Thai Massage Being fully clothed provides a different experience to most Massages. There is a freedom it brings the body when being moved in different directions. What it makes me think of is the flexibility that a baby has. Odd analogy I know when a baby is being dressed its’ body is loose and trusting of the adult,therefore moves and flexes in amazing ways. When I give myself over to the Massage, the process and Joe as the expert this is what I am able to experience and feel within my body. Jules Wyman – Positive Belief
