Thai massage is great for everyone, but especially beneficial to those looking to increase their flexibility and range of motion. This often includes athletes and people with limited flexibility due to extensive time at a desk or driving.
Thai massage is a form of bodywork that actually originated in India but is now commonly practiced throughout Thailand. It differs from western forms of massage in that it is performed on a floor mat (instead of a on a massage table) and the receiver remains completely clothed. It consists primarily of static and rhythmic compressions and assisted stretches. Thai massage is often referred to as “Thai yoga” or “lazy man’s yoga” because of this.
The short answer is “everyone”, but I often recommend Thai massage to athletes and anyone else looking for increased flexibility and range of motion.
Comfortable clothes that you can easily move in. Yoga or exercise clothes are great. (Denim is not.)
