Thai Massage is a 4 century-old healing system combining acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures. The massage generally follows designated lines ("sen") in the body.
The legs and feet of the giver are used to align and relax the body and limbs of the recipient. The use of gentle rocking, thumb pressure and rhythmic compression helps the body be prepared so the recipient feels “invited” to receive the deep and gentle assisted stretch. The treatment style is slow, deliberate, gentle, and noninvasive.
A full Thai massage session includes rhythmic pressing and stretching of the entire body which the giver will adjust to fit the receiver.
Thai Massage is a mat based session during which the client wears light, loose comfortable clothing.
At Holistic Massage of Hood River, Thai massage is offered by Comice.
