We have the know-how you need.
Thai Massage is a form of bodywork that has been around for many 100's of years. Also known as Nuad Boran, Thai Yoga Massage, Traditional Thai Massage or Ancient Massage, this bodywork has it's origins in India and draws from the yogic tradition. The person accredited with being the founding father of Thai Massage is Ayurvedic doctor, physician & friend to the Buddha - Jivaka Khumar Bhaccha. Since this bodywork historically appeared in Buddhist temples as part of the Buddhist monks health care regime, it combines Yogic and Buddhist philosophies, yoga postures, Ayurvedic principles and martial arts style moves. Thai Massage is a comprehensive full-body treatment that manipulates & stretches tissue, mobilizes joints, moves energy, can relieve discomfort among other things and is effortlessly modified as needed to suit the receiver.

HERE'S WHAT METTA MOVEMENT IS DOING TO TAKE EXTRA CARE OF YOU DURING THESE EXCEPTIONAL TIMES:
• You will be sent a digital version of a standard Covid questionnaire and New Client Intake form (if applicable) the day before your session. These are Google forms & can both be submitted digitally too. Your session will be confirmed based on the responses to both forms.
• Treatments are taking place in well-ventilated spaces and even outdoors, if desired, when the weather is compatible.
• The practitioner wears a fresh set of clean clothes for each session changing both before & after the massage.
• The massage surfaces and props are cleaned thoroughly right before and immediately after the session.
• You are asked to provide your own clean flat light coloured sheet & clean pillow case. And, will be asked to remove it yourself from the mat or table after the session.
• The practitioner wears a disposable, single use non-medical mask when giving the treatment and also adds a visor when working around your skull and face. When entering your home, a face covering is worn indoors switching to non-medical mask for the session.
• If it makes you more comfortable to also wear a mask you can but it's NOT necessary.
• Table Thai and Tok Sen and Traditional Thai mat sessions are available.
• If booking a home visit, please be sure there is a well ventilated space in your home large enough to accommodate the massage table or mat with room to walk around it comfortably. ( approx 7x9 )
