If you’re looking for an Ashi Thai massage treatment in Palestine, then you might want to check out Jamie’s Therapeutic Touch.
Ashi Thai is a combination of Thai stretching and compression; the therapist maneuvers limbs into deep relaxing stretches and compression of muscle tissue is applied throughout the session, helping to release spasm, muscle contraction and tension, working within a perfect range of pressure. All techniques are applied with foot pressure.
In an Ashi Thai session, the client relaxes on a comfortable massage table while the therapist stands on the table holding onto overhead bars for balance and support, using their feet to deliver the massage.
