Before going for a session, we advise that you eat a lighter meal as something heavy may leave you feeling bloated and cramped. Arrive five to ten minutes early to complete all necessary paperwork and so that you may have a moment to rest before the session begins. Bring a completed health history and be sure to notify your therapist if you feel discomfort at any time during the session.
Since Thai Massage is more intense than other forms, be sure to be in good health before scheduling a session. It should not be performed on healing bones, skin ailments or other health ailments. Pregnant women should also abstain from Thai Massage and choose from one of our many other options instead.
