A Unique Form of Massage: "The lazy person's yoga"
Thai massage differs from Western forms of massage in two ways:
1) Remaining fully clothed and relaxed during the massage, the receiver is assisted in yoga postures that stretch and facilitate the release of toxins.
2) The massage takes place on the floor and not on a table. This allows the giver to create the rhythmic movement of the massage while the receiver is held in a yoga posture.
