Swedish Massage sessions - Franklin brings a table, leg bolster, sheets, and massage oil. You would provide an appropriate space for a table to be set up.
Thai Massage sessions – Franklin provides an appropriate mat and pillows for Thai Massage. The area for a Thai mat is larger than the area for a massage table, so the client will need a ﬂoor space roughly 8’ x 8’. The client does not disrobe for Thai Massage. Instead, the client wears loose-ﬁtting clothing such as pajamas or sweat pants and tee shirt. Anything that would be worn for yoga would be appropriate as well. The client lies down on the mat and is massaged by use of palm and foot compressions, integrating ﬁnger and thumb pressure on pressure points throughout the body. Additionally, Franklin guides clients into and out of passive yoga postures which require no effort from the client and are entirely conducted within the limitations of the individual. Thai Massage opens the ﬂow of energy through channels in the body to promote relief of tension and constriction, greater ﬂexibility, greater balance in the body, better sleep at night, and improved circulation, and digestion.
