Intended for the massage professional, this book outlines 141 ways to stretch your client on the massage table and seated. Collected, refined and road-tested since 1988, these moves stretch your client safely, effectively and in ways that are comfortable for both of you. You will learn stretches for the client in the prone, supine, side-lying and seated position. You can design a whole routine with these stretches, or add only a few to the work you already do when indicated. A bonus section outlines a 45-minute self-stretch routine to keep your joints lubricated and to maintain or increase your own flexibility in a gentle and enjoyable way. Each move is fully illustrated in photographs and outlined in text. I began my studies of Thai Massage (which is done on a mat on the floor) early in my massage career. I saw that many of the stretches could be incorporated into massage on the table. Over the years, since 1988, I've picked up many moves from sports massage training, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi and many other modalities. This book is the culmination of those efforts.

I graduated from Seattle Massage School in 1988, began my studies in Thai massage soon thereafter and received my teaching certificate to teach in 1997. Since then I have maintained a private practice in Seattle. I teach internationally. In addition to The Passive Stretch Workbook, I also wrote The Thai Massage Workbook and produced three instructional DVDs.Review:
A clear, concise presentation of Thai massage techniques adapted for the table that are ergonomically safe when done correctly. The seated routine is energizing for the client and the self-stretches are excellent for self-care. Introducing these new skills into a session can really hint at what an authentic Thai massage on the mat is like. --Kristin Nutall, Registered Thai Therapist
