Thai For Table
As many of you may know, Thai massage is a 2,500 year ago body manipulation technique with origins coming from Indian traditions associated with yoga and ayurvedic principles. It is typically done on a mat on the floor allowing the therapist full use of his/her own body weight and also allowing maximum flexibility for the patient/client. However, this amazing modality can also be done on the table quite as easily utilizing many of the same forms and delivery. It can feel like a combination of intense stretching, acupressure, yoga, deep compression and shiatsu. It has excellent benefits for the entire body and greatly aides enhanced flexibility and circulation.
Other benefits of this highly engaging technique include:
-increased range of motion
-decrease in muscle pain and particularly muscle spasms
-improves postural alignment by elongating the muscles
-allows for significant release of deep muscle tension and emotional tension
-stimulates organs more then traditional massage
-helps to decongest swollen limbs, painful joints and inflammation
-energizes and relieves fatigue from muscle tension
Thai for the table will leave you feeling invigorated from deep, yet safe stretching and can also be a great ‘shock to one’s system’ so to speak, simply by positioning the body in new and unpredictable ways.
