ABOUT ELEVATE THAI MASSAGE
We approach Thai massage as a physical and energetic practice infused with and informed by the healing concepts of traditional Thai medicine. Thai massage balances the major movement pathways of the body and is beneficial to soft tissue dysfunction and pain. Emotional, mental and spiritual benefits result from giving and receiving Thai massage as well.
Traditionally, Thai massage is practiced on a mat on the floor. Many of the traditional Thai massage moves on the mat can be translated to the table, however, body mechanics, angles and positioning often need to be altered in order to produce the intended results. It’s difficult to treat the table exactly the same as the mat because it is not level with the ground. Many of the giving positions in traditional Thai massage revolve around kneeling and using the floor as a counter to the joint movements and pressure. It’s not impossible to translate the work to the massage table. It just takes knowledge of what each technique is supposed to accomplish so that the adaptation for the table gets that same result without compromising client or practitioner safety.
