What it is:


  • KTB utilizes traditional Thai massage techniques with a focus on connecting to the breath while relieving muscle knot trigger points to effectively help with pain, stress and reduced mobility.
  • Sessions are a deeply therapeutic experience that are interactive, relaxing and educational to help you understand your body better.
  • Thai massage is a very effective modality for reducing or eliminating patterns of pain and/or restriction, often in cases where conventional medical treatment has failed.



It's good for relieving pain in most joints:


  • Ankle
  • Knee
  • Hip
  • Shoulder
  • Elbow 
  • Wrist

What it's NOT

  • Not Nude: Thai massage is done fully clothed, no lotions or creams are used during bodywork.
  • Not a Nap: Although bodywork and Thai massage can be very relaxing - it is best to be awake during the sessions to communicate with your therapist during the process to get the most benefit and relief from the therapy.
