Northern Thai Massage Part 1 Supine
This fully clothed therapy is performed on a floor mat. The therapist and the receiver should wear comfortable, loose fitting clothes such as a cotton t-shirt and light sweat pants or yoga pants. You will be instructed on various techniques involving the use of your hands, arms, elbows, knees and feet to perform core leaning pressure, reflexology acupressure, assisted progressive stretching and some yoga postures and breath work to allow the energy lines (Sen lines and Nadis) to open, flow and balance. This type of massage has often been referred to as "lazy person's yoga" as the receiver experiences the benefits of yoga through assisted postures. This rhythmic and meditative therapy allows one to enter into a state of deep relaxation as well as allowing any imbalance of energy to flow through and out of the body. Most of the attention is focused on the legs. Other areas include feet, abdominal work, arms & hands, face, neck and shoulders. Benefits for your client: Increased flexibility, increased energy flow and circulation, relaxing nerve constriction, lymph stimulation, improve structural balance and to facilitate the release of emotional pain or blocked energy.
