Thai Muscular Therapy
Thai Massage is a form of therapeutic bodywork from Thailand. It is characterized by fluid yoga-like stretching, passive joint movements, and rhythmic acu-point compressions. While very relaxing, Thai massage is known for inducing an energetic effect as well. It benefits the physical and mental well-being and is especially effective at releasing chronic muscle tension and reducing mental stress.
Neuromuscular Therapy is a form of bodywork that addresses chronic soft tissue tensions and pain, trigger points, and nerve entrapments. NMT is very effective at treating specific neuromuscular conditions like migraine headaches, TMJ dysfunction, rotator cuff pain, neck and lower back pain, piriformis syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and more.
Thai Muscular Therapy (TMT) is a combination of both. It’s performed on a Thai massage mat, or on a regular massage table, with the client fully clothed.
Through trial and exploration of what works and what doesn't with his clients, Slava Surya Kolpakov, LMT, developed TMT in 2007. He kept the structure, the setup, and the meditative attitude of Thai massage, while introducing effective techniques of NMT.
TMT triggers the relaxing and holistic experience of traditional Thai massage, while being an effective treatment for sports-related injuries, and chronic muscle tension and pain.
Slava practices TMT at his studio in Newton Center, MA. To learn more, and to schedule a session, please go to the studio's separate website:
