Ashi-Thai is a traditional type of Thai massage. The techniques and exercises are designed to increase the flexibility and range of motion of the client. The therapist achieves this through deft maneuvering of the limbs into deep relaxing stretches that comfortable extended the targeted muscle groups.
While the client relaxes on a comfortable massage table, the therapist will find different muscles that need Ashi-Thai as they use overhead bars to establish position and their feet, body weight, and gravity to follow through. Ashi-Thai is performed without oil or creams and only requires the client to wear loose flexible clothing that can stretch easily.
