At Thai Yoga Massage Hitchin we blend modern myofascial treatment and traditional techniques to encourage improved function and general wellbeing. We call our approach Remedial Thai Bodywork (RTB).
From dealing with a specific injury to supporting your long term health and wellness goals, we can help you find a way forward.
What is Remedial Thai Bodywork?
RTB is a unique fusion of traditional Thai Massage, neuromuscular retraining and modern sports/remedial massage techniques. It differs from other forms of massage therapies in that no oils are used and the client remains fully clothed. Treatments are given on a floor mat or futon as opposed to a massage couch.
A combination of myofacial techniques, passive range of movement exercises and stretches are used to treat congestion and fibrous tissue in the muscles and joints, release tension and encourage normal function and healthy energy flow in the body. Ana draws upon her training in sports & remedial massage and various cognitive approaches to further maximise the benefits.
The result is an invigorating ‘workout’ of the soft tissues and joints.
How will I feel after a treatment?
Clients report feeling looser, relaxed and energised. Regular treatments can produce many benefits, including
- increased flexibility
- less injury
- increased energy and feelings of well-being
