We have a whole bunch of beautiful poses and postures in Thai Massage, many of them derived from both (Indian) Yoga and Reusi Datton (Traditional Thai Yoga).
In Yoga, these positions, the poses, are called Asanas. With Thai Massage, probably even more than in Yoga, most of these poses can be done in a myriad of ways—and that’s I think one of the many powerful features of Thai Massage.
As sometimes said—Thai Massage is “Yoga for Lazy People.” It means we, the practitioner, do Yoga for you. And we do it creatively. And we do it just a little bit deeper than you can do it yourself.
There are basically no wrong poses or wrong ways to do them, except for certain precautions to take into account. In fact, only results may vary. It all depends on what someone can handle. What’s good, what’s healthy for the receiver? It depends on their particular issues. What’s their flexibility, what are their vulnerabilities?
Sure, it’s always good to check first on contraindications—and to go in slowly. Cautiously. There’s no wrong or right here. As said—it just depends.
It also depends on you, the practitioner—are you small or big, flexible or not, strong or not so. What can you handle? We all have our own limitations.
And it’s good to know what poses and positions do. What they can do. What they are supposed to do. Their benefits and their pitfalls. That helps you to decide what to do (or not to do) at particular moments, with particular clients.Related Topics
