Thai Massage Session Time

One of the things that is often talked about is the session time. How long should a Thai Massage session take? What is the optimal duration?

To be honest, I found there’s no general rule to it, but there are some things to be considered. For instance, one can hardly do a thorough full body massage (head to toes) faster than about 90 minutes. There’s just too much work to do to have it shorter.

But on the other hand, of course one can do a relax-session or a faster and more dynamic, energizing treatment. Like around 60 minutes. But in my opinion, an hour or so is a little too short to be able to do a more therapeutic full body treatment.

Nevertheless, there are always good “quickies,” so let’s not make a general rule of it. The massages I gave would normally take about 2 hours. It’s not that I set my alarm. It’s just the experience I have had with my sessions. It’s of course also a matter of style. My style. My natural speed. Another practitioner may well be having other time averages.

But then again, for example, in the case of a regular client who’s already “opened-up,” I think you could more easily manage doing shorter sessions. Maybe more as a sort of “regular maintenance.” Or more detailed, focused on specific issues if it’s in the therapy-sphere. Let’s say you have a client you treat every week or every two weeks; it would then make more sense to squeeze in a one-hour therapy-like session hitting on a particular problem.

Well, that’s how I see it. But I know there are other opinions in “the field.” There are practitioners who claim you can do excellent one-hour full body Thai Massages without skipping anything whatsoever. And they’re probably right.

Still, I can’t do it. It’s not my thing. I need time. I give time. Lots. It’s just the way I work and I suppose that’s all there is to it.
