Thai on the Table massage is a Win-Win, both for “the giver” and especially “the receiver.”
Our first thoughts while Molly, Susan, and Nancy were learning this uniquely different, relaxing, and effective massage was “WANT.” We could see and feel the positive health effects for our clients-and for our therapists. If there exists a therapeutic massage that is as beneficial to the massage therapist as it is to you, the receiver, it is Thai On The Table.
One has only to experience a Thai massage to become a believer in its effectiveness. You will want to book it regularly: gentle rhythmic rocking, circling, rolling, pulling, stretching, rotation, traction, and compression. This is what fun, non-invasive, easy on the client, easy on the therapist bodywork is all about. It’s a win-win!
So how is Thai On The Table different from traditional Swedish massage? Traditional Swedish Massage is the basic standard massage protocol that we therapists learn in American massage schools and it is comprised of five fundamental strokes. Thai On The Table is a modern day adaptation of traditional Thai Massage, which is an ancient healing system that combines acupressure, Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures inspired by Buddhist teachers.
In ancient times Thai massage was practiced on the floor or at ground level, but now through the creation of Thai On The Table, clients who can not easily move up and down from the floor position, can now enjoy the advantages and benefits of this amazing massage modality.
ADVANTAGES AND BENEFITS
Thai On The Table is provided on a comfortable, padded and heated massage table that is hydraulically raised and lowered to easily accommodate all clients. Likewise, the adjustable massage table will easily accommodate our therapists while encouraging their use of proper body mechanics which will save their bodies from repetitive wear and tear.
Thai On The Table is performed with the client fully clothed with loose fitting yoga or workout attire. It’s a ‘come as you are’ concept that our busy, health conscious clients enjoy.
If you prefer a less intense massage, but you need Deep Tissue results, Thai On The Table is an excellent alternative choice for you.
If you have specific problem areas that need to be addressed, more time and attention will be given to affect and improve those areas.
Thai On The Table is very effective for relief from chronic pain from a broad spectrum of ailments. From common everyday headaches to feeling tired overall, to limited range of motion due to chronically tightened muscle groups, Thai can relieve or minimize your pain.
Thai On The Table will leave you feeling relaxed with your stress level greatly diminished and your body feeling fully energized.
RESEARCH STUDIES (CAM, Complementary Alternative Medicine)
‘Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice’ (published 2015) revealed through six studies that participants experienced 25-80% reductions in their pain levels which lasted up to 15 weeks after receiving a Thai Massage.
Another study (published 2012) in the ‘Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies’ showed that people with the very painful condition of Scapulocostal Syndrome felt an intervention in terms of pain intensity, pain threshold, and overall muscle tension.
