Within the philosophy of Thai massage the Thai word lohm refers to free subtle movement within the body. Thai bodywork can affect the recipient on a multitude of levels. Gentle traction or lengthening is applied to groups of muscles to initiate release of holding patterns. Movement within the treatment promotes fluid function of joints. Passive stretching invites tissues to move beyond preconceived limits in a supported safe way.
