“The body is precious. It is our vehicle for awakening. Treat it with care.” -Buddha
Thai Bodywork is rooted in the fundamental practices of traditional Thai massage flow infused with passive and active stretching and trigger point therapy for a whole-body treatment.
Traditional Thai massage is an ancient healing system where a practitioner uses broad as well as targeted compression techniques to move a client's body into yoga like postures for stretching & healing purposes. Unlike traditional massage, Thai massage rarely uses oils or lotions, and the recipient remains fully clothed during a treatment.
Trigger point therapy refers to locating stagnant points within muscle tissue and applying adequate pressure to these points during movement. This process combined with passive and active stretching of the muscle allows retraining of the neuromuscular system and rehabilitation of the body.
The overall effects are rejuvenation and pain reduction through restoration of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems.
