This type of massage is done fully clothed. The massage therapist uses body weight, while appling acupressure with fingers, thumbs, hands, knees, legs and feet, with stretching exercises. Thai massage is enganged with both the giver and the receiver. The treatment is done on the floor mat.
The aim is for the receiver to attain harmonious energy throughout the body. This is achieved through the use of acupressure and gentle muscle compressions along sen/meridian lines, which unblocks the flow of energy and restores balance to the body, increase circulation of blood flow and eliminate the toxins that cause pain and illness to the body.
Thai Massage is excellent for athlete's, yogis, or people who don't work out much and want to remove stagnant energy from the body and want to feel energized without much exercise. Thai Massage allows the client's body to be passive during stretches, loosen muscles, open joints and move energy that even the most physically active people can't do without assistance.
