Thai style massage on the mat is received clothed and can vary from intensive deep tissue  to very light careful work on fragile areas.  Thai massage  often includes hot compresses or cupping and the application of liniments.

Manual lymph drainage (MLD) relieves symptoms  of post-surgical or traumatic edema/(swelling) as well as chronic high-protein lymphedema.  MLD is a specifically delivered form of very mild skin surface level bodywork that targets the lymphatic system, but carries a wider effect to the nervous and muscular systems.  MLD can be beneficial in relieving pain for people whose conditions like fibromyalgia may not otherwise tolerate hands-on massage.

Complete decongestive therapy is also available.
