Christina Lofaro graduated from the Thai institute in Arlington Virginia and went on to further her studies to become a certified Thai Massage teacher. She’s a certified yoga teacher and has traveled to Thailand in 2017 to explore further workshops and the culture first hand. The massage generally follows designated lines (“sen”) in the body. She is clearning out stagnant energy in your body. If you think of these lines as a water hose and your daily experiences and activities put kinks into your hose (or energy lines) So during the massage I untangle the hose and open up your lines so fresh water (new energy) can flow in. A full Thai massage session typically lasts an hour and a half or more, and includes rhythmic pressing and stretching of the entire body. This may include pulling fingers, toes, ears, cracking knuckles, walking on the recipient's back, and moving the recipient's body into many different positions. There is a standard procedure and rhythm to the massage, which the giver will adjust to fit the receiver. If you are a Athlete I tend to use stronger pressure and if you are just looking to relax we gently clear the lines. Any one can benefit from a good Thai Massage.
