Transitions – the overlooked secret in Thai Massage
Thai Massage education is not meant to be a collection of massage techniques that are strung together. It is more like an artistic dance that gracefully weaves together many techniques.
In order to accomplish this, you need to know not just the techniques themselves, but the transitions which connect them.
Both of these elements are essential and inseparable. However, often only the techniques are taught and the transitions are left to the imagination of the massage therapist.
Smooth transitions in Thai Massage are an art
This video bridges this gap by highlighting one of the transitions which is the best way to move from one side of a client to the other without breaking the flow of the session.
This presentation is an extension of the previous episode which talked about maintaining body contact. In this video of the “Tips And Tricks series” you will learn that Thai Massage transitions are an artistic and elegant way to maintain body contact.
Flow in Thai Massage
The best sessions are those where all the techniques are connected in a seamless flow. The clients should not even notice that you are moving around their bodies.
Dancing is a good comparison. The dancing couple moves seamlessly without breaking the flow. Every step connects to the other in a graceful way. That’s how Thai Massage should feel as well.
