Thai Massage is a beautiful practice with 2500 years of history, but just as much aplicablity in the modern world. It is a tremendous skillset to add for movement and manual therapists, but it is also an enriching thing to learn for its own sake.
Although Thai Massage can be portrayed as exotic, contortionistic and painful, it is in fact a simple an pragmatic method for stretching, mobilizing and de-stressing muscle, fascia and nervous tissue. At the Ottawa School, we practice a contemporary approach that also takes into mind anatomy and the bio-psycho-social model of pain management.
