What Techniques are used with Thai Massage?
During the massage, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched, and rocked to clear energy blockages and relieve tension. The practitioner uses thumbs, palms, forearms, elbows, knees, and feet to create a dance of movement on the body. In this process, joints are opened, muscles and tendons are stretched, internal organs are toned, and energy is balanced.
