Thai Massage has a wide-ranging applicability and can help with many different issues. The initial consultation takes a wider look at you to identify why the problems may be there and treatment gives more feedback on what's going on. The aim is always to get to the bottom of the problem and deliver effective treatment, every time.
The first things which are obvious are that the treatment is usually done with the client fully clothed and that it's done on a floor mat, rather than a table. It also often doesn't use any oil (sometimes it does) and techniques are performed through your clothes, rather than directly onto the skin (as appropriate). ThaiOne's Traditional Thai Massage is tailored to your needs and will often differ from one appointment to the next (as your needs change).
The consultation allows me to get to know more about your daily habits, history and the problems you're having. It helps me (and you) better understand why these things may be happening and gives some time for us to talk a little before the massage starts (which can help you relax). It's also a time where I can explain how to maximise your session; this is important at the start of your journey to keep us on the best path. The consultation is so important for effective treatment that it is offered to you for free...
1 hour, 1.5 hours or 2 hours? It really depends on the extent of the treatment you'd like. The main issue will be worked first, then the secondary issue, etc. The more issues you have, the longer treatment times would be more appropriate. Clients regularly choose all difference durations, but new clients most commonly book for 1 hour (+ consultation). Contact me if you have specific queries about this.
Absolutely not!! Pain is not useful - tension cannot be forced out of your body, it must be eased out. So, you must be at ease! I will explain more about why this is the case during the consultation.
The treatment is adaptable. I have clients who I treat seated. Let's talk about any mobility issues when booking your treatment.
It all depends on how you respond to the treatment and the reason for booking. For many people, massage is an ongoing aid in maintaining good health and wellbeing. Some people come for specific issues and their treatment has more specific outcome goals. These factors will be part of ongoing discussions with each client. If I feel I this treatment is not going to help with your issue, I will advise you of this.
