Frequently Asked Questions

How does Thai massage differ from “regular” massage? How should you prepare for a session?  This Thai Massage FAQ may answer your questions.

What should I wear?

Traditional Thai massage is performed on a thick mat, on the floor, rather than on a massage table.  You’ll stay fully dressed and will be most comfortable in stretchy clothes, like leggings or sweats.

Is the pressure deep or light?

Stretches are meant to go to your edge, but not in a painful way. The therapist will rhythmically press into your tissues in a way that’s both relaxing and energizing, using the palms, knees, feet, and thumbs.

What if I’m not flexible?

If you’re not flexible, this is actually a great bodywork style for you to gain mobility. Most stretches are done in sets of three:

The first is a gentle exploration

The second finds the stretch

The third gently encourages a deep stretch.

This gives you and your therapist a chance to notice before a stretch goes too far.

How is this different from Western massage?

Thai massage takes  a holistic approach to the body. It addresses both the physical body, with its deep pressing and stretches, and the energetic body, via the energy lines known as “sen”. There is more body contact between the client and practitioner–imagine relaxing as someone moved you through yoga postures.

Will I be comfortable on the floor?

The mat We use is a nice thick cushion. Some people feel more comfortable with additional pillows under their knees, or to support them in side lying.
