Osteotai is a modern technique developed by Arno l`Hermitte and David Lutt.
It includes many of the principles and concepts of osteopathy and kinesitherapy, which are translated and implemented in the form of Thai massage (relaxation techniques, stretching, PIR, joint mobilizations and manipulations).
In its classic form, Thai massage is mainly aimed at working with the energy channels in the human body and balancing them.
In Osteotai, the focus is on working with anatomical structures, without forgetting that the human being is both a complex biomechanism and a subtle energy system.
The purpose of the therapy is to fully restore the body’s function, as well as to balance the energy system of the person.
The execution method is very different from that of classical massage systems. It is worked on a carpet, with the patient wearing comfortable clothes during the procedure. The massage is performed on the whole body. According to Eastern healing principles, a partial effect on an element of a given system is not effective.
Various mobilizations for the respective joints are integrated into the work process. The work methodology allows for easy inclusion of muscle relaxation and stretching techniques.
In order to apply Osteotai, the therapist must be well prepared at the level of anatomy, biomechanics and kinesiology, because the techniques are very precise.
