Thai Bodywork is a combination of massage, Acupressure, energy meridian work and Yoga-like stretching. Most people are familiar with “massage,” which involves working on the body’s musculature with compression and manual manipulation. Thai Bodywork gives the benefits of massage, yoga, and energy work in one nurturing dance. It is an ancient healing art form practiced in Thailand. Traditionally given on a floor mat with clients fully clothed, Thai bodywork is a whole-body treatment. It combines passive stretching and movement of joints with several touch techniques and work along energy meridians (called sen in Thai). The whole treatment is a graceful, nurturing, interactive dance that is sensitive to the condition of each person. The effect of Thai Massage is greater flexibility, flow of energy, deep relaxation, and feeling of well being. The art of Thai bodywork achieves a deep therapeutic effect without harsh physical force through efficient use of movement, conscious touch, breathing and rhythm. Since it is given on a floor mat with the client fully clothed, practitioners can use their whole body in leverage and interactive work as they move and rock the client into various positions, apply rhythmic touch as well as some cross-fiber stroking of muscle and tendons. The treatment can be vigorous or gentle depending on the need or preference of the client. Always respectful and caring, it is adjustable to suit most clients, young or not-so-young, athlete or spectator. You do not have to already be flexible to get and enjoy Thai Bodywork. And it does not have to hurt.
