Origin of Thai Traditional Massage
Preparing the Receiver for
Comfort is an utmost consideration for the receiver of the Thai
massage. As it is applied to a clothed body, it is ideal for the
receiver's clothing be loose, thin, and be made of natural fabric.
The receiver should also be barefoot.
Before performing Thai massage to a person for the first time, it
is important that the receiver's medical history is checked to discuss
any present health problems. The masseur himself must clear his
mind of any extraneous thoughts before making any physical contact
with the receiver, so as to be fully centered on the receiver's
needs. Take slow breath with controlled exhalation to relax oneself.
Through out the routine the receiver himself should breathe normally.
