The healing art of Thai massage is a tradition that has been practiced for over 2,500 years. The intention of a Thai massage is to guide the recipient into a state of balance. A Thai massage is practiced on a mat on the floor and the recipient is fully clothed. The dynamic massage is a rhythmic combination of gentle stretching, compressions, energy work, acupressure, and assisted Yoga. As the receiver is moved through a sequence of postures tailored to his or her individual needs, tight muscles and busy minds are relaxed and stagnant energy becomes released stimulating the body’s healing process.

To prepare for a Thai massage, it is recommended not to eat at least one hour prior to the massage. Wear loose and comfortable clothing. For recipient’s comfort, it is advised to take time prior to session to cleanse the hands and feet.

Emily also offers Compressive Deep Tissue Massage. As described by her teacher, John Harris, this massage is used to alleviate chronic muscle tension, relieve post exercise soreness, stretch soft tissues, and helps to relieve myofascial pain. It also helps to initiate the relaxation response, and enhance overall health and wellness. This massage is often called barefoot deep tissue because the prolonged deep therapeutic compressions used in this massage are made with the feet.
