What to expect from a Thai massage treatment
Traditional Northern Style Thai massage is a type of bodywork that involves stretching and deep massage. This form of therapy is usually performed on the floor, and the client wears comfortable clothes that allow for movement. No oils are used in Thai massage.
Beginning with simple movements until flexibility allows for more intensive stretching, our licensed massage therapist gently guides the client through a progression of assisted yoga poses or asanas. Thai massage incorporates Trigger Point, myofascial and reflexology techniques that are often used with western massage therapy.
For some, Thai massage can be more energizing, uplifting and rigorous than more classic forms of massage. For others, it presents a relaxing experience as their tension is released. At times during the treatment, the therapist may communicate with the client to find a comfortable level of pressure or stretch.
Live Better Holistics provides the necessary supplies, i.e., mat, pillow and music. If you prefer your own relaxing music selection, that is welcomed also.
