What to expect and what to wear
This form of massage therapy incorporates assisted yoga-like movements and stretches while the massage therapist applies direct pressure to your muscles. The receiver should ideally wear lose clothing of natural fibres (if possible) and will lay on a mat. Not only will a typical massage session include techniques with you lying on your back and stomach, but also with you lying on your sides and sitting on the mat.
This treatment is both relaxing and energising and is modified specifically to meet your body's needs and capacities. The massage typically starts with gentle rocking and rhythmic compression to prepare your body for the yoga-like stretches and deeper pressure. Although this massage is a very physical massage, with all the stretching and direct pressure, the Thai therapist is actually using the theory of sen (energy lines) to promote the flow of energy through your body by using the assisted yoga poses to open your joints and direct pressure to release muscle tension.
Therapists use their hands, forearms, knees, elbows and feet to move your joints through their ranges of motion, stretch your muscles and apply pressure directly to your muscles to help you achieve shifts in body alignment to create the conditions for healing and balance to emerge.
A heated herbal compress is also used to apply heat, healing herbal properties and pressure.
After your treatment you will be given your herbal compress to take home. This can be re-steamed and used on any areas of tension and then used as a bath infusion which will further enhance your treatment. The compress should be refrigerated until use and used within 48 hours.
