23 Jan Physical Technique Of Thai Massage Practitioner
Thai massage is different to Western massage in the way that the Thai therapist utilises her body weight to perform the maneuvers. The massage practitioner leans on the recipient’s body using hands and usually straight forearms locked at the elbow to apply firm pressure. In other positions, the therapist may use her feet to apply pressure to the pressure points of the body. There is a standard procedure and rhythm to the massage, which the practitioner will adjust to fit each individual.
You may be positioned in a variety of yoga-like positions during the course of the massage, but deep static and rhythmic pressures form the core of the treatment.
