Thai Bodywork is a healing session during which the practitioner uses his palms, elbows, and feet to compress muscles, stimulate pressure points, and gently stretch the body, allowing it to relax and open. The Thai method creates space between muscles, realigns and decompressed joints, and eases and soothes body tension.
Thai bodywork is Provided by Paul Crapol (by appointment only), please contact Paul directly for pricing, details, and to make an appointment at firstname.lastname@example.org
