Thai massage is usually performed on the floor, and involves stretching and deep pressing. The receiver wears comfortable clothes that allow for movement. 

A full Thai massage session typically lasts one hour or more, and includes rhythmic pressing and stretching of the entire body. This can include pulling of fingers, toes, ears and even some cracking of the knuckles.

Some masseuses and masseurs who have been trained in traditional Thai massage may also walk on the receivers back, this may seem like punishment at first but actually feels rather good when finished.

One position they may get you into towards the end of the massage is called the 'cobra', this move entails arching the recipient into the cobra snake position and then twisting the back of the recipient.

Do not feel afraid when the therapist does this as they know what they are doing, and it feels great afterwards. There is a standard procedure and rhythm to this form of bodywork that you certainly enjoy.

Bangkok Body Work

If you have visited Thailand you will know how much massage is embedded in the culture and way of life of the Thai people. Traditional massage has been practised for thousands of years and passed down the generations.

If you ever visit a Thai family you quite often see the younger members of the family giving their Grand parents a good massage, helping them stretch out the body.

If you have been to Bangkok and other places in Thailand you will see a massage shop in nearly every street. They are very passionate about massage and understand the healing properties it has.
