What is Ashi-Thai?


You’ve been hearing us talk about our new bar installation and this awesome thing called Ashi-Thai. Still left questioning what it really is? This might help just a bit:

SONY DSCAshi-Thai is an expression of traditional Thai massage techniques and exercises, where the therapist maneuvers your limbs into deep relaxing stretches. In an Ashi-Thai session, the client relaxes on a comfortable massage table while the therapist stands on the table holding onto overhead bars for balance and support, using their feet, body weight and gravity to deliver the massage and apply deep stretches.

It is performed without any oils or creams, and requires the client to wear loose flexible clothing, allowing the therapist to stretch the client’s passive body beyond its holding patterns. Clients of every age and size can benefit from this massage, famous for back and hip pain relief, increased flexibility, and deep relaxation. Ashi-Thai is an effective bodywork treatment for all types of athletic injuries.

** Ashi-Thai is not recommended during pregnancy, or within 6 weeks of any surgery. Please discuss with your massage therapist any potential health concerns before trying Ashi-Thai **
