In Thai Massage there are many techniques in the side-lying position. After receiving hundreds of Thai Massage sessions here in Thailand, I always noticed that many therapists neglect to implement a few simple adjustments to make their clients comfortable in this position.
The problem is that unless your body is properly supported while lying on the side, there is not enough stability in this position. It tends to collapse with one leg sliding out.
This results in massage clients trying to maintain this position through their own effort by adjusting their body or stiffening muscles to prevent the sliding. And they should not have to do that – this is the job of the therapist.
The solution is very simple. It just requires two support pillows, and you end up with a very comfortable and stable Thai Massage side-lying position.
In this episode of the Thai Massage ‘Tips And Tricks’ series you will learn how to work correctly in the side position.
