About Bend & Stretch Thai Body Therapy

A Thai therapist uses muscle compression, range of motion work, rhythmic rocking, yoga-like stretching and energy-balancing techniques to help relieve pain and allow your body to perform at its' maximum level of flexibility and unrestricted movement. Even internal organ systems may benefit from this work. Many describe this as assisted yoga or assisted stretching, because the therapist will move you into various positions without exertion on your part.  You relax and reap the benefits of an overall feeling of rejuvenation, while the therapist provides the effort.  Thai Body Therapy is highly recommended for people who stand/sit throughout of the day, whether you work out regularly or not, trainers and athletes. It is also effective for those with some chronic health conditions such a fibromyalgia or arthritis.

Although Thai Body Therapy may seem new in the United States, it was developed by Buddhist monks more than 1,200 years ago.  At Bend & Stretch, this traditional approach to wellness is enhanced with other therapies such as reflexology, myofascial release, re-setting nervous system pain patterns, assisted stretching and energy balancing.

A session is performed on a massage table, a soft floor mat, or a massage chair.  You will wear loose clothing, such as a t-shirt and yoga or sweat pants in order to allow freedom of movement.  As you relax on your back, stomach, and sides, the therapist provides a head-to-toe program.

The benefits of a session at Bend & Stretch are:

  • Increased flexibility, range of motion and strength
  • Relief from stiff and sore muscles and joints
  • Relaxation of the mind and reduced stress
  • Improved circulation and detoxification for a stronger immune system
  • Increased and balanced energy
  • Individualized treatment to suit your specific needs.
