From the book "Thai Massage: Sacred Bodywork":
"Thai massage is an amazing synthesis of many techniques - leaning pressure, reflexology, energy line work, blood stopping, stretching, and yoga. To achieve all of these effects, Thai massage therapists use more parts of their bodies to give a massage than therapists in any other modality. They use their palms, thumbs, feet, elbows, forearms, and knees. The receiver is moved through a wide variety of postures within five positions - supine, side lying, prone, inverted, and seated. The work is done on a mat on the floor." NOTE: Clients remain fully clothed for Thai Massage. Be sure to wear loose fitting clothing such as sweats.
