“The body is precious. It is our vehicle for awakening. Treat it with care.” -Buddha
Thai Bodywork is highly effect in pain reduction and overall relaxation. The approach is rooted in the fundamental practices of traditional Thai massage flow, infused 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. It is often referred to as "Lazy Man's Yoga." 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 trigger points within a muscle and deactivating them by applying pressure to these points during movement. This process combined with passive and active stretching of the muscle allows the practitioner to rehabilitate the body.
Understanding how muscles function, pain referral patterns, and which Thai Massage and specific trigger point techniques are most useful to treating specific ailments, is what makes Bodywork most effective. The overall effects are rejuvenation, pain reduction, and restoration of the body's ability to move smoothly and freely through general ranges of motion.
Bodywork can be done as Sports Massage for specific muscle relief from highly overworked muscles and joints due to the wear and tear of repetitive movement patterns. Through a deep understanding of body mechanics and pain referral patterns, I use bodywork techniques to retrain the musculoskeletal system on a neurological level.
