Traditional Thai Massage

What Happens During a Thai Massage?
Thai massage typically works with compression — rhythmic pressing movements directed into muscle tissues by the hand, fingers, elbow and knees. Thai massage usually takes place on a mat on the floor, with the client wearing loose or stretchy clothing like yoga gear. The therapist is also on the mat and moves your body into various stretches and positions, without any work on your part. This is why it is sometimes called "lazy man's yoga". Thai massage can be both relaxing and energizing.
The therapist uses a variety of different sequences of techniques on clients, who are either lying face up, lying face down, seated, or on their side. There is constant body contact between the therapist and the client, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked.
For an introduction to Thai Massage try a Thai Foot Massage. Similar to Reflexology it will stimulate the meridian end points throughout your body.
Thai Massage is an ancient form of massage developed by Buddhist monks in Thailand 2,500 years ago. It uses passive stretching and gentle pressure along the body’s energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension and balance the body’s energy systems.  

Because Thai massage is done fully clothed, some people recommend it if you feel uncomfortable with the nudity.  First, you're going to being lying on a mat on the floor with a therapist crouched over you, pressing on your legs, just to start. They might use the weight of their body to move your body into various positions to achieve passive stretching.
