In this technique, the receiver is lying on a mat on the floor. You will learn to glide along their body with your feet, occasionally using a stool for balance. You will explore working with Sen lines (energy lines) and Marma points (acupressure points) as well as incorporating oils and gentle stretches in the flow. This is a fantastic additional skill for any Thai Massage practitioner who usually works on a mat.
