Kinetic Thai Bodywork

Is Kinetic Thai Bodywork (KTB) the same as massage?


What it is
KTB utilizes traditional Thai massage time honored 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.


The clinical perspective of trigger point and acupoint systems together with the traditional Thai massage is a very effective modality for reducing or eliminating patterns of pain and/or restriction, often in cases that have failed conventional medical treatment.


It's good for relieving pain in most joints:

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


What it's NOT
Thai massage is done fully clothed, no lotions or creams are used during bodywork. 

Both therapist and client wear loose fitting clothing to facilitate movement for best therapeutic benefit.


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.


If you have pain when you:

  • Walk
  • Sit
  • Dance 
  • Drive
  • Type
  • Balance
  • Bend
  • Reach
  • Extend
  • Sleep


KTB can help. 


If you feel unstable when you:

  • Step
  • Turn
  • Pivot
  • Balance
  • Walk 
  • Run


KTB can help you too!

Thai Bodywork, also known as Thai Massage, is more that just massage.  An article published in www.bodyharmonics.com gives a good accounting of the similarities and differences.
