What is Thai Massage?
Thai Massage is not like any bodywork you have experienced. It is a continuous palm, foot and thumb flowing, stretching dance the Practitioner has with the Client’s body. Some call it Yoga Assisted Bodywork. Needless to say, the body gets stretched. But it also gets palmed (by the hands) along energy channels that run throughout the body and pressed with the feet. And more specifically thumbed with the thumb pads along those major pathways within the body with attention to some pressure points!
The moving lom/qi/chi/prana flush debris through the Receiving Person’s Body. The Person may feel tension release or loosening in the muscle or and opening within a joint. Circulation in the body increases. The sensation is like none other!
