A session of (osteo-) thai massage begins with a short introduction about the massage itself and the sharing of the general health conditions of the client at this very moment.
Dressed in light and stretchy clothes the client lies down comfortably on a mat or futon on the floor. A session usually lasts between 60 to 90 minutes.
The therapist uses his palms, fingers, elbows, knees, feet using his body weight and applying rhythmical pressure on the body.
The movements can vary from more dynamic, gentle rocking, pulsing and clapping to very still, hands on work, using different techniques of acupressure, thumbing, twisting and yogic stretches of Thai massage and Osteopathy’s release of tissue tension and work on restriction of mobility.
