Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions. The recipient remains
clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the
giver and receiver, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is
compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked.
The recipient wears loose, comfortable clothing and lies on a mat or
firm mattress on the floor. The receiver will be positioned in a variety
of yoga-like positions during the course of the massage, that is also
combined with deep static and rhythmic pressures.
