60 minutes goes by quickly but it is plenty of time for you to determine if we are a good fit for ongoing treatments. This 1-hour sequence is also a good option for "first timers" who wish to satisfy their curiosity about the form of bodywork. If you are a small person and you do not have a specific problem area of the body that you wish to have addressed this might be the best choice for you every time. I always prefer to have a longer appointment whenever I get a Thai Massage, but the hardest part is getting in the door.
75 minutes is a good choice for customers who are small and in great shape. When I say, "In great shape" I DO NOT mean slim and slender. I mean, a body that is not ridden with stiffness or restriction of movement. Possibly, you were considering a 1 hour treatment but you happen to be a medium sized person.
Just 15 min. added to the shortest option makes a difference in a Thai Massage experience.
If you have specific issues that you would like to have addressed by therapeutic massage during your session, 90 minutes is a good choice because this will give us enough time to complete a full body treatment AND give specific attention to your chief complaint.
In the past, 90 minutes was the typical duration for ThaiMassage-NYC studio visits. These days savvy customers are tending to book longer sessions.
I used to call this option "The Whole Thing" but now I find that I can no longer complete "everything" inside of two hours unless my customer is quite small and/or already very well experienced with this kind of bodywork.
Do your body a favor, give us the extra time we need to thoroughly work out the trouble spots.
2 & 1/2 hours !
In a Thai Massage session, time can actually go by surprisingly fast.
If you want to add on another half an hour just to make sure ...
If you don't want to miss the opportunity to be more thorough...
... this option is the way to go.
While in Thailand it is not uncommon to get 3 hours of massage. Not too many places on earth are further from Chiang Mai than NYC and the two could hardly be more different.
Find out how "far away" from NYC you can get inside of 180 min. without ever leaving the massage studio.
When two friends work together with pure intention, you become the conversation between them along with multiplied benefit.
Thai Herbal Heat Compress
In Thailand, the herbal compress is called luk pra kob, translated as “herbal pressing sphere.” To make the compress, a combination of healing herbs is bundled together in accordance with ancient recipes, steamed and placed directly on the skin or over clothing. Hot herbal compresses are frequently used in Thailand in conjunction with traditional massage. I use the compress to address chronic problems such as low back pain and soreness in the knees and ankles.
Therapeutic Ice Application
If you have any inflammation in your body, cold and compression is the best way to reduce it. Deep massage work may also introduce a beneficial inflammation, which will be reduced sooner with ice application.
Sometimes people follow the advice to apply ice after treatments, sometimes, maybe not.
Here, we offer to to do ice treatments for you.
Ultimate Inflammation Reduction
Transition from Heat to Ice and back again is the most effective treatment to reduce inflammation. This positively effects the tissue recovery process, supplanting the body's primary mechanism for healing damaged tissue.
