Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions. The client wears loose clothing or a uniform that is provided for comfort in moving during treatment on the floor mattress. There is constant body contact between the therapist and client during the session of passive stretching and pressure which encourages deep relaxation and increased flexibility. The massage therapist uses thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, knees and feet to compress, pull, stretch and rock energy lines and points. The client just needs to relax and may even fall asleep during the process.
- With Thai Massage, joints are opened, tendons are stretched, tense muscles are released, internal organs are toned, and energy is balanced. The overall effect is one of deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and a feeling of physical and mental well-being.
