the feet and a complete body massage follows, starting from a supine position, then side, then prone and
finishing in the sitting position.

In Thailand it lasts for about 1hour 30 minutes or more, here in Europe at least one hour, although one
hour and a half is recommended.
What is it good for?
Thai massage can help postural problems like cervical, lumbar muscle pain and joints, thereby relaxing the
contracted muscles and also extending to the peripheral nervous system, which helps complaints like vein strength loss.
The Thai massage technique of stretching helps body agility and normally the blood circulation improves.
Thai massage improves how you walk because the body moves better supporting every step.
