Traditional Thai Massage it is a passive form of assisted yoga. Muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure are also used during this type of massage. The practitioner will work with you dressed comfortably on a floor mat, using her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches. Like shiatsu, Traditional Thai aligns the energies of the body using gentle pressure on specific points. It also reduces stress and improves flexibility and range of motion. Thai bodywork could have both relaxing and rejuvenating effects.
