Thai Massage

 
Thai massage consists of rhythmic compression with gentle rocking, deep stretching and joint mobilization. Sessions are very relaxing. Work is done from the feet to the head giving you a full body therapeutic massage experience. Thai Massage is an effective technique for treating a wide range of conditions. Practitioners have easy access to the body while working in various positions using body weight as leverage. Thai Massage is performed on the floor on a mat. The recipient wears loose, comfortable clothing. It is unique in that it works on the muscular/skeletal system as well as the energetic* body. (*Work is done along the Sen lines, which are similar to the meridian lines known in the more familiar practice of Chinese medicine). People often report feeling light and energized after a session as well as increased ability to move their bodies freely. Chris is proponent of the body support cushion he uses in his Thai massage sessions. The cushion gives fantastic support for the head neck and chest while clients lay belly down. It is also very useful while working on pregnant women.
