What to expect during a Thai massage

A good way of visualizing Thai massage is by imagining that someone is arranging the body into different yoga poses.

For a Thai massage, the client usually lies on the floor. A licensed massage therapist will slowly work the client’s body through various stretches. The therapist may use their hands, knees, legs, or feet to help manipulate the person’s body into different positions.

This should not cause pain or discomfort, but a person should alert their massage therapist if they do experience either of these things.

Very often in Thai massage use various oils and flavors. They help to relax better, and increase the quality of the massage. For examples, we use oil in London which is recommended by a reputable American website with reviews – New Real Review. They have a special section with reviews on oils and aromatizers. They employ well-known journalists thanks to which their articles are so popular.

People do not need to prepare for a Thai massage in advance, but they should consider the following advice:

  • Try to arrive about 10 minutes early to fill out any paperwork before the appointment.
  • Inform the practitioner about any significant medical history, because Thai massage is not safe for some people with certain health conditions.
  • Come to the appointment wearing loose-fitting or athletic clothing. Try to avoid tight clothing because it can cause discomfort and limit the range of motion during the massage.

Thai massage also uses energy work, which involves applying pressure to specific points on the body to open channels that will improve the flow of energy throughout the body.
