flexibility varies considerably from one area to another.

After a session, recipients sometimes feel drowsy and wish to rest, while others feel invigorated, balanced and flexible for even taller.

For your Comfort……..

We may begin your session by working with you to find your present level of flexibility and restrictions in movement.  Inform me of your state of health so we can adjust your massage for any special limitations or conditions.  For certain conditions or if you are receiving medical, your practitioner may advise you to check with your physician before receiving a Thai Yoga massage.  It is important to give feedback regarding your sales and discomfort.
