Thai massage is more than a series of techniques applied to the external physical body. It includes soft tissue manipulation, but the emphasis is on stretching and loosening the body and working with the energy flow within. The spiritual aspect is important and practitioners work in the spirit of loving kindness and compassion. Massage given in this way is a healing experience for both giver and receiver.
