A basic fundamental for a good massage therapist is Agronomy.

How a small Thai female can affect a strong and big Thai warrior?.

Using her whole bodyweight in a way that she won’t get tired after 3 sessions.

The Thai-warrior massage was created to help the healing process of warriors in history.

An interesting thing about it, that this therapy exists long before we know how the body built from the inside. And so far, this is the best way to stretch the Thoracolumbar fascia.

The thoracolumbar connects over 5 different muscle groups. Imagine making an organization your mixed cable multi-socket.

A basic Thai worriers #massage. To those who do not know, the Thai massage is an Eastern therapeutic massage, a very ancient technique, long before autopsy was an every-day study technique. After learning and understanding the concept of this sequence of massage, I can clearly say there is no better way to release your Thoracolumbar fascia than this. The Thoracolumbar Fascia is a connective tissue that connects more #muscles to one area and then, to the fingers of your hands and legs. This area is therefore very hard to stretch since it connects a lot of directions and depths. To understand it, imagine you have a multi-electric socket with more connected sockets then your fingers. Now try to get a few centimeters more in a certain direction, but you can not disconnect one of the sockets, no easy task, isn’t it?
